You don't refill cartridges, you replace them. there are no chips on them or anything because they are disposable once the ink is out. go to office max or something and just buy new cartridges. that's it

My husband wants to print something tonight! I refilled the black cartridge on his Kodak ESP 3250, but the printer still thinks it is empty. He does send away for his ink, but is frustrated because he...


DONT REFILL CARTRIDGES!!!

Most new cartridges are fitted with page count chips.

The chips blow after a certain amount of pages.

So just filling the cartridge with ink wont help

HOW DO YOU RESET PRINTER CHIP ON ESP7


On the ESP5 printers the cartridge has a "chip" and unlike other printers that have tried the "chip" method to keep you buying their ink cartridges, however they did not do it right from a business point of view. The installed a chip on the cartridge that "remembers" how much it has been used, which means it can be "reset" however Kodak, a very smart and innovated company, they watched all the other printer companies and saw what they were doing wrong, so when they saw the chip reset ability the came out to be able to refill the ink cartridge, they fixed the problem by using a simple fix.
They have a serial number only "read only" chip on their ink cartridge and the printer its self remembers the serial number so you cannot reuse the cartridge, now as you might think there is a limit on how many it will remember so I use my printer a lot so I kept all my cartridges to see how many it remembers before it overwrites the older numbers, unfortunately I found the number to be twenty so you would need twenty one cartridges and I keep track of them by having a number on them so I don't mix them up.
So the way it would work is you can without modifying your printer, it you first would need to buy twenty one color and twenty one black ink cartridges, number them to keep them in order then when you refill a cartridge you take the oldest one next to place into your printer and it will read as new. I know this is a wild way to do it but it works.
I have tried to remove the internal battery in the printer so the memory resets and that works but I also have to reload the printer firmware every time I change the cartridge to reset the memory and that is a lengthy and difficult thing to do each time you need a new ink cartridge. I also found that the firmware reload will not rest the numbers unless you remove the memory battery in the printer, another brick wall.
I am still working on a way to get the printer to reset the serial numbers more easy and haven't found a way yet but I will eventually find a way to do it so keep your eyes open on the internet because it will be in all the internet tech news when I make an easy and effective way to reset the printers serial number memory.
But until then the twenty one cartridge method is the easiest but a bit annoying to have twenty cartridges laying around just so you can refill them. Actually from a company point of view, Kodak was brilliant with this method to keep people buying real kodak ink cartridges, because the read only serial number chip on the ink cartridge, cannot be rewritten, it is like the difference between the memory in a computer, the ROM and RAM, ROM "Read Only Memory" and RAM "Random Access Memory" you can write to the RAM but you cannot write to the ROM so most ink cartridges use a writable memory chip, so the information on the amount of ink stays on the chip on the ink cartridge, and the Kodak uses a Read only chip and stores the information on the amount of ink in the cartridge within the printer its self so a chip resetting device will not work.
I am thinking I can make a cartridge like device that will click into the Kodak printer that will cycle threw twenty serial numbers so a user can reuse the cartridge after refilling it.
So keep watching the internet tech news and when it is available your will see the news of it.

Try unpluging your printer for a few minutes, turning it back on and printing a test page. This worked for me.

Hello,

All paper that will fit your paper tray will work. However, it is questionable that all ink will. Each cartridge has a unique chip inside that instructs the printer what the fluid level is and if its been refilled. To keep one cartridge design from being used in the wrong printer there is usually a design in the shape so that it will either not fit or not lock in place.

You can use any Kodak paper, yes. You cannot use any cartridge, no.

Best,

Print cartridge reset


I see that this is still listed as not being solved. Like I had said before you cannot refill these cartridges or you're going to have image quality problems or ink leaking in your printer.

Print cartridge reset


The printer will always tell you if the cartridge is empty if it is. The cartridges for the all-in-ones can't be refilled. The reason they can't be refilled is because in the ink tank is foam kind of like in a marker. Refilling it would most likely cause problems with printing. You can order off of www.kodak.com though if you have you don't have time to go to the store.

How do you reset the chip in the new Kodak Ink Cartridges ?


I've got a solution. We should find a way to file a class action lawsuit against these companies. Not just for ourselves, but for the environment itself. For years I've had issues with bad printheads and the ink costing more than a newer printer that comes with ink! That ink is toxic to the environment. I know places like Staples offer incentives to recycle them now. But what about the years before? Not to mention the idea of an entire printer going to a landfill since it's 'no good' anymore. Plastic produced from crude oil, logic boards silicon, lcd panels, steel roads, etc. Those are finite resources that don't just replenish themselves. What do these companies think will happen when those resources are exhausted and our planet is tainted with toxic chemicals? All the money in the world can't fix that! Nor will it fix what's already been done for decades. If anyone here knows a 'good' attorney willing to undertake this and is ready to have us sign up let me know. Knowing the ink is still in the cartridge that has to be recycled burns me. Knowing the companies that rob us blind, and most likely reuse those same cartridges, just to get even richer disgusts me. If our economy is in shambles why let these bastards push us further into the financial muck any further than we are already?!?!?!
