They are not resettable. This is one of the downsides to using refilled cartridges for this style cartridge. You should be able to tell the printer to ignore the ink levels and just print until it runs out of ink.
To refill epson cartridges, you will need a resetter of the cartridge to restore the ink level back to full content.
You can buy a spongeless cartridges with an autoreset chips for your printer so that you will not need the ink cartridge resetter anymore since it will auto reset. This is my suggestion since spongeless cartridges are easy to refill than the genuine cartridges. Hope you can find in your area. If not, you can go to the nearest ink refilling center in your area and you can let them teach you if they will. Hope it would help.
Before you can have unlimited refilling you must need this devices:
Option 1: The chip resetter which you will need to manually reset the cartridge before refilling to enable the printer to recognize a new cartridge.
Heres the link where you can buy the resetter: http://cgi.ebay.ph/CHIP-RESETTER-For-EPSON-T5591-T077120-T078120-T0791-INK_W0QQitemZ290276640766QQcmdZViewItemQQptZBI_Toner?hash=item4395d607fe
Option 2: You a new set of empty cartridges with autoreset chips in it. No manual resetting needed, what you need is to refill and monitor the ink level.
Explanation: When the printer detected that the cartridge is empty, the printer sends data to the cartridges and the cartridge understand what the printer says, then the cartridge automatic chip resetter will re trigger the logic circuit built in into it to reset into full ink level.
Here is the link of the autoreset chip what Im taking about:
Go to all in one program at the top left click on Maintain\Troubleshoot Right window click on Device Status And Ink Levels that will open a new window Click on The button that looks like 4 different colored ink drops Click on Install a new print cartridge Click on Next Now you should be in Select The cartridge installed Open lower drop down window and click on No its new Follow the prompts from there or click OK This should fix the problem.
I have a couple questions for you.
1. Is your cartidge 42 or 42A? The 42 cartridge will not work if you refill it. I learned that the hard way after paying to have it refilled and I got it home and it would not print. If you are using the 42A refillable cartridge, your ink levels will not reset. I called lexmark to ask them after not bieng able to find any answers online. He said that because I am using the 42A, it will print but will not register the level. The only downside is I have to keep an eye out for fading so that I do not ruin the printer heads.
“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.
To get your printer to recognize the new cartridge; go to start - printer and faxes -right click on printer - preferences (printing preferences) -settings -load factory settings. Print test page Ctrl+P
