You can buy a Chip Resetter for around £5.00(Try E Bay)
this will reset the chips on the cartridge. Or you can buy refillable
cartridges which are self (Chip) resetting

My Epson Stylus Photo R265 is not allowing IJT Direct compatible ink cassettes to be used - they load into the printer OK. What can I do to make them work?


The compatable inks you use will depend on how old your printer is
Epson change their printer every few months changing the chips so if you have a very early printer you need the earlier chipped compatables

Non epson ink in r220 printer


Yes, you will need to purchase a chip resetter to get this to work. They work by resetting the firmware in the printer to accept non epson chipped ink. You can pick these up online for around £20.00

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Highly possible that the "compatable" cartridges are not really compatable or that Epson has updated software or firmware to keep them from working. Try replacing with Epson cartridges or see if the non-OEM brand seller has a resetting device so the printer sees those cartridges as full.

Replacment inks


Two ways round this one. 1. Download this software www.ssclg.com install it and learn to use it- it carries out many functions for Epson printers. 2. Prize off the chip on an emptied of original Epson cartridges ans replace the compat chips with the Epson ones. Set the above utility to reset the cartridge chips 0r Purchase from most the the ink supplier a Zip-It chip re-setter. Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
