Few things are more frustrating than refilling the ink cartridge for an Epson printer and then having the printer refuse to recognize that it now has ink when attempting to print from a computer. Many owners of Epson printers become frustrated and end up either purchasing Epson ink cartridges or giving up on the printer altogether. Neither of these options is palatable. Fortunately, there is a way to reset an Epson ink cartridge chip so that the printer recognizes the refilled ink cartridges.

What the Epson Ink Cartridge Chip Does
The ink cartridge chip is a special feature in Epson original equipment ink cartridges that notifies the printer of the cartridge's status. When the ink cartridge is empty, the chip conveys that information to the printer. Consumers who refill these cartridges with ink refill kits on their own find that the printer does not recognize that the cartridge is no longer empty. The printer only recognizes fresh ink when a brand new Epson ink cartridge enters the print head. The other option is to use alternative methods to reset the ink cartridge chip.
Resetting the Epson Ink Cartridge Chip With SoftwareA freeware program called SSC Service Utility enables users to download and install software that helps to manage their Epson printer. The software offers several functions, one of which is resetting the ink cartridge chip. Other settings allow users to freeze the internal ink counters or to reset the internal ink counters. It supports over 100 Epson printer models, but some printers may not respond to the commands from the software. You can also use Cracked Cartridge Chip if you don't know how to use the software.

Using a Cartridge Reset Tool
A cartridge reset tool is a small plastic piece that fits against the cartridge. The contacts on the reset tool correspond to the contacts on the printer's ink cartridge. When connected to the ink cartridge, the cartridge reset tool indicates the resetting of the ink cartridge with a green LED light. The reset tool is beneficial not just for resetting the chip, but also for allowing the printer to use all of the ink in the cartridge.How To Reset an Epson Ink Cartridge Chip With a Cartridge Chip Reset Tool

Troubleshooting Issues With the Reset Tool
Buyers should be sure to check the description for each reset tool carefully to determine whether they can reset their Epson printer cartridge with the tool. If the wrong cartridge is attempted or the reset tool is simply unable to reset the cartridge, users see either a red LED light or no light at all. In some cases, they simply cannot reset the chip any further. Before disposing of a reset tool, always test it on multiple ink cartridges. Purchase Other Ink Refills
The Epson ink cartridge reset chip is only a problem when using genuine Epson ink cartridges. If users wish to avoid problems with the chip altogether, then another option is to purchase printer refill ink cartridges that are equivalent to the Epson versions, but made by other companies. These cartridges are often less expensive than Epson original equipment and the chips within them reset automatically.
