Epson is the leading brand of inkjet printers in the world. These are also known as “smart printers” due to their ability to read images from a computer and print them directly, without the need for any user intervention after scanning through several menus. There are many advantages of using an Epson printer rather than another brand, but there are also some serious downsides. One of these is that, in most cases, you cannot refill your own cartridges with third-party ink or reuse them again once they have been printed. Instead, you need to buy a new one each time the old cartridge runs out. The good news is that there is a workaround for this Epson feature. You can reset the chip inside your empty cartridge so that it appears as if it’s still full again. In this article, we will explain how to reset your Epson ink cartridge chip without using a resetter and continue using your original cartridges as many times as you like!
How To Reset Epson Ink Cartridge Chip Without Resetter?
Step 1: Find the reset button on your printer
Some printers have a reset button on the inside, while others have it on the outside. You can only use the reset button to reset ink cartridges that have a chip inside them. In order to find the reset button, follow these steps: Remove the printer cover and look for the “Reset” button. If you don’t see it, you probably have an older printer without a reset button. In this case, you will have to use another method to reset your cartridge.
Step 2: Turn off the printer and leave it for 5 minutes
With the reset button in the “off” position, press and hold the reset button for 5 minutes.
Step 3: Press and hold the “Reset” button
After turning on your printer, keep pressing and holding the “Reset” button for about 20 seconds.
Step 4: Turn on the printer, without letting go of the button
Wait for the ink lights to turn green and then let go of the reset button after 10 seconds.
Step 5: Release the reset button after 10 seconds
Now you can release the reset button, but make sure that you do it after 10 seconds.
Why Do You Need A Printer?
For printing business documents
You can print business documents at home. If you are a business owner, you may need to print your business documents and reports at home. If you have a printer, it will be very convenient for you to do this task.
For printing photos
If you have a digital camera, why don’t you print your photos? You can print them out and put them on the wall or in an album. Your family and friends will be happy to see your photos.
For printing pictures from the Internet
You can download pictures from the Internet for free with your computer or mobile phone. You can also print these pictures with your printer if you want to treasure them forever.
For printing school assignments or work reports
If you are a student in junior high school or high school, it is important for you to learn how to write papers and reports using a word processor such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs. It is important that these papers and reports are neat, clear, and easy to read so that teachers can understand what they say easily when they read them later on (especially if they are not native English speakers). One of the ways that students can make their papers better is by having their own printer at home so that they can print out their work before handing it in as homework assignments or projects (if they have classwork). Students may also need to print out assignments from teachers during class time as well as after school time (if they do not have a computer of their own at home).
For printing out photos and pictures from online
If you use the Internet, you can print out photos or pictures by using a printer. You can print them out so you can put them in an album or put them on the wall. Your family and friends will be happy to see your photos on the wall or in an album. It is also fun to print out funny photos that you want to show your friends and family members.
For printing out work from class
If you study at home, you may need to print out assignments from class so you can use them to study and finish the work. You can also print out your homework so you can check it over before handing it in the next day.
For printing documents at home
If you have a job or do business at home, it will be convenient for you to have a printer at home so you can print documents when needed. It is also nice to be able to print things like birthday cards for friends and family members at home instead of having to go out and buy them from a store (where they may not have that particular card that someone wants).
For printing out labels for CDs, DVDs, VCD, or game discs.
If you like to collect CDs, DVDs, VCD, or game discs (like I do), then it is nice to be able to print out labels that look professional and neat so you can put them on the disc cases. It is also nice if the printer has a CD/DVD tray so you can print out labels directly on the disc cases without having to print them out separately and stick them on afterward.
For printing out newspaper and magazine articles.
If you read a lot of newspapers or magazines at home, it may be convenient for you to have a printer at home so that you can print out articles that are important to you (or funny ones). You can keep these articles in a scrapbook and read them again in the future whenever you want. You may also want to save these articles so you can use them as references in your own work or studies later on when needed. If there are articles that describe something interesting that happened in your city recently, it would be nice if they were printed out because they would make great souvenirs later on when they are kept in an album or scrapbook (especially if they are full color). If there are any news stories about celebrities that happened recently, it would also be fun to have these printed out for everyone else to see too!
For printing photos from digital cameras or camcorders at home.
If you have a digital camera or camcorder, it will be convenient for you if you can print your photos at home instead of having to go to a store to get them developed. You can also print out a photo that you like and put it on the wall for decoration at home.
The reset button can be used to reset all types of Epson ink cartridges. However, the reset button is not always reliable. If you have an old printer or if you have not used it for a long time, there is a chance that the reset button will not work. In this case, you can use another method to reset your cartridge. The methods listed in the article are easy to use and do not require any special equipment. With these instructions, you can continue to use your original cartridges as many times as you like. It is a cheaper and more eco-friendly option compared to buying a resetter.
Q1. What if the reset button is still not working?
A1. If you have tried all the methods listed in the article but your cartridge still does not work, then it is possible that your cartridge has been damaged. You can try to send it to Epson for repair or buy a new one instead of trying to fix it yourself.
Q2. How long will I be able to use my original cartridges?
A2. The length of time that you can use your original cartridges depends on how often you print and what type of ink cartridges you have (i.e., black ink cartridge or color ink cartridge). If you print less than once a month, then your original cartridges should last for at least two years without any problems. On the other hand, if you print more than once a month, then your original cartridges should last for at least six months without any problems. It also depends on how much ink is left in each cartridge when you start using it. For example, if your black ink cartridge has a 75% full tank of ink when you start using it, then it will probably last longer than if it had a 50% full tank of ink when you started using it.
Q3. Are there any risks to using the reset button?
A3. No, there are no risks to using the reset button as long as you follow the steps listed in the article correctly and do not force it inside your printer. However, if you force it inside your printer then it will not work and may damage your printer instead. You should also make sure that you do not leave your cartridge inside your printer for longer than one hour because this can damage your cartridge too.
