Chip Resetter Guide

Based in the UK InkMan supplies Chip Resetters for Epson, Brother and Canon printer ink cartridges

Instructions for use
Resetters have a number of notches in the mouldings, these are designed to couple with the various Epson black and colour chipped cartridges. Where necessary we also supply a bracket or brackets for the different designs of cartridges.
If your cartridge needs a bracket - the appropriate bracket should be fitted to make it easy to line the chip up to the pins on the chip resetter. We show below some images for early Epson chipped cartridges, where a bracket is not needed. All recent Epsons use slim individual inks and a appropriate bracket will be supplied.

Reset Procedure for Older Epson cartridges:

1.Align the cartridge to the correct notch on the reset unit so that the chip contacts and the pins on the resetter meet.

2.Keep the two units in firm contact. If the red light is flashing, it shows the two units contact well.

3.When the red light turns to green, it shows the reset operation has been successful.


4.The cartridge is now ready for refilling with ink.

Resettting newer slim epson ink cartridges

The pictures (below) show, a plastic guide plate is included for positioning the cartridges used in the printers.

When resetting these cartridges, the plastic guide plate should first be attached to the edge of the reset unit, as shown. The cartridge should then be brought up to the resetter so that the side of the cartridge is in contact with the plastic guide plate.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING

1.After the red LED flashes, it stays on and doesn't turn green

a). The pins on the resetter are not in good contact with the chip on the cartridge. The contacts may have dirt or residue on them.

b). If the ink cartridge is not an original Epson brand ink cartridge, the chip may be not compatible with the resetter.

c). If the ink cartridge is an original Epson brand ink cartridge, the chip may be burned out or Epson may have changed the chip design. The YXD268 Chip Resetter still can work with this kind of ink cartridge to reset the ink level, only the green light wont shine, the red LED does.

2.The printing quality is not up to standard

a). The quality of the ink you are using may be inferior. We recommend using inks that are specifically matched to Epsons original colors and other characteristics. (Especially if you are printing digital photographs and expect to achieve matching colours.)

b). Air bubbles trapped in ink. To avoid this, inject the ink VERY slowly. Also, allow the cartridge to rest for 24 hours with the ink exit nozzles facing down before using.

It has been evident for several years that printer manufacturers make far more revenue for their company profits from replacement cartridge sales than they can ever conceive of accumulating from printer sales - The possible figures are staggering - and particularly extreme with low cost entry level printers. When one realises that cartridges contain ink and that over the years manufacturers have progressively been reducing the quantity of the ink fill that they supply in cartridges (with very few exceptions) - It means that customers pay more per print with newer printers than they did with older models.

This is the case with Hewlett Packard and Lexmark where cartridges have been made progressively smaller in size. e.g. Just a few years back HP sold cartridge for home user inkjets which contained 40mL of ink - Latest HP offerings as little as 5mL per cartridge!!

The only serious way to save cash with HP Lexmark Dell and a few others is to refill the cartridge with ink - This is basic recycling and is the cheapest way to run printers as it is replacing the raw commodity used - Ink. HP & Lexmark attach the print head onto their cartridges so this is another reason to recycle as purchasing a new cartridge means that the print head is replaced for a new one - Not a bad thing but - not always essential as the empty cartridge has a reusable printhead - refilling these type of cartridges avoids the need to always be replacing this expensive part.

Epson and Canon put the printhead into the printer as a re-usable part and make the part which contains the ink a much simpler "Ink tank" - These are much cheaper to produce / copy and many clone cartridges have appeared over the years some as good as the original for quality of prints.

These compatible cartridges have been increasingly undermining Epson's market share of the replacement inkjet cartridge market.

It is an indication of how much the after market sales of ink cartridges matters to Epson profits, that this manufacturer has been raising actions in the UK High Court citing infringement of Intellectual Property and Patents which Epson hold on their Ink Tanks. In the UK none of five (or more?) actions (or threat of action) has been tested in the courts as in the first 3 cases we know of the companies written to and threatened with High Court Action have backed down - settled "Out of Court" and agreed with Epson not to continue selling compatible cartridges which infringe. The UK ink cartridge manufacturer Jettec (whose cartridges we sell on www.proprint.co.uk also settled with Epson - Jettec have their own patents on their cartridges and this was the first instance of a cartridge manufacturer reaching an amicable settlement never to have ceased production and continuing with production of Epson compatibles to this day.
