In our day to day life, we just do the things we are told traditionally since the beginning. The moment our printer says that cartridges are out of ink, we immediately open the drawer, take out the new ink cartridges and install it on the go. The fact of the matter is the message about the ink goes out isn’t accurate all the time. There is still some amount of ink left inside the cartridges. This tiny article will help you reset the Epson Ink Cartridge Chip and not to waste the ink anymore.
Like the router/modem or your DVR ink cartridges have also a reset button. A button which will lead to saving some money instead of wasting it. Remember, resetting an ink cartridges chip isn’t an easy task. If you don’t have enough patience or you aren’t mature enough don’t try this at home or at your workplace. Ask the desktop support administrator to do the same or call the nearest dealer if possible.
