How to R&R a microchip from an Epson cartridge
DO NOT touch the gold contacts on the chips.
Any form of static electricity can erase the chip's memory.
Skin oils will cause sufficient insulation on the chips' gold contacts to prevent the chip from registering with the printer. Once the chips are installed on the cartridge, be sure to unplug the printer's 110 cord from the wall as well as the USB cable from the printer.
If you fail to unplug the printer when you install or remove the cartridges, you will erase the chip's memory. A chip with the memory erased cannot be restored. Any chip that gives you a red error light message has either been erased or has skin oils on it. Skin oils can be wiped off using 99% isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth. Chips MUST be placed on the correct cartridge. You cannot use the yellow chip on the black cartridge ETC. DO NOT mix chips from another manufacturer with our chips, because they probably will not work. NEVER EVER attempt to install a cartridge into the printer without a chip on the cartridge. If you do you will destroy the tiny gold wires inside the printer that the chips make contact with.
The "Always Full Chip" will reset itself in a number of different ways:
1 - Fully automatic.
2 - The ink levels will go down to the very bottom on the Epson status monitor. When they reach the bottom, the red error light will come on one of the printer buttons. Push on the button with the red error light and wait 1 minute. If it does not reset, turn the printer off and wait 30 seconds and turn it back on.
3 - A window will appear to tell you that
this is not an Epson original cartridge. This is a scare tactic that
Epson writes into the printers mother board. Simply ignore what it says
and click yes. You want to print anyway. Please understand, the chip
cannot read ink levels in the cartridge. It simply fools the printer
into believing that the Cartridge or Bulk Feed System still has ink in
the cartridge. To remove your old chips, take a sewing needle and pry
the chip off the cartridge from the upper right hand corner of the chip.
Be careful as you pry with the needle that the chip does not fly off and
hit you in the eye.
