Waste ink tube epson artisan 50

I use a CIS ink system on my Epson artisan 50. It hasn't reached the waste counter maximum yet, and I haven't attached the waste ink tube, but before I try, I need the software command to reset that counter, otherwise the printer will stop working.
My CIS is very good, but when Epson senses a "cartridge" out of ink, a simple button resets the cartridge. Problem is, the printer then runs a clean cycle, and everybody knows how much ink Epson wastes doing this. With a waste ink bottle and bulk ink, I can print oodles of images for very little money, but that counter...
On my old Epson 220, which I ran for years with a CIS, I used the ssc service utility courtesy our Russian friends, but apparently it's not compatible with the Artisan 50.
Any suggestions?

    to reset counter, i think you can obtain it from epson's site directly. give epson a call, they should get you a link to download the utility.

  4. Automatic Reset Chip allows you to continue using the same cartridge and reset itself. Normal ink cartridges limit the number of prints by presetting the maximum number of prints on the "Smart Chip." But with our ink cartridges, you will continue using the same cartridge again and again.
    Transparent Design - All refillable cartridges are designed clearly so that our customers are able see how much ink they have put in. This will reduce leaking when refilling.
    Spongeless Design - Sharp and clean prints after refilling! No more streaks caused by air bubbles!
  5. Do you know of such a utility for the Epson Photo 1400? Link please

    That is the website Epson says to go to, to get the reset Activation Key and software emailed to you. All you need is your Serial # for the Epson Artisan 50.

    I need the Activation Key and Instructions for the Artisan 725. It gave me a warning, and I found and ordered a waste-ink tank, but have not tried to install it yet. Am using my Artisan 837 now, and have a wierd nozzle check printout for one of the colors. Need help with that too, just started a new thread about it.
