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.
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.
