Customer Question
Is there any way...

Is there any way to reset an ink cartridge for the wf-2650 Epson printer?

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer or device are you printing from?

HP and Sony Viao mainly

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your WF-2650?

Since new. have even bought resettable cartridges for it that don't work

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I was wondering if I could erase the Epson firmware and not update them printer. I understand this may be not allowing the cartridge to be recognized as being full. I can reset the printer to the original Factory Settings. I just want to refill the 220/220XL cartridges my aelf and have the 2650 recognize them... thanks

You don't need to erase a firmware to have the printer recognize your ink cartridges

The chip on the Epson 220 ink cartridge for my WF-2650 only allows X number of pages to print. The cartridge may still have 25% ink left. I am looking for a work around to allow reuse of the cartridges. I read updating the firmware, which I have now turned off, affects this. I was wandering how to reset the settings to what they were when I purchased th
