When refilling your Canon or Epson ink cartridge, depending on the model, you also need to replace or reset the chips. offers the following resetters for the below-mentioned cartridge models:

We have 3 Epson Resetters for non-wide format models (V5, V7 and V9). The models they reset are listed below:

(this is for T068120* / T069120* / T069220* / T069320* / T069420* / T069520* / T077120* / T077220* / T077320* / T077420* / T077520* / T077620* / T078120* / T078220* / T078320* / T078420* / T078520* / T078620* / T007 / T008 / T009 / T015 / T016 / T017 / T018 / T0100 / T026 / T027 / T028 / T029 / T036 / T037 / T038 / T039 / T040 / T041 / T057 / T058 / T066 / T067 / T0321 / T0322 / T0323 / T0324 / T0331 / T0332 / T0333 / T0334 / T0711* / T0712* / T0713* / T0714*)

(this is for T124* / T125* / T126* / T127*)

(this is for 16/16XL*, 18/18XL*, 26/26XL*, 200/200XL*, 273/273XL*, 277/277XL*)

* VERY IMPORTANT: The models marked with an asterisk use a new generation 9-Pin Epson chip (T068, T069, T077 and T078 cartridges). For these cartridges, the printer reads more than just the chip when determining the ink level status for the cartridge. The printer also reads ink level sensors INSIDE the cartridge, so the cartridge needs to be both properly resetted AND properly refilled in order for the printer to recognize it as full. Make sure you know how to refill these cartridges before you buy this resetter! This caution does not apply to the older generation chips that are not marked with an asterisk, which use 7-pin chips.

For Canon, there is no 250/251 resetter yet, we have the following models:

Is Lexmark getting out of the inkjet printer business? That may be very good news

The Telegraph in the UK just reported today that Lexmark may be getting out of the Inkjet Printer business. According to the Telegraph, Lexmark, a US printer manufacturer, is to stop making inkjet printers to focus on other parts of its business.

Why is this good news?  Well, Lexmark (who also makes the printers for Dell), makes arguable the worst quality printers and ink cartridges on the market.  According to a study that they themselves sponsored in order to "shed light" on failures of the remanufacturing industry, their own OEM (original brand) Lexmark Inkjet Cartridges failed out the box or prematurely at a significant rate.  This also translates into more quality issues for remanufactured cartridges, because a remanufactured Lexmark ink cartridge is only as good as the components it starts with.  Lexmark has also been strongly anti-refills, making their cartridges more and more complicated to refill, so an exit by Lexmark from the inkjet printer business would be great news for remanufacturers and consumers alike.  HP and other printer makers have a much better quality product, and are more refill friendly.
