A particular kind of chip resetter can usually be used with few particular Epson printers, with which it is compatible. However a universal resetter can be used for all the various kinds of Epson printers.
Using the chip resetters is quite simple and easy a process. The printer ink cartridge is lined up with the marks at the resetter base. The resetter pins are pressed firmly against the chip contacts on the cartridge for a few seconds. Blinking of red light indicates that the contact is good. When the green LED on the chip resetter turns on and starts blinking, it implies that the chip on the cartridge has been reset.
If the LED does not light up when the cartridge and chip resetter are pressed against each other, it means that there is no physical contact between the cartridge chip and the chip resetter. In such case try once again and pressed more firmly to ensure proper contact.
Another probable reason due to which LED may not turn on can be the incompatibility of the chip resetter for the cartridge it is being used. In such a case, chip resetter should be replaced by a compatible one or a universal resetter.
The LED light does not turn on if the cartridge chip is corrupt or contains corrupt data. In such a case, the chip should be replaced. Another cause can be the dead batteries of the chip resetter, which is not very likely to happen unless it has been several times.
If the chip resetter creates unfamiliar sounds, it means that its batteries are down. In order to resolve such a situation, the batteries should be reinstalled. These troubleshooting techniques can help ensure proper functioning of Epson chip resetters.
