Resetting the Ink Waste Counter

Resetting the Ink  waste Counter

I normally go to to reset the waste ink counter. Select the WIC tab. Don’t go out and get the key just yet.

You should scroll down this page to ensure that your printer’s model number is displayed. Return to the top of the page and download the free program once you’re certain it’s compatible. Make sure to start with your favourite language.

This software must be executed as an administrator. You must trust the program and click yes when prompted to install Inkchip WIC. I use this program because I know it is free of viruses. It will place a slew of icons on your desktop after installation.

Choose the language of your choice. Your printer should be mentioned. If it does not, it is unlikely to be compatible.

The first step is to check the ink counter level. When I did it, the one I got only said 16% filled, but I reset it anyhow to illustrate.

You may purchase the key now that we’ve read the ink level and determined it’s compatible. Return to the other window and choose Reset waste ink counts. Enter the key that you purchased. You should receive a notice indicating that the counter has been reset and requesting that you restart the printer.

Restoring the Waste Ink Tank

Restoring the Waste Ink Tank

When you restart the printer, the count should return to zero. Your printer, however, is still pouring actual ink into the waste ink tank. To begin resolving this issue, flip the printer to the rear. Remove the screw that is keeping the corner panel in place with a number two Phillips screwdriver.

You may now replace the cover. However, don’t put it all the way on or the ink will not be able to pass through the tube. Attach the jar to the printer’s side with the velcro square. This will keep it from getting in your way or falling over.

Cut a hole in the cap large enough to allow the tube to pass through. Replace the cap on the jar and thread the line through it. When you run the self-clean feature, the ink will now flow into the external fuel tank, and when it fills up, you can just dump it out and begin again.
