Below issome info I prepared re our experiences with refilling of the Epson T29 cartridges used in your printer.

You would need the resetter - refilling with ink alone is no use, the cartridge simply won't get accepted back into the printer.

Since I did the email below - quite a few people have purchased the T29 resetter and had success refilling them - Read below and you will see that there are reasons why it may not always be plain sailing with the latest cartridges from Epson. Also another little snippet - everyone is waiting for the usual type of empty refillable cartridges for the T29. The only offerings I have seen so far (from a Chinese source) do not have auto reset chips - this will be a real pain - what they are offering is the cartridge with a replaceable chip, saying that a new chip has to be fitted for each refill. In practice we don't know how these would work out e.g. if a user was to keep the cartridge topped up with ink - would it lengthen the life of a chip? This must be because of technical issues that they cannot make a chip which Auto resets. Also if the chip on the refillable did not reset thenit would make it easier for the customer to fit another chip. The latest resetters for Epson all say that people should reset before the cartridge indicates an "X". Basically, if it reaches X it will never reset and get accepted back into the printer.

Here are links for the resetters we stock:-


Anotherproblem we may have going forward with these is that the manufacturer (Epson) can change Firmware in newer printers (1) to stop compatible cartridges working and (2) to stop recycling / refilling of their own cartridges. We now know that this has already happened with these printers. The compatibles are now on Version 3 of the chips.

Also - very important never accept Firmware updates. When you install a printer you must ensure that you do not select the option to automatically accept these software "updates"


One question I have for people is - did you refill the cartridge first? I think that the old idea of resetting an "empty" or even a nearly empty cartridge and expecting to continue printing is not going to work.

Acustomer had looked on you tube and seen a video showing where to drill a hole on Epson originals. I spoke to him on the phone and he brought his cartridges in. I am glad to say that theyall reset OK (i.e. we got the Green indication)- He had a set of 4 - when he took them home 3 got accepted OK but the Magenta didn't. He also bought a set of compats from us along with the resetter and so was delighted to get his printer up and running for much less money than he had been paying on Epson cartridges!

Below you will see images about refilling, where to make a hole.
Above picture shows the typically complicated internal construction inside an Epson cartridge.
It states on the resetter that you should reset a cartridge before it reaches 15% left inside.
If you read below, you will see the reason for this.
Epson have added a see through "window" on the underside of their cartridges, we reckon that ink must show here for a cartridge to get accepted back into the printer.
We have heard of a customer who reset a different model of Epson cartridge (but one with this window) it did not get accepted after the reset. He took it out - refilled it and then it got accepted.
So I suppose what I am saying is - If you intend to reset a cartridge - before you do so - look at this window and make sure that ink shows there
We recommend people who want to refill empties to refill first and then use the resetter.
I have just taken another look at some of our newer our compatible cartridges. (Shown below) The latest ones of this generation of Epsons - with this window - our compatibles previously had the "Window" just like the Epson Originals do, but now the latest compatibles we have in stock don't have the window. To me this is great news, as they clearly work without it and it is just one thing less to go wrong.
We always say to customers to refill compatibles as they are made more simply. e.g. they don't have the complicated internal chamber structure that Epson employ, also they don't have the Double Skinning that Epson often use.

The image above shows two cartridges with the window and two of the newest ones with no window.
