printer cartridge memory

printer cartridge memory

Epson uses a chip on each of their inkjet cartridges that tells the printer that the cartridge is empty, thus preventing refilling.  Does anyone have any ideas what kind of chip is on this cartridge and what format the info is in inside the chip.  I'm assuming it's an EEPROM of some kind but don't know what kind.  I would like to be able to reset the cartridge so I can refill it.  Thanks.

RE: printer cartridge memory

Not sure what type of epson you have but I had a 400 and never had a problem. I thing you are giving Epson more credit then they deserve.
just take the cartridge out refill it and replace it.

Suggestion: I have experienced the same problem with the Hewlett-Packard Printer with color and black and white cartridges.
