I have heard of a little gizmo that will allow you to change the chip setting's on your ink cartridge!

Can anyone tell me where I can purchase one?

Thanks awfully

ive got a c42+ and im fed up of using one cartridge a month at 17.00 a time.

is it as easy as it says to reset the cartridge and put in the ink. looking at my original epson cartridges there seems to be a little hole on top for refilling, i suppose ill need a sticker or bung for resealing the top. do they need flushing every time i refill.

I've used the SSC utility since I bought my Epson C42UX six months ago. In effect it freezes the chips on the cartridges and allows you to use the cartridge until the prints shows signs of the cartridge being empty, rather than forcing you to discard cartridges which still contain some ink.

You can get chipped compatible cartridges now so together with the SSC utility not worth bothering messing around with the chips.
