Hi, Has anyone had any problems with chipping cartridges..Taking the chip off the old cart and putting it on a new one. I'm asking because my cartridges are so dear and i can get a set really cheap but they havent got the chip on them..Thanks

Are you sure that the cartridges you can get "cheap" will fit properly?

It is possible, if you are careful, to remove the chip from an original cartridge and fit it to another cartridge if the necessary fitting posts are present. The chip must line up exactly on the replacement cartridge.

Don't touch the chip as the static in your body can zap it.

You will need a chip resetter to fool the printer into thinking that the replacement cartridge is full.

I use JR Ink Refill kits for my Epson and know they are good. They even sell a chip resetter for the cartridges. Have a look, you may like them click here+
