Yeah, I am using chips like these because we have alot of work and its just insane to use the Primera cartriges. I just hoped that there were other way to ease the process...

You still need to replace the chip on these, its just easier for refilling them because they are see trhough. I am using the exact same ones.

Yes, its far, far better than the OEM cartrages! Currently the price difference is 10 times.

Hi, I'm new here,
Just want to share my experience with my Primera LX2000. I don't find any chip bypass or similar but I think I found a solution manipulating the software:
In the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Primera Technology\PTStatus2000 can see a file with the name "PTStatus2000.exe.config" that I opened this with the Adobe Dreamweaver and saw an XML content like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

I think this is the config that works with the firmware. Just I renamed this file and I made bridges in the print head of the inks. Now, I'm using refill with the original cartridge from Primera.
I hope that this can help.

Welcome @J. Renrock, that sure is one was to say hello, are you sure you couldn’t have made your post longer... :lol:

I wish others will have as much success with your method as you are having, I wonder could they copy and paste your config and use... :hu

Could you let us know what you renamed that file into and also what kind of bridges do you make in the print head of the inks. If you can be so kind to share pictures to help us understand.
