Glad you sorted it as my list of to-do's is getting like a logarithmic curve right now...

As to health, all good now... still coughing (which makes people jump and run) but that's all.

Happy to hear you are on the mend. Hope the wife and children are all healthy as well. :hugs

Type or copy and paste the full web address.

You can also embed the link in text, called hypertext, by highlighting text (word or words) then clicking on the diagonally oriented two linked chains button above where we type in our posts. You can see this button located 2 buttons to the left of the smile emoticon button.

Unfortunately, the current version of the forum software makes embedded links virtually invisible unless you run your cursor over the hypertext text.

A belated thanks, Stratman. Didn't work for me first try but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

Paul

I bought a very clean, lightly used, Epson 1430 driver, equiped with a set of 6 carts. The ink and carts are from an online dealer named CISInks. The carts are ver. 6.0 I was happy to see. What I like about that version is that they were not ARC chips, or if they were, the carts could be reset with an external re-setter I got from InkJet Mall. The monitor showed the Light Magenta to be nearly exhausted and I could reset that cart without having to wait for the alert from the computer. After I reset that cart, I thought I might as well top off the other five carts. The first two were yellow and black and the reset went smoothly, the LED going from red to green without a hitch. But it was very difficult for Light Cyan, Magenta, and Cyan to accept the resetter. Finally, after playing around with the position of the resetter to be just right, these three were accepted. I was ready to give up more than once. What's odd is that at first the nozzle check showed all six patterns to be perfect, right after filling by eye-ball, it was just the ink level monitor didn't register.

Anyone have some thoughts on how resetting all six might go more smoothly? I have a hunch a second resetting should go more easily, perhaps the chips needed to be acclimated. Or maybe I should break down and get a another brand of refillable carts.

I got the printer for $150, and I thought the printer was well worth it. The only other hitch is the output tray... it's missing the outmost extension, and I can't find that part on the web.

Suggestions welcome, and thanks all.
I think I have a spares/repair 1500W (same model as the 1430, just the EU designation) so as/when I get a chance I'll take a look for that and let you know if it still has that bit of the tray.

If you have problems resetting cartridges you may be victim of a particular trick Epson has built into the firmware/driver , similar to what I observed as well. Since you have another 1500W available which takes the same cartridges you may try to play the same game I did - cycling the cartridges through this printer .
