How to Reset Epson Waste Ink Counters with WIC Reset Utility

How to Reset Epson Waste Ink Counters with WIC Reset Utility

If you have an Epson printer that shows an error message like "The printer's ink pads are at the end of their service life" or "A printer's ink pad is at the end of its service life. Please contact Epson Support", you may need to reset the waste ink counter. This is a feature that prevents the printer from overflowing the ink pads and causing damage or ink leakage. The waste ink counter keeps track of how much ink is used for cleaning and maintenance, and when it reaches a certain limit, it stops the printer from working.

Wic Reset Utility Version V2220000jun 6 2012


One way to reset the waste ink counter is to use a software tool called WIC Reset Utility. This is a program that can communicate with your Epson printer and perform various functions, such as checking the current ink level, reading and writing serial number, cleaning printhead, and resetting waste ink counter. You can download the latest version of WIC Reset Utility from here. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux operating systems.

To use WIC Reset Utility, you need to buy a reset key, which is a code that allows you to perform one reset operation. You can buy reset keys from here. The price is around $10 for a single key, but you can get discounts if you buy in bulk. You can pay by Visa, Master Card, Webmoney, PayPal, or other methods.

Once you have downloaded and installed WIC Reset Utility and bought a reset key, you can follow these steps to reset your waste ink counter:

  • Connect your Epson printer to your computer with a USB cable.

  • Run WIC Reset Utility and select your printer model from the drop-down menu.

  • Click on "Read waste counters" button to check the current value of the waste ink counter. If it is more than 100%, you need to reset it.

  • Click on "Reset waste counters" button and enter your reset key when prompted.

  • Wait for the program to reset the waste ink counter and show a confirmation message.

  • Turn off your printer and turn it on again.

  • Enjoy your printer without the error message.

WIC Reset Utility is a useful tool that can help you extend the life of your Epson printer and save money on ink pads replacement. However, you should also be aware of some limitations and risks of using it. For example:

  • WIC Reset Utility only works with Epson printers that have a built-in waste ink counter. It does not work with other brands or models.

  • WIC Reset Utility does not physically clean or replace the ink pads. It only resets the counter that monitors them. Therefore, you should periodically check the condition of the ink pads and replace them if necessary, or use an external waste ink tank to collect the excess ink.

  • WIC Reset Utility may not be compatible with some firmware versions or updates of your printer. If you update your printer firmware, you may lose the ability to use WIC Reset Utility or other similar tools.

  • WIC Reset Utility may void your printer warranty or violate some terms and conditions of Epson. Use it at your own risk and responsibility.

If you have any questions or problems with using WIC Reset Utility, you can contact their support team at e0e6b7cb5c
