    Hello, I tried a firmware downgrade instead of disabled ink firmware (that bricked my previous printer), the process went through without errors, printer restarted but no firmware downgrade was made. Printer still has factory firmware, which is DG03K7 - 03/07/2020. Can someone help me here? I've already spent $40 trying to make my printer chipless with no luck. FYI, my orders were #24072262 and #24789104. Thank you!

    On the last screenshot printer is available via Wi-Fi only which means that WIC does not see USB connection either, futhermore the ports tab in the printer's properties window will show the port even if the printer itself is offline. Please, show how printer's port is recognized in the windows device manager or in the usb view (microsoft tool for usb enumeration available online).

    Hi, I recently bought the Chipless firmware key for the WF-6090 printer. Sucessfully installed and it was all good until the printer throwed the full maintenence box's error. I hard resetted the box but the message was never gone. I had to install the original firmware to get ride of the message but when installing back the chipless solution the counter is always going down for the box and there is no way to get it full even if I switch the box with a totally new one. I already installed twice the firmware. I bought two keys for this and still not able to use the printer properly. It's having this persistent error with the box. It's buggy... @John_Admin are you able to fix it? I really need my printer working with the chipless solution, I bought it because it was a supported model for chipless firmware. I already bought like 5 keys for the WF-5190 and no issues at all with that printer, I only have a huge thank you for your solutions.

    Instructions is available in the WIC when printer is connected in the normal mode. There are only one way to do this: Power cord must be connected and printer is powered off. Press and hold "resume/cancel" button (triangle in the circle). Press ON button while holding "resume/cancel" button (now you are holding both). While holding the ON button press "resume/cancel" button 5 times. Each time when you are pressing "resume/cancel" the error and power LEDs will light alternately. Release ON button. "Resume/cancel" button must be pressed EXACTLY 5 times. Printer may be started in different mode that is indistinguishable from the service mode when another combination is used, but service functions will not work! If at the end error LED is still ON (not blinking) and POWER LED is off then service mode was blocked. The only known solution in this case is to replace eeprom chip. If this does not work then most likely service mode has been blocked for the device.

    Mine was still under warranty and i just received a new one today. I'm supposed to send the old one back so I'm assuming I'll be billed full retail priced when they see it's hacked firmware. 2manuals is offering less than zero support other than "make sure you are using the right firmware" despite the fact that this has nothing to do with my issue. Their radio silence is extremely distressing seeing as between two $50 keys I've managed exactly one single canvas print, and now I need to purchase a third key to try again. A fool and his money soon parted and all that. Maybe they are too busy updating their website to remove the outdated non functional firmware that keeps confusing everyone so much that their default response to every problem is "make sure you're using NWOK7K firmware".

    According to the screenshot printer is connected via Wi-Fi only, if you had USB cable connected at this time then either USB module is disabled or not working properly. Silly question, but you are using USB port at the back of the printer and not in the front, right?

    Good day. You need to use free recovery firmware for this (first enable firmwares for recovery mode in the WICReset options from the mian menu) then you will see new list for your printer in the main interface, select recovery firmware for you model and follow instructions.

    @shane I'm not from the printer reset's team but: There is no way to measure the tank ink level, it uses a chip to get an approximated ink level value and not using chips is the purpose of the chipless firmware. Normally the chip values changes with usage and once it's "filled" it gets the chip and the printer useless until you change the box with a new chip. You just need to monitor the ink level on the boxes every 7000 prints, not a big deal.

    Had the same problem.. Using chipless and drained one of the inks.. So I had to do cleaning couple of times that's why the maintenance box overflowed and inks leaked.. To solve the issue I followed the steps on disconnecting the ink sensor cables and viola.. Am back to printing.. Thank you Emilio

    Hi all, the CT14I9 was successfully uploaded and activated on our Epson WF-C5290 printer. When you go to 'Maintenance -> Print Quality Adjustment' and confirm with 'OK -> Print' the printer begins to check and then gives the 'Maintenance Error (Ink Supply Unit is not installed correctly)'. All fields for inkcolors are grey. There is also a difference to the chipless firmware for the WF-5210: The WasteInkTank value is always full, on the WF-5210 it shows the correct value. Michael

    Just as many other Epson printer owners experienced over the last three weeks in March 2020 (as our automatic firmware settings kicked in at different times), my Epson WorkForce 3640 (WF-3640) became obsolete ("bricked") after Epson's latest firmware update. For me, the firmware version that did the damage was called CB0912. Apparently, it effectively prevents the printer from working if it does not have genuine Epson ink cartridges installed. Of course, I did not have expensive Epson cartridges installed, and my printer became useless. I tried using the printer's "Clean Printhead" utility about 30 times (seriously), to no avail. I also used a cleaning solution of window cleaner and rubbing alcohol (as directed in a few YouTube videos) to manually clean the printhead. Still nothing. So, effectively, despite a federal law that went into effect within the last few years prohibiting printer manufacturers from forcing users from needing proprietary ink cartridges in their printers, they appear to be doing so. Regardless, their apparent malfeasance has caused an immediate problem for many (if not for millions) of us. I scoured the internet and watched way too many YouTube videos to solve this problem, but I finally did. I am using a PC, running Windows 10. This is what worked for me: Before I did any of this, I went into my Epson Software Updater program (Windows Menu, Epson folder, Epson Software), and TURNED OFF automatic updating for software updates. (Choose the printer series, automatic updates, and change the frequency to "NEVER." Now, the only way that the firmware on my printer will ever get updated is if I do it manually - WHICH I WILL NEVER DO EVER AGAIN. Repeat this for every computer/device in your house that also has Epson Software Updater on it. Otherwise, one of those computers might let the software sneak in and brick your printer again! Next, disable EPSON Status Monitor. (The little icon that appears in the lower right of your screen on the task bar that lets you manage your print jobs). Go into Windows Setup, Devices, Printers & Scanners, Epson 3640 Series, Manage, Printer Preferences, Maintenance (tab), Extended Settings, and uncheck the Enable EPSON Status Monitor 3 box. (You will see in the video - referenced below, - that the Status Monitor interferes with the process of rolling back the firmware of the printer.) After you are done with all of the steps below, you can go back and re-check the box, and the little Status Monitor icon will again appear in the task bar at the bottom of the screen. First step: I went to 2manuals.com and downloaded the free WIC Reset Utility (at the time of this post, it's v.5.57) at https://www.wic.support/download (choose the version for your system e.g. Apple or Windows). Second, I installed the WIC Reset Utility on my computer. Installation was easy. Third, I watched a YouTube video called: "Epson WF4630 Firmware Downgrade Always Full." The guy in the video is kind of rough, but he walks you through the software fairly well. In his video, he was attempting to permanently reset the ink levels for his cartridges. That's not what I needed to do to fix my problem, but the guy in the video does a nice job walking you through the WIC software. In the steps below, I used the WIC Reset Utility software to downgrade the firmware version for my WF-3640 to an older version - a version that doesn't tell the printer to brick itself if non-genuine Epson cartridges are installed. For reference, the downgraded firmware that the WIC software eventually installed on my printer was a version from March 3, 2016 (version CB17J4) - I assume that was the original firmware that was installed on this printer when it was manufactured and sold new 4 years ago. The painful part of this whole process is that I had to purchase a "key" for the WIC software to use in order to download that firmware. I could not figure out any other way to get a key. Unfortunately, they can only be used once. Otherwise I would gladly share my code with everyone. Read below... Fourth, (and this part sucked) as noted above, I painfully paid the $19.99 for a firmware change key for the WIC reset utility, and paid for that through PayPal. Although physically cringing when I did it, it was an easy process. I got a 16-digit code (key) that can only be used once. (NOTE: there are other websites that purport to sell a "WIC reset key generator," and they claim that they will give you your first key for free, but each one of these sites requires you to enter all of your credit card information first - apparently in case you ever want to buy more key generating software from them?? I don't know). Anyway, I chose not to do that (purchase a key generator), even though it might be legit, and instead used PayPal for the one-time purchase through www.wic.support. You can dig around on the internet, and there are more than one site that sells them. I simply chose that one. Please understand that I am in NO WAY affiliated with www.wic.support. This was the first time I had ever heard of them, and I hope to never pay them another penny again. However, I must say, I was so frustrated that I was just about ready to order a new printer for about $180 on Amazon - so, to me, twenty bucks seemed worth a shot, even if it didn't work. Fifth, I turned on my printer. Then launched the WIC software on my PC. In the software, there is a button to click to detect what printers are connected to your computer. For me, it showed my WF-3640 as two separate printers (because it found both the wireless driver and the USB driver that I have installed for the printer). Anyway, you will see in the video, as well as in the instructions in the WIC software, that you need to have the printer connected via USB cable to your computer. I have no idea why. That being said, I connected my printer to my computer with a USB cable, and chose the USB-connected printer from my two choices. Once you choose the printer, you click on the button that says "Change Firmware Version." All this step does is display the correct instructions on how to change the firmware on your particular model of printer. That's all. 6th - Once you click that button (Change Firmware Version), you will see a bunch of RED type, that gives you a lot of good information about how the process will work. I suggest you read it all. Following the advice of the guy in the video that I referenced above, I clicked on the little button on the bottom right that says "Backup Printer EEPROM" first. Apparently, that saves all of the firmware data that is on your printer to a file on your computer, just in case something goes wrong and you have to recover that information for some reason. Just a safety measure. Takes about 30 seconds. Anyway, once you are done doing that, follow the instructions that are now on the screen for putting your printer into "Program Update Mode." For my WF-3640, it showed a nice little picture of my printer and which buttons to push. In my case, for the WF-3640, you turn off your printer, then using two fingers on each hand, you push four buttons at the same time: the power button, the home button, the number 1 button, and the orange Stop button - all at the same time. Wait a few seconds, and now, when the printer turns on, you get the "Program Update Mode" screen on the printer. Small white letters telling you that it's in the "Program Update Mode." 7th - Now that the printer is in the Program Update Mode, you click on the "Update List of Devices" button again on the WIC software. This will cause your printer's name to disappear from the detected printers list, and instead, all that shows is "Epson MFP-IPL (Service Mode)." Click on the little blue "+" symbol next to "Firmware Update," and a drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down to your printer model. Click on it, and click on the "Update" button on the right. You will then be prompted to enter your one-time 16-digit firmware change key (the one that cost $19.99). Once you type in the key, you will see that the program starts to download the software from the internet, and begins installing it onto your printer. DO NOT INTERRUPT THIS PROCESS. DON'T DO ANYTHING for about 10-15 minutes while this process happens, until the display on your printer says it's FINISHED, and shows all of the ROM information that it has just updated on your printer. Amongst all the numbers, you will see the new (rolled back) firmware version listed. In my case it was CB17J4. Once you have waited about 10-15 minutes for that to finish, you exit by pushing the "0" key on the front panel of the printer, and the printer shuts off. 8th - Finally, turn your printer back on. It will boot up, and it might take a few more seconds to do so the first time. For me, at this point, with fingers crossed, I tried to print something. But I got nothing - barely any ink on the paper. I was so frustrated and PISSED! But, then, I put my printer through about 3 or 4 more "Clean Printhead" cycles, and slowly it started to print a little bit more/better between each cycle. You can do a Google image search for "color printer test sheet" and pick out one with lots of colors. After about 2 or 3 times printing that image, my printer was back to normal. Printing perfectly. Ink flowing properly again. In my opinion, here's what I think was going on. When the March 2020 "brick" firmware unknowingly kicked in, it appears that it told the printer not to suck any ink out of non-Epson cartridges anymore. The printer then used up the remaining ink that was left in the tubes leading from the cartridges to the printhead, which probably took about 3 or 4 print jobs before the last of the ink left in the tubes was used up, and I started noticing declining print quality until it completely stopped printing altogether. I did not realize what was happening (could not have fathomed that Epson would do this), and assumed my printhead had become clogged or dirty. All of my initial attempts to "clean" the printhead just used up more and more of that little bit of ink left in the tubes, until the printer was not printing at all - despite the non-Epson cartridges having plenty of ink left in them. When I finally dialed back the firmware to the older version using the above process, this allowed the ink to flow again. However, it took a while to prime the ink back to the printhead again. When you run a "clean printhead" cycle, the printer actually sucks a little ink from the cartridges down through small tubes to the printhead. The "brick" firmware appears to tell the printer to shut off the flow of ink from non-Epson cartridges to the printhead. It's kind of like priming a hand pump to get water from a well. You have to pump the handle for a while before water starts to come out. Anyway, that's what worked for me. I TRULY HOPE this helps anyone who has the same problem. The WIC software and key system appears to be made for many different models of Canon and Epson printers - not just the WF-3640. Good luck!

    You are using wrong updater, where did you download it? You need to use this one: https://chiplesssolutions.com/download/chipless/XP2100_FWH284TL_MZ01JA_MZ99Z9.zip also read this: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80765-how-to-update-and-activate-chipless-firmware-complete-guide/

    Chipless firmware is not available for XP-8xxx XP-610x XP-510x WF-4740 WF-28xx, cartridge numbers do not matter in this case, only firmware serie. As for WF-2865 WF-4725DWF and WF-4730DTWF, I suspect that their internal model and firmware ID is identical to those, that we have, if possible, check real model name as shown in the WICReset and post it there.

    1. Just download latest official firmware from the Epson website and install it the same way. 2. You can reinstall chipless firmware and then you will need to either activate it again using same key as before or to use recovery key that you saved during previous activation.

    Good day. Did you reupload chipless firmware back to the printer again after update from epson? What is the current version? You can check it in the printer settings or via WIC using `report` button.

    Good day, each time when you connect usb printer to the PC virtual printing USB port name (USB001,USB002,etc) is assigned, once you install the driver this assignment is remembered and as result the more installed printers you have in the system the higher is port number for the next one. Unfortunately, license.exe can only work with first 32 ports, so in order to use it with the new device, you need to delete one of the existed printers with low port number, freeing it, and then replug the new one (of course it will only work if new device is not installed itself, otherwise it will have fixed port number and nothing will change). Bottom line, remove as much unused printers from the system as possible.

    Ok, this was not a firmware issue, this was a problem with these sensors. Even if it seems to be fine when disconnected them started working again. Que Kamikazes!!! no pueden cobrarte eso! Desenchufa los sensores y al carajo. Tenes que abrir la tapa izquierda de la impresora (mirando desde el frente) y desenchufar los cuatro sensores. Son los que tienen cable rojo-blanco-negro, tenes 4 terminales, uno de plastico rojo, otro de plastico amarillo, otro negro y otro blanco. Te los marqué en amarillo en la foto que subo. Una vez desenchufados prendes la máquina y sale andando lo más bien, chipless y a prueba de agua ajjaja

    Do not install epson update center, only driver and also disable updates in the driver and on the printer itself (in the menu), anyway, even if you accidentally update firmware you can reactivate chipless mode by installing chipless firmware again and using recovery code (provided that you saved it during activation).

    Good day. Please, check private messages. Also Please, install latest official version of the firmware, then replace/reset maintenance box and make sure that it is recognized by the printer, after this install chipless firmware (firmware with disabled ink cartridges) back. You have to use new Firmware Key.

    I see, unfortunately, there are no faster way to do this at the moment, if this is a serious obstacle you may consider continious ink supply system.

    This issue almost always means that chipless firmware has not been properly loaded to the printer. Try to update firmware again and check all messages that you get during update process in the application then restart the printer and check firmware vesion in the WIC. Also, in very rare cases problem can be in the usb module/cord/port.
