  1. Caution! This topic will explain how to upload firmware to the printer by pulling out power cable during critical operation and corrupting data on the motherboard. This method has been used dozens of times but, while nobody reported any irreparable damages, results are not conclusive. Execution: 1. Only use this method when everything else is failed. 2. Make sure that there are no problems with USB cable or USB port. Even if the cable is fine for printing there are still can be issues when uploading firmware data, so if you get any errors consider to replace the cable and switch USB port first. 3. Start uploading firmware normally. It is preferable to use service mode (instruction for entering service mode can be found in respective chipless manual) and official offline firmware that you can download from Epson website for this, but if this not possible you can start updating process in normal mode and use Epson Update Center. 4. Remove power cable when firmware is being rewritten. Firmware update executes in four steps: uploading data, verifying data, erasing chip and writing new data to the chip, you need to remove cable during the last two steps somewhere in the middle of the whole proccess. Usually apropriate message is shown during each step if printer has LCD or LED indication is changed otherwise, but it varies from model to model and some models does not indicate changes in any way until the very end. 5. Start the printer normally using power button, in should start in the recovery mode and will be recognized as new MFP-IPL device on the system. If the printer has an LCD it will also show `Recovery Mode` message on the screen. 6. Upload chipless firmware according to the standard instructions in this mode. 7. Printer should accept chipless firmware now, but in the case when even this process will fail you may use official firmware to restore device functionality.
  2. 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.
  3. Good day. Chipless Solutions firmware must be used in normal mode, please, start printer normally with power button and try again after reading this topic:
  4. Good day. Please, use this firmware version in normal mode: www.chiplesssolutions.com/download/noinks_updater/WFC5710_NU_CU99Z9.zip and try again.
  5. Good day. First of all try to change USB cable and port, download WICReset and shutdown all epson processes via 'main menu >> support >> disable porcesses' and make sure that correct firmware version is used: https://chiplesssolutions.com/download/WFC5210_FWG242TL_ZZ99Z9.zip
  6. Good day. Your printer must be either in normal mode or recovery mode, your screenshot shows update summary and in this particular state it will not accept another firmware no matter what. Shutdown the printer, then start it normally via power button and try again.
  7. Please, describe your actions with as much details as possible, also, please, try to update firmware one more time but this time in normal mode (i.e. same mode that is used for printing) and then use updater again. Also try following steps: 1. Upload Epson original firmware to your printer (update firmware from epson site) 2. After that - upload chipless firmware from our site
  8. So, did you manage to succesfully update this time? It supposed to reboot when updater shows 70 ~ 80%, after this you need to use license.exe
  9. Good day. Please, describe what you did step by step including exact error message, also read this topic: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80665-how-to-recover-chipless-firmware-after-printer-updated-from-epson/
  10. By design XP-430 requires recognized ink cartridges (or more specifically that printer does not have any errors) during update in normal mode, what is the current printer status?
  11. Good day, please, try the version provided in the previous post.
  12. What is the model of the printer and what message exactly is shows and where?
