    Incorrect manual

    Try to update the printer in the normal mode first: https://www.2manuals.com/product_info.php?products_id=1956 if this will not work try service mode as described here: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80823-how-to-put-printers-in-firmware-mode/
  2. Your printer is "XP-243 245 247 Series" regardless of what is written on the cover, may be different motherboard for example. You need to use this firmware: http://chiplesssolutions.com/download/chipless/XP245_FWF731TL_EF23I2_EF99Z9.zip and follow this instruction: https://www.2manuals.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=&products_id=1852 once firmware is succesfully uploaded activation process will be the same.
  3. Good day. Chipless firmware disables verification of the IC chips, you can use anything that can fit in the printhead.
  4. Try to update printer again using same firmware (WF-C5790_FWG238TL_CV99Z9) in the normal mode, check printer`s version after update and post it here.
  5. Head ID or lack of it could not affect the printer in such way, if you sure that printhead has been installed correctly then the problem is either with the compatilibty or with hardware.
  6. Unfortunately, Epson started to block specific old versions of the firmware on the new devices, firmware from the WIC could not be flushed on your printer. If printer is already erased previous firmware before checking and blocking the new one, you can restore functionality using free recovery firmware that you can enable via settings. Send me the key you are used in the PM, then you can try this method: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80765-how-to-update-and-activate-chipless-firmware-complete-guide/&tab=comments#comment-87421 but if it will not work then it will mean that we could not provide a solution right now.
  7. Good day. For the first printer - you need to update it in the normal working mode, not in the service mode and final version as shown in the printer`s settings after update must be - CS26I9.
  8. Additionaly, XP-430 must be updated in the normal working mode and it must be in the ready to print state during update process (i.e. no errors, no tasks and most importantly, ink cartridges must be recognized).
  9. All modifications in the chipless firmware is completely internal and do not depend on anything outside of the printer itself, in short, you can move the printer to anywhere you like and connect it to anything you like, as long as you do not change firmware it will stay chipless.
  10. Please, read this: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80765-how-to-update-and-activate-chipless-firmware-complete-guide/
  11. Good day. Currently program discovers printers by sending broadcast message to the local network interfaces. Printer must have IPv4 address and it must be connected to the local network. If everything else fails you can also add its IP address directly in the application settings.

    firmware issue

    Try this first: 1. In WIC select `support >> disable processes` and shutdown all epson processes from here. 2. Make sure that only this printer is installed in the system and connected. 3. Restart the printer and change USB cable and port. 4. Restart NoInks and check again.
  13. What errors exactly and where? What exactly is not working? Please, describe your problem with as much details as possible and inculde printer report from WICReset. Give us screenshots please.
  14. 1. In WIC select `support >> disable processes` and shutdown all epson processes from here. 2. Make sure that only this printer is installed in the system and connected. 3. Restart the printer and change USB cable and port. 4. Restart NoInks and check again.
  15. When you say it does not work what exactly is happening? Is there are any error?
  16. As I wrote in the previous post CL99Z9 is the fake ID in the program specifications, it used to make sure that update can be done even if the current version on the printer is higher than the real one - CL30J5. The firmware itself is CL30J5, there are no such version as CL99Z9 at all because this is just a trick to make updater work in every case. Also, updater may not detect that updating is finished and show an error even if update completed succesfully. Please, read this: https://forum.2manuals.com/index.php?/topic/80765-how-to-update-and-activate-chipless-firmware-complete-guide/ I believe it covers most questions.
  17. 1. Yes. 2. It should be updated now, please, check the current version. CL99Z9 is the fake ID in the program specifications, it used to make sure that update can be done even if the current version on the printer is higher than the real one - CL30J5. 3. Activated firmware will not check presence of the IC chips or read/write data to them. Also it will keep ink levels at 100% no matter what. That is the difference. For example one may use it with the CISS and avoid the need to periodicaly reset the cartridges when printer thinks that they are empty. Additionally, your 3rd party cartridges may be compatible with the base version of this firmware but that doen't mean that all of them are.
  18. 1. To update printer in normal mode you need to boot the printer normally and then to use same firmware updater - EPFWUP.EXE, i.e. everything is the same but you skip the part where you entering service mode . 2. CL21I2 is older outdated version of the chipless firmware and now unsupported, use this: www.chiplesssolutions.com/download/chipless/WF3720_FWF469TL_CL30J5_CL99Z9.zip version in the end must be CL30J5 3. If your goal is to use third party cartridges then you do not need to activate it, if you want the printer to work without cartridges then you need to install version above and use license.exe
  19. Good day. You are using service mode for firmware update, all chipless firmware must be loaded in normal mode.
  20. Not likely, it is rather old printer and this firmware is hard to find. What problem are you trying to solve with firmware update?
  21. Unfotrunately, you would not be able to use either, this is a rare case when epson made two different firmware series for one model. Your printer uses firmware with AA prefix while we only have versions with AO prefix and they are incompatible with each other.
