You have to put printer in Service Mode before using WIC.

If You have already tried some other Service Tool ST V4720 or other versions - You could damage logic cirguit and printer will not enter Service Mode anymore.


In this case you have to reprogram printers firmware and EEPROM by hardware chip programmer.

I tried using WIC, then I entered service mode, but after the process, the printer is still not working, I restarted the process from the start, turn off the printer and entered service mode again, But unfortunately, I pressed the keys incorrectly, then after that, my printer won't turn on. Could it be that the logic circuit is damaged? If yes, what am I suppose to do?


Thank you
