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

Chipless firmware, once activated, do not expire and if you will acidentally update to official version in the future, you can restore it and reactivate with recovery code.

I clicked on the C5290 download and it takes me to a blank page for the zip file.

Update, I downloaded the file, it was successful, I bought a key, but after downloading and running the NoInk file, nothing happened when I entered the Key.

Another update, SUCCESSFUL!

I entered the key again and changed the Ohs to Zeros. Success!

Oops, I found the download link, ran the update successfully, bought a Key, when I downloaded and ran the NoInks link and entered the Key, nothing happened. What am I doing wrong?

The Key had Zeros that I thought were "O"s.

Keys should only contain numerals 1-9, no zeros.

Yes, it worked, I have a Mac and a PC, the Key was on the Mac, couldn't copy & paste, had to enter the Key manually.

Да, после прошивки показывает такую версию, так же пробовал обновить официальную прошивку и заново установить от Chipless, так же пробовал на другом компьютере с другой операционной системой и пробовал другой провод usb

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.
