    I read some where that Epson has been changing chip codes in an effort
    to defeat use of CIS &/or refillable cartridges in the 1400. Does
    anyone have any current information to share regarding this
    information (or rumor)??

    Additionally, is there some one on the forum who is actually using a
    CIS or refillable cartridge with auto reset chips? If so, does your
    auto reset chip actually work as it should?

    Replies will be very much appreciated.

    Yes, I use the refillable cartridges and the chip resetter on my RX500 and they
    both work fine.

    No news about the new style cartridges. As I mentioned in earlier posts, this
    thing seems totally illegal, and we as consumers should not put up with it.

    I have heard the rumour but I suspect that is all it is....a rumour.
    If it were true it would be at best marginally legal and probably totally so in
    most countries.

    I have the Aussie version called the 1410.
    Just ordered 3 CISS from 3 different Chinese manufacturers.
    They arrive in 5-10 working days.

    Let you know how they go.
    US$15.00 each with no ink- but US$20.00 each to ship to Australia.

    He is also the resident "kook" here who likes to contradict & arouse
    the "sane" users of this forum. It seems like every community always
    has one.

  6. Please do report on your results, and which
    product/distributor/manufacturer works best. This is exactly the type
    of information that can benefit many of the readers of this group.

    In fact, If you are so inclined, you might be able to write an article
    for paid publication either on line or in a magazine. The interest in
    CIS's are increasing as the prices drop on them and they become better

    I use nothing but bulk ink Ciss with reset cartridges.. Epson ink cartridges comes with very little ink in them, by the
    time I do a few head cleaning the ink is gone... I understand there is a firmware downgrade available from
    Wicreset, if I'm not mistaken it's around $20 some..My printer is second handed, the previous owner may
    have upgraded the firmware thinking it was a good thing.
