What is Reset Printer and When to Do It?

For those of you who work using the printer every day, you must have often heard the word reset printer, reset manually or reset the printer using a software resetter.

As we all know that printer use has print usage limits, these usage limits are known by calculating the print results. This print out calculation is equipped with a protection counter which records and is controlled by the EEPROM chip on the printer motherboard, which intends to notify when the waste ink tank is full.

This is applied by the vendor with a reason to protect the excess ink outside capacity ink tanks. If this protection counter does not notify, the waste ink tank will continue to be filled when the printer performs the head cleaning process so that it floods the printer body which can cause the printer to become error and damaged.

Reset printer is needed if the printer that is currently in use suddenly stops working which is indicated by the LED lights alternately or called blinking. This occurs because the number of prints has reached the limit. If this condition occurs, that is indicated that the printer must be reset immediately.

And to reset it, you must know when to use the manual method and when to use the resetter software.

Manual reset is used when the indicator light on the printer lights indicates that the ink in the printer cartridge is running low and this can be fixed with just a few button presses.

And reset with a software resetter is used when the protection counter on the printer notifies that the waste ink tank is full, and to fix it, the waste tank must be cleaned or emptied first. then reset the protection counter using resetter software.
