Why Epson EP-979 Ink Cartridge Error ?
– The ink chips was installed on all Epson EP-979 printer’s ink cartridges . These chips interact with the printer software installed on the computer, allowing users to track the printer’s ink status. Report the amount of ink remaining to the user through the “Epson Status Monitor” or on the LCD screen of the printer (if it has).
– When the “Epson Status Monitor” or on the printer’s LCD screen announces: ‘Black, Yellow, Magenta, Cyan ink cartridge is low’, ‘Black, Yellow, Magenta, Cyan ink cartridge near end’, ‘Black, Yellow, Magenta, Cyan ink cartridge is empty’ then Epson EP-979 printer has been near end or runs out of ink (one or several colors). Now, If you want to the printer continue printing, there are two options: replace continuous ink supply system – CISS to cost savings or replace the genuine cartridge with high price.
– Currently, the Epson EP-979 printer does not have what are continuous ink supply system compatible with it, so technicians have to manually create continuous ink supply system. However, when it was installed on the printer, some error message appears: “Ink Level Error” or “Ink Out Error” and the printer can not print. This is because the chip on the continuous ink supply system (CISS) is incompatible with your printer Epson EP-979, saying exactly it is not compatible with the printer’s current firmware.

This causes your Epson EP-979 printer will show 100% ink level all time you use it, it will not need to ink cartridges chips or CISS chips will be required anymore.
– Modify printers Firmware -> printer will not require Ink Cartridges (IC Chips on cartridges) anymore. You will not need to reset ink chips or replace them if they are broken, no need to hard reset or factory reset Epson EP-979.
