Does anyone use Epson SSC Service Utility??

  1. Hey
    I've heard that most printers claim to be out of ink long before they actually are. I have a large collection of empty Epson CX6000 cartridges that have amassed quickly over the past year. I'm wondering if I can drain them more thoroughly and save some dough.

    Has anyone had any success with resetting the expiration date on the cartridges or modifying the drivers?

    I found the "SSC Service Utility" online but am nervous about loading a strange program onto my rig.

    Also, Office Max claims that they can't refill these cartridges. What's up with that?

    Although I don`t use Epson printers myself, the SSC Service Utility is as far as I`m aware a safe and very useful bit of software.

    Give it a try and see what you think.

    Thank you.
    Sadly, I checked out the link and noticed that my printer is not on the list of supported models.

    My printer must be an oddball model or something. It's been on the market for around a year I believe.

    Thanks again,

    That`s a real shame. Personally, I use a Canon printer and have never had any problems with either it nor it`s ink cartridges.

    Regards Howard :)
