This procedure should be used with care!
If you have a continuous ink system (CIS) and want to avoid the hassle of resetting the ink usage counter chips on your cartridges then these codes can change your printer settings
Warning – getting this wrong could well mess up your printer, so do it at your own risk. This info is from Lyson and they won’t take responsibility for damage either!

The printer will power up and show ‘Ready’ with (0XXXXXXXX) at the ink cartridge status bars.
This setting is written to the printer eprom and won’t change when the power is switched on and off.
Remember that with the big 220ml carts you would only need to use a chip resetter fairly infrequently – this would be my own choice
