How to reset the waste ink absorber in Epson XP 103 for free

The printers and MFP of Epson XP series has long been sold on the Russian market, sooner or later they require service, in another word it will be necessary to reset the waste ink absorber. In orer to do it, it is necessary to clean or replace the sponge in which the waste ink is merged. Or as we did, we brought through the plume into the jar.

The counter reset is more difficult, because this models are new and only a few programs support the XP model series. 

PrintHelp requires a key that resets only one printer, and costs about 400 rubles. For service engineers it is not profitable.

Because of it we do in a different way. We have disassembled the Epson XP 103, for ore information see the article "Overview of the Epson XP 103" and soldering the 25q32 chip (Figure 1).

We have upgraded it through the dump (Figure 2) by using the Triton and the panel SOIC/ SOP 8 200mil and soldered it on its place (Figure 3) 

Here is the dump

Now we have a printer which thinks that he hasn't passed through the initialization. After initialization he not only have the zeroes in the waste ink absorber, but also in the counter of pages. 

As a result, we spent only 30 minutes of time, of which 10 minutes for upgrade the 25Q32 chip from Epson XP103. You can also use this method in the other models of Epson XP series. Of course, each of them has his own dump.
