Ink Refill Problem on Epson Stylus Photo 830

I bought a black ink refill set brand "InkCas".
I refill ink to my cartridge and replace it in the printer but the printer status still shows "the ink is out".

In the ink refill manual, it tell "if your cartridge has chip, you have to reset it"
Anyone knows "how can I reset it?"

Thank you very much.

Regards,
Lek

Unfortunately, you have to buy a chip resetting tool, or buy refilled cartridges.
The chip in the cartridge decides when it is empty, and has to be reset before it can be reused.

wyliecoyoteuk - have I missed something - there doesn't appear to be any info on how to re-set an ink cartridge chip nor where to find the software to do it in your link:-
