Please try this new file for you.
 
https://inkchip.net/download/INKCHIP.net_Firmware_99_WF5290_v1.rar
 
 
1) Upload firmware which I sent
 
2) Switch on in normal mode(!!!!) just turn on button . - dont put printer in Program Update mode. (no need to press few buttons while turn on the printer)
 
The uploading process will stuck at 70-80% - it is ok!
 
Open task manager and stop updater process.
 
Printer will blink for about 5-15 minutes - then will power OFF.
 
Now power on the printer - chipless firmware is installed in your printer!

I uploaded the file in update mode, no issue, however, when I tried to run the activation code, the reading 1 error still appeared. I also tried to update just by uploading it and still the same error shows. Kindly please assist as I'm unable to use my printer since  my intial ink has run out. the printer doesnt recognize the the cartridge tank
