INKCHIP - Chipless & Adjustment Program Solution

Recommended Posts

I have tried about a dozen times to update the firmware on my Epson WF-4730. The process begins each time, and then I get the message that the printer could not be updated. I am given prompts of things to try. I have tried all of them, and always get the same message. I have tried with just the network connection, just a USB connection, and with both, all with the same failure.

One thing I did notice is that when I power the printer on as instructed, touching both the power button and the upper right corner of the touch screen, I do not get the black screen with "Epson Printer Program Update Mode" that is shown in both the printed and video instructions. It just turns on normally, and once it gave me the message not to touch the screen. However, the Firmware registers my printer as "ready and standing by."

I would appreciate your help figuring out how to update the firmware on the printer. And if it is not possible, how can I get a refund?

Thank you!

Rebecca

Hi!

Please try this new file for you.

 
https://inkchip.net/download/INKCHIP.net_Firmware_99_WF4790_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!

Hi!
What mode did you install the firmware in? In normal mode (using one button) or in update mode (using a combination of buttons). The firmware from the website should be installed in normal mode.

If it stops at 70-80% how can you put in the activation code?

Hi!

Have you installed the firmware successfully? You should input the key only after the installation

My printer wf 3720 will not finish installing firmware and restart. I have downloaded and tried to install multiple times. It brings up the printer USB at first but switches to connection type network when downloading even though it's via USB. Then it says firmware not installed like the people above. What can I do?

Hi!
You should install the chipless firmware in NORMAL mode instead of UPDATE mode.

Please read the instruction from our website carefully:

https://inkchip.net/download/INKCHIP Instruction Method 14 (for 99 firmware).pdf

Also, please watch the video guide from our official YouTube channel:

Let me know the result!
Thank you!
