[EPSON WF-3725] Chipless firmware won't install/update

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I tried to install the chipless firmware with INKCHIP.net firmware installer as said in the instructions on your web page.

Printer: EPSON WF-3725

OS: Windows 10, 64bit

I am in normal mode doing everything as said. Error message below. I also tried unplugging the power cord after the progress froze @ 85% or so.

I also tried Wi-Fiand USB cord connection.

Tried uninstalling EPSON drivers, didn't work. Also tried to install new EPSON printer drivers if that would work but no.

Could you help me why this isn't installing correctly? Thank you!

Hi!
In the video guide it shows that you don't need it to load 100%. When the load gets stuck at 75-85%, that's okay! You will need to pull the cable out at that point and put it back in.
Then turn the printer on just using the power button.
Watch the video please:

So even though I get the error message and it never goes to 100% I can move on to activating?

 

My ink is 0% for Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. Does this still work when 0 % ink on those?

hi!


Your original firmware cannot be downgraded to earlier versions, and our chipless firmware is an earlier version.  

 

Basic concepts of the solution: 

 

- Standard InkChip firmware. Chipless firmware, which must be loaded into the printer using Firmware Mode. 

- 99 InkChip firmware. Chipless firmware, which must be loaded into Normal Mode. 

- Firmware Mode - special mode for updating printer firmware, which is activated when a certain buttons combination is pressed. 

- Normal Mode - normal mode of operation of the printer, simple switching on the printer with the power button.  

 

Algorithm for solving the problem: 

 

1. Check and memorize the firmware version of the printer. The firmware version displayed is the original non-update version. 

2. Flash printer 99 with InkChip firmware in Firmware Mode. 

3. When trying to activate the firmware with the Activation program and the activation code, the program will generate the Reading failed 1. 

4. Start flashing the printer 99 again with InkChip firmware in Firmware Mode. When the firmware status in Firmware Mode reaches 100%, and the printer display finishes counting the percentage of the firmware status, you need to pull out the power cable of the printer. 

5. Connect the power cable and turn on the printer. Recovery Mode will appear on the display. 

6. Flash the printer with Inkchip firmware in Recovery Mode. 

7. Check the firmware version of the printer. The firmware version displayed must be different from the non-renewable firmware version. This version is the chipless firmware version of InkChip. 

8. Activate chipless firmware with the key.

 

 

This is just an example of a process, it doesn't matter what model of printer you have. Please watch the video on our official YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7qWYWjMNFQ  

And after that just ran again the inkchip firmware upload in normal mode.
