  15. Fz says:

    @Juri, to prevent your problem before using this software you must manually reset on your printer.

  16. Dr Feelgood says:

    This proggy is cool! But i can see my printer on the list?? Why??

  17. Fz says:

    @Dr Feelgood, There are two possibilities, this program does not support your printer or any error on your printer/windows installation.

  18. Missel says:

    @Juri, first you have to set your printer on stand-by mode doing this
    unplug the AC cable, plug it in while you press the on/off button, & then instantly push the red button, after that a yellow light will come up
    once you did that, run the program and it will start to read the EEPROM then you’ll be able to reset the ink counters

  25. Ralph says:

    WARNING!!! I tried using MPtool on my MP170. I misread the instructions initially and now my printer is toast!!! I did everything as specified up to getting the printer in low level mode. Then I unplugged it (wrong step) plugged it back in, turned it on, and then ran mptool. Now my printer comes up, goes through the initialize sequence, but then shows garbage on the LCD screen and no longer functions. Any idea how to reset it back like it was?
