These tips from Jagdish Rathore (India) and I have been granted permission to publish on this blog.

    step 1 T50 -T60 resetting

  5. After 20 second turn off printer  and remove soldering wire from pin no. 1,2,3,4 ( back in original condition)

    This method will only kill your Printer Board

  9. grayfox says:

    Tried it. Doesn’t work. Printer won’t turn on after soldering the jumper. But after removing the jumper the printer turns on as usual but no success with the reset. No harm in trying though, just make sure you know your way around soldering the printer board.

    i have tried to solve error 21000068 by soldering the 1,2,3,4 pins but when i turn it on it does’nt turn on. can anyone help me out on how you managed to turn the printer on while soldered and any other to adjustment date for T50.

  17. jm2k7 says:

    This guide is what you get by joining the 1-2-3-4 pin printer will not start.

    Welding repair again, then everything returns to normal, the printer starts, but continuously blocked.

    No matter what you do will never be unlocked.

  22. nathan says:

    Finally i got the answers for a very long time question about this issue on my own i solve error 21000068.. yeah this right.. the reason why you get this error 21000068 when you trying to reset your Epson T60 printer using T60 resetter is just simple, the resetter you are using is not compatible with the chip attached to the board of printer. try to use T50 resetter and it will 100% work guaranteed and tested.. heres the link to download the working resetter for Epson T60

  23. OhchyKwajah says:

    These Epson bastards thought you could not get a sulution. I’m happy it worked perfectly on TX650, Andrebons may be too the printer to sewage attendant instead of a proper technician.
