      Re that issue, there are some great folks online who have printed the

      techie ways around those microchips in order to get your printer to,

      first, use every last little bit of ink in the cartridge and, second,

      to reprogram your printer to enable you to use refills. Additionally,

      my parents’ Epson printer had an “end of service life” microchip which

      I was able to reprogram to enable them to continue using their printer.
