  1. Hello, I wanna ask what to do if the reset Epson Adjustment Program Resetter doesn’t working? I already download the program and follow the steps but when I initialize it doesn’t working there’s a pop up its says “Communication error”. I hope you help me. Thank you.

      • I have the same problem, I can’t even check the current counter value, the message shown is “Communication error! Error Code: 20000010”

        I clicked on Get Status, this shows “Communication error occurred.
        Check the I/F cable connection and power of printer.”

        if it also about the drivers how do I reinstall them?
