I have a cheaper consumer-grade printer that I've owned for a couple of years now. It is an XYZ da Vinci Mini W and it seems to recuperate its incurred losses from selling a cheaper printer by jacking up the prices on their filaments. I don't have much of a problem with this (and I'm not asking to "hack" the chips to let me use cheaper filaments), but I went to switch out my filament with a full one I had laying around and I noticed the chip case it contained was a chip (probably removed by somebody for some odd reason). I used a chip that I had laying around, but the printer read the full spool of filament as "empty" because of the old chip. Because of this, I was wondering if there was a way to force the printer to keep printing when the spool is "empty" or if I can somehow reset the chip.

From what is read online, it depends on the firmware version your printer has. It seems that later versions keep track of tag serials and reports tampered tags as non-genuine tags. The best and most recent reference found is from 2018 which describes you should be creating new tags instead of resetting existing tags. This involves installing an Android App from unverified source and new "paper" NFC213 tags.
