I have a Epson 3880 I purchase 2 sets of cartridges earlier in the year but haven’t been able to install them because original Epson chips weren’t available at the time. The cartridges are filled with PIEZO Flush
The printer isn’t recognizing the VLM cartridge (“please install ink cartridge). I have gone through all the suggested steps for correcting this: checking the click tabs on the reset chip, inspecting the contact pins on the reset chip, pressing the reset chip firmly into place, cleaning the contacts. After no success I replaced the reset chip from my other cartridge (no success) I then removed the chip from the Epson VLM Ink cartridge and also replaced it. Still no success . I have gone thru the reset procedure with the maintenance tank shutting down 3min and replacing cartridges in order. When I put an original Epson Ink cartridge in it is recognized and I am able to operate the printer. I find it odd that both reset chips did not work, also the reset chips are marked VLM but the cartridge is Marked LM
Nothing has made a difference. What would you suggest at this point?
I have ordered replacement reset chips.
