I just received my new cartridges, but one (so far) isn’t being accepted by the printer. I tried pushing it in further and adding a wedge underneath, but no luck (that trick worked with the yellow, but now the magenta won’t read). I ordered cartridges from Inkjet mall because the ones I had found on line have been causing my so many problems. But the cartridges and the problems are identical. What to do?
Did you try putting the chip from your OEM cart onto the 4880 cart? They are interchangeable. I’ve run nearly 8 4800 and 4880 model printers with IJM carts successfully this way (pre being hired by IJM mind you).
I was running it that way previously. I had to push the cart in and hold it as it booted up. But I got the new carts so I wouldn’t have to do that. Now it won’t accept it, no matter what I do.
Is there anything else I can try? I’m stuck in the middle of a power cleaning.
The power cleaning is what moves the cartridge slightly. I recommend wedging all of the cartridges, even the ones that are working during the power cleaning procedure.
I’ve used small flat-head screw drivers in the past for that.
Please private message me the details of what cartridge is funky and we’ll get a replacement out.
