Hello there! We have an Epson 3800 that seems to be leaking PK ink, leaving blobs of ink on the print and the cart was empty even though the display shows a mostly full cart. After digging through various forums it seems that perhaps the ink system assembly may need replacing. Since this is an old printer the part is no longer available from most sources. I did find an “ink cartridge holder assembly” on eBay (INK CARTRIDGE HOLDER PIPE ASSEMBLY fits FOR EPSON PRO 3800 3880 3850 3890 3800C | eBay)
Does anyone know if this is the same as the ink system assembly? The eBay site does not list a part number although the photo looks similar to the ink system assembly.
Since the new epson printers can’t use the InkjetMall inks I really don’t like the idea of replacing the 3800 with one of those.
Thanks so much for you help : )
