My situation is that I have two 3880 printers, one of which I am trying to convert for piezography printing but I have been unsuccessful getting the printer to accept the IJM carts.
I transferred a set of OEM chips to the new carts and have re-seated them multiple times - I’m 90% sure I transferred OEM chips from old Epson to IJM carts correctly - i.e. MK to MK, PK to PK etc.
Not sure if it is an issue if I screwed up and an OEM chip ends up in a different IJM cart?
I have recorded the numbering information on the OEM chips and don’t see any pattern - seems random.
I’ve tried multiple troubleshooting scenarios based on some previous threads:
Placing 8 OEM carts (from my color printer) in the printer and 1 IJM cart - in various slots - still the presence of the single IJM cart causes the Waste Cart error message and also shows that multiple ink carts are unavailable. I have a new OEM waste cart in the print.
Placing 8 OEM carts in the printer and trying each of the nine IJM carts in the one available slot - still getting error messages.
Performed multiple resets of the printer - following the directions in the IJM handout that accompanied the inks & carts.
Tried placing the IJM carts in my color 3880 - same problems exhibited in that printer.
I have noticed that slots 2, 5 & 7 seem to show full ink while all the others appear empty occasionally when I have the full set of IJM carts installed.
I’m using shades 2 through 7 and flush in the remaining 3 carts.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
