I have an Epson 3880 and since buying the refillable inks, I have been replacing the genuine ones with refillables as they run out.
Now, I have 2 issues:
The first, after some inactivity, the printer prints no black ink. The matte black and photo black are both full. It is only after a lengthy (and using a lot of ink) power clean that it works and prints out black. All the other colours print fine. Why is this? I have tried resetting the printer and cleaning the outsides of the cartridges in case of any debris, but still only prints black after a power clean.
The second issue, after one of the times where a power clean was needed to get the black working again, the vivid magenta (genuine) ran out. I replaced it with the refillable cart and the printer is telling me ‘ink cartridge error. Please install the correct cartridge’ I checked the chips and the connectors and everything looks fine. Also tried turning the printer on and off and it still says the same message. Help!
