I’m having trouble getting my 3800 up and running with a new set of cartridges, and piezography inkset. My printer is failing to recognize both the LM and the Y cartridges. When I put the Epson chips back on the old Epson cartridges the printer recognizes everything fine, including the seven other refillable carts, so it seems like something is going on with the electronics on my refillable cartridges.
I tried replacing these two individually and here is what I get:
[li]Starting from the ‘good’ setup (seven refillable carts, two OEM carts), if I replace just the LM cart with the LM refillable I consistently get the LM cart missing response from the printer.
[/li][li]Starting from the ‘good’ setup, if I replace the Y cart with the Y refillable cart I consistently get an error message from the printer that the LC, LM, AND Y carts are all missing. Strange?
I read through the forums and tried the recommended fixes I found (checking pins/adjusting tabs, resetting printer) and nothing has worked. Does it seem odd that I would get TWO bad reset chips? Anything else I should try?
