I’ve just done my first cleaning (capping station, print head) and re filled my new carts (without the reset points), but the displayed ink levels on all the carts don’t seem to have changed from pre-refill levels. I’ve tried unplugging the R3000 for a long time, but nothing’s changed.
The instructions say that the carts automatically reset “when the cartridge reads empty in the printer”. That suggests the reset won’t happen until that point.
Postscript: I’ve just seen an article about this in relation to users refilling carts before they need re-filling. I thought I was doing myself a favor by not relying on the Epson ink level displays which, if inaccurate, could leave me with dry carts and printing problems.
I expect I’ll be able to get back in sync with the Epson ink level display when it eventually ‘thinks’ the carts should be empty and if I re-fill then. Correct?
Does waiting for the Epson empty message before re-filling run the risk of letting the ink levels get too low?
