Phil doesn’t work for Inkjetmall, he was trying to help you figure this out, he is a fellow user such as yourself.
I need to know if you do in fact have the battery style chips, please follow this link to verify which chips your cartridges have http://www.inkjetmall.com/tech/content.php?169-Battery-Replacement-for-4900-and-R3000-Chips
If you do have the battery style chips, then I will sent you replacement batteries for them, you can use this same article for replacing the batteries. Please let me know which style chips you have on your R3000 carts so I can get a replacement in the mail asap.
Yes, I have the two gold dots which are used to reset the chips to show full ink. Thank you Kelly. Lonny
