Hello Everyone -- First time poster, and hope I'm not posting a question that's been asked many times before....
I just got my Piezography Selenium K7 Inks (for printing both matte and glossy), went through the entire process of filling the new tanks, removing the chips from the Epson tanks, installing them the proper way, snapped the large chip back over top of each one, inserted each cartridge firmly back into my Epson 3880, made sure that all the cartridges were in their correct location (Magenta with Magenta, Cyan with Cyan etc), turned the printer on and.....none of the cartridges is recognized.
The message on the LCD screen is 'NO INK CARTRIDGE' and all 9 positions are flashing. I took each one out, carefully verified the position of each Epson chip, re-seated each large chip (yes all three plastic tabs are present on each one, all three pins underneath are present and accounted for), and even cleaned the contacts on the large chips with a bit of contact cleaner and turned the printer off and on a couple of times, but still no go. And I repeated this process a couple of times.
So now what? Any suggestions?
