I just bought and received 9 refillable 80 ml cartridges, syringes, and inks for my 3885, bought in HK. I followed the instructions both on line and included in the order (I also watch the video as well). When I placed the cart in the 3885 it gave me a "Ink Cartridge Error, Please install the correct Cartridge" I checked the placement and condition of the chips, and even did a reset of the printer as described on your site.
I also check that the reseting cheep its in contact with the original chip underneath, and everything is fine (i pain the tips of the reset chip, so later I could see if the tips were touching the corresponding contacts of the original Epson chip underneath, of course I clean properly with isopropyl later on).
Also I try the way of removing the waste ink tank and power off, later power on, input the waste tank and insert again all the cartage, but still displaying the same error.
The carton box of the cartridge shows a label MAY-2013 and SEPTEMBER-2013.
Also each position have the correct Epson chip and the correct location.
I don't know what to do and its very frustrating, I bought it also the MPS system (k7 piezography) and its impossible to do nothing....
I hope I can fix it soon, I heard that the head its not seal and the remain ink might dry.....
Thx and regards from China
