Walker, I'm wondering why this isn't mentioned anywhere? I bought a whole second set of cartridges and was sent the ones without the battery. Did the initial inkcharge, let it sit 48 hours, and tried to run a second but got errors all over the place on the printer. Now my only option is to print until all the piezoflush is used up or shows empty, and then top off and reinsert OR i buy another set of chips with batteries.
Man, this is getting to cost more than just taking it to get flixed. I've bought a whole bunch of Piezoflush, and now 1/2 is gone already. I bought syringes, cartridges, etc. All this for just cleaning and maintaining my r3000. In addition, i have another set of cartridges with cone ink.
