Epson 880 Printer - won't charge ink cartridges
Posted on 2003-03-27
Recently purchased a used Epson 880 Printer on Craig's List for my husband. It had been sitting around for a bit, but it was working when we first got it. It ran fine until we had to change the black ink cartridge. Now (a) It doesn't seem to charge up the new ink. In addition, after my husband put a new black cartridge in it, I followed the "clean the nozzle" "clean the heads" etc. instructions. Now the printer won't print at all. The print head moves back and forth but no ink comes out. I carefully squirted some cartridge and head cleaner down under the ink cartridges (I removed those first). Gently blotted up the excess cleaner. Still no go. Could this problem be related to the "Chip" problem I read about here? Is there a work-around?
