Question about Epson Stylus Pro 7880 InkJet Printer
Y, C, and PK are recognised ok, but not VM. Have pulled it out and reinserted a few times and even reset the chip, but to no avail. Any suggestion appreciated.
Compatible is the key word. They have a connector that reset the internal counter. Usually a fuse or a pizo cell that recognizes the cartridge. It could be covered with ink or toner. But compatible means recharged in most instances. So try the old one again visually look at where the cartridge contacts the machine.and the connector could have came out of place or broken. Take it back they mite not have replaced the fuse when it was remanufactured. I know that there is a big price difference. This is a true case of "you pay for what you get". Stick to o.e.m. products and you will be a satisfied customer. Trust me on this one. Been there 35 years of experience.

Testimonial: "Thanks Carl, I appreciate your reply. I have been using compatible/replacements cartridges for at least 20 years and this is the first real problem I have ever had with them. I guess that's why they are so popular. Mind you, this is the first time I have ever had a wide format printer and there may be a set of different issues that come with it and replacement carts. Having said that; what you suggest may be the case. While waiting for an answer I jiggled the cart a bit and pushed the end to the left in the hope of seating the chip better on the right - it seems to have worked. I have turned it on and off several times and get a "Ready" each time. So all good and thanks Carl for taking the time. Best regards Wayne"
