yes, Keith, that would make sense if I were some more reasonable and less anxious kind of guy.
At this point I’ve just bought a new Y cart and a LM cart too. Being that it was the LM cart that showed up as missing in the display panel I simply put the original Epson LM cart in just to check this is a new and fresh righteous cart with its new chip. Well, first the printer complained: “Maintenance, cartridge error, please replace”. Don’t have any new of maintenance carts so will leave this for tomorrow. Tried to reset the chip with the corresponding chip resetter but the thing keeps not working.
And no, I don’t have any spare chip. On the other side I appreciate your will to help but, as you say, I’m running out of time so delivery is impossible, this time. Thank you a lot any way.
As for the shim and such yes, as soon as the cart was in the display asks you to close ink carts door. But once the door is closed the missing cart message shows up immediately. Seems to me any change in contacts prompts that change in the display and this doesn’t mean things are right enough until you get all doors closed. How much I miss the “READY” message showing in the display! long sigh… Will be back at this tomorrow afternoon.
