My 3800 has after market tanks and Ink form http://www.inkjetcarts.us (very,VERRY good!) There method is, if you are using aftermarket ink with a ink cover cheater (switch key):

When any of the ink levels goes down to empty or waste ink tank reaches full, you will need to reset them by following steps below:

1) Keep printer power ON (The LCD panel should show maintenance tank full or cartridges empty).
2) Remove Switch Key from the printer.

3) Release all cartridges from 1 to 9 (left to right) so cartridge chips and chip sensors in the printer do not connect each other.
4) Open the maintenance tank door and pull out the waste ink maintenance tank.
5) Reinsert the waste tank and close the waste tank door.
6) Reinsert the switch key.
7) Wait until the printer monitor shows: Load ink.
8) Remove the switch key and pull out the waste ink maintenance tank again.
9) Reinsert the waste tank and close the waste tank door.
10) Insert cartridges from 1 to 9 (left to right)
11) Insert the switch key back into the printer.

InkJet Carts Has a little video. if you have epson inks, you might be able to reset the tank by opening and closing the cover when they tell to remove and insert the key. In this case it's worth a shot. You wont ruin the printer - from personal experience. Speak to Ross at InkJetCarts. He is a gold mine of information.
