3880 chip resetter that works
Sep 18, 2012

I bought this thing:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370508522799
in late July; it sat in US customs since August 8th... I got it today.

IT RESETS OEM INK CHIPS! I tried on 1 randomly selected OEM chip, CYAN, which read 46% before a reset; after the reset is read 100% through the printer.

Included manual states that this resetter also can reset the maintenance cartridge, however after about 50 tries I still cant reset maintenance cartridge. The light does change to green after about 49 tries, but printer still reports maintenance tank at 43%

The trick to resetting the OEM ink cartridge is to open the lid, power off the printer, take out cart, reset it, reinstall it and power the printer back up. It will not work if printer stays on during reset.
