Re: R3000 Refillable Cartridges or CIS
In reply to camerashy, Mar 7, 2013

Not in that Epson model but I found (as have others) CIS systems can cause problems. I started using refillable cartridges in two different models about 4 years ago - they go in and out fairly regularly and no sealing problem to date. In any event, it is not exactly difficult to make new seals - they are only rings of thin plastic after all. I always refill every cartridge, even if only one is shown as needing to be replaced. I reset the chips on every one as well. Then when they go back, only one cleaning cycle takes place - instead of one for every cartridge replaced individually.
