Will Old 3880 Cartridges Stop Working Before Empty?
May 1, 2013

I am considering getting a used Epson 3880. The owner has printed less than 50 pages since purchasing the printer in December 2011. The ink levels are one third down. The printer works perfectly, and head check is fine.

However the Status shows that the ink cartridges were made in March 2011; and the printer reports: "Ink Life 6 months".

The printer has not been run since Christmas either, except to check it recently.

Epson warned that it is possible that with old cartridges, and "Ink Not Recgnised" error may occur.

Is it sensible to buy this printer, as the savings are considerable (I am not in the USA hence pay much more than US prices).
