Re: Yes you can mix OEM and Cone ink...

What I'm saying is that if you have OEM LLB aand Yellow cartridges installed and the others were refillables with the transferred OEM chips (which I understand must be removed before they show empty), I can't see how the system can work without the piggy-backed controller chips applied to the LLB and Yellow. when those refillables carts go to empty.

Again I'm not the expert with a 3800/3880, Jtoolmand and Ivr Wiener have played a lot with these piggy-back chip setups, and there are different schemes from various suppliers I run a R3000 and R2880 and they are extremely easy to refill and reset.

Bob, ALL of the Cone Re-fillable 80ml cartridges must have the corresponding OEM cartridge chip UNDER the chip that is supplied with the refillable cartridges.  Also, as long as the refill-ables are used the chip arrangement remains the same.  Never does the Ink Monitor indicate the accurate ink status for ANY of the re-fillable cartridges.

However, when there is a mix of OEM and re-fillable cartridges, the OEM cartridge status Monitor (with OEM cartridges) appears to function normally as when ALL cartridges were OEM.  I was assured (by the Cone Staff) that the OEM ink status does not have to be empty and the OEM chip can be used if empty --OR-- not empty.  My two were VERY low but not displayed as empty when I changed the first two.

Thanks for your comments.  I had hoped that I had not missed some rather important details since I must confess that I am VERY detailed regarding Pre-Purchase and/or Pre-Usage for about anything.  My Wife should refer to this as being a "nit picker" -- but thankfully, she doesn't.
