Now for those who are game, I suggest they ask Epson!! After all we are still using their 'genuwine' OEM ink in 'genuwine' Epson carts--why should there be an objection?

Well I just asked Epson, an "advanced" techie. He said there is no way to changed the black ink except for when you specify paper types, at least in the Mac which I called about. I forgot to ask about Windows.


You can change the black inks directly on the 3880's control panel under Menu.  Page 101 in the user's  guide.


Unfortunately my printer changes to Photo Black (which I don't use) and when I change it back it dumps that ink. I never have a problem with printing with matte black, but the ink changes on its own when I am not printing usually when I get a "print skew" message. It does not make sense, no wonder Epson techies don't believe me. So I don't get any help even though it's still on warranty.
