Stupidity or Greed of Epson??

I bought an Epson Sure Color P-800 printer in the US and brought it with me to Serbia where I now live. Unsuspecting.....

To my horror, I come to discover that inkjet cartridges bought here in Europe will NOT work on this $1200 machine, and only US bought ones will work. What gives? The chips are set differently, apparently ? ! / ! ? ! ?

However, nor Epson, nor B&H will ship cartridges to Serbia! Epson won't allow it.

So, I feel totally screwed!

Nobody told me that the cartridges for this printer are nationalized!

This is total Epson insanity!!!!

This is my third Epson printer. Why Epson? Because it can print panoramas; Canons don't do that, as far as I know.

if anybody knows a way around this, much obliged. !!!

I did contact Epson and let them know my dilemma!


Joke: will my printer run on slibovitz?
