I imagine this question has been asked before but I was unable to find a thread about it.
I am using a refillable ink system with my Epson 9880. Since these are non Epson Genuine cartridges the printer will not display ink levels or ink usage. The level I understand because it doesn't how much it started with. But I'm sure it sill knows how much ink it's using but Epson doesn't like people using 3rd party inks so it doesn't report it. Does anyone know of a way to either (safely) trick the printer into thinking it has genuine ink, or to force it to report ink usage?
