    Hi Guys,
    I need your suggestion...

    I have already two JV3 SP-75II and I bought a third one used & received today.

    I want to make a complete tune-up on this unit.
    But before, I'm trying to start the unit to find the overall condition.

    First problem... The printer didn't recognize the cartridge (chips).

    I tried many chips and I have the message KKMMCCYY on the LCD.
    If I try the same cartridge in my other printers, cartridge is good...
    I tried also permanent chips from my other printers, same problem ( message KKMMCCYY)
    If I put the cartridge in place, no bip is coming, nothing happen?

    Sometime I could have XKMMCCYY, the X messsage like a defect cartridge?

    I removed the battery and I tried a complete reset of the printer...
    Nothing has changed...

    So now I really don't what to try?

    Any suggestions:frustrated:

    Thanks in advance!

    do you have any wash cartridges? if so you can check to see if the chip readers are operating by telling it to do a wash head, it will pump the lines free on ink, then tell you to install the wash carts. This probably wouldn't be a bad idea if this is a new unit for you, and hasn't been in service for a while.
