When I replace an MK cartridge with a PK one, the cartridge ink levels show the new cart as being full, but still shows it as an MK one.
So I can't print on any of the photo papers that require the PK cartridge.

I found one post on DPR that seemed perhaps relevant. The OP said he had solved the problem, but, when asked how, didn't reply.

Win7 32-bit, with the latest Epson sw installed.

Turning the printer on and off, and running a nozzle check (thought it might force a recognition of the new cart) didn't help. (Nozzle checks show everything to be fine.)

Anyone have a solution that I could try? Or do I junk it? (Probably between the shipping to Epson and repair costs, having them repair it wouldn't be worth it.)

Many thanks.
