My R2880 has stopped recognizing the type of the new cartridge when I swap between MK and PK and vice-versa. (Right now it's stuck on PK.)

(Running nozzle checks, nozzle cleanings in various combinations of reboot and non-reboot doesn't solve the problem.)

It does recognize that there is a cartridge there, but shows it as the last type that was there rather than the new type. It also correctly recognizes a new non-PK or MK cartridge when one is inserted to replace an empty.

One response on another forum said that the R2880 required both the MK and PK cartridges to be at least 50% full before it would recognize the new type.

Can anyone confirm this?

If it is the case, then this is not acceptable. It would mean, if you switch paper types at all regularly, you'd end up with a multitude of PK and MK cartridges with <50% ink - yet far from empty - that were unusable.

If this is the case for the R2880, is it also true for the R3000? I.e., do the PK and MK cartridges have to be at least at 50% before it will do an automatic swap of black inks? And what about the 3880?

Clarification would be very appreciated.
