I just bought a new R220 today after my old R200 finally broke down on me after 1000s of prints. My problem now is I used ink tanks from my old r200 in the R220 but it won't recognize the ink tanks!!! I'm in dire need of this printer to be up and running asap. Is there a different chipset for the R200 that my R220 won't recognize. If any one can help me that would be awesome.

Thanks Jason

I believe the R220 uses a different black chip than the R200 but that's something that solved one users problem with an R200 CIS system, not with the OEM or replacement cartridges.

Given that you're using a CIS though I'd guess you've hit the same issue... The discussion is available here:

I'd guess the original poster (Gumby) can probably help with info on where he sourced the replacement chip(s) if you contact him or post on there.
