Hello Bob

We have had the same problem with our Epson 4800 but when we turned the auto cleaning off it is now up to us to decide when to clean;.- 

Click MENU
go to AUTOCLEANING and chose OFF

Hope it works on the 3880 too. It was soooo frustrating with the autocleaning

Good luck


PS When you are in Rome the Ditta G. POGGI Art shop is well worth a visit!

I tried to send this mail yesterday but I used another email address so maybe that's why it doesn't show on the list.
Sorry if you receive it twice.
