    I had and loved an Espon 3800 printer for 7 years until it died the other day and I purchased a 3880 to replace it. I must say I have had nothing but trouble ever since!
    Can someone please help me out here? I downloaded the latest firmware because I do not like the printer turning itself off after several hours. I would rather reconfigure it to stay on and I know I can do that with the updated firmware. Problem is, I must also download the LFP Remote Panel software (which I did) but there is absolutely no option for a 3880 (or any 3000 series printer) in its list whatsoever. I downloaded it from the 3880 page on the Epson site, uninstalled it and downloaded it again, and STILL, no option for the 3880. I do see the 4880 and about 40 other printers but no 3880.
    How on earth do I upgrade the firmware on this printer?

    Well I just went to the European site and downloaded it from there. THIS one has the 3880 listed!

    Firmware

    Usually, the firmware is not a problem unless you find, as you did, that it is doing something not wanted. Caution: If you ever want to install a CISS unit, DO NOT UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE! EPSON HAS ADDED A NEW SECTION THAT STOPs THE PRINTER FROM ACCEPTING ANY CARTRIDGES BUT THEIRS!. This information is in the caution list of other forums I visit.
    These units save quite a lot of money compared to regular cartridges.

    Good luck in any situation.
