Default Compatible print heads? Epson Stylus Pro 4000 4800 4880

Hello and forgive me if this is a repeat question but does anyone have a list of compatible Epson Stylus Pro heads? I'm looking to replace a missing head in a 4880 body and found a good-looking 4800 printer. Does anyone know offhand if that'll work? They look to be the same. Thanks in advance!

Hello Neil , The 4800 uses a standard Epson DX5 Head which is used also in the 7800 and 9800 series printers - It is a good system but it is not the same as the one used on the 4880, The 4880 also uses a DX5 head but its the new improved version said to have a special coating and to be more sensitive than the 4800's version - I dont know if the old will work in the new but if I were going to try , I would look at the connections on the 4880 and compare them with the other and see if the ribbons and connectors are the same - The question being why not just use the 4800 and put the 4880 on the parts shelf until another comes available .
