I have been told that it may just need a new set of inks or more likely a new print head. yours if you want to come and pick it up.

Have you tried Epson interaction centre? I rang my local computer shop who is also the Epson repair centre here and he said it would be expensive to replace the head and that they do refurbished models but they need the serial number from the old one and they take it back and it is a lot cheaper that way. I have the R800 and asked him if he could just swap the heads as it is basically the same m/c. except one is A4 and one is A3 but he said there are some minor differences and it can't be done. I was thinking about having it but desided not to after all but thought you might be interested in my information. CHEERS Vic.

Thanks Vic,
I was quoted 150 to have the print heads replaced and like you decided against this. I am now the proud owner of a Canon 9950i and must say I am much happier with this than any of the 3 Epsons I have owned.
