new printer or repair suggestions please!!
I went to print today and the initial pages were fine. Then the pages were very faint and blurry. No lights are blinking ,such as low ink, but I thought I would try and change the black ink anyway. When I hold down the "cleaning button" to get the print head to move left it will only move an inch and then makes a funny noise and goes back to the right. I am guessing I need a new printer. Probably not worth a repair. Any suggestions? There are so many to choose from!! I already have a photo printer so do not need that. Mostly I use this for professional looking documents and paychecks. So it needs to be good print quality and have straight lines. Sometimes my, now broken Epson, would print wavy lines. Even when the darn thing was new.
I did try cleaning the print head too, and the test paper printed only color lines. So something is wrong with the black ink.
I am cranky because I need work documents tomorrow a.m. Sigh
