"TRADE/FREE - LONDON - Epson R2400 for repairs w/ink & paper " Thu 09-Sep-10 09:21 AM by KTM9fiddy
Anyone interested in a project?? I "had" a perfectly good Epson R2400 printer that I brought with me from the states 2 years ago. About a year ago I bought new official Epson inks & Illford paper (A4 & A3). I hadn't used it all that much so it sat on the shelf most of the time.
A few months ago, I decided to sell but when I plugged it in to double check everything, she was dead. Coincidentally enough, the guy who wanted to buy it was a circuit designed so he came and checked it out anyway. He said that the input circuit was fried because I wasn't using the right power condiditioner (thank god it wasn't my computer & hard drives!), and a knowledgeable person could fix with a few new capacitors and some soldering skills. He didn't have the time to bother. Epson quoted about 225 quid to fix, or rebates to trade it in on a newer model. Either way - I have about half a set of Epson R2400 inks, a good amount of top quality paper, and a bonus printer that could potentially be fixed with enough fiddling.
Open to trades on just about anything - what have you got? Pickup only in Bayswater, London. If I don't get any offers for trade, I'll let it go for free as I'm moving at the end of the month. By free, I actually mean I'll trade for 4 Stella cans .
