Epson 1200: Where to fix in NYC area, inexpensive?
In trying to clean my printer because it was picking up ink and leaving marks on my prints, I dislodged what is called the Cap Assembly, and, despite working on it, with a downloaded service manual, for a week, I can't get it to print, it makes grinding noises and flashes more lights than a pinball machine.
It is probably 5 years old, and I have a dilemma. I wouldn't mind having the Epson 2200 instead, but it's a lot of money for me. I also have 2 unused color cartridges and 3 unused black cartridges, which would be orphaned if I junked the printer. Epson would charge about $250 to repair the printer.
Does anybody out there know of a decent 3rd party repair shop in the NYC area that would do a good job at less than the high prices of Epson?
