Thanks, everyone, for the sympathetic comments.

I've ordered another 3000, a refurb for $750 shipped, from ecost.com.

I'm going to have this unit repaired if it is less than half the cost of a
replacement, then convert it to quad tone.

Is a head replacement something a super geek could possibly achieve himself
with parts and a service manual? Anyone tried it?

Epson's web site is completely free of service information, except two
third-party listings for parts under "Support." Should I be looking for a
general computer service shop until I find one that claims epson service?

Also, something odd happened with this same 3000 while I was away for two
days. I found a yellow cartridge that I had just filled to now be
completely, dead empty. Did a whole cart of ink siphon into the waste ink
container by itself? What would cause this? If I send the printer for
service and it gets rotated in shipment, will there be yellow ink dripping
out of the carton?!

Thanks in advance...
