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... W - Turn off HTML mail features.
