Powell, Since my last posting, I've dismembered my faulty 1270 which now covers my table! It was worth it just to see the enormous ink waste-pads which take up most of the space in the black plastic tank that forms most of the underside of the printer, and had far more ink in them than I would have thought. I had also decided that swopping the electronics assembly between the good and bad printers would show me whether it was a print-head problem or an electronic problem (I don't want to touch the print-head because of the realignment problems). That's tomorrow's job. However, you might like to know that on the Epson UK website under www.Epson.co.uk/spares, you can download a spares guide for each Epson printer that gives exploded diagrams of all assemblies and parts with numbers, and you can also download the complete Epson price list of spares (all 530 pages) and look up the cost of the spares for your printer. The list gives the prices in pounds and dollars. I can't find a service manual yet though, and the Service Agent I spoke to yesterday said they can't supply them either.
