Epson Stylus Photo price+problem help please

  bof:) 18:38 19 Jun 08

Hi all, a neighbour has been offered an Epson Stylus Photo 1290 printer for £30.

Firstly, is this a reasonable price for this secondhand?

Secondly, having installed the drivers, it could not print a test page and I cannot find out how to clean the printer heads.

Nor can I find out how to view if there is any ink in the cartridges.

Could someone help with this please?

Many thanks,

IMHO .... No! £20 at most. One can buy on-line for only £34. Set of Epson inks cost approx £41!

If you have the driver disc, then the full Manual is usually on the same disc. Or you should be able to download the manual from the Epson website.
