Hey does anyone know where I can get a replacement head for an Epson 4800? I don't know what happened to my printer but suddenly my films look like shit. I use the filmdirect system, where the special film black ink is in the Black cartridge, and the other 5 cartridges are just have head cleaner. The films have alway printed perfectly until now. The only thing I can think of that I did differently is that I accidentally left the printer on and unused for about 10 days. Anyway, I have tried a nozzle cleaning and multiple power cleaning and it still sucks.
I saw a video about changing the print head and it seems fairly easy, but according to Epson you cannot buy a new head from them, you have to pay to have a tech come out and do it. For that price, I might as well just buy a 24" printer since I want one anyway.
