I have been printing large format for about 5 years and I've only ever printed on an Epson. I own a 4880 which I love and a 9900 which I have loved but am having major issues with now. The green channel is completely blocked and I cannot get it cleared. Strike 1. I am awaiting a call from Epson for an estimate to come and fix it. They were supposed to call me by this afternoon and never did. Strike 2!
I did have a printer service company come and change out the wiper blade assembly and run some cleaner through it to get the green unclogged to no avail. At this point, is it worth fixing? Or, should I just get a new printer. And, if I get a new printer, which one to get? If I go Epson it will have to be another 9900 - I cannot wait for the next models. They are around $3999 right now. Or, I could go to the new canon 8400 I believe it is for $3599 and that has a lot of ink in it. I wouldn't mind buying Epson again - especially since I am invested in Imageprint software and have a lot of ink still. However, I have read on here that if you only print on and off (which I do) and not everyday, then the Canon printer is a better option.
I would love any input anyone has regarding this. Also, does anyone know if I can sell my imageprint software license if I decide to go canon?
Thanks so much!
