Thanks Brian, My printer actually turned up today and looks in great shape. The seller told me all the carts where empty or close to it.
I had a quick look and they are all nearly full which is great news. I think he got confused that they where flashing a caution sign, when I think that means the carts are out of date.
So it turns out I only have to buy a LT grey cart which is great news.
Just looking for Win 7 drivers now and will have to go out and buy some paper to play with.
This is very exciting.
Anyone know of any cheap HP carts? ( can be out of date I don't mind)
