    Question Epson Print head

    Wasn't sure where to post this, so apologies if this is not the correct area to do so.

    I have an Epson r1800 that the print head in it has dies. I was wondering if anyone knows anywhere to buy a new one or a second hand one? It is an Epson DX5 print head if that helps at all.

    Thanks in advance for anyone that can help me!

    I'm sure i contacted Epson when i needed a print head for my A3 printer and they pointed me in the direction of a UK supplier. It wasn't cheap (about 80 IIRC) but then printer cost about 400. Have you tried soaking yours in Isopropanol Alcohol ?
    Might be worth a try as it's much cheaper than a new print head.

    I have already cleaned the print head in the past with success by taking it out of the printer and soaking it in warm water. So I know it is not just clogged, I need a new one
