Epson Stylus Color 800 printer seems to operate but no printing

(From: Al Savage (asavage@iname.com).)

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the both the purge pump and the printhead in the Stylus series (300, 400, 800, ColorII) are very trouble prone. I've scrapped a couple dozen of them. The cost of a replacement printhead is more than the printer on sale.

They do print nicely when they're working, though. My experience is that they don't work for very long.
