Does anyone have any recommendations for printer repairs.
I have an Epson R2400 - I live in Huddersfield. I've looked at Epsons website and they recommend one in Liverpool, but it looks like that as now closed.

Printer Medics in Leeds used them a few years back. Still an independant I think.
what is wrong with it? may well be a simple fix.
Thanks Keith . Gareth ive tried all sorts so i want to leave it to the proffesionals
well that's me told...lol
Gareth it came across wrong. I have a problem with clogged heads. Ive tried head cleaning solution but to no avail. I just want it sorting.
Clogged heads, you can lift the head out and set it in a saucer of cleaning fluid over night and then flush it problem solved. Running head cleans as it sits will make it worse. On my 1400 and 1280 etc it is a matter of removing 4 screws pulling the ribbon cable and lift it out. Google it and im sure there is a step by step video on it for the 2400 also.
Been doing this for years for myself and other people.
But if your not comfortable doing it then yes a repair shop is in order and they will do the same thing or charge you for a new head, which is not needed.
It did't come across the wrong way I just laughed at the comment.
Nick have a look here at the 4th post easier than removing the heads, no idea if you tried this yet.
Many moons ago I cured the clogged heads of an elderly Epson Printer by removing all the inks then using a cotton bud and near boiling water to wash them through....Power Off of course:
When my Epson R300 broke down I rung Epson and they told me to take it to pudseycomputers.co.uk. It is still running today.
I forgot to mention they are in Stanningly road in Leeds
I've removed the head out of my 2400 in the past but if it goes again I might consider using a service.
