Re: What should I check when buying a used Epson 3880

What was a waste of 90 minutes and two gallons of gas.

Ink was at 50-70% instead of the claimed 90% plus.  Maintenance cartridge was almost at capacity.  Ran nozzle check and there were gaps.  Ran auto nozzle check, where the printer iteratively checks output and cleans as necessary, but the Maintenance cartridge reached capacity after awhile and everything stopped.  What had printed to that point still had gaps.  Said goodbye.

Epson has a $250 rebate till the end of March, so I just ordered one from Amazon.
