Epson Epson Stylus Photo 1200

Epson dfx-8500

I need help regarding the price of the print head. The printer repairshop told me when they change the print head the spare parts cost $1200 bucks. Is that the real price?
AJ...Just to let you know: The "Print Head Kit" lists thru Epson Company at $440.00 [MSRP US$], plus any Shipping & Handling charges involved and tax. Thats for the part only and does not include the labor to install the part and possible related cleaning. It would also not include the labor involved to do all the necessary Factory Settings when you install a new Print Head Assembly. You need to find out what the actual labor rate per hour is from that repair shop and if that $1200 price includes the labor or not...The actual selling price of any part could be higher, once the dealer marks it up to cover his costs involved, but doubtfull that the part would be over $500.00 [ /-], if it actually came from Epson Company...Denny Conway
