Epson Epson LQ 300

Epson 2200 wont print

I bought an Epson 2200 from Ebay, for $300. - supposedly "mint"..I printed 2 prints when I received it and found the colors of the print incorrect, mostly magenta in fact. A nozzle print out showed a few needed cleanng. I didn't take time to try and correct things right then as I had found the same printer at a second hand store a couple days later for $100...!

The second worked perfectly and I let the first one sit a couple months. I decided i would resell it and have been trying to clear things up (clogged jets) with cleaning solution. To no avail.

I've soaked the little cleaning sponge where the carriage parks and let it sit over night. I've fastened syringe with tube over each feed point and left over night also..nothing seems to work.
It hardly prints but a few specks now.


I emailed ebayer for my money back but he doesnt reply. He also isnt selling any other items at this point in time I noticed, even though he has a 100\% listing for over 700 i tems in the past.
I think I should be refunded.

meanwhile..is there anything else i should know about to get the damn printer printing again??!!

thanks!!

It is likely that the pump is failing.

I see, so is the pump accessible, repairable, replaceable?

I discoverd just now that the small rubber tube (does it actually suck?) is not connected at the bottom end...!
