    Perfect timing to get that "Replace Printhead #3" error that won't go away.
    Replaced printhead, cleaned connectors and reset EVERYTHING.
    Any suggestions before I throw it in the dumpster? I want to make it functional so I can trade it in

    If you can find anyone to take it as a trade in they won't care if it's running or not.

    your not going to get a trade in on it anyway.

    Call Brian at LexJet, you can pick up a 315 with a free take up reel for $9999 if you order before the end of the year.

    The 315 runs much better than the 25500, it is only 54" as opposed to the 60" for the 25500, but I got over that real quick.

    I agree. Get a HP latex 300 series and you will get very happy. My HP Latex 360 is been great for years being my production printer.

    Might call a junker and see if they'll haul it off for you for free. We've gotten rid of a few printers that way.

    cr@p! someone picked up the 315 before I did.
    I'm trying to get some money off the L25500 just for the psychological damage.

  10. I had a HP rep stop in yesterday trying to get us to buy a Z series; I gave him hell.

    Why don't you sell it on ebay as is?

    I post a few years back how to bandaid it. It has to do with the ribbon cable that reads the head, it gets out of position.

    If you toss it, take a picture of the serial number and pull the motherboard so you can use it as a future trade-in

    I just purchased the HP 365 last week but the only machine HP would discount for having a trade-in was the 570. JJ Bender offered me $200 for my 260 plus they would come and pick it up.

    dang only $200? That machine still has quite a few more years of support by HP.

    With printer disconnected from power- clean the ribbon cable the printhead contacts. This cable is held in correct height by plastic pin coming through small whole above contact area. Pin can be broken so ribbon cable could be sliding up and down. Switch printhead with other one of this color set and this will tell you if it’s the head or cables that have a problem. Text me with any questions.
