    We all know HP will no longer make inks for the HP Latex 260. I am so angry especially since it is a great printer!! What am I supposed to do with this printer? Use it as a coffee table?

    Question, I know on eBay you can buy 3rd party inks, but what about 3rd party printheads?

    We're interested in the same thing.
    Already replaced it with an epson surecolor s40600 printer, but want to keep it going as long as possible.
    The Epson has better colors but no automatic cutoff for the finished print.

    We've tested all third party printheads and have found a 50% defect rate. We are trying to load up on large qtys of these Hp oem printheads for our clients. We do accept trade ins on the L26500 towards newer models like the 100 and 300 series if you like? Plus financing, etc...thx

    Lol, I KNOW! This drives me crazy about the Epson.
    Got the S80600 and I couldn't believe it that it didn't come with it. We replaced a Mimaki and the auto sheet cut was a must. But now you learn, and I heard some machines don't come with take-up reel. Now that would be insane.

    I'm in a bit different situation than probably others with the machine. I need to get about 1 more year out of it before I decide what I'm doing for personal reasons. I took a chance and purchased a new set of print heads which I'll install as needed and a set of ink which will also be installed as needed. Best I was able to tell was that there were no 3rd party print heads available (there will be a vacuum so maybe someone will fill it) and there is 3rd party inks (not sure of quality).

    My understanding is that the print heads are good for two years. When my ink runs out I'll buy 3rd party. It's a calculated risk because a purchase of print heads and inks is somewhere in the ball park of 10% of a new machine. If you find something please let us know.
