    Our company recently upgraded to a new printer after our L25500 had an issue with the ink tubes leading into the Carriage leaking Cyan ink. I believe its a busted Tower where the print head goes over.

    Fortunately we were able to buy the OEM Service Maintenance Kit One (CH956-67024) which includes: the Scan-axis motor, encoder strip and sensor, ink tubes assembly, trailing cable, belt and tension kit, carriage, line sensor, carriage PCA cover, and paper jam sensor.

    It's been sitting for roughly a year, I myself tried to fix it without using any of the Maintenance Kit One parts, which still sits in the box when we ordered it. We ended up getting our new printer and just haven't had time to replace the tube system and other parts.

    It DOES NOT PRINT at the moment. Just want that to be clear. It needs the new parts installed.

    We are looking to sell the printer as a whole with the kit or maybe part it out.

    Wanted to see if anyone on here has any suggestions or ideas.

    I appreciate your time,
    Thank you!

    Might be best to use the main board for a rebate on a new printer.

    with the end of life announced and no solid companies making ink you may have a boat anchor in a few months. i would part it out if you can but theres not too many left in the field as far as i know. using sites like this you can probably find a few people to get rid of some of that. but id be willing to venture that itll be taking up space in your shop for a while.

    +1 that printer is dead in the water. dreading my 26500 being next on the chopping block.
    print heads, ink sets, maintenance kits, service parts.... soon to be nonexistent.

    We sold ours as soon as they announced end of life.
    You probably have left your run a bit late for selling it.
    Someone may take it off your hands for free though.

    Grimco has taken our old machines(mainly the board) as trade in. Even picked up* our old machines so we didn't have to mess with it!

    *may not be available for everyone

    None but manufacturers stop producing those items after an End of Life is announced. HP EOLd the 25500, 65500, and other latex machines this year meaning no parts, ink, or consumables are available first part for these.

    I wish I had had the energy for that, I just pulled any parts that might be useful on the 360 series and threw it in the trash.

    Pinch rollers. I wanted to pull the feed and take up motors but gave up and went back to doing my job.

    I'd like to know if there's a generic print head cleaning/wiping cartdidge- the roll of paper one it parks on, when you switch it off.
    We still have 30 of the L260 ink cartridges, so I'd like to get them used up... !

    (and about a dozen L25500 ink cartridges & a few heads, too)

    Where are you from?
    I'll part with the 25500 inks and heads- but I'm still using the 260s.

    Hi, I got your message. I'll reply properly by email with the age and colours; but I had a quick look and for the L25500, there are
    10 unused, unopened, 789 cartridges of varying dates, mostly 2017,
    and 6 heads, unopened, unused, dated mostly 2017, and 2018.
    Plus we have 7 partly full cartridges in the machine., and another 25500 spare machine also, if you needed parts, eg the hard drive or motherboard etc.

    We are in Australia, so postage might cost a bit. I'll have to work it out tomorrow, and I can photograph them for you.

    I'm getting ready to round file my L25500 that has been taking up space in the shop. If there are parts anyone needs or ink and heads please let me know. It would be nice to recoup some of the cost of the ink on the shelf.
