Buying a New or Used Printer? Advice needed.
Hi all. Im having a bit of a time of it at the moment as we all do from time to time.
So yesterday i got a head heat error on my mutoh, which ive never had before and it seems its mr darkness is coming down to claim another victim. Having spent a few hours scrolling the net it didnt look like good news, motherboards or head. I phoned the engineer for his opinion and his answer was 9 out of 10 head is gone = printer is gone as its old and worthless. i suggested changing the head cable which he thought was pointless. Anyway i stripped it down and gave the cable a clean and… shes alive. Now this might just be coincidence or the cable was the issue. Either way i feel like im on borrowed time and at a crossroads.
Now yesterday i set up an action plan all of which are a kick in the goolies.
The mutoh suppliers offered me a used machine with recently fitted low use head, setup etc etc for 35% of a new machine.
Then we have a new machine which is a big chunk of wedge.
Now my thoughts on the new option like everything is theres no guarantees your trouble free, things can always happen and the deeper your into it the less choices you have.
My printer i have now i paid just 2500k including few sets of inks and onyx. 4.5 yrs later here i am which doesnt financially feel like a huge loss.
