As I replied a few days ago the code is 5100. When might I expect a reply
Afraid it didn't work. When switched on the ink carriage moved across and back making a clicking/banging noise.
That didn't work. The printer head moved OK, but slightly stiff, put this down to the fact the machine was switched off. When I turned the machine back on the same noises were heard and the original message shown.
Yes it is still 5100
Ok, cleaned the plastic strip and repeated the last step. Still no good and the message remains 5100.
Oh dear, don't like the sound of your reply !!!!
Don't buy extended warranties and in any case it would be well outside that as I bought the machine on 4/8/10.
That means a new one I presume, with the loss of my stock of ink cartridges.
Thank you for your help. Will look for the printers mentioned, especially the MX870.
Sorry to bother you again. I don't have WiFi my computer runs on a USB. Will this make a difference as to which printer I pick. Don't want to buy one that isn't suitable.
Will have to go for an MG. Cannot see any MP's. on the web.
Take care and thanks for your very much appreciated help
