We can’t say monkeyed around remember? It has been deemed rascist.
And if I am a racist? Just sayin.... LOL, then monkeyed around is acceptable for me?
Anyhoo. Printer problem solved.
I ordered a new one.
Yesra ago, when buying a new one, at Sams, the salesman sold me one of the cheaper models. He said, non of the "home" models lasts
for a long time and if you pay less then $100 for one and only get a year or two you are ahead of the game.
So I had bought one for about $85 and it lasted 3 years.
Then I replaced that with an HP that I paid $60.41 tax included for and it has lasted just shy of 2 years. That was from Amazon.
Amazon still has that one but it is now $99.99 plus tax. So I went searching and landed on Ebay.
I got the same model, new, for $46.99 plus $1 S/H and I sprung for a 3 year warranty thing for $4.99....
So... reasonable cause this model deos what I want.
Past 4 or 5 months I have been printng 300 to 400 pages a month.
This one had the HP instant ink feature, which I tried and love.
You pick your own level. Example I pick 300 pages a month and they charge 9.99 and send me ink for "free... if I go over it is $1.00 more per each hundred pages.... If I will not be printing so much I can cut the pages back.
300 to 400 had me buying XL ink about every 4 to 5 weeks at a minimum of $60 for both black and color..... This saves a ton.
Now....... if the new printer does not work... well it has to cause I could print nothing after all my scans and cleanups today.
