I promised, I wouldn’t go home without a good printer. I brought my Epson to the shop for ink conversion but then again, “general error” appeared. I was advised to have my unit l be referred to their technical support. It will take them a week or two because they will still request for my unit to be pulled out.
Initial diagnosis, the board needs to be repaired.
Estimated repair plus ink conversion would cost me P5,800 more or less $135, and that’s the total package. Gosh, that offer was ridiculous! I gave up. I walked away and looked for the cheapest one.
“General Error” is a common error for Epson and most likely the same problem will happen over and over again even if it gets done.
This is what I got.
Went home with new Converted Canon iP2770 at P3,500. All in! Nice deal! At least I can now sleep better. With now continuous ink, next bottle would only cost me P80, less than $2.
