Hi All,

A neighbour has an Alp MD4000 printer that has run out of the colour 'cyan'. Its not a cartridge but a colour tape that is needed.

He can't remember exactly who he bought it from but I thought it was bundled with his PC he bought from PCWorld.

He phoned them and was told they had never sold the printer.

I've searched google and had no luck I can only find USA sites.

Does anyone know where we can purchase the tapes for this pc?

Many thanks,

but how about trying the vendors that advertise in the rear section of the mag. Most of them have a web site.

Contact JIP Solutions Ltd.,c/o Sykes, D1 Industrial Estate, Shannon, Co. Clare, Ireland. Telephone (Freephone) 0800-973405.

Trust this will answer your friend's need. It was two years ago that I ordered ribbons from them. Have since parted with my Alps - it was a very good printer/scanner, but VERY expensive to run.

If the above suggestion proves negative, look in Google, there are dozens of suppliers listed.

Thanks all,

Goral, according to my neighbour he has been given the phone number you have but they will only supply a 'set of 4' colours.

He says he cannot afford the cost of this.

I have looked on Google but most of the suppliers are USA based...but I have found one at:

click here

they have Citizen and Oki ribbons that they claim will fit Alps printers.

Thanks for all of your help,
