If it is an hp, use a bit of sellotape or better still electrical tape to seal the cartridges. Other than that i can only agrre with Diodorus Siculus, print a test page off every week in draft mode to keep the printhead in condition
nah its an epson, and i cant print off a test page every now and then because i dont have room in my room to fit the printer in anymore. Is there no way i can just keep the thing in a cupboard for a few years?
Take the print cartridges out ( throw away) take a chance it works in a few years. Prices seem to be dropping all the time . When It comes time for a replacement , you will pick up something that might surprize all of us. Or give /flog printer now, save cupboard space!
I have an epson that I didn't use 4 a couple of months and the print heads started to get blocked in that space of time so shouldn't think it i'll survive being stored sell it and get a new one when u get 2 uni thats what i'd do
