While “green IT” is in everbody’s mouth, often manufacturers do not act according to it.
After a colleague had fixed my DVD player some time ago with a part worth 0,05 EUR, now my HP printer refused working with an “ink system failure”.
There is a FAQ on the HP site about that error, but if it fails the printer would have to be maintained by HP.
Well, due to being a few days older than 2 years, that equals total wreckage. D’oh!
But now I found a website specific to printer problems: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com
Guess what: It worked and the printer returned to life now!
