My nephew needs a printer to do school work.
His Mom is looking for a really inexpensive deal on a used one.

Any working printers gathering dust around your home?

For the cost of ink jet cartridges now days, it may be more cost effective to get this Printer

This is a laser printer b/w only. I have one--not this model. It costs about 3 cents/page to print with a laser as opposed to 10-12 cents/page for ink jet. Although inkjet cartridges might seem cheaper, they cost more per page. This is a very reasonable price for a laser printer. It might only come with a "starter" cartridge though (not as many pages as a regular one). You could contact the company and find out.

I might have an HP Printer, thats brand new in the box, $30. I won't be able to give you the model info til later though. I didn't get to use it, as I won an Epson on the raffle.

I've used HP printers for years and have found them to be very reliable. However, mine have been laser.

dix99,
Thanks.
When you pass along the model number,
could you please advise if ink cartridges are included?

I happened to spot a deal on Amazon for a Brother compact Laser Printer, with Wireless Networking and Duplex printing. Less than $80 - about half of list price. Here's the link.

The model number is 'HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One-Printer', but unfortunately the ink has expired, so you will need to get some.

Chita, dix99:

The HP ink is more than likely fine as long as the cartridges have not been installed in the printer. I have used HP cartridges that were over 4 years old and they worked fine.

I did put them in to test it, but I get the message that they need replacing.

Brian, If I get some cheap generic ink for it, will it work, or will it know there cheap & not let me use them?

Chita, you can take it & try it out & just pay me if everything is OK.

HP inkjets are not like Epson & Canon which do not replace the print head when installing a new cartridge. Putting new ink in it should work just fine. The old/used ones may have dried out.

Costco sells and refills HP cartridges for a considerable savings. They may be able to salvage the older ones that you tested the printer with.

Much as I love Costco for most things, I've had bad luck with their inkjet refills, both Canon and HP. My HP Deskjet reported No Cartridge after installing one I had just gotten refilled there. A couple of Canon color cartridges had similar failures. While a black Canon cart worked OK, I'm not planning to refill there any more. In each instance, there was no problem with getting a refund.
