Should I fix my existing Epson printer of should I invest in a knew one?

Question

I currently have an Epson Stylus C80. I have had continuous printing problems with this printer since I purchased it on 1/14/2002. The jobs will go and print fine, but the print I can not read it. I have done several Head Cleanings and the problems get worse. I called Epson and they said that I need to shut off my printer every night, which I started doing, but he problem is back again. Is it worth getting the printer fixed or should I buy another printer? If I should purchase another printer, which brand/model would you suggest. I need a color printer and I print about 100 pages per week.

Thanks!

What I would do is first try to replace the ink cartirdges, if the problem still exists than you might want to invest in a new printer You say you print about a 100 pages a week, well it might be wise to invest in a color laser printer, they are a little pricey but well worth it if you print alot of pages Try NEC or eve Epson, they usually make really good printers.
