Free Printers - please read below first though!

Carol Winters from Age Concern Havelock North

Bit of a story and not an advertisement for bad printers by any stretch of the imagination!
Printer 1 - HP smart tank 571, stopped working with a cartridge fault, HP replaced this with printer 2 smart tank 655. Printer 2 - couldn't get working, this time an error stating that 2 of the colours hadn't been filled which was incorrect.
This was replaced again by HP with Printer 3 which works brilliantly. So I'm loathe to take these to the dump as printer number one is fairly new and about 85% full of toner and printer number two is brand new and full of toner.
If there are any really smart people who know how to fix these things and want both of them, please let me know and they're yours. Email me on: info@ageconcernhb.org.nz or leave a message here.

Sign up here.

If there's an element of Stuff's operations you'd like the inside scoop on, email Patrick with suggestions here.
