Yeah I know it is an old printer, but except for this it still works and we have a bunch of new ink cartridges for it. So, we found when printing, the blue ink was filling up the Carriage assembly tray and then leaking everywhere. The aftermath looked like a village of Smurfs were killed. A bit of disassembly of the Carriage assembly to remove the tubes, we found the rubber washers where the tubes connect to the printhead pin receiver (not sure how better to describe) were badly cracked. We can only guess the system under pressure squirts ink out through the cracks. It only started now because the printer was finally brought out of storage used for the first time in 6+months. Enough time for the rubber to dry/crack. See the part in the pictures. Does anyone know the part number for these or where I could get some?
