I have an out of warranty HP 3520 All-in-one printer. I am receiving the 0xc19a0042 error message about a malfunction with print head. I have run all of the troubleshooting steps online and arrived at the "needs service." I would like to know:
1) How do I go about scheduling this?
2) What are the steps to get my printer repaired?
3) Can I get an estimated cost of the repair (since it is out of warranty)?
I am trying to decide whether to buy a new printer or get this one repaired and the website, while helpful for troubleshooting, has almost no information about the repair process. Any advice would be welcome.

Thank you @DavidSMP for your attempt to help. I had actually already filled out the contact form in my earlier troubleshooting, but I cannot call during their business hours. I will be honest, in 2017, it feels almost insulting for customer service to only be available during set business hours and only be available over the phone. The online troubleshooting guides are good, and the availability of people like you in the forums is awesome, but ultimately you can only guide me to a solution, not actually provide it.
After reading your post, and making double sure that I had already hit every step you listed, I dismantled the printer, found the printhead part number, and ordered a new one ($15). That took me about 15 minutes, and it will be here this weekend, so my problem should be solved.
Anyway, I appreciate your efforts, but I definitely feel that HP is behind the power curve on customer service.
