I, too, have had the same problem that MANY other users in the HP community are having. My question is this: Of course, I've had my printer just long enough that the warranty is gone. This was a very expensive printer for me to purchase. I've been a fan of HP for a number of years, but this has pushed me over the edge. When I learned what the problem was and how foolish it was to have engineered it this way, I became more frustrated.
IS HP GOING TO DO ANYTHING TO ITS CUSTOMERS AND MAKE THIS RIGHT? A recall is needed at a minimum, but I would certainly hope that HP would pay to have this problem fixed on our printers.
