My new toy

Our beloved HP PSC 2350 died on Wednesday.  It was with us for over eight years and only started causing problems since the New year.  

I installed a brand new HP deskjet 1510 yesterday evening, all by myself, except I couldn’t work out where the downloads were disappearing to.  Rob showed me, I must look and see how many other lost downloads are lurking there since I had this computer in 2011.

The new machine scans really quickly which is just what I need for eBay.  I’ve also written to my Mum and Olivier to check how it prints and that is fine too.  I’m so glad I haven’t had to learn how to do things differently, it’s the same and in the places where it is different, it’s easier.

I seem to have a personal curse on me where scanners and printers are concerned. To this day I have not printed out a decent photograph, not that I have tried more than a few times, and now after spending a fortune on inks the prints are worse than ever and next t useless.

I am verging on jealous that you have had a piece of modern technology which has lasted so long...

I was surprised to see that the paper is no longer fed from the front on the 1510. I always thought that was a nice feature on HP printers.

I'm a great fan of HP, though I've yet to buy two that use the same ink cartridges. I guess that with your talents you can easily flog the old ones on eBay!

Caroline: We've never tried to print photographs. I think the main printing has revolved around student children printing out documents and papers.

Angela: Thank you for visiting. Yes, it is strange to see the paper at the back. If I forget to open up the front exit before printing it reminds me. The old unused cartridges will go to our favourite charity shop. As it happens there is only one.
