The cable only has also been available for about a year now. $150 approxThe cable that failed for the other printer was sold one of two ways, in a kit with other cables (cheapest option) or with the entire ink chain and umbilical system. If you would like you can give me a call and I can go over this with you and order the part for you.
What is the issue?
I'm sorry to tell you but you got screwed. They probably just didn't know.Just 4 months ago HP support only had the cable as part of the kit or the umbilical. Maybe it is different in Europe.
