Default Inherited Two Epson F2000 worth fixing

I have two Epson F2000 that I inherited from a family member. The machines were running in May, but have been sitting. The machines look filthy on the inside. What can I clean with. I purchased all the kits that would usually come with the printers. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME, ARE THEY WORTH FIXING?

You have to turn it on first to see if it even powers up, once it does, run a nozzle check, it will tell you the condition of the print head, if all nozzle are firing fine and not broken then you are good, all you need is to buy the maintenance kit around $100 and new set of inks. Good luck!

Mine is still running, barely. I was quoted just under $7000 for a new head, pump and head cap assembly. Installed.

$500 for a 20 minute drive! LOL!!!

I can buy a brand new one for under $14,000.

Do the math. I’m about ready to throw mine away next garbage nite.

It's easy to replace those parts. I've done it myself. The maintenance assembly and duct are less than $300 each from dtg mart. Hit up Vincent Herrera.

I turned on the printers and codes came up on both printers. I did nozzle checks and nothing printed. I called Epson and gave then the codes and I will attach the quote I recieved. Are these parts worth fixing myself? The first picture is let's call Printer A. A needs a Tube assembly and CR Scale. Printer B (second printer) needs ink holder assay, buffer assy, CR scale, and tube assy.

What im worried about is once they replace all that parts they will come back to replacing the print head and it's more than $2,000 from them.
