Question about Epson Stylus C42UX InkJet Printer

My printer is demanding to be serviced and refusing to work....honestly, it'll be contacting its union next I expect. Is there any way round this or does it really need to be serviced in which case would it be cheaper and easier to just buy a new printer???

Where can i send back western union instrument. I already cacelled service.

No offense intended, but I am not sure what a western union instrument is. You need to contact whoever provided it to you. I put a link to Western Union's web site in the United States.

FIXYA is a free internet web site that answers questions. It is not a bank or retail service.

I have just over 60000 mile on my 02 Yukon Denali and my "engine service soon" just came on. Should I take it to the gmc dealer or my nearest Union 76 gas station who has mechanics that can work on cars...

service engine soon is a driver/owner reminder, check your engine oil or rest it after changing to 100%, if you have the owners guide book, read it and follow the maintenance procedure to avoid severe damage to your car
