The main question would be the condition of the wet parts, especially the head and has the machine been under RolandCare for this time and has it been manually cleaned regularly, also check that communication is working correctly, I have seen a few with damaged mainboards doing the rounds recently, this usually menas that the head is out of action as well.

Get a test print and a print sample and see it printing.

Price wise it will vary on condition.

A new machine retails for £4,999.00
