Both the HP-19C and its non-printing version, the HP-29C,
were introduced in 1977-7-1, at $345 and $195 respectively,
so the lack of a printer resulted in the non-printing model costing 44% less.
However, the 19C did include other benefits, printer-related but quite independent of it working, such as larger size, better keyboard, and more capable batteries, and all of them keep on improving the machine whether the printer itself works or not, so I guess that a 33%-40% refund would be Ok.
If the seller doesn't agree and you like this particular machine very much, I would even go for a mere 25% refund, but not a cent less.
