Question about Epson Stylus C42UX InkJet Printer
A plastic piece came loose inside my Epson C42UX. I was able to get it back together once before and get it working but now I can't remember if the piece had a spring attached to it or what. As you face the front of the printer the problem is on the right hand side in the area where the clear plastic ink tube attaches. There is another plastic piece that is attached with a spring in the back portion of the area. However, I can't seem to get this other plastic piece to fit. I can't remember whether it requires a spring or not. It appears to attach in the front portion of the area I'm referring to. Help.
The parking mechanism front spring has a tendency to come off in the C4x family of printers. Re-attaching it is a fiddly task not covered in the service manual. The pictures show: a general shot of the parking mechanism from the front; a shot of the actuation lever, illustrating where the front spring attaches to it; a view into the empty parking mechanism compartment showing where the lug is to which the bottom end of the front sprint attaches; a suggested tool for re-attaching the front spring, made from a large paper clip.
Proceed as follows, using a torch where necessary: lift the parking mechanism out its holder; be careful not to detach the drain pipe. Using the tool, attach one end of the spring to the lug at the bottom of the parking mechanism compartment. Remove the tool and leave the spring laying at the bottom with one end attached to the lug. Replace the parking mechanism in its holder, with the actuation lever in place. Now for the fiddly bit! Peer into the compartment to locate the free end of the spring and get the tool on it. Pull the spring until you can put the free end over the lug on the actuation lever. Remove the tool.
