    Same problem. Only prints half the picture. Doesn't matter whether from PC or camera.

    The printer only prints half the photo and I see the split cam, but I'm having difficulty accessing the cam to make the repair.

  • bascochick Dec 22, 2008

    Printer prints the top half of the picture. Not sure where the cam is to fix or what I"m looking at when I look in the printer. Need more specific instructions. thanks

    What are you showing here in your pictures? if I succeed in taking apart my printer as you indicated, then what is the red circled area signify? What am I supposed to do? Thanks for your efforts, but I'm not following at all... if you can clarify further.

    If the little white piece is stuck up, push it down.

    The little white piece in the red circle was cracked and would rotate on the metal bar. Rotate the white piece so that it is touching the metal frame below it. Like the larger white piece at the other end of the rod. Then super glue it in place.

    When the metal bar rotates the white piece in the red circle should press down the spring loaded piece underneath. The larger white piece on the other end of the rod pushes down on the same spring loaded piece on that end. The spring loaded part must be pressed down against the paper for it to print.

    super glue it to the rod. NOT the piece below it.

If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.
