Question about HP DeskJet 970cse InkJet Printer
Part number T-360733. HELP! Is it possible that a replacement part might just be available for me to get this machine going again?

the PCA is held to the carriage /cradle by usually one or more screws. sometimes these loosen over time, so while the contacts on the PCA and the ink cartridge look ok, they're not actually making good contact. try removing the pca from the cradle, and reattaching it, making sure you torque the screws down firmly (but don't crack the board). sometimes a small washer or shim helps to get the board closer to the carts.
many times if you look along the top of the cradle/PCA assembly, you will notice that the gap between the board and the cradle is not uniform. this is usually a dead giveaway, and snugging up the screws will usually fix it.
also if you closely examine the cartridges, you may notice that the indentations or scratches on the contacts aren't uniform which may also point to a skewed PCA.

Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix. To replace the ink cartridge holder, you would have to dissasemble the whole Print head/Carriage assembly. The when you put it back together , there are timing factors to be set. With printers so inexpensive, I would opt for a new unit.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

If the spring did not damage the carriage flex I would suggest just using some epoxy to hold the spring properly in place. If the spring did damage the flex (as shown in this picture) then you might contact HP and enquire about an extended warranty for this issue. In the US call HP at 1-800-HPINVENt.
