Question about Epson Stylus Pro 9600 InkJet Printer
As i was removing light magenta, the little connector pins that actually read the chip on the ink cart have some how got ca\ught and pinged out now cant use the printer as it cant read chip. have i done some serious damage or can i some how trick it back into life.any help id be grateful for cheers
I know how to fix this. This part is identical in many, many Epson models and I have lots this part. I call it the "pinset" and what it does is make contact to the chip on one side, and on a small board on the other to make the contact. The thing is, that you have to very carefully remove and insert this part and I have devised an excellent method of doing this during my several years of working with Epson printers, without taking the cartridge reciever apart as an authorized Epson tech would do. In fact, this happened recently to my Photo black slot and I fixed it in 10 minutes. It happens when someone tries to put a cartridge in with no chip on it. Putting it in is fine, but the spring loaded contacts get caught in the void where the chip is supposed to be and when you pull the cartridge out, it bends the hell out of the pinset. They are not repairable. I would not mind helping both of you... but I need something too. I have a 9600 PHOTO DYE model (T545* carts) and I either need a set of cartridges or a set of chips that I can reset. Empty, used, I don't care as long as the chip is intact and can be reset. You see, I have several bags of ink from a different model that I can change out inside the cartridges, but I don't have the right chips! Can you help me? I could send you as many pinsets as you need. I can definitely help you but I would rather arrange a meeting on the phone to walk you through it (both of you) since its a bit tricky without taking the printer apart.
Contact me and I'll privately give you my phone number.
