Question about Minolta EP1030/1030F CS/PRO Copier
It's not very difficult. CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE TO LAMP! ***BE SURE TO UNPLUG MACHINE BEFORE ATTEMPTING REMOVAL!
1. Remove 2 silver screws on plate that aligns your original -on left side of glass. (note: if ADF on machine, there will be two small springs under this plate, be careful to keep springs when you remove the plate) 2. Carefully remove glass by lifting slightly and sliding to the front. 3. Grasp carriage with lamp and pull to the right.
4. The lamp is held by tension between two silver lamp terminals. You can press (hard) on the rear terminal toward the back of the machine and the lamp will release and drop onto the reflector. Or, if this is difficult, remove the screw(s) on the black plastic housing that holds the silver lamp terminals. Once loose,
slide the lamp to the rear until you can lift the front up and out.
5. To replace the lamp, USE CAUTION NOT TO TOUCH THE NEW LAMP WITH YOUR BARE HANDS! The oils from your hand can cause problems later. Use rubber gloves or wrap a paper towel around the lamp when handling. Slide the lamp all the way into the rear hole until you can get the front of the lamp into it's hole. Then, maneuver the lamp onto the front terminal
while pressing the rear terminal until it's wide enough to accept the lamp. (or, if you removed the black housing, catch the lamp socket with the terminal then pull the housing toward you until it seats into position where you can reinstall the screws). 6. Replace the glass being careful to get the right side under the two metal spring clips. 7. Reinstall the original stop plate located left of the glass with the two silver screws (and the springs if ADF is attached). 8. Plug it back in, turn it on and away you go.
