Question about Olympus Camedia P-10 Thermal Photo Printer
I have 2 P-10 printers purchased at the same time and at about the same time, they both started having ribbon jamming issues.
Recently, I purchased 4 100 shhet packs 4x from B&H Photo for a job. On the 4th print through, the printers jammed up and the ribbon was wrapped around a roller. I have to cut the ribbon and carefully pull that ribbon from around the roller off. Now on my 4th attempt and $160 later, it still was happening. Now I have 4 busted ribbon cartridges and 300 sheets of unused paper.
I sent the printers back to Olympus and they told me that it was the motherboard. It would cost me $110 a piece to bring them back to factory condition.
I found 2 new unused P-10's on Ebay for $40 each.
Where can I find motherboards for these printers so I can replace them myself?
And by the way, I had a tough time getting Olympus to refund me the loss of materials but they did send me 3 out of the 4 boxes in good faith.
