Hi,

On most Epson 9pin printers, common causes for a missing dot are:

  • print head, the coil has burned;
  • stuck pin, the print head is held by a single screw and connected by a single flat flex cable. It can be removed and cleaned with electrical contact cleaner and/or WD40;
  • transistor on the logic/controller board. There are two PCBs inside these printers; one for the PSU, the other (bigger) has several medium sized transistor. One row would have 9 of these, one or more would be open (not shorted, if it were shorted, the pin would be leaving a continuous vertical mark on the paper).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I AM HAVING PROBLEMS PRINTING, THE QUALITY IS VERY FAINT, i HAVE REPLACED THE INK AND CLEANED THE HEADS BUT STILL NO JOY,


1st See if it prints normal from a maintenance function such as clean printer cartridges. 2nd see if you need to update drivers and clean the cartridge electrical connections with a pencil eraser. 3rd Make sure all your print preferences are correct, did you put it in draft mode to save ink? 4th check trouble shooting in your users manual or contact Kodak. 5th Printers are cheap you can get an all-in-one wireless canon from Walmart for about $100. 6th enjoy your new printer.

Recyled ink isn't being recognized


Have you reset the Chip on the cartridges. What model you use--- a nine Pin or old seven Pin model. Nine Pin are difficult to reset, seven Pin are easy with a hardware Resetter. If Chip show empty cartridge, you can fill them two days, it will show empty-- reset the Chip!

Puzzle 100 in professor layton


This took me ages. Hope it not too hard to follow.
1st square is a small one made up of the top left four pins of the 1st and 2nd row,and is the only straight square on the board.
2nd square is made from 3rd pin top row connected to 5th pin 2nd row, then make a sq from here.
3rd square is made by connecting 4th pin top row to 3rd pin down on far right row, then make the largest sq from here.
4th square is made by connecting 5th pin top row to top pin in the far right row then make the sq from here.
5th square is made by connecting 3rd pin 2nd row to 2nd pin down far right row, then make the rest of the square from here.
6th square is made by connecting 3rd pin across on 3rd row to 4th pin across on 4th row, then make the rest of the square from here. Finally 7th square is made by connecting 1st pin 4th row to 1st pin 5th row, and make the rest of the square from here.
When I describe pins, I am talking about actual pins, not counting gaps where pin could be.
Hope this helps.

I have a intel 478 board an don`t know how to connect power poer led


The power led wires ( there are two) go onto the two pins on the top row of the front panel coonetcor block on the board, on the 1st and 2nd pins working from left to right.

The full connector block is wired as follows:

top row: left to right >>
1st& 2nd are Power LED, the 3rd & 4th are the power switch, the 5th is empty.
The bottom row: left to right >>
1st & 2nd are hdd light, the 3rd & 4th are the reset switch, the 5th pin has no connector to the pin
Note: the power led and hdd terminals are to produce a light when the pc is on and busy.If the lights do not show, turn off the pc, turn the connectors round 180deg, reconnect and turn back on again. Job done
