just buy a complete new printerI just spent ~2.5 hours replacing all the mechanical parts of a printer that's been giving us issues for upwards of two weeks. It's presently doing first-setup things, but has given me the same error. "A print head error has occurred". I'm so angry with this stupid thing, inkjets suck. Now I have to order the brains of the printer, and hope they didn't send me a DOA mech assembly.
I've also been off since like Tuesday night so this is a hell of a way to come back, lots of shit to look at and zero energy for it atm
so that's basically what this mech kit I ordered was/is -- you take the old printer's motherboard, scanner/ADF, hard drive, and a couple of plastic panels. Everything else is new. But it still takes a while to get the few things you reuse from the old printer to the new one, which makes it super annoying when the new part is bad because now I have to do the whole job AGAIN. I don't think I can get HP to replace the printer because of how our service contract works.just buy a complete new printer
that looks an awful lot like a raspberry pi... which if it is ACTUALLY blows my fuse, because I've been trying to get one or two more for a while and everybody's sold out, IIRC there's like a supply shortage because of larger companies buying them up and causing them to be difficult for the little guy to purchase.
