Epson R3880 Major Surgery


For the past 24 hours I have been performing major surgery on my Epson R3880 printer, all the way down to removing the logic board to try try and fix my error once and for all.

Once all the required adjustments according to the service manual have been performed, I will be ready for a test print.

An update will be posted at 9pm

This has been an ongoing problem for over a month now, I was ready to throw it it the dustbin but just could not bring myself to do it so I thought I would have one final attempt.

Ian, why not invest in a new printer!

Simple... Fine art photographers don't earn enough money

Re: Epson R3880 Major Surgery


The printer is fully repaired now

I dissected the old PK - MK valve from the ink delivery system and it was clear that the seal in the PK Cavity was indeed leaking.
