    • L7580 has a lot of DC motors inside. Detach the ink cartridge slots by removing the screws to discover another DC one.

    Agregar Comentario

    • This is the ink cartridge pumping mechanism. The last DC motor we detached controls this mechanism.

    • The opto switch reports the mechanism's position.

    • Communication between the board and cartridges is being established by serial data line as I guess.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Then, we see here the print head cleaning mechanism.

    • The master print head (which includes two removable heads) has a circuit board inside.

    • And this is the paper type detector. It has been compacted a bit when comparing to previous versions.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Reaching to the bottom layer, this is the paper feeding mechanism.

    • By removing the top cover, we discover the sixth and the last DC motor with an encoder.

Great job ! Would be nice to also have a repair counterpart as these things are impossible to replace parts with out knowing the tricks. Thank again.

If you only need to remove the scanner window and don't want to go through the hassle of dissembling the ADF:

1. Remove the seven T8 screws around the scanner window and the two behind the control panel.

2. Lift up on the front of the window assembly to loosen it

3. Close the scanner cover/ADF.

4. Lift the scanner window assembly from the front up and back, being careful of the cable running to the ADF at the back right

If you try to open the window assembly with the cover/ADF open, it will bind at the back as the hinge is a single piece that's difficult to take apart.

Hi Eric

Nice teardown. I have been hoping to find a diagram to see how the gear systems interact. My unit picks paper and pushes it to the rear rollers but the rollers are not turning. They spin freely and I think that is odd unless there is a clutch or a broken gear. Hence my looking for a diagram. Do you know how these rollers are fed? Do they have their own motor??

Thanks for any comment
