Print core 2 spring


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print core 2 spring

I was changing out the print core in position 2 to use breakaway material and noticed there is a coiled spring hanging down and in the way for installing the print core.  I'm not sure how to replace this spring in the proper position.  Picture included.  Thanks for any insights.

    Mine somehow looks a little different, but the spring is supposed to push the lifting switch down when the core is deployed. As far as I remember the spring isn't that strong (since the core itself is pressed down by its own spring), you should be able to push it back in place with some tweezers. If that doesn't work, you probably have to disassemble the printhead and get it back in place.
