  • SC489 posted about a week ago that the ET-8550 prints were at least as good as prints from the Pro 100. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/67480451
  • When I researched this a few years ago, I ended up getting a Kyocera, it has been great. Prior to that I had a Brother monochrome laser, but didn't like the fact that a new drum cost more than the ...
  • Correct - a few things to note here. One is that in this thread I was sometimes mentioning the maximum voltage that a device is rated to. You of course want this to be higher than the actual power ...
  • Yes, if I didn't live half a world away I would love to pull that printer apart to find the problem. Here is a photo of the part of the last device failure I had that I successfully repaired, it ...
  • IMHO if the OP had changed the cable for the 2nd successful attempt, the OP would have realized the problem was the cable and wouldn't have posted here in the first place, so we can be reasonably ...
  • Hehe, now you are getting towards the limit of my knowledge for electronics, as I am an Accountant. However I did top my high school for physics (back in the 1980s) and I do occasionally fix ...
  • There are some very interesting aspects to your post. I guess the clarity of the original post depends on the knowledge of the reader. Your referring to a plug as 120V has me wondering if you think ...
  • For the record - I have never suggested the printer was happy with 220V. If you look at my first post on this topic you will see that I posted a link to an Epson web page which showed there were ...
  • Not checking that a device that was purchased in a 110 volt country was rated to accept the 230 volts used in the country moved to - it is as easy as reading the power label on the device. There ...
  • Please reread the OP's post, as there seems to be some confusion. The OP wasn't in the U.S. when the smoke came out. He had moved from the US to Europe, and used a European cable to plug his ...
  • Simple - he used a different cable. The socket is only different at the wall end, the socket in the printer itself is a "figure 8" one, regardless of what country it was purchased in or what it's ...
  • I notice on this page https://files.support.epson.com/docid/cpd5/cpd58636/source/pro_graphics/source/specifications/reference/scp700_900/spex_electrical_scp700_900.html that the P900 comes in both ...
  • The camera will be expecting it's photos to be in a particular place on the memory card, probably a subfolder of the DCIM folder. You will need to place the jpg in this folder. It may also require ...
  • Best to look at the actual power consumption of the particular printers, rather than assuming that piezos will naturally use less power than bubblejet technology. For example the Epson P700 (22W) ...
  • Your stories keep changing so much I can't keep up. Yesterday you were telling us that U..V. radiation wasn't an issue for you because the photos were only in places with dark tinted windows. ...
  • Australia has some of the highest levels of U.V. radiation in the World.
  • I suspect that some of A74Me's fading problems are due to the fact that he lives in Australia, where the conditions can be particularly harsh for photos. AUSTRALIA - Pretty much everything can kill you
  • One problem with resurrecting old posts is that things may have changed in the meantime. The TS9120 is long gone, unless you are looking at used ones. In many markets Canon no longer sells a 6 ink ...
  • Replied in Not downunder
    Just as well you were only 92% certain - Australia/New Zealand Canon models have a 6 as the identifier, so in these countries this printer has the model number IX6860. The IX6870 seems to be for ...
  • One issue with the G7020 is that it doesn't have a maintenance tank for the excess ink when doing head cleanings etc, instead it uses a pad and a counter. Once that counter determines that the pad ...
