|HP-97 Printer Head|
Message #1 Posted by aj04062 on 10 Sept 2013, 9:19 p.m.
I have a HP-97 that had a printer head failure. It has clearly overheated and burnt out. The plastic holder and rest pad are slightly melted, but usable, I think.
I have a new head. However, I am concerned about the failure mode of the prior head. Do you know how this would have happened? I don't want to install a new had just to see it burn out as well.
Could it have occurred if someone tried to print without paper?
I looked at the service manual on the DVD set, but nothing jumped out at me regarding this kind of failure.
