Dave and I worked on the ZCorp some more today and noticed a funny looking chip. One of the chips (presumably for driving the inkjet head) had let out its magic smoke (which would explain why it hasn't printed anything yet). Naturally it had to be a weird, old, no longer manufactured chip (UDN2878W). Luckily Dave found a HK seller on ebay who still had some and ordered some replacements.

Ah! (should of read here before submitting an order to E-Bay) Well I just order two new sealed BC-20 cartridges so we will have a couple of more we con convert if that one gives up. Hopefully that replacement chip will be the fix!

Once we start printing, we'll definitely need some more. These cartridges have a rough and short life.

Hi guys
I've been having the same problem with the cartridge (BC-20 Canon).
The Z Corp 402 machine that we have in the laboratory was not working for approximate 1 year and the binder clogged.

After cleaned the pipes, the cartridge showed failure during the printing, so I bought another and did the adaptation (as show the pictures).

But it still don't work. I did it with a used and a new cartridge and the binder don't flush....

please, do you know how it can function? my deadline is almost ending....

Tks

Ps: Sorry about my english, i Don't practice a lot.!!!! hehehe

Hi there,
I don't know what could be wrong with yours, we still haven't gotten ours to work.
If your binder isn't flushing, you may need to take apart the binder pump to clean out the old fluid and the o-ring may need replacing. Also check that binder hasn't hardened inside the solenoid valves that are next to the binder pump.

Tonight during open lab we worked on the zcorp a little bit. We mainly flushed the pump on the lower right when facing the back. The upper pump seemed fine the last time we were here. I found a post on some printing issues that seemed similar to what was occurring on this one. Here it is http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/z ... essage/402 . The solution was to simply replace all of the chips on the board. It looks like someone is headed in that direction since the board is disassembled in the printer and it looks there are new chips as well.

Yes, Dave and I were in the middle of replacing all the chips, but someone took the board to do some reverse engineering or something like. Everything else seems to work on the printer, so once the board makes its way back to the printer, we'll replace the remaining chips and give it another try.

Board it in the top section of the printer in an anti-static bag. It was returned last week during hack night.

Hey guys,

First of all, thank you for being so patient and enthusiastic about getting this thing working. It'll will certainly be fun to use once it is up and running. This thing was donated to Reuseum Ed. under the impression that it had been functional, and many headaches have resulted from it.

I do feel the need to stress that keeping a tight line of communication on what is going on with equipment undergoing maintenance is imperative. That being said, I will set a sign on it to be concerned with the state of its maintenance, and it can carry a log of people working on it, and what they are doing. We should find the time to meet sometime soon for all of those who would like to be a part of our team to get this thing up and running. If anyone would like to join in on this and commit, expectations will be held that they are the ones to ask first regarding tasks necessary for work on the machine. For now, please contact me first before working on the Z-Corp, and we'll build interested team members from there.

This Saturday is RobotLab, any and all willing tinkers who would like to get their hands powdery are encourage to meet up then and discuss, and we'll keep this thread very alive with tales of our trials and tribulations.

Thanks!
David

So, thanks all for recollecting the parts at the space for the printer, we've got everything installed again.

Next step is to clean the pumps and valves again. Taking notes on this in order to stop binder doing its binding in the machine will help so we can figure out a purging cycle when we suspect the machine might not be used for a couple days in the future.

Anyone interested in meeting up to talk about this at the next RobotLab on Sept. 7th 10am ?
