    iPF8100 Multi Sensor Location

    Quick question. Does the replacing the multi sensor on an iPF8100 require removing the entire carriage, or is there another way. I know it's located on the left side of the carriage, but I can't seem to identify how it can be removed. Thanks!

    i don't know which iPF this is, but it was very easy to remove:

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I removed most of the parts of the carriage unit to get access to the head PCB, but didn't see where that was connected. Did yours slide towards the back of the carriage on the left side? It's hard to tell from the picture.

    Honestly I don't remember. It took me no more than 5 minutes to unsnap it from the side of the carriage (while still on the rail). I don't think there were even any screws, just a few plastic snaps.

    Qualifier: this may not be similar to the plotter you're working on. I think mine was a IP-765, and I don't know if it's similar to yours. =^..^=

    Thanks for the info, it was actually helpful even though it did vary a bit in the 8100. When I looked harder for some way to remove the left side of the carriage, I was able to locate the cover screws. For anyone else's information, to remove the multi sensor in the iPF8100 there are four screws on the left side of the carriage. There are two that are hidden under the ink lines (which just need to be moved out of the way) and two on the left side of the carriage (which are marked 3 and 4). Don't remove the red screws. Then, disconnect the small cable and remove the cover. There is one final screw which holds on the multi sensor, which is near the bottom of the carriage. After that, it should pull right out.
