    DF-701 cracked base frame

    I have a C284e with a document feeder that the hinge screws have busted out of the plastic, and the feeder now sticks up half an inch in the back. Usually I can fix this with oversize screws, but this one there appears to be nothing left for the screws to dig into. Aside from replacing the feeder entirely, is there some trick that I can try to fix this?

    Also, any idea of the best specs for oversize screws for this problem? Mine might just not be big enough.

    Ouch! That's a tough one. Not sure what else you can do. That feeder has a lot of movement and pressure from springs otherwise you could build up screw holes with some resin and drill new holes when dry. I don't think it would hold in this situation.

    I took a quick look at the similar DF624 and can't see any other way to modify. I'll look closer over the weekend and if any ideas I'll post them.
