Leitz Icon printer – No Cartridge Loaded

   Posted by: RobPatton   in Fixing broken stuff, Tech

I have a love and hate relationship with this printer, this is my second, the first just stopped working, and they sent me a new one.  Its been pretty good, till today when it gave me the dreaded “No Cartridge Loaded” error message. This time I decided it was getting fixed, or hitting the trash.  Here is what I found.

Easy open. the sides pop off, 10 screws

 

Then I noticed the little pc board that connects to a chip in the cartridge was just floating around in the box

Pushed it back to its place, added some hot melt glue to hold it in, and reassembled.

 

 

 

Boom! Fixed, and back printing. Saved from the recycle bin.  Hope this helps someone else…
