JV3-160SP Firewire Board Problem.How To Repair !!!
Hi at hall !
I' am a new user of this group but I am an old user of Mimaki's Product.
I have read this topic on this board : http://www.signweb.com/forum/digital-sign-printing/mimaki-jv3-160sp-shu…
in the last entries the user Gregory Daerr make a solution on firewire board.
I have a JV3-160Sp , made in year 2007.
After 2 years of works actually i have a big problem with this printer.
This is my model of printer http://i33.tinypic.com/17pl4x.jpg JV3-160SP
From one month during the job the printer fault and stop the work approximately at 60%.
On the LCD display appear this error code : ERROR 23 COMP I/F 20 See the image of error at this link http://i34.tinypic.com/262ryg5.jpg
Whit a research by google i find that this error probably is a FireWire Board Damaged and most probably are the capacitators on the board.
At the moment i have opened the printer and i leaved the firewire board, actually the JV3 work in LPT mode, but is very slowly. The my original board is this : E400431-2 if you click you see the picture of my board. http://i33.tinypic.com/wqr0pi.jpg
I have many question for the expert users of this group :
I have idea to change the capacitators on board with same but new :
The value printing of 19 capacitators are this :
Sincerely i find in most shop , like on line shop , but it' impossible to buy this component ,I Live in Italy.
Somebody have an Idea for buy this capacitators?
For your personal experience if I change this capacitators if possible to resolve my problem ?
Another question is :
In this photo I Have evidence with a number some component on the board :
SEE THIS PHOTO http://i37.tinypic.com/9a3a8p.jpg
At Number 1 in green on the left is indicated a switch
Where is the real function of thi switch ?
At Number 2 in green on the center is indicated a multiple dip-switch positioned all on off :
Where is the real function of this dip switch and where is the correct configuration for the best performance ?
At Number 3 in green on the center near the dip switch is indicated an open jumper :
Where is the funcion of this Jumper ?
It's possible to found on line a complete instructions of this firewire board (dedicated manuals or a summary pdf)?
I find on line a shop for spare parts of mimaki but i don't undestand if is original part or compatible.
Anyone Know A good european shop to buy this Firewire whit a warranty policy ?
