What to do with an IR sensor from an Epson inkjet cartridge? Answered

My Epson Workforce printer has ink cartridges that seem to contain an IR sensor.  It's part of the ink level sensor, I think.  It's on a tiny board the size of a fingernail.  Can anything cool or useful be done with this?

My Epson Stylus Photo 900 printer won't recognize a refilled black ink cartridge. Does anyone know how to fix this? Answered

I put more ink into the black cartridge when it got low with a refill kit. The printer won't work and keeps flashing "black cartridge needs replacing" ! Is there a secret step I must do? The new cartridges have a thin film over the bottom ink hole, so I tried scotch taping it to simulate a new cartridge but that did not work! Help please !

How can I get rid of the watercolor-paper texture when I scan a painting on my Epson Perfection scanner?

I used to have an Arcus II scanner and I don't remember the texture of the paper being so visible. Sometimes my illustrations fade to white on the border but the paper is still obvious. Thanks in advance. Garison W.

Would like to confirm current rating of a stepper motor

I took of it off Epson printer/scanner (CX5200). It's rated at 42VDC (which seems really high) and 26 Ohm. I used formula I=V/R and got 1.6 Amps, which seems awfully big current for this tiny bipolar stepper motor (it moves scanner head). Am I correct with calculations or missing something?

Portable Storage Drive

I have a Nikon D200 Digital SLR that uses a CompactFlash (Type I/II) MicroDrive and when I'm in the field I take lots of high resolution images that takes a long time to download through the USB port of a laptop. I would like to be able to just carry a self-contained portable hard drive (i.e. 2.5" hard drive in an enclosure) with it's own battery source and just be able to insert the MicroDrive to a card reader connected to the enclosure and download all the images of the MicroDrive without the use of a laptop. A commercial version already exist but they are very pricey like the Epson P-2000. Basically I want the same functionality of the Epson P-2000 but I want the option to use whatever size drive I choose. How much battery would I need to power a hard drive? Would I have to use some sort of circuitry to transfer the images from the MicroDrive to the hard drive with a push of a button? Does anybody already have any instructions on how to build this?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

How do you clean dried printer heads on a fairly new printer?

So I have an EPSON Stylus CX 5400 that will not print a darn thing. After test printing, running the "clean heads" function, and doing head alignment repeatedly, I called EPSON with my frustrated bafflement. To which they replied that my printer heads must have dried out, therefore the printer is shot, and they would be happy to sell me a new one. Which I think is nonsense - There's got to be a way to clean out dried printer heads, right? Or is this wishful thinking? I opened it up, but being the non geek I am have not figured out what the heck printer heads look like, and can't figure out how to remove the component where they must be. Is cleaning out dried up printer heads a pipe dream, or can someone tell me how to do this for this type of printer? I just hate to think of trashing a huge piece of electronics, and I would rather not buy a new printer. Thanks

I need instructable images that I "Save-As" to go into Pictures Folder, NOT Download Folder by default

PC Question: Just recently, every image I "Save-As" goes into my Download Folder by default unless I manually redirect it to my Pictures Folder. Then the next image I "Save-As" goes into my Download Folder again. I want all images to go into my Pictures Folder. What am I does wrong? Could a piece of software from my Epson printer be causing this. Thanks for helping!

high-powered op-amp standalone amplifier

I've been having trouble finding examples (on instructables or through google) of using a high-powered op-amp as a standalone amplifier, like the 2x10 watt or higher ones available at TI and such. Yeah, there's always the datasheet applications section, but those will only get you so far, there's always little electrical quirks and anomalies to account for that may not be obvious to me (as an undergraduate computer engineering major). If anyone could point me toward an article or two, or even better, an instructable, I'd be very grateful. Thanks. p.s. is that Epson ad crashing anyone else's firefox?
