I have several of the 1520s, all broken in the very same way :-( My DPS-1101 which I have owned since new has a broken gear in its paper path - obviously the plastic gets more and more brittle during the years, so there will probably be more and more these issues with mechanic parts. I guess nowdays the reasonably priced 3D printers are not yet up to the task to make these kind of parts, but when I some day get to fix this machine the situation will probably be different. -Miika Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-11-24 13:00:31
