Printer Head connector pin issues

Just had an issue reconnecting the male connector to the female connection point on the printer head.

One of the pins inside the female bent. I was able to bend it back in place and reconnect without issue that I can tell. Just want to know if this pin happens to bend again to a point I cannot move it back or to a point its beyond repair what would need to be done?

Unless you’re technically inclined you would probably need to replace the printer head. I see there is a separation point where the PCB that has the pin socket on it is sandwiched between the head sections, suggesting the PCB could be replaced. I haven’t eviscerated mine to that level yet, so that’s just speculation.

I take particular care connecting that cable squarely. Some people don’t disconnect it at all, the ribbon cable has enough length that you can do any maintenance without disconnecting it.


Thanks for the insight. This is definitely the last time I disconnect that printer head!
