ipf8400 roll holder repair- parts
« on: May 26, 2018, 12:29:51 PM »

Yup, dumb.
The roll holder for my ipf8400 fell over- and shattered the small plastic feed gear on the far left of the holder. 
It slides off after removing a small c-clamp, so it is made to be replaceable. 
I have "cobbled" it back together with some glue- so good for the short term.
I have been unable to find a source on line that actually carries parts.  I would prefer not to buy a whole new roll holder.
I just need the little white plastic gear. 
Any ideas of a source for small repair parts?
Thanks

Well, found the part number.

Out of stock everywhere I can find.
Canon usa closed for the holiday- sure hope they have it in stock.
If anyone has other sources please let me know
thanks

Does anyone actually sell parts to an end user?
Called Canon usa.  Have the part, but can not sell it to me.  Only sell to businesses.
They told me to call my dealer.
I called my dealer- DTG tampa.  I was told they could not sell parts, nor could they find it in their parts list.
I called Canon usa back, and was directed to Canon Solution America.  They can only sell to businesses. 
AHHH
This is a $3 part that I can install on my media holder in one minute- all of removing a c clamp and putting it back on.  But I can not find anyone that will sell me the part.
I have a show coming up in 2 weeks, and need to get printing.  I hate to buy a $160 media holder for a $3 part. 
Any ideas?  I could use some help here.
Thanks

Found it - I think.
Precisionroller.com
Out of stock, but they think they can order them.
Hopefully done

I have 2 ipf rollers. That gear on one of mine got damaged as well, but still works. Thought about using the good one as a model to make a file to 3D print another one. But I had found precisionroller as well and will probably order from there.
