extracted hairs off dx3850

This is an Epson DX3850 printer that’s in need of a major service, as you can see the ink head wiper blade is encrusted in sticky ink and hair, wasn’t sure what hair but the next photo gives you a clue.

This PC came into the shop today and was reported to be crashing all the time, maybe has viruses. so I did as I do to every PC or laptop that comes into the shop I took the side off and checked for dust lol. It really should be the first thing a computer engineer looks for as this is a basic thing that can stop your PC / Laptop working correctly and can even kill the CPU.

This dust settled onto the blades of the heatsink to form a think lint stickly mat, which was nearlt total blocking the heatsink, causing the CPU to overheat and crash the computer.

A Simple clean up operation leaving the heatsink in good condition and able to cool the CPU again.

Now the PC can work to its max without crashing :)
