R3000 ink cartridge cover switch is broken!

R3000 ink cartridge cover switch is broken! I can’t jam the little plastic piece meant to fool the cover closed switch to work anymore - even when I add a piece of heavy paper to it. The switch itself seems to be broken on the inside. Any suggestions how to fix it ? Printer won’t work till I fix this issue… Thanks.

EPSON sells parts for its printers directly to consumers through Compass Micro. However, this printer was discontinued more than seven years ago and they may not have the parts you need. If you call them, ask if it is the same part as used in the P600 which replaced the R3000.

kind regards,


Thank you so much.
Hopefully it’s a common part as it would be a shame to trash this printer for lack of one little switch.
