Checking out the CN642A


The CN642A seems to be a viable head for 3D printing. It comes with 5 colors, has CISS retrofits and still seems to use the matrx-to-mosfet connectivity that we know from older HP heads. Here's some information I found:

  • Printers: PhotoSmart: C309a,g,n, C310a, C310a,b (Premium), C410a,f (Premium / Fax), C510a (Estation) / D5400 Serie: D5445 D5460 D5463 D5468 / D7500 Serie: D7560 (CN642A)
  • Price: around 50 Euros, but used printers on EBay go for even less
  • inks: 5 (CMYK, Gray), Black has a higher capacity
  • resolution: 600 x 600 dpi (b&w) / up to 9600 x 2400 dpi (color) (unconfirmed!)
  • contacts: 38 pins
  • nozzles: one group of four for the colors, one line for high volume black 9same height)

Reset: On, unplug, press and hold # and 6, plug in, hold 10 seconds
