    Hello,

    I have read error when I insert a Magenta ink cart in my Mutoh 1204. I looked inside the ink cart opening with a flashlight and I saw that the little electronic chip that read the card is broken inside the printer.
    Where can I buy this part? is it easy to replace?

    If not is it possible to remove the ink card requirement of the printer? I use bulk ink so it's kind of a pain to replace the cards all the time.

    Thanks for the help

    Ink ID Board Assembly, at least that's what they are named for a Mutoh 1604. A little tricky, but not difficult.

    Why do you print with the cards installed? I use a cartridge that contacts that part inside the machine and has an external port for the card. After the machine is booted up, I remove the smart card.

    That's the guy, for other models the part # is DF-43968, chances are they are the same part. If you need help getting one, let me know. Also, if you are using the bulk cartridges that has a contact to that part inside, with the card being installed on the outside, remove the cards before printing. Just don't do it during a print or when information is being read. Do after initialize and save $.
