Have anyone experience with replacing printhead in these models. All printhead of these model are DX5 and same structure and mechanism, but I not sure how Epson locked it?
I asked my friend from Vietnam, they confirm that P400 can use R1900, R2000, R2880 printhead. is that true for printer in US?

On the p600, I have used various other printheads from p600s 5 years older, and p800s. Some p600s were sold overseas and imported in the us, and those heads worked too. I know Epson has unlocked, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I have never encountered a compatibility issue, but I’m told and was warned multiple times that it exists. If you look at your current printhead, within the serial number on it ( you can view the serial with wicreset too) it will tell you which one is currently in your printer, and maybe that would help. 
 

sorry I don’t have a definitive answer, I never got one either. I just went with it, and it worked out fine. However, I have never bought a printhead outright. I buy the compatible new/used/refurbished printer and just pull the head from that and store/ sell the excess components, doing that I have been fine.

P400 is not standard dx5 printhead.

R2000 is standart dx5 printhead, not sure about other 2.

Thanks for the update

For reference- a p600 head will not work in a p800. It can boot, it can print, but it will not work. Sometimes they just show an error immediately , sometimes they just give you terrible print issues and tons of errors unrelated until you change the head back.

In need to replace my headprint R1900 R200, this headprint are not abble to find anymore. I found a DX5 P400, It will work on my print? Anyone has an update about it?

The p400 printhead only works in the p400. It’s a variation of the dx5, but doesn’t work in anything else. 
 

you need one of those expensive out of production printheads. The gray dx5’s suck for DTF from my experience, which I think is in the R1900, it was in my r1800 and R2400 and both never printed DTF ink correctly, just standard ink. 
 

good luck
