P400, R1900, R2000, R2880 printhead compatible?


Recommended Posts

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

El cabezal de impresión p400 solo funciona en la p400. Es una variación del dx5, pero no funciona en ningún otro. 
 

necesita uno de esos costosos cabezales de impresión fuera de producción. Según mi experiencia, la dx5 gris apesta para DTF, que creo que está en la R1900, estaba en mi r1800 y R2400 y ambas nunca imprimieron tinta DTF correctamente, solo tinta estándar. 
 

buena suerte

yo he tenido 4 r2400 con dtf y me ha dado muy buenos resultados el problema que tengo ahora que los cabezales están descatalogados por lo que estoy mirando como puedo usarlas pero no encontré nada todavía, había leído que se pueden poner unas placas para poder usar cabezales dx5 de  su hermanas mayores pero no se que tal funcioan..

I’m not aware of any, they only have “adapters” for different versions of the dx5 which has been discontinued for some time so any variation you need will be very expensive. If your talking about replacing the nozzle plate, I’ve never found anyone successfully doing that long term. 
 

Sorry, I just moved on and tossed all that stuff So I don’t know much about them.  I have a like new Chinese printer that uses dx5 heads going in the dumpster later next week. Too expensive with plenty of other cheaper options.

I tested, P400 can only use original P400 printhead - part #FA24000.
P600-P800-R3000 use the same printhead.
Thank all!

P800 printhead is F196040. So it can be used as F196030(p600), F196020, F196010(r3000 and 3880), F196000(3800 i think).

P600 printhead F196030 can be used for below too but not for P800.

same goes for for R2000 R1900 etc. But p400 head is completely diffirent.

I agree. P800 head works in p600, but p600 head won’t work in P800 from real world use. Rest I’m unsure of.
