Can someone make a complete teardown

So I purchased a HP photosmart c4780 for really cheap but it had no been used for awhile.

So I bought new ink and did the couple maintenance walkthroughs that are on this site and still nothing at all was on the paper. So I went to YouTube and followed there teardown. Thankfully I took a million pictures as a took it apart but there are so many springs and gears that i feel like i just took apart transmission.

Any body out there done this before and give me a good place to look for a full tear down or if u could post one here

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yeah I went though all of them. I couldn't afford a new printer so i got that one for $5 and every piece inside that touched ink was covered with dry hard ink. So underneath all of it the very bottom piece had to be removed and i feel like im missing a piece or maybe one of the upper ones slides into it. I havnt been able to figure it out and the video is not detailed enough.


Upload the photos that you took! That'll be a great start for a new guide. Perhaps someone will come along and help you improve it.
