Need help finding a printer part

for an Epson 777. Friend of mine gave me this printer and it's sat for a while at home until this weekend when I finally got around to buy the color and B&W ink jet cartridges. So I get everything plugged in and put the ink cartridges in only to find out that there are caps that close over the ink jet cartridges. Well one of them is missing so the printer keeps giving me an ink cartridge error Any ideas where I can get a replacement? I haven't had much luck finding one and was looking for some help. I'd hate to waste the money I just spend on ink and a cable to just get rid of this printer.

I'll snap a picture of what I'm talking about tonight when I get home.

Were you able to get a picture ?

If I'm thinking correctly, its the tabs that secure/hold the cartridges down. You *might* be able to get those through Epson, but I doubt it. I'm pretty sure they interchange from different Epson models. Your best bet might be to find someone on craigslist with a parts printer, or if all else fails, rig up a hold down device. I might have a spare printer or two I could source for parts. Just post a pic up when you can.

Here is the pic.



Let me know if you maybe have a spare part laying around that might work for me. I haven't really tried taping it down or anything to fool the printer into thinking it's secured. Will give it a try this weekend. I'll post it up on Craiglist to, didn't think about that. Thanks man.

I'd go to any computer store that has printers laying out and open one up and snatch it!
