Epson Workforce DS-510 / DS-560 repair service
Don’t want to take apart your Epson Workforce DS-510 or DS-560? I have repaired hundreds of these scanners using my replacement shafts. The broken shafts will be replaced and the scanner fully tested before I send it back to you. Service costs $45 plus shipping. Turnaround time is 1 – 2 days. Quantity discounts are available!
- Set the sheet feed switch to the multiple sheet position (down) and pop open the front cover. Make sure that the separation roller (the one in the front cover) DOES spin freely. This roller will only spin towards the scanner as there’s a metal tab that doesn’t let it spin the other direction (away from the scanner body). If it does spin freely and/or makes a clicking noise, then one of the shafts is broken and I can fix it.
- With the cover still open, check that the main roller, which is the second one from the top, only spins down. It should not spin up. The end of this roller sometimes cracks and causes a page feed issue along with a clicking noise. This roller can also be popped out and the plastic end inspected for damage. I have attached a picture of what the damaged roller looks like. If this part is bad, then you’ll need a new roller assembly which costs between $30 – 50 and is user replaceable. This is one of the rollers that should be replaced every 100,000 pages, however, they can and do fail way before that magical number. Here is a picture of what a damaged roller looks like:
