Broken Canon Cartridge Holder

By SteveO ·
I have an older Canon Multi-Purpose unit, model CFX-B380IF. The plastic holder for the cartridge is broken. Has anyone tried to repair a cartridge holder or is this now a boat anchor? Are replacement parts even available? I tried to tie wrap a cartridge in place, but no luck.

You can contact Canon for information on the nearest factory support center. Then see if they are willing to sell you the carrier.

As far as repairing the carrier that you have goes, repairing molded plastic parts is very tricky.

First, you need to know what resin the part was molded from. Then you can find appropriate adhesives that can be stronger than the original part.

Another option is to weld the pieces together using a filler rod of the same material.

Depending on where the fracture is and how the part needs to move, you may be able to add reinforcing material.
