Star Gemini 10x printer repair

Post by DutchAcorn » Tue Mar 27, 2018 12:08 pm

I recently acquired a Star Gemini 10x which brings back memories as it was the printer I used BITD. The printer works except for the ribbon spool mechanism. It looks as if a spring has sprung.

Trouble is; this mechanism is not easily accessible. The cover plate has pins fixing it in position and they don't seem to want to budge.

Any tips for removing these without causing damage?
