L26500 or Latex 260 - can I use a previously used OMAS controller PCA?

HP Recommended
HP Designjet L26500 Factory Number CQ869-64001

Can I use a used OMAS PCA (from another printer) in an L26500 (Latex 260) latex printer? OMAS controller PCA PN CQ869-67061

 

I am getting system error 50.1:11. Per the manual it could be the OMAS PCA, Sausalito PCA, or the cable between them. The cable seems fine, and I reseated it.    The cable between the OMAS PCA and the OMAS sensor seems OK too. But I'm not 100% on that. I reseated it on the OMAS PCA end.

 

Or I suppose it could be the OMAS sensor (module).

 

I did get a front panel message many months ago (the last time it was powered on), actually about 3 years ago. I feel bad about that.:

 

"OMAS not reading. Clean it or disable from RIP."    I have cleaned it, but have no RIP; I'm just troubleshooting it presently apart from a computer or network.

 

From all I have read from others' posts it seems that most likely  it is the OMAS controller PCA or the OMAS sensor (module). This post seems to indicate that it could be one or the other:

I am going to try the OMAS controller PCA as it seems to be the cheapest thing to do at first, but want to go cheap and buy a used one. A new one appears to be about $230.

 

Thanks.

I have been told by a tech:

 

"Yes, you can use a used OMAS controller."
