Re: Trying to print with ekrip

Maybe EK if that is normal, I've never seen it but I also have a demo that is a couple years old so maybe they've added to the watermark.

Re: OpenDTG Basic Base Kit

Andy works whether the controller with other Epson printers, such as the T1100? provided that will alter the connectors. fit algorithm? ANDY IT IS POSSIBLE TO USE YOUR CODE FOR AN EPSON T1100 With modification the code could work with the T1100. The circuit boards I sell probably are not compatible.

Re: Question about DIY using complete kit with R6000 (or P600)

Hello,  I am considering buying the complete DIY kit from the store and using it with R3000 printer. However, I am knew to DIY DTG printing and have some questions first: 1) Is it worth paying $240 (difference in Bangkok) more for  the R3000 instead of buying the P600? I read on this forum that the...

Re: Cover sensor (R3000/P600)

Do you have that motor to plug back in as a dummy?

Epson has a lot of error checking built in so missing motor and sensor is likely to cause an error.

It's giving you that motor error and that motor has been removed so I think that's the issue

Re: Cover sensor (R3000/P600)

Alright, so the cover open error goes away when I twist the wires... but then it just barely starts to pull ink through during initialization and I get a "0xD9" error... which according to the Adjustment program: D9 H : "Ink selector driving time - Increase of changing load of ink se...

Re: Cover sensor (R3000/P600)

If they are using the cover open and close to pause the printer you might will have issues I assume when you send more than 1 print or more than 1 layer (white and cmyk). Can you do a little troubleshooting to see where the issue lies? - Twisting together and then untwisting them when connected to t...

Re: OpenDTG Pretreater Control Board

The solenoid works well. Not sure how long it will last, but it does work. The assembly does drip a little bit after shutoff sometimes. Not enough for me to worry about it tho. Take the nozzle off and do a purge to flush the air out of the lines. If I have air in the lines I get a trailing off of d...

Re: OpenDTG Pretreater Control Board

How is that solenoid working out? The ones I get work great but are $110 ish. I've seen those like you have for cheap on amazon. I notice a much more even spray with a 100 psi pump vs 60 psi, also its better (I think you do) if you have a decent amount of line between the pump and solenoid. If you g...
