Re: AIO board questions + leadscrew driven systems

In the Arduino code an INT can't be more than 32,768 you will need to change the data type to get a larger number. Search unsigned int and long.

Sundeep,

Nice build. 
Did you have to change the step count for the advance? 
I got mine working but every other advance (sheet feed) does not move enough.
I'm using build 14

It's important to use the newest build 16. There were some step corrections and bug fixes.

I will you know when I get caught up ...

Re: Epson R1900 chip resetting

I think you can get some ink cartridge sets that have a push button reset

Re: AIO board questions + leadscrew driven systems

I manage to boot up the printer. A strange thing happened. If I start the printer while the AIO board is booting (the plate is "searching the Bstop limit switch") it gives no error. Otherwise, is no way to start the printer. Later I'll post a video. I also tried with the motor disconnecte...

Re: AIO board questions + leadscrew driven systems

For the motor current. Opposite of what you have. 0 is down and 1 is up.

The 2pass button is for a toggle switch to select if the shirt platen will automatically go back in for a 2nd time.

Bstop is for the back limit switch.

3. Yes you will have to change those.

Re: Ok - simple question - why use the Arduino at all?

Using the Arduino electronics or other custom electronics allows you to build a more reliable and solid machine. Without using any external electronics a DIY builder has to rely on power of the small epson paper feed motor and use friction between the paper feed roller and their shirt platen. Any sl...

Re: Heed help!!

At that point it is probably easier and less likely to damage something to just replace the whole printer. Why steal all of those parts off of a good printer to put into a used one.
