Desactive only paper sensor in my epson p600

Sat Dec 10, 2016 2:41 pm

Hello,

I'm a photographer who use his Epson P600 with transparency papers (i don't want to make T Shirts, Only use some Transparency papers Easily)
I need an advise from people of this forum because i would like to desactive paper sensor in my printer.
With Epson, we need to use a blank paper taped to a transparency paper to print with success. 
but sometime the paper is moved and the result is awful.
Have you an idea to desactive the paper sensor in the epson p600?
Many Thanks for your Help.. :P
Arno

If you want to completely eliminate the paper width sensor and not lose nozzle checks yes you need the emulator.
Most RIP software disables the Epson checking for the paper edge at the beginning of the print. Also, maybe just turn off borderless printing.

It might be hard to install on a stock epson printer since you can't remove the sensor very easily.

Have you tried printing from a RIP like: http://www.quadtonerip.com/html/QTRoverview.html

You can use rubber with a half black/white paper directly under the head at the pw sensor.

The pe sensor is another sensor. Your problem surely come from the paper weight sensor which send uv light and capture the reflection. If your plastic is transparent nothing will be reflected. If too much is reflected it'll think there is a paper jam.

Not that I know of, but it was a couple years ago that I messed with it.
