    • Hello Friends   I have successfully converted Epson L1800 to UV but i have some question and  facing some problem with printer. I am using Partner Rip as for now. Following is my questions and problems. (1) What should be wiper blade position during printing process ? My wiper blade remains 90 degree to head during printing. Shouldn't it to face head while printing?can any one provide wiper blade position sequence ?   (2) When i start printing large object it prints vivid colour and super quality but slowly slowly print becomes faint if i do ink flush from Epson utility  again printer start printing in vivid colour and then slowly slowly becomes faint after few prints.What should be reason of it ? is it air leakage of dampers ?   (3) I have removed Epson original tank and added UV ink bottles for ink supply by drilling two hole on top of bottle one for ink cap and one for air.What should be height of ink bottles compared to print head.If i rise height of bottles then ink continuously leaking through head.If i lower bottles then i need to do ink charge frequently to maintain print quality.     Awaiting response from your side!!!
    • Hello   It is not the problem of CR motor , Main board , UV led  or anything else.Sometime resetting CR motor heat protection may work or may not. Due to load of ink pipes and drag chain on CR motor, it consumes more current causes printer main board to predict that it is heating high.CR motor temperature is just prediction by Epson main board based on it's current consumption. I my self suffered from similar problem and change CR motor Main board etc but not got any solution. I have seen one amplifier adaptor like device on aliexpress. Which takes signal input from CR motor and drives CR motor from external power supply.It simply make Epson main board fool that motor is not consuming high current and feeds current to motor from external supply.   Use that adaptor and your will solve. Image attached.Non promotional just for help.   Greetings from India  
    • So it’s probably 90 nozzles X 6, like the l1800 and 1430.    you could easily modify that ink system and run that printer with an external tank, or an automatic mixer, or simply using a syringe and recycling the ink manually which would only take a few minutes every day. The cmyk never settles, at least it hasn’t in months on my end. So doing the white only would save time. I know the eco tanks are built much cheaper, so my concern now would be the quality of the wiper/ capping station.    What were the issues you had with the 15000? I designed some resin cartridge adapters and laser cut some silicone for it. I haven’t tested it yet, but it makes the 15000 have the “nipple” for regular dampers with no chance of leaking. In my eyes I’m still stuck on it being a great candidate, at least for a throw away printer. If it was $350 every 6-12 months, it would be one of the easiest and cheapest running machines, especially if you just slap in a damper and it’s golden. 
    • So far it's been great.  XP-15000 I think is faster. Here's a video of a full print. Its like 12 mins to print. DTF Et-8550 A3+ Film  Full Printout
    • That’s good. Yea, if they ever come out with a damper style manifold for that printer, I think it would be Golden. What’s the speed on that one? The xp 15000 does a 12x12 in roughly 4 minutes cmykW. It’s hard to judge by the video.
