  1. Are the gears that adjust the head height etc to the right if the capping station correctly aligned? If out of synch that will cause problems. When the head returns over the capping station it should lower and raise the head but if the gears are not correctly aligned with each other then they cant function. Each one will have an alignment mark on them.
  2. 0xE4 is to do with the carriage return so probably a bad connection on the flexible cable between the head and the main board or a dirty/damaged encoder strip.
  3. Does the encoder light up? You have probably tried something, hopefully just on the sub board but possibly the main board if it gives the same error with a replacement encoder.
  4. For the LED's as long as you have a decent heat sink fitted to them then you can use a pc cooling fan.
  5. The current needs lowering as it's over driving the leds. Are you using a fixed current power supply? Going by the suppliers spec to get optimal performance stay within their limits but you can run a lower voltage.
  6. The main thing is to limit the current to 1200ma or less. If you overdrive them it will damage them. Also you should have a larger heatsink than what you are using, heat is the biggest killer of led's.
  7. Do they claim it wont fame epson parts for any model of epson or just certain models? The epson 3800 head is not suitable for at least a lot of if not all uv inks but the 3880 head is ok with them all you just need to change the dampers etc.
  8. Has anyone tried printing direct to the garment using sublimation inks? Sublinova Smart says it can print direct so just wondering if someone has tried it and what the results were like.
  9. Yes they should be ok, you will need a heatsink to mount the leds to and a suitable power supply for them.
  10. You will need to use the icc specific for the ink and printer to get totally accurate colours. Also try adjusting the outputs in acrorip such as contrast, brightness, ink % etc.
  11. I only use sublinova myself. Over the last 7+ years I have tried loads of different ones but always go back to sublinova.
  12. 4x 10w LED with a cooling fan in the housing.
  13. Looking at that the ink is not sublimation ink. At that temperature just about any length of time would give results for all colours on 100% poly and not as vivid but definitely clearly visible on 50/50 polly cotton. I have tried many different inks and will now only use sublinova as I find the results the best by far.
