  1. Yes the head is fine with uv inks. The dampers need replacing as the originals let light in. Look for uv ones that allow you to connect the ink lines from the tank direct. I'll see if I have a photo.

  3. Yes the P800 can be used for uv. The best way is to get chipless firmware installed. Remove the standard dampers and fit uv dampers with uv ink lines going off to uv ink tanks.
  4. With uv you neef to make sure the head is suitable such as the epson 3800 is not but the 3880 is.
  5. It will do it OK. Depending in the leds and the heat sink used you don't always need water cooling and just a fan for air exchange is enough.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. For the LED's as long as you have a decent heat sink fitted to them then you can use a pc cooling fan.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Yes they should be ok, you will need a heatsink to mount the leds to and a suitable power supply for them.
