Re: problems with epson 1100 mod
Quote:Originally Posted by tieutusamacMr. German13,

I had that problems same as yours now, I'd appreciate if you have solved it. Please let me know how? then I can make mine.

Thousand thanks
Khiden yes...

I solved it heres how... buy a 1400,1900 or above epson printer with roll mode or manual roll mode capability..

I worked with the WORKFORCE 1100 for 6months.. YOU WILL NEVER GET THIS MODERN STYLE PRINTER WITH ITS SENSORS TO WORK PROPERLY WITHOUT ERROR -WITHOUT ADDED FIRMWARE... you can Read the trials of this in the micro controller thread that was started early 2010..color finger was working on the workforce aswell.. im not quite sure if there is an older version of the 1100 without the sensor configuration of the current version..that may be different..you can manually trip the WORKFORCE 1100 by hand and get it to print 1 out eight times, so if you see a vid of one of these working thats how they did it unless it has a micro controller or plc but it will most certainly have programming issues and will need a separate power source isolaters extra sensors etc..alot of money for a cheap cmyk printer...it only has sheet mode capability so it requires an added controller of some sort to dictate the sheet feed timing in coespondence with the pe.. you can do it with a micro but is not reliable.. its cheaper to upgrade in printer for an easier fix.. upgrading has other benefits aswell.. rip support, added channels for white ink, perfect multiple pass registration etc etc.. bestway to debunk claims of one of these working without extra firmware is request an in person viewing of it operating starting with powering the printer on thru printing..this will give you the truth or a vid showing same.. if theres extra firmware you should see this in the wiring mods its easy to see from the board out.., if you have a vid of this nature send it to me and ill check it out for you.. how the extra firmware works in most cases is it reads the pulses from the asf then emulates this timing thru the micro to start print..however it does not end the print this would have to be done by adding sensors in place of the pe... the big problem with this printer is the paper feed motor (the one on the paper feed tray itself ..stepper motor...starts the process it moves paper into position then when it hits the pe the pf (the one with encoder disc attached) takes over the process ..so this timing has to be matched perfect or you will get fatal errors or paper jam etc... i suppose the programming in the driver could be altered..we were not successful at doing this either.. it would take some one familiar with the printers language.. you can however pull it out and read it with certain hex editors..

anyone who tells you any different is feeding you a line of B.S this is the printer i started with.. save yourself some time and money and move forward

Thumbs up Re: homemade DTG with Epson 1100???

Mr. German13,
At first, thank you again for your advice.
I’ m going to buy an Epson 1400 printer as your suggestion to move on for my DTG printer project. But my financial so limited. So now, I can only afford the Epson 1400 printer. I‘d appreciate if you could spare me a plan for the Epson 1400 printer.
Thanks German13,
Tieutusamac

Default Re: homemade DTG with Epson 1100???

Hi, I'm new to the project. I can not publish photos of the position of the sensors but they are and make sure the printer is epson b1100sin no additional electronics. I can only print with gimp and guntenprint and then turn the printer on the first impression never goes out. I have many problems with the color and that seems gutenprint drivers are not good because I get the impression not as in your computer. I printed over 100 times without getting the right result, I have tried in w7, linux and mac and all I have the same problem.
I put a video as the sequence of the burden of paper and then you know that the sensor has to turn pf the same speed as the paper.
Greetings

hola, he estado muy liado y no he podido entrar en el foro, voy a publicar las fotos del sensor del papel, que esta puesto en la barra central de la cinta transportadora (que solo se mueve cuando la base de la camiseta llega hasta el centro), tambien pongo las fotos de la placa para que veais que no tengo puesto ningun sensor externo para que funcione, mañana pondre un video completo de la epson b1100 funcionando.
Lo que no he podido solucionar es el problema que tengo con los colores y tambien me alarga la imagen 1,5 centimetros en a3 que supongo que es por la cinta transportadora.
Espero poder ayudaros a montar la vuestra y tambien pido disculpas por escribir en español
Saludos

Im still on XP. But I did get both Gimp and Guttenprint loaded
Was wondering at first because the majority of the Gimp documentation seems aimed at mac or linux.
The PF sensor looks the same as on the WF30
Cool looks like its frankenstein time for the WF30

The translotor link did this (¿Sí, bueno o ningún bueno?)
Alambique
de las gracias Im en XP. Pero conseguí el Gimp y Guttenprint cargado
se preguntaba al principio porque la mayoría de la documentación del Gimp se parece mac o linux dirigido.
El sensor del PF mira igual que en los parecer
frescos WF30 su tiempo del frankenstein para el WF30: D

Thank you for providing ideas on the workforce series
