Sorry for late reply.. Below are the pics..

my advise, be extra careful with the pf sensor.. i spoil 3 of those.. also be patient with the sales person who will laugh at you when u buy a single function printer..

PF sensor

No worries.. im happy to help.. pm me if you have any problem in your t13 build.. ill see if i can help..

right now my problem is the ink.. even though the epson durabright ink is said to be water and fade resistance, in my few shirt tests i could see that the color has faded already in just one wash..

im washing only by machine and inside out..

Still doing research in the internet which ink to use..

Hi great build! The videos I've seen on youtube use Pigment ink. Its better to convert to CISS to save on ink

My FIRST POST!!

I just want to congratulate you on your build. I'm planning to do the same with my T10 with refillable cartridges. I hope to have a great success as you did. This past weekend I disassembled my printer and assembled it back and it's working properly so, I think I should be okay.

I will definitely share my project in this forum with lots of photo as soon as I get started.

Unhappy Problem with the build

Hey men I'm building the same printer as you. I got is all set up but wont start.

When I turn it on, the head starts to move slightly and then the motor kicks in briefly, then everything stops and the two lights start blinking.
I'm thinking its the positioning sensor not reading the wheel or something. My thinking behind it is that the system stops right after the motor kicks in. But I'm not sure at all.

You said you had to replace 3 PE sensors. Are those the ones with the plastic wheel and sensor? How were u able to tell they were broken.

Default Re: Problem with the build

It happened to me as well.. when I tried to extend the ffc for the PF sensor.. like what u did.. only I use ffc also not individual wires.

I spoil 3 of the sensors bec the lead connecting the ffc was weak and it breaks all the time.. I know bec it does what you are experiencing right now.. spins a little bit then becomes general error.. I solved my problem by just using the original cable carefully extend it to a working level.. I gave up on extending it..

wongmoxy Hopefully you get the answer, if you get an error on start up check carefully the sensor, you might miss one wire to be soldered, I do not use the original wire but made like you did and it worked because the original was too short, and I solder the cable directly to the motherboard (not from the front but from the back)
