Default How to recognize a print head fatal error in epson 2100?

Hi
As in a topic. The printer does not initialize fully when there is no paper loaded(when printer checks way of cariage for a second time, moves not to far left end completely, then to home position and moves slightly towards left and error occures), when launched with loaded paper from back, when paper button pressed or sent job, while measuring paper error occurs. The printer has been working properly for one month. I've replaced strip encoder, entire carriage, motherboard, Power supply unit, front panel, trailing and sensors of paper and lever. Problem remained intact. Carriage moves easily, without any difficulties. Device runs on CISS, modified to DTG (has been working and printing properly when had sensors manually driven, now cannot print anything due to this fatal error) What may it be? The worst thing is unability to read out what is the error about. The last thing that seems to be a problem is a printhead.
Thanks in advance

I solved the problem. The solution was simpler than i was thinking. I suspected carriage mechanism because of sudden stopping just before occuring fatal error. The solution turned out to be too much overloaded PF motor. The worn bearrings was making too much additional friction for motor. After replacement them everything is okay.
