Hi Ryan.
In answer to your first question. The table is a fixed platform over which the " whole printer mechanism " moves. It requires considerable disassembly of the whole printer and removal and relocation of any component or mechanism which is in the path of the " paper feed "/ platen location. The logic behind this design idea is to minimize the footprint of the finished printer. ( If you move the platen under the print carriage then the overall length of the printer body/footprint, will be roughly twice the length of the maximum print length. Make sense?
Question 2.
I have come up against the same problem in respect to the " flatflex cables ", even RS electrical don't stock them ( their catalog is thicker than most phone books ) . The solution that I am going to implement is to buy " from the Epson spare parts supplier " a quantity of the longest harnesses/flatflex cables , in my case the most appropriate one is called " Panel FFC " and has the code no. 2117204 and then split them length ways to the needed number of wires.
Presumed question 3.
If the wiring on the 1410 is like that on the 1900 then in order to extend the power lead from the power board to the main board ( probably a 9 pin ribbon cable), I would suggest cutting the current power lead in half and wiring up a series of extension cables using " d-sub plug and sockets". It beats the **** out of trying to solder the boards. + allows for easy relocation and replacement of the boards if necessary. Please find attached a couple of pics that might help.

Check out the Muto Valuejet printer for longer cables. This machine runs a very similar printhead and the flat cables are for a 48" travel. Mutoh replacement parts seem to be readily available. Many Roland and Mimaki parts interchange as well.

I was pretty sure that was correct also. I looked into the DIY DTG more as a project with possibilities, and not as much a "neccessity". Although it is still cheap compared to a commercial DTG, I just am not going to go the 800 plus for more software right now. I am software poor already I print a lot with a Mutoh 1204 in addition to simple screening.

Did anyone get into the DIY DTG by doing the Epson C88 conversion. I know it is limited with no RIP and limited to white shirts for the most part. Is it a total waste of time and rescources. You guys sound very experienced in DIY DTG, so that is why I am asking.

RacerX,

If you read the 1400 forum you'll see my discussion for a two printer system... One for white and another for color. You would have to be skilled in Photoshop or Photopaint to make this work.

This is the best thread on the 1900 in my opinion. My next build will be on the 1900...

Now go figure, you can find 1800 and 2400 service manuals on the net for free but not the 1900.

Actually EK RIP is perfect for the DIY Printer as it has bed feed and gap adjusment. Massive Ink Level controls that include droplett size and 6 levels of ink. Which is different from the sliders on ink level in most if not all other rips. It actually refers to the number of passes the head makes on each line before moving on. Gap and Feed adjustments usually are required on printers using only the epson board, to achieve high quality results anyway. Some newer additions in the upcoming version also include print offset between white and color layers, different from choke which shrinks the white layer to prevent peaking. This one fixes a problem one might have due to consistent registration issues, so you can say print color layer 1mm lower than the white layer, fully customizeable for the individual machine and operator. Also a timer between when the white layer is sent and the color layer to allow for drying and or bed reset on machines with pass counter that do everything at on push of the button, usually not a DIY machine, this allows the machine to start the bed from a dead stop at the initialzation position for the second layer, This is the cause of some misregistration on advanced machines due to starting the second layer on the fly vs a dead stop on the first layer. This is the rip for DIY I have 3 different one, a version of MultiRip GP, Fast Artist /RIP, and EK. Until Multirip adds some of these features I will have to vote for the EK hands down. Also EK includes your most common maintenance functions in the RIP, nozzle check, channel flushing (usually requires a second program such as printer jockey), head alignment, ink priming, waste pad reset and more. It uses a fixed adobe rgb color profile and the first file from corel was awesome. It's strongest limitation is that it is difficult to import a self made underbase from photoshop to the rip, however unless you are a very advanced power user you will not need this.
Don't get me wrong MultiRip is a great program with awesome support, however EK as raised the Bar with functionality for any user.

The 1800 and 1900 are very similar. However not a carbon copy, but the 1800 manual will be helpful.
I need a 1900 manual as well, I will post if I find one.

I wonder if these places selling these manuals actually have permission to do so?

Seems to me if we could even get these manuals from them, which we cant, they would probably want $80 or more and you would need to be a registered repair center.

I would be willing to pay someone with paypal rather than give some outfit more money that shouldn't be getting it.

Im not joining a rapidshare just for one pdf.

Does anyone still have the r1900 exploded view and parts list? I've only been able to find the r1900 service manual and the exploded view for the r1800 (at diydtgwiki.com even though it is listed as the r1900).

thanks
