One other thing to check is a waste tank reset. You need the epson adjustment program. U can google it and find for free. From time to time it needs reset.

I already checked all of them.
This happened at initialized process, not at printing process

This printer has worked before
Here is the vid:
I thought the problem come from the scratched of encoder wheel

Default Re: Epson 2100 / 2200 Mods

I spent many months on one of those. Your problem is either:

a) the pf encoder is not in the proper place. It is VERY touchy. So touchy that if I ever built another, I'd cut out the side of the printer frame that would leave you with the hole for the motor, pf roller, and pf encoder mounting holes.

b) the wires in your extension wiring to the pf motor are reversed. (only possible if you have not yet got the printer to work)

c) maybe the pf encoder wheel has dust or the printed lines are scratched. lint free wipe down with a cloth damped with windex.

d) if you made a pf sensor flexible flat wire extension, check your solders. it is such a fine cable that you may have a cold solder in your attempt to not melt the thin wires.

The biggest clue is that the pf motor does one high pitched (faster rotation than normal startup operation) and short lived spin prior to a fatal error condition.

This is not a guarantee that the fatal error will clear, you may have something else going on once you get that fixed... but this should get you to the next step.

I should also say that the o'clock position that the sensor is mounted does not matter, it is the angle in both planes and the distance from center and the plastic wheel should be free and not rubbing as much as possible... just that little bump should be barely touching the front or back (can't remember which side... it's probably the non-printed side)

@ourfaeyza

i checked the wheel but only works sometimes. it has no scratches but 2 bends, therefore i think ordering a new one is definitely the better option.
i can order you a new one , at € 3,50 , but they charge me € 7,50 for the shipping.
they dont ship outside europe , so i will have to let it be sent to my home and then to yours.

shipping to your country will depend on the service :
€ 6,00 for plain shipping or € 11,00 for plain express (not insured)
€ 8,05 for shipping with tracking number (insured) or €13,05 insured + express

the sensor and the ffc are already here.

I see what you did but I'm not sure how you did the shaft. it looks like it has a grove for a snap ring on the end where the sensor is. any other pictures or info you can supply?

thanks,

Philip

I just removed anything that is not used and kept the only 2 sides of the asf unit. the one side carrys the gear and the other the sensor. I cut down the shaft from 40cm to 4cm and connected the 2 parts. 2 screws to keep parts together and viola.... a 4cm wide asf unit.

Yes i measured the original length from the groove to the shaft end and after i cut it down i re-made the groove at the same distance from the shaft end using my dremel so the snap ring can secure the whole thing together

So did you cut the ende shaft off th with the gear on it off and leave the end with the sensor alone. Do you have any pictures.

Default Re: Epson 2100 / 2200 Mods

Hi, I have 2 questions. Does the gear need 2 snap rings on both sides of the gear to hold the gear in place.
Next how did you determine where to cut the plastic? The picture you posted I couldn't tell where you cut the plastic.
Did the smaller ASF assy mount the same as the original larger piece or did you have to mount different. Normaly it mounts on both sides of the printer.....ok 3 questions :-)

Thanks,

Philip

The gear side left as is, i cut the plastic so the 2 vertical pieces can come together without leaving a gap. Νotice the black rectangle, this is the plastic to be removed
