Exclamation I have a hopefully simple question about R3000

Hello ever-so helpful members, I've recently invested in an Epson R3000 with a UFO base. Successfully replaced the printhead, sorta kinda had a successful main board swap. Only problem I am having is getting the printer [B]back into roll mode[/B], buying roll paper isn't the road I'd like to take + I've seen a lot of other members say how easy it was to do but never described the process. Any help would be appreciated!

Using the Roll carrier proved to be straightforward (the instructions on the front LCD made all these operations simple to carry out) and the process worked without a hitch. One nice point was that the printer gives you the option to have a cutting line printed onto the paper before it is ejected - very helpful. The paper is then ejected far enough for the print to be cut off and it then rewinds the paper back into the machine, either in preparation for the next print or totally for removal of the roll. This highlighted one small point, as the roller is not driven, the excess paper has to be manually rolled back onto the roller, which can be a bit fiddly and is best done wearing cotton gloves to keep the paper surface clean.

Prints from the other surfaces all performed well and the machine handled the 6x4 prints without problem.

Ink swaps were handled automatically when changing from gloss to matt and back again, taking around 1.5 - 2 minutes from gloss to matt and around 4 minutes when going from matt to gloss. According to Epson’s own information the former change uses about 1mm but the latter takes 3mm (that’s about 12%!) I watched the ink level bar fall three notches during the matt to gloss swap , not a comforting sight.

Default Re: I have a hopefully simple question about R3000

Thank you so much for the help Reymond, very well explained and the pictures help me see exactly what you mean. Here's the thing, my printer set up doesn't use the ASF motor or roll paper assembly, I am looking for a way to switch into roll mode from my computer if possible. Any ideas?
