Default Sharpness problem for small designs

Hello

I bought Epson f2100 1 week ago. But I can’t use as i wanted.

My epson was just set up as CMYK. because I only print on light colored fabrics. And using standard platen 14x16 inch.

I'm having problems with sharpness in the first 4 or 5 inch prints, and epson can't find a solution. In general all have platen sharpness problem. however, there is a serious problem in the first 5 inch print areas. If I use uni direction problem decreasing. In addition, Cyan and Magenta were installed instead of 2 White and they were installed that way.

Have you had any problems in this way or do you have a solution? Epson authorized service is trying to solve the problem. but I don't have much hope.

Thanks

The F2100 has two ways to be configured:
1 - with 4 cartridges of colors (one for each color) and 2 of white

2 - only with cartridges of colors and no white

In the second case you are not able to print with an underbase of white (so dark garments are excluded), but your prints on light garments are faster

It's not possible, in a standard way, to convert the printer from one configuration to another. I don't know if a technician can do it.

Regarding your sharpness problem could be that you need to properly allign the head (you can find the procedure on the user manual) or you are printing with too much distance from head to the platen.

There are others problems that could be involved, but you need a technician to do the adjustment (for example angular adjust of the head, tension of the cr timing belt and so on)

The machine has been installed by an Epson technician?

ah one last thing, it's strange that using bidirectional printing you obtain better results. Unidirectional prints are always better and more precise on small and detailed designs

Yes, if i use uni direction results better. But thats not my problem. My problem is the first 5 inch sharpness is very poor. Printing starts to improve after 5 inches. Epson technicians still can't solve the problem. They changed platen, but it didn't. Head alligenment settings were made.

Epson technicians installed the machine themselves. Since I wouldn't use white ink, they put Cyan and Magenta in place of white ink and said I could use it like that.
