When you print you need to turn "Edge-edge" printing off. Then the PW sensor will not go into effect.

Never give up, I have been through a lot of problem also before and right now I am in the middle of modifying Epson Pro 3800, see here https://www.t-shirtforums.com/diy-dtg/t170993.html. Ask some help to the forum and post some videos of your printer error if necessary, I guess there are a lot of people here willing to help you to finish your DIY DTG Printer

I have concluded that the problem is with the timing of this sensor. It is tripped twice... Once to verify paper and secondly when printing commences. If the timing is off you will get a paper feed error.

You can remedy paper feed errors created by the PW sensor by turning edge to edge printing off...

Re: homemade DTG with Epson 1100???

This thread is a bit old but thought this would be helpful to some.
I thought I could make a go of a WF30 (work force 30) thinking since it was a current offering, they would be available into the future.
Result - is it way to hard to get the sensors to work properly. Do not waste your time. Plus the housing and frame are almost entirely plastic so there was a lot of "fab" work to make a support for the printer head assembly. I wish I would have found this info before I tried. Onto a 1900 or 2200 now.

Re: homemade DTG with Epson 1100???

I used normal Epson ink. The inks are not biggest things. The problem is the coat for the tile only!
Thanks for asking

Re: homemade DTG with Epson 1100???

At first, is the shirt 100% cotton?
You must hover the heatpress above the shirt for 10 seconds, then lay a sheet of parchment paper above the shirt and then you need to press for 2 minutes with light pressure
Try also to lift the press at the 1st minute for 10 sec and the press for another minute
