My Kiosk has the error eject light flashing and all the little red lights blinking at the same time very fast. I have replaced the encoder strip twice unpluged the printer, oiled the rails and still have the same lights flashing. Help!
You probably have to reset your waste ink counter. This can be done through the adjustment program that you can download from our web site: Fast T-Jet Adjustment Program
The program works on the Fast T-Jet 1 and Fast T-Jet 2 printers as well as the DTG Kiosk, all of which use the Epson 2200 print assembly.
Hi, how long have you had your machine? I only ask that because I have mine for over a year and never have had to replace the encoder strip. When the error eject button is flashing at the same time as the other lights, for me it has helped to clean the encoder strip. I apply some clear windex on a paper towel and clean the strip. It's normally very dirty. I'm not telling you that's your problem or that's the best way to fix it, but has worked for me many times.
One other time I had the same problem and cleaning the encoder strip worked. For some reason this time it is not working. I was just wondering if someone had any other suggestions. I didn't know if there was something else I could clean or what else the lights flashing fast at the same time could mean. It had been working just fine printing shirts and then started laying down ink where ever and then the lights started blinking. Thanks for the help!
Open your control panel, then printers then Epson 2200 and use the Maintenance program to see if you can "get status". Sometimes it will give you enough info about what the problem is like, waste ink counter, etc.
The bed goes in and out without a problem. What do you think I should be looking for on the print head carriage being blocked or interrupted by a foreign object. I can push it from side to side when it is off.
It is on initalization. The carriage begins from the capping station. Then moves very slow to the left then fast back to the capping station. Then very slow again to the left then fast again back to the capping station. Then very slow to the left again and then stops. That is when all the lights starting blinking. Thanks for your help.
Yes, the "S" needs to be on the front, upright. Also make sure the spring is not stretched out and that the emcoder strip is riding properly through the encoder sensor on the back of the carriage. It is possible that the encoder needs to be replaced, if you clean it regularly with Windex or cleaning solution it will eventually wear out. Good news is that they are not expensive.
I am headed to my shop now. I will let you know if that works. I had ordered two new encoder strips and tried both, but I did not look for lint at the back of the carriage. You're right they are not expensive and now I will keep one on hand. Thanks for the tip on them wearing out.
Lint must have been the problem. After I blew out the back it started right up. However now I have another problem. Since it has sat since last Tuesday without running I tried flushing all the lines with cleaning solution. Replaced all the dampers. Now it barely prints and all the dampers have a mixture of more that one color in them. Please help!
Thanks for the tips! I put a couple of drops of distilled water in the capping station and ran some head cleanings. Should I be cleaning the capping station with something else. I also cleaned the seal around the edge of the capping station with the cleaning solution first thing. The nozzle check is getting a little better. Should I let it sit for awhile? Thanks!!!
