I've been tinkering with this Kiosk 2 for the past 2 days to get it up and running and I am getting an error after start-up.
*The printer starts up, does an automatic cleaning right away.
*The Error Eject light begins to blink.
*The Epson Status Monitor gives a paper jam error and indicates something to do with the PE sensor - I'm assuming that stands for Paper Eject sensor.
Have you ever experienced this error?
Can anyone point out for me where exactly that PE sensor is located?
P.S. I highly recommend the Status Monitor from Epson (free download from their drivers page), it's great help at least to me. The Kiosk with its 6 buttons and no display is pretty cryptic after working with the Epson 4800-based machines.
Update: here is the full error message:
"Paper jammed or not fully ejected"
Press the Paper button on the printer or click the Eject button when it appears on the screen.
If the paper does not eject completely, move the adjust lever to the lowest position and remove all of the paper by hand. Then reload the paper and return the adjust lever to its previous position.
In the meantime I tried:
-Cleaning the encoder strip (light brush with 70% alcohol, no visible ink/dust)
-Cleaning the encoder sensor area with compressed air
-Cleaning and oiling printbed rollers (the 16 white plastic ones)
-Cleaning the yellow board of the print bed (followed Harry's T2/G2 instructions)
-Cleaning the Epson feed rollers that guide the yellow board (light, thorough swab with alcohol)
*Printer seems ok after start-up, brief Paper Jam error, then goes into Ready.
*When trying to do a nozzle check, printer gives a communication error in the middle, then comes back, nozzle check is never done, but printer goes into a cleaning automatically, then Paper Jam error comes back up.
*I also tried moving the print-bed by hand, while the printer was powered on, it went into the Eject position, then threw a Fatal Error (high-speed simultaneous blink of Error Eject+all 7 ink lights)
Would that be from the manual movement of the print bed?
