no the encoder is on the left side looking from the front ,it reads the little plastic clear disk an the paper feed wheel or axel, you will see a red light on it. if you didnt move it thats not your problem..Nope, I didn't mess with the carriage unit at all (I think that encoder is located on the back of the carriage unit, right?).
No, actually - my printer can't make it to ready state. It goes through the boot-up process until (I assume) it tests the PE sensor in the paper holder assembly, then I get the two flashing lights error. Do you think Multirip will override that?
