Question about MicroBoards PF-2 InkJet Printer
When I print a big project, the printer will only print 5 dvd's and then stop. The out of paper lights up on the printer on the left and a red light comes on on the left side of the printer. I have exchanged out cartriges and cleaned it thoroughly. This had been an issue before when we tried to use a different cartrige instead of microboards but that hasn't been a problem since. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?
There is a magnetic strip in each cartridge of ink under the label. If you open up the cover of the unit on the left hand side facing the unit, you will see a bracketwith a circuit board on it that the ink carraige slides over. Under the board there is a magnetic reader(like a credit card machine) the ink carraige slides by and it reeads the ink to make sure it's proprietary cartridges. the reader has to be very close to the cartridge or it will send the machine into error mode after 5 discs and not drop any more. You have to physically bend the metal arm down till the readers within a few mm's of the cartridge (like the width of a quarter) this will fix your problem.
