First try re-installing the PF-2 print drivers. If that doesn't work, then try a different ink cartridge. If you have printed more than 5000 discs in the printer, it just may need a good cleaning as the sensors would be full of dried ink.

You'll need to put in a new printhead, QY6-0075-000. They cost around $60.00. It is very common for the printhead to go out, they are much like a light bulb and burn out when you least expect it.

PF-2 "singulator problem.

You need to replace that part. My company had to do it last year, and we need to do it again soon. It breaks down easily and will work like that.

Call Microboards. They'll send you a part (you'll probably have to pay for it - ours was under warranty) and show you how to install it.

Pf-2 says out of paper when l have cd it

Yes the inks have a 1 year span. The system in the printer reads a barcode on the ink cartridges. It is located on the far left of the machine as you are facing it. Lift the cover and you can see it.

Cost pre print?

I don't have a pf3, but I have been using 3 of the pf2s over the past year. I use them pretty heavily for large printing projects and they have held up pretty well (with a little maintenance from time to time), so I would hopefully expect the same performance from the pf3...

The cost per print will vary, of course, depending on the coverage and quality of printing (photo mode uses more ink than graphic mode). I have been recording how many discs I can do of certain jobs per full cartridge and have found the cost per print range to vary between 20 - 35 cents.

I'm also not sure if the pf3 uses proprietary color ink cartridges (the black are not) like the pf2s, but I found only one reliable company that can refill them that has helped us lower our ink expenses...

Good luck in making a decision!

Only 1 copy at time

The previous poster is most likely correct. You have to use Microboards ink for the PF-2, PF-3 and PF-Pro printers. The part number you need is the PRF38ml. The PF-2 printer has a sensor for the barcode on the PRF38ml as well as a RFID chip for verification.

If this does not fix your issue, then the sensors that scan the barcode and the RFID chip may be broken, dirty or out of alignment. If so, you need to contact Microboards or an authorized Microboards repair center for repair services.
