Question about MicroBoards Print Factory InkJet Printer

1 Answer

PRINTER WILL NOT FEED THE DISCS TO THE PRINTING STAGE.

My Microboards cd/dvd printer has a problem releasing the discs(they seem to get stuck when dropping) also as the rollers roll the disc towards the print area, the disc stops and cannot be printed. I can still see the back third of the disc where it gets dropped and if i give it a bit of help, it goes through. Can you imagine how frustrating this is to have to push every single disc through 1 at a time. Any help would be gratefully accepted.
I think i have the earliest version of the printer. It's about 4-5 years old
Many thanks

    Thanks for your reply Juoni, but the discs i have used for years have never been a problem, i think it is a programme error. Many thanks for replying.

    Regards

I´ve had that same "problem" once.In this case the "problem" was with discs.They were thinner than those that I normally use. You could try with different discs.

CD does'nt slide anymore inside the printer to be printed at the second step, after going down at first


Either the sensor and/or the laser lens inside the tray are dirty, a common fault printers)or you are not aligning the disk properly when placing in the tray. You can try using a CD\DVD cleaning disk and a can of compressed air to blow out dust. If this fails uninstall the printer's drivers and software and reinstall everything from the beginning. If that fails return for repairs. NEVER use stick on disc labels, only use write on discs

You've got an expensive unit (see below for Press Release), with a built-in CD/DVD reader/writer.
Given that your unit could be six years old, it's possible that the reader/writer has "died".

It seems to be a "stand-alone" unit -- not something that requires either Mac OSx or Windows XP/Vista/7 to operate.

I'm guessing that _ANY_ IDE (not 'SATA') HP-brand reader/writer, provided that it has a "LightScribe" capability, could be purchased, and could be inserted to replace the "dead" reader/writer. For about $100, it's worthwhile to try this "substitution" to revive your unit.

Single blank disk inserting wont work (Mircoboards PF2)


You may have a disc loading error. To correct this follow these instructions:
Disk Loading error:
If a disc is not loaded correctly, it could cause the out of paper indicator to come on. Press the out of paper button on the interface. The printer will attempt to load another disc. If this does not clear the error, remove the discs from the input bin. Check to see if there are any discs on the belt. Remove any discs that are left on the belt.
Lift the cover and check for any discs on the front part of the printer. Remove any discs found on the belts. Close the cover.
Next, reload the input bin and press the out of paper button. The system will load the next disc and continue printing the remaining discs for that job.

If that doesn't work, and there are no obvious jams in the transport system, I'd call support and see if they can walk you through a fix. They can be reached at:

PF-2 Won't detecd cd


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.

Pf2 ink cartridege recognition issues


Sounds like you have either a defective ink cartridge, or the sensor that recognizes the cartridge is either dirty, broken or out of alignment.

Microboards will help you out at no charge if your printer is still under warranty. Otherwise you can contact an authorized Microboards repair center like

Disc Feeding Problem


I am assuming you are using a PF-2 printer. If you are using a standard HP78 ink cartridge instead of the Microboards cartridge, the unit will only print approx 5 discs before it stops. The microboards cartridges have a security tag under the barcode label that is scanned by a magnetic reader on the left hand part of the unit. If you are careful, you can use a razor blade and remove the label from a microboards cartridge and tape it on the front of a HP ink and save yourself about $25 an ink cartridge...

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... http://www.emeraldrecycle.com/

Good luck in making a decision!
