Question about HP Photosmart 475 InkJet Printer

Open Question

Microboards GX1 disc publisher CD print alignment out.

We have a microboards GX1 disc publisher. This uses an HP photosmart 475 printer in it's system. It prints OK but the CD print alignment is out. The printer preferences only allow up to 1.4 mm adjustment and it needs at least 3 or 4 mm. As it seems to only allow .std or .stt type files from Sure Thing s/w we can not seem be able to do a work around by using a straight offset jpg image. Sure Thing creates a non removable mask so no image adjustments are useful here either. Any ideas? To fix or for a work around?
cheers
Ric

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.

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...
