Question about MicroBoards PF-2 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

PF-2 "singulator problem.

My PF-2 began to drop several disk at once tonight. The "singulator" I guess that is what it is called, moves rapidly back and forth several times each time a disk about to print. I now have to feed one disk at the time. After printing the disk the singulator will rapidly move back & forth maybe 4-5-6 times so if you have several disk loaded it will begin droping 3-4- or 5 very quickly. I don't know if there is an adjustment I can make or if it is a problem withthe board?

That issue typically is caused by a defective spring that can be easily replaced. Microboards sells these springs. Microboards techsupport number is 952-556-1639.

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.

What is a PF kit

This is a "Paper Feed" kit and comprises several small pieces including rollers, springs and friction separator pad. Some models have several of these and will be named "PF1 kit", "PF2 kit" etc normally one for the manual feed tray and one for the paper drawer.
If you look at the front of the paper drawer, you will see a spring loaded friction pad in the centre used to hold back all but one sheet of paper. Directly above this in the printer chassis will be a loose rubber roller assembly which grabs the sheet of paper. together, this collection of parts is called a "PF kit".
The printer memory counts the number of pages fed and will count down an estimated useful life of these parts but this is at best a "guess". When they will no longer reliably feed fresh new paper without jamming, they probably need replacing.

Printer makes rapid, sharp snaping sounds just before and sometimes after printing.

It's a sign of a dying printer. My guess is that it is a plastic gear skipping or missing teeth. I've had several inkjet printers with this issue, but how long it will continue to work after hearing this can't be gauged.I had one printer that lasted almost 2 years after it began to "snap"... Another printer died in just a few weeks. What will end up happening is the printer will most likely throw an error up, and that's when it's toast. If it were a more expensive printer, it might be worth fixing, but this model can be purchased for less than $80.

There's a reason those printers are only $60 - $80. For your next printer, I suggest reading a LOT of online user reviews, especially if you are going to go cheap. There's nothing wrong with going cheap, but you have to be even more careful. When I buy printers, I even read the reviews for the ink cartridges it takes, just to see how long they really last.

Only printing one disc after changing colour cartridge red light on using original parts for PF 2

I have had this problem and tech support said to adjust the sensor on the left that the cartridges pass by so the sensor can sense the foil strip on the cartridge. I moved mine a little closer to the cartridge path, but obviously you can't move it too much or the cartridge will hit the sensor.

The disk will drop but will only move a few inches before stoping. All of the belts are intact. The arm which holds the printer ink stops in the middle of the arm as well


Please fix the physical components of your printer particularly the belt and its rotator that causes the problem. I strongly suggest that you have to fix it or replace the components of the printer that is causing the problem. Also find a technician or shop that handles the repair of printer and let them repair your printer.

Dvd feeding problem

The reason you are having trouble with DVD's and not CD's is that the DVD's are a little thicker or taller than the CD's. The area above the belt system has to be adjusted upward. this adjsutment is not in the manual, and is complicated. My company, Techware DIstribution, has had as many as 20 of the PF-1 and PF-2 printers running in our production and demo room. We can walk you through the steps to make the adjustment if you like.

You can try adjusting the top side and left side numbers within the printer driver. After changing the numbers, and you still have alignment issues, then you will need to get the printer professionally cleaned in order to get the sensors back to factory spec. PF-1 and PF-2 cleanings run $200 - $350 depending on how much ink needs to be removed from the vital sensors, gears and motors.
