Pf-2 disc feed problem

    My PF-2 prints just fine- one disc at a time. When it comes time to drop a blank disc- the drop mechanism goes "thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk" likes it's trying hard to allow a disc to drop but without success. I'm using the same media as always. The printer was working fine one day, next day not.

I had the same problem. Had to call microboards, (952) 556-1639, and order a chip for $20.00. Put it in myself and now it work fine.

The loader on the pf-2 is controlled by the large chip below the loader, the current version is "V2" also there is a small micro switch on the bar that the print head slides along, check this isnt stuck

Brother MFC-9320cw printer has stopped printing because it is at 50,000 sheets fed & says it needs to 'Replace PF (print feed) kit'. It was feeding just fine. Brother says I have to go to an aut


(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:
(a) Unplug the printer
(b) Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

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.

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.

Microboards PFII just keeps rolling discs and will not print


Di arleady did the first thing that we advise of customers to do - reload the PF-2 print drivers. Since that did not work you a most likely looking at needing the print engine replaced. This typically costs $600+ depending on how full of ink the inside of your printer is. Hoefully your printer is still under warranty with Microboards. If not, you can call Microboards at 952.556.1639 or check ou this repair company

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.

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...

Printing Blank Disc


Have you tried re-installing the printer on your PC? Other than that, I'm not sure what else to try. I have been using three pf2s over the last year and don't recall experiencing a problem like that.

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.
