    Sublimation will only work on a polyester material or a polyester treated surface.
  2. You said it was working properly before you moved it. Did you check to see if the carriage rollers are riding on the track properly? One good bump could knock them off the track. Just my 2 cents.

    Epson Problem

    Update I looked through many video's for resetting my printer and downloaded the WIC reset tool and installed a trial version of the reset that sets it back to 80%full. I wanted to make sure that it would work and the printer would still print properly. After 1 clean printhead it printed a perfect nozzle check. I then printed rectangles or all 4 colors and it printed like new. I'm going to use it as is until I get the message again and then purchase the software that will set it back to 0%. Thanks again guys

    Epson Problem

    Thanks Haumana, I also saw this on the net . My concern is with security issues and a possible virus. I have a desktop that I reset a few months ago to the factory specs so I'll use that unit for the reset. I'll let you know how I make out.

    Epson Problem

    Hi All!! Do any members of our Forum use Epson printers for sublimation? I have been using an ET-2720 Ecotank printer for my sublimation work that I bought new on August 2021. I've been buying Sublimation ink from the "E" site and printing at least three times a week, projects and either nozzle checks or small size photos, just to keep it clear. I recently got the ink tank "end of life near" message. I cleaned the ink tank and replaced the ink pads. Low and behold, I now have the printer telling me that I cannot print anything and to contact customer support. Having gone through many emails back and forth I was told to send it to an Epson Service Center. After calling them for more information they let me know that to work on it would cost me $95 +. Heck, I only paid $180 for it. Does anyone know the trick to reset the ink tank counter? Thanks.

    New business and new to sublimation

    I recently purchased an Epson ET-2720 Ecotank printer last year and filled it with sublimation ink from on line. So far I am getting great results.

  10. What did you do to get it to print right? I'm sure everyone, besides myself would like to know. Thanks

    I just checked the printer manual and it has it's own email address. So, I can still print something daily by just sending the printer a small, say, photo from anywhere. Got to love the new technology.

    I used a Ricoh SG3110dn printer for eight years for my Sublimation work. As Dakotagrafx said, you could let it sit for weeks and it would still print properly. My unit developed mechanical/internal problems and I could not get it printing again. Since I am not doing a lot of work anymore, even though I enjoyed sublimation, I started looking for a less expensive alternative unit. I bought a new, simple, Epson Ecotank printer(shop around for the best price) that was cheaper than my Ricoh. I found Sublimation ink on the big site for a MUCH LOWER PRICE and have been printing various items for the past few weeks. I have been either printing a project or running a nozzle check every day just to keep the printhead ok. So far, so good.

    Printer conversion

    Hi all, Well I went ahead and bought the Epsom printer and Sublimation ink from the internet. I filled it up and after changing some of the settings I made up two name badges. So far, so good. I felt good to be at it again. How often should I print out something small and/or do a nozzle check. I know that Epsom's don't like to sit idle for too long. The ink from the internet is very inexpensive compared to the Ricoh ink so it's not a big deal to print something every day or so. I haven't been doing much work over the past year due to my wife's illness. I wanted to get back into it to keep my mind clear and active. Thanks
