    i have a Mutoh Falcon outdoor ll and when setting my media the carriage goes across to read the size of media, then the rollers pull the media back to find the end of the media but the media falls out the back of the machine. it seems like the media sensor is dirty and not detecting the. media edge. i want to clean the sensor but dont know were it is located. can someone tell me were the media sensor i located? thanks in advance

    Should be on or two oval shaped cutouts in the back near the rollers.

    In the back where the media first feeds through.
    Should be about 1/2 to 3/4" oval shape.

    I dont remember if there are one or two on that machine.
    If one, it should be in the center.

    If two, one center one near the capping station end.
