"this happens to me as well .. make sure your graphic being printed is deselected after you print (not highlighted) otherwise if your mouse is hovering it may print accidentally as butch said"

VersaWorks Ghost is Reprinting Completed Jobs??

So this has been something I've been dealing with for a while. After I print a job, sometimes my printer just decides to reprint the last job sent about a 10 to 30 minutes after it has already finished. Is my Roland SP-540V haunted or is there some setting I'm missing that tells it to print it twice at random? It doesn't happen right after the initial job was sent, printed, cutlined, and sheet cut, as I would notice and cancel the second print while I'm out weeding and transfer taping the…See More

"T sponge is under the square. You will need to remove the metal cover ( covering the square sponge ) to access. Be careful not to bend the cover."

Time to Replace Sponge message - SP-540v

Hey guys,I just got this message to replace the sponge on my Roland and I figured there'd be a "how-to" video online, so I went and purchased the sponges at my local printer supply store and now I can't find anything on how to do it. I've checked the manual, its not in the SP-540v manual at all, I searched for "Sponge" in the PDF and only brought up two instances of cleaning them gently and the message section did not include this message. I have a square sponge which i can see in the machine…See More

"Use the profile gcvp and see if that helps. Thats the only profile i use to print. I have tried the others and dont like how they look. Just like you are saying."

"That makes total sense. When we print out long runs of decals, anything past 3-4ft, the cutline starts getting exponentially off center. Up until now, we just thought it was a cutting issue, but now that you point out the print is not straight after…"

"yes we use Roland Inks, we are using Version 5.2.2. We do not have a calibration test, the repair guy said he did one and that its stored in the printer. We do use Generic Vinyl Profile if that's what GCVP What is a head strike? He did not…"

"I agree with butch and would add that you need a head offset alignment - the rows should be straight down in between the two passes of the print head.  You will need a tech to do the head offset alignment"

Banding/Grainy Problems - Roland SP540V

Hi everyone,Newbie to the forum who needs some help. I have a Roland SP540V printer with horizontal banding and grainy/noisy prints. We've had several different "Repair" techs out and haven't been able to solve our problem, just make excuses like "there's some bad ink in there, you just need to run it til its prints itself out". They've replaced our dampers, replaced a head (dark), and have cleaned everything.I am using 3M 3M180IJ white vinyl as my media. When you run a test print all the lines…See More
