"Hi Irving, I realize that this is an old topic but it is one that needs some further explanation.  I, too, like the idea of printing metallic finishes on my BN-20 but unless you print out the metallic color chart, there is no way to know what…"

"Never push the media back in the beginning - must start at the sensor. On the rear run it out until the rear marks are at the end of the platen and then it should work - 99.9 percent of the time."

"The Sharpie did not make a difference but I reprinted the job and increased the amount of material after the back crop marks and this seemed to work. I remembered that the first cutting job I did using the Crop Marks failed to recognise the back…"

"I will try the Sharpie trick. I was wondering whether something like that would help. I did try to use a black circle from a crop mark cut out of an old job that had a bit of surrounding it but it didn't make a difference. I was worried about…"

"Thanks for feedback, Irving. I found that out after updating VWD; which I needed to do anyway but the Update Options in the Roland@Net Tab of the Preferences section, clearly states Download Media and Color Profiles - see image attached. That's…"

"Yep, you will not find any help on that and you are doing discovery learning for your particular situation. So some pointers - Registration marks also have a lighting factor that can cause non reading - darken marks with a sharpie to see if that…"
