I really hope someone can help me with this.  I purchased a Roland VS-540i new about 5 years ago.  It's always done a great job on printing.  Up until about a month ago.  Now whenever I print, it…Continue

"flushing is tech level Are you using OEM inks Do one normal clean before you start to print and see if that helps As for the banding, have to stick to what your print shows - however you are on site and there should be no gap or overlap if the arrow…"

"We were in the process of headsoaking before we saw your reply yesterday so we let it soak for 24 hours.  Today we went to +15 on calibration and checked and it looked like it needed to go back to +05, so we changed it again. Yes, we did change…"

"OK calibration - as expected the overlap - equal spaced dark bands - go to +15 or 20 Using arlon - if not arlon profile from their site go to Roland and get the GCVP for a better than generic If changed cap, then make sure it is springy and little…"

"Definitely won't be messing with the damper then.  Trying everything else possible first before needing to call a tech.  And hopefully :;crossed fingers:: that we don't need to."

"Thanks for the info on the longer soak.  We had done some research on that but didn't know if soaking it longer might harm it.  However, it completely makes sense to soak it longer to get potentially encrusted ink off the…"

"A good head soak is about 48hrs on a new top with 100% cleaning solution, since 2 hours will not completely loosen ink dried in the nozzles. Can I get a clear picture of one nozzle test straight on. To get to the scraper on a VS you will have to…"

"i wouldnt recommend doing a damper without a tech, as the head needs removed and reinstalled and realigned to do it."

"Todd,  We just replaced the cap, wiper and felt all last week, as we had tried to do some research on our problems before asking for help.  But I don't know what a scraper is.  Can you give me more information on it? Is the…"

Todd Collins replied to Joe's discussion Banding/Cross contamination of colors
"hi Joe, Likely your cap top needs replaced, and is past its life cycle. I would assume that this also goes for your wiper, felt and scraper. These items are to be replaced about every 6 months. With the contamination coming back after some printing,…"

Banding/Cross contamination of colors

I really hope someone can help me with this.  I purchased a Roland VS-540i new about 5 years ago.  It's always done a great job on printing.  Up until about a month ago.  Now whenever I print, it shows bands of darker colors on the lighter color prints.  When I print a nozzle test, 1st test of the day, it shows cross contamination of cyan into my yellow.  So then I do a normal clean, and print another nozzle test and it looks ok.  I have attached both nozzle tests.  I have done several manual…See More
