"Exactly, folks say it does not matter - and it does - You may save money at the expense of your machine, but OEM is the way. Glad it is up - Happy CAMMing!"

"Irving thanks for all of your help with this, quick update. In the end I called out a Roland tech, so to start with he replaced the new 3rd party cap top I put on with a genuine roland one... and wow after 1 powerful clean all of the colours…"

"Based on an agreement with Roland, we cannot teach you on how to be a tech. So a service manual is a good start and taking pictures and figuring out what is not in the manual, for is not there and the service schools teach you the rest. The ink is…"

"That all makes sense thank you, one last question if I pull the dampers out (to check they're seated properly) or the line going into the damper to draw the ink will I get a flood of ink when disconnected or will if hold in the dampers and…"

"Pulling the dampers can be done - I can give you some cautions - but in my post b4 this I explained how you should do it. Remove the line going to the dampers and pull the ink, if it pulls, then you will need to change damper - if it does not pull,…"

"Hi Irving, I replaced the cap top and trimmed some of the old tube off as you suggested, however I still can't draw ink through yellow and magenta there is still air in the lines and when I've pulled ink through the cap top with syringe…"

"OK non OEM top is better than non OEM dampers. So on the tops use the old tubes but cut a slight piece off to ensure a snug fit. The ink is make to draw back to the cartridge if there is no seal. No seal is a loose tube fitting or a bad seal now on…"

"Hey, so after a good head soak for probably more than 48 hours, all the black seems to be there, and just a little cyan. I've done a few powerful cleans and it seemed to bring the ink back to some of the tubes where there was air but in one of…"

"Thanks for that, I'll report back when the head soak is done and I've done a couple of powerful cleans, I'm keeping hopeful! "

"White and Silver are the heavier inks that would clog the printhead and require replacement of the top every six months. Yes correct on replacing with a cleaning cartridge and then if require - replace and do 2 powerful cleans to bring it back to…"

"Thanks for that really appreciate the reply, I started another head soak this morning so will check and refill as you suggest tomorrow morning, and have the OEM cleaning solvent. I've got some hopes for this machine with it being so new I…"

"OK one more head soak for 48 hours with OEM cleaning solvent. You must unplug the machine or turn off the main power to prevent self cleaning during the process. Fill top until it just spills over and clamp lines under top to prevent it from…"

Hi all, I've just joined up, came across the site whilst searching youtube for help!So I've just purchased a BN-20 thats been stood for some time it's only a year old and has only used about 50% of the original inks! But at some point it's been left unplugged and now it's not printing, I've done a head soak for 24 hours, ran through all the cleaning options available on there and managed to get the black printing but no other colours.So my question is what else can I do to try and revive this…See More
