irving donaldson replied to Kelly IconEcom's discussion Not sure what's wrong
"Yes Kelly those colors on the left are the results of the head strike. You knocked out those nozzles. By chance, the ink dried and the head soak will remove, but more than likely not in your instance.  If this was a tech call, then I would be…"

irving donaldson replied to Kelly IconEcom's discussion Not sure what's wrong
"The Head jammed when it was returning home. The columns shifting to the right is the indication. If you followed the steps you listed and soaked for 48 hours, checking after 24 to refill fluid drawn into the nozzles, then you need a new head to fix.…"

"You are hurting yourself with the colors. You need to use RGB or pantone!  Banding is result of missing nozzles or the calibration being off - So post your nozzle test and lets eliminate some causes"

irving donaldson replied to Bryan G's discussion Versacamm sp300i - Continuing Saga, but weird behaviour?
"Possible no good, possible line is clogged, possible y connector is clogged However, only one line going to the waste - it is joined going in and singled going out. You can remove the good line clamp, and connect suspect line directly to see if pump…"

irving donaldson replied to Declan Mcloughlin's discussion TrueVis VG2-640. Is my print supposed to be this grainy?
"Hard to read but I will explain what I am looking for and why: On media gap: That affects inks not lining up - thus could cause graininess since dots are side by side instead of on top - the simple checks the average and the details check each head.…"

"All of the test for printer calibration has a small triangle under the current setting. I need to see where you are and if necessary where you need to be. All the test are under the menu key. Test Print is the option under each test. Just verifying…"

"Agreed, I see the graininess.  Vector or Raster Color Palette used - CMYK - RGB - Pantone Need the following pictures - one test per picture Each picture will have a triangle - I will need the triangle plus a few readings on each side (the…"

irving donaldson replied to Bryan G's discussion versacamm sp300i - Continuing Saga, Update
"Yes ink and cleaning fluid is corrosive. If it gets to the electronics, it will surely break the head. If you are sure your fuses are good, (continuity check) and the black/cyan are working; then non the SP you can swap ribbon cables. If head is…"

"You are using one of the best printers on the market - imho, however you probably are not using VW correctly. If you do not have the specific profile for your vinyl (from manufacturer or Roland website), then try Generic 3 For your color management…"

"OK so remember to leave the main power in back always on - that is the rule. Exception to the rule: All good headsoaks are 48hours period - when they are done you need to clamp lines under the captop and turn off main power switch to prevent the…"

Connecting VersaWorks to a VersaCAMM

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 3:35pm 1 Comment

  Recently, Inobu and I had a very interesting conversation offline about an online topic of connectivity. He was contradicting my many years of connecting Versaworks to VersaCAMMS. Inobu were using terms like Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) and I was like WTH. Life needs to be simple and the more time I have showing and not connecting is the best for me. I found no problem in setting a static IP address on the network card, and making VWs and the VC have the same address on…

Thank you! 

Honestly, I'm not sure if they checked the tension or not. The cuts are off in the scan and feed direction. I'll upload a picture of a bad print tomorrow.

I understand about the motor being bad, I have ordered new...  What about the carriage feeling sluggish and sticking.  It's only intermittent.  ??  Not to sure.  Thank God I ordered the motor too, just in case.  :)

BTW...  Instant Motor Error on Boot up as well.
