"Dennis your errors are always one offs. With all of the adjustments, did you restart VW or your system so they could take effect. I do not know for sure, but would be my first step."

irving donaldson replied to Mark Fahey's discussion Does anyone still print on SC540 Pro11?
"Never owned or operated one personally. I have serviced and installed. That printer would have some age on it and that needs to be considered. 18 months ago would need to know how it was deserviced. If the ink was removed, then it is good to go. If…"

irving donaldson replied to Buffy goodwin's discussion Dampers?
"It could be a damper, but likely not. If no ink, damper; if some ink, captop or air in the lines. You just changed the top, so I will think air. You need to do a choke clean to remove the air - if not capable, then powerful cleans also can remove…"

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.
