Can someone please help me on how to get service on my printer and training.  I have recently come into possession of a vp 540 and I don't remember how to use it.  So I'd like to take some kind of class for it.  I also need to have service on the printer, so I need to know who to contact to have someone service the machine.  I am aware I will be charged for that.  I am located on Long Island.  Any help would be appreciated in reaching someone who can help me.

First Blog Entry

Just wanted to thank this website for being a wealth of resources for me having owned my BN-20 for several years waaaaay past it's warranty.  It has saved me an arm and a leg when it comes to repair and maintenance... funny that many of the issues that happened to my printer over the years are now barely even a blip of a memory in my mind, I have gone through all my posts on this forum and realized how many problems I actually had that got resolved on this website, for that I thank…

Printing on raw fabric (cotton) with VS-540i

Greetings all! Just had a customer stop in and was asking about running raw cotton through the VS-540i.

I told him no, as I was worried about lint sticking to and gumming up the print head.

Basically he wants to go to a fabric store, by a bolt of white cotton fabric and get custom pattern/designs for his client who makes limited high end clothing.  Apparently, having a fabric company print it is either cost prohibitive and/or there is too much…

Hi everyone

Based on the South Coast of England, we make FabriStick® - firstly on a borrowed machine, but we have just purchased The Beast - a lovely Versacamm VP300i.

It arrived with three hours of training - which ended up as 25 minutes because our internet connection got severed by workmen literally as the machine arrived - so the RIP software couldn't be downloaded remotely (and the new pc didn't have a disc drive).  Honestly, it was a bit like a soap opera.

So with the help of every…

Roland SP-540v won't print a thing! HELP!

Roland SP-540v won't print a thing! HELP! Came back from the weekend and prints nothing. I am guessing it is the cap tops. I squirted a bit of Roland's cleaning solution into the black and magenta heads and magenta is starting to come back a little at a time. I'm sure this has happened to some of you out there. WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

Versacamm vp540 losing connection

We run 3 computers all updated and have the hp to run the versa works. Versa works is updated to latest version. They are networked. When we send to print sometimes it prints sometimes it stops somewhere in the job. We've changed cables everything we can think of. Any suggestions? The ip and gateway is set the same. When running command prompt and it continuesly pings the machine it never times out unless the pinter stops and comes up saying not processing.

Versacamm VS-540 training

Are there any courses regularly taught by Imprintables or Stahl's for the versacamms?  I am having a horrible time with cut lines not working and perf cuts not cutting.  I'm ready to push this thing out to the curb.  I know there is a new Stahl's shop in San Antonio.  Do they have a course schedule?  That's only 2 hrs away but I'm willing to go over there for a refresher.

Warning when changing vs540 Scan Motor

it Only affects to plotters prior to 2012. 

I had to change the scan motor because it was giving me troubles. 

I ordered the motor to official distributor, and installed by myself. Once time installed it started to work strange, with a lot of errors like "location out of the range", unfinished limit initializations (Head runs to the left limit, but when comes back stops always in the same point.). All of that errors are because roland replaced the scan motor with a new…
