Greetings all and I will check with Roland next week, but in the meantime....... Have anyone had issues with jobs being dropped after partial printing. I have used 3 different systems all resulting in the same thing - jobs partial printing at various points. I have used different size files and types of jobs and media all with the same results. I am running the latest firmware and versaworks versions. I have restarted the machines to include mainpower switch. I have also went from wireless to hardwire. So now all of you 201 tech savy folks and other ideas. I am running out of ideas for partial prints. Thanks - and happy versa printing to you all.

My jobs are printing but are not wanting to return to cut. I have checked the cables and don't believe that to be an issue.

Thanks Stan. Since I last posted I have still run all jobs successfully, the largest being about 5 feet. I do agree what you posted would cause the same, especially anything vying for network time.With all of that said, my problem seems to have been attributed to a network connection (RJ45) not fully seated. The vibrations of the machine was causing the drops and the machine clearing the memory as if the job ran successfully, during the times it did not clear, I would get a now processing display that stayed until I manually cleared the machine, Thanks again.

Also check for background applications running on rip station, and the most common cause for dropping jobs mid-print is virus/ spyware protection software and firewalls. Disable all of these types of apps. If you aren't getting any errors and the job appears to have completed in VW this is the most common cause I have ran into.

Jeff read the earlier posts - but in a nutshell - the issue is connectivity usuallly so do the following:
- check cable insure seated properly in the back of the machine and at the router
- insure cable is working
- insure you are not running a lot of memory hungry programs
- insure you do not have any programs that are going over your network that can cause interruptions

Just my thoughts - If you look at versaworks it usually tells you when the printer is not connected but it can dump the job and then show as if it printed fully

I, too, have run into this same problem. But, it usually happens on larger jobs for me. I'd greatly appreciate some advice.
