"Nope never do I mind when I can find time to come on here. The issue is that service mode is key combinations and we cannot give that out here due to an agreement we have with Roland, and as a Tech it is like leaving the front door open. Neither is…"

"Your choice Dave, but I can promise you Ive worked on at least 20 machines that were using Bordeau ink, and every one of them needed new heads because the particles in the ink is clogging the nozzles. Can you pull ink through the heads with the…"
