I'm working with a Roland Versacamm VS-540i and I'm not sure what needs to be done with this issue. We have some cyan stripe banding at the beginning of solid prints of color but after an inch or two it goes away. Do I need to perform a head soak?Please help! Thank you!See More

Loading vinyl-set length

When I load new vinyl into the printer and lower the pinch rollers there is a new-ish dialog that comes up on the printer screen after the print carriage assembly has done its usual thing (scanning from right to left) while setting up to print. I went into the media settings and apparently created a new media setting for each time the printer is loaded with vinyl and the pinch rollers are lowered into place.How do I reset the media defaults to NOT ask for media length. I have to manually back…See More

"I've been in the wide format print game since 2005 and I've used several RIP softwares. ONYX is the industry standard for most production wide and grand format printers. VW has many pitfalls and ONYX blows that software out of the water.…"

Marilee replied to Joe Lamb's discussion Banding when printing blue
"To add, make sure your vinyl is not touched when loading into the printer. We use a CLEAN microfiber cloth every time we change out the vinyl to make sure nothing will affect the print. I've had issues with blues banding on the most expensive…"

"The issue with your greyish black is the fact that when you have a color (red for example) and transition it to black the color values are not consistent. For example if your red is 0,100,93,0 and the black is 0,0,0,100 the black will appear this…"

Need a larger gap when sheet cutting

I've recently made the switch to ONYX 12 and I've noticed the media is not advancing forward when pressing sheet cut as when I was printing in VW. There was a noticeable difference of about 1" at the end of my prints. My workaround is advancing the media forward before sheet cutting. This extra space at the end of the prints are for taping the sheets of laminate before my production guys send this through our laminator. We print and laminate MOST of our vinyl.Is there a function that I'm not…See More
