Colorip machines to run on Versaworks

I saw your posting about get an older soljet pro II to run on versaworks. I have a Versawoks SC-545ex and possibly getting an older Pro II that runs on Colorip. I world like to run both machines from Versaworks. If is as simple as changing the dip switch settings on the main board and changing the print head order I'm in. I was Roland service tech before Versaworks came out. I do know the difference dip switch configurations and I have the service manual for both. Please let me know if this is correct. Thanks.

I have an e machines computer with windows 7 home premium. It has an AMD Athlon II x2 235 e processor w/2.70 GHz. It has 6.0 GB RAM w/5.75 useable. And a 64-bit operating system. Is my computer powerful...

As this is an older printer, the requirements are very low, a Pentium class 166mhz computer with 32mb of RAM is the minimum requirement.

By manufacturers documentation, this printer is not supported by Windows 7. Its best if used with a Windows XP platform.

My colors are printing separately, divided and do not overlap or blend. I use a Roland 540 printer, and I have replaced chips, motherboard, and encoder sheet. What would cause this?

If a gap is present decrease the value by going to Menu, Calibration, Setting and pressing the Down Arrow to decrease the percentage shown to match what setting is best on the test pattern. Press Enter to save the value. If the printer does not show multiple test patterns perform the Feed Calibration, Test Print again to check the results.
If an overlap is present increase the value by going to Menu, Calibration, Setting and pressing the Up Arrow to increase the percentage shown to match what setting is best on the test pattern. Press Enter to save the value. If the printer does not show multiple test patterns perform the Feed Calibration, Test Print again to check the results.
Tech Tip: The Feed Calibration is a very fine adjustment meaning that an incremental adjustment of .05% or 10% is very small. Some media will require an adjustment in much larger steps.
Note: The Feed Calibration setting on the printer will be overridden by Versaworks as a default. This can lead to a very confusing scenario where the Feed Calibration setting doesn't appear to make any adjustment. Please see the next page for information on setting the Feed Calibration in Versaworks.

Once the proper Feed Calibration has been established on the printer it is important to make sure this setting is correct in Versaworks. Once Versaworks is open and a job has been loaded, perform the following steps:
A. Double click on the print job to bring up the Job Settings window and set up your media size, copies and other relevant items under Layout.
B. Select the Quality tab and Select the proper Media Type for the job. This step is critical because the Feed Calibration is tied to the type of media being used. When the Media Type is changed the Feed Calibration setting will change to the setting which is default for the Media Type.
C. Next select the Printer Controls tab on the left hand side and under Feed Calibration Controls choose Use Printer Setting.
D. Select OK to save the settings.
Tech Tip: In step C you can also select Use Custom Settings and enter in a value for the Feed Calibration. This allows for making corrections to the Feed Calibration without changing the settings manually on the printer. If you choose Use Default Media Settings or Use Custom Settings the value that has been set on the printer will always be overridden.
Tech Tip: In addition to having multiple test patterns which make for a quick and easy selection to be made the RS, XJ & AJ printer models allow adjustment of the Feed Calibration mid-print by taking the following steps:
A. Press the Menu key
B. Scroll to Calibration, Setting and pressing the Down Arrow to decrease the percentage shown or Press the Up Arrow to increase the value.
C. Press Enter to save the change in value.

Your problem is symptomatic of the 545ex roland sc and know that from my point of view it may be difficult to resolve.
First of all ... if you have a great system ... check that the ink cartridge ink corresponding to the head is properly sealed. If c is ok:
Turn on the machine and then open the hood.
the heads are therefore naturally arises on capping.
determine the top corresponding to the problem and the capping on leqel it. output of this capping there are 2 pipes connected to a T. unplug the vacuum hose and a syringe. the ink is coming ... does not relachrz the syringe so that it is not stable ... reconnect ... cleaning .... And it should go.

Roland SC540 Printer

Hey there, i have two printers, the SC-540, and a VP-540, I love both of them, as if they were my children, the thing is you have to take care of the printer, i dont know what machine you use, but if you have read the manual they continuously refer to the heads as consumables, and that you have to replace them from time to time, now that time depends on how well you look after your machine, i have used some heads less than 6 months bofore replacing, and some kept on working for more than 2 years. it sure is expensive, but you will defenitely see the difference, a short term solution for you problem is to print on a higher resolution, of higher quality. Now that all depends on the type of rip software you use, if you use something like versaworks, you can adjust the quality only, but if you use colorip, you can set the print mode, quality, resolution etc....

a higher resolution can sort out the stripes, but you cant just replace parts of the head, you have to replace the whole head, now, if you use the sc540, you have 6 heads, if you replace them, let the techinician upgrade your machine to the sc540EX, then you can print from versaworks, which is much easier to use than colorip, but you have less tuning options. When upgrading the machine to the EX, you have to switch head positions, so it makes it worth while to replace the heads and upgrade the machine. The upgrading is not supposed to cost a lot of money as it is merely a set of switches you have to set on the main board, but while you do that, you can just as well give it a major service and then you the high cost will be worth while.
