Question about Roland VersaCAMM VP-540i

Open Question

Roland VP540 - when job begins, as soon as the head assembly begins to print, I hear a slight knock and the machine turns itself off.

I was printing a job and it just quit. It's as if someone turn the switch off. I have checked all the ribbon cables and the 2 fuses on the mother board, OK - I am able to do a "normal" cleaning, so the heads move back and forth OK. I'm stummped.

SOURCE: Transported Roland KR-177, toppled - pedal assy needs replacing

Good grief! FInd a tech that knows what he is doing. You can replace the plug and/or the jack. Each is a few dollars at most. You can even do it yourself. If you can see where wires went just buy new parts. They are probably available even at Radio Shack.

Testimonial: "Good advice, but someone who examined the carnage said there were either four or five wires (can't recall) and the plug to the machine has eight pins."

My roland vp-540 will start printing and then when busy printing it will just stop, if you go into your versawork on computer it just says not connected? What could be the problem?


Just one Question?
Do you have your LAN Cable tied with your AC power Cable?
I have th same problem on two VP540 after seven years of trouble free working. A few months ago I was reorganizing my shop and I tied up both cables to avoid tangle cables with machine wheels every time I move It.
I think that the noise produced by AC Voltage Affect the VP540 ethernet port.

Roland Versacamm sp540v is not printing yellow or magenta. What could be causing this? We were out of town and it wasn't used for a few weeks.


your print head dry out, cause is: no use! you should detach the tube between the pump and the caps, the one of magenta and yellow, insert a seringe in the tube (that comes from the cap) and suck some cc´s of ink, .then atatch the tube again and run one or two powerful cleanings, then run the test. A smart advise is: never turn off the machine in the main power, the machine when in stand by, does automatic a check and a cleaning process from time to time if needed.

Cannot use printer


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

It looks like the print carriage was stuck. Turn on off the printer, manually move the ink cartridge back and forth a few times, look underneath for dirt or small piece of paper (usually happens when you have jammed paper) or use a blower to clean any foreign objects.

Paper won't load. and Stops printing before it can start.


Try turning the paper around. Some times the corners of the paper get slightly bent and the paper wont load.If turning the paper around does not work, switch your paper. Hope this helps.
