Question about Roland Vs-2000CD Digital Studio Workstation System

2 Answers

I have a Roland Versacamm and as it's printing an image that is supposed to be a rectangle shape 40"x60"...as it prints out the image is not straight it actually looks wavey like a flag? The printer was OK for 4 our of 10...then an error of cartridges not connected came up and the heads were manually pushed to the return position with the power still on...any ideas of what I can do?

    sounds like you need the printer to be aligned again what printer are you using? so we can narrow the possiblities down more.

This sounds like a scan motor error. clean encoding strip and test. If still wavy remove scan sensor the one that reads the encoder strip, clean with alcohol, replace and test. if still bad replace encoder strip and the eye that reads it.

Hi have had a similar problem with my roland SC500. It sound like you need to realign the heads. If you can find a service manual online for your printer it should tell you how to do this. It is very easy with the SC-500 not sure about the Versacamm but certainly sounds like out of alignment heads. Hope this helps!

How to connect Roland MV-8800 fiber optic to Roland Vs 2480HD


I'm sorry. I have no first hand experience with these units, not to mention, I'm a hardware guy. I can repair it, but I have to look in the owner's manual, just like you, to use it. These are questions you should be able to find in your owner's manual. If not there, check with the Roland website.

My spd s has a bussing soud...I have change the cable and still the same problem


I was using a 25 foot 1/4" to XLR cable from the back of the Roland directly into the Thump. As mentioned, I tried going from the Roland to a direct box with a 1/4 cable on both ends; then out from the direct box "thru"-1/4 fitting, to the XLR connection in the Mackie Thump, with a cable that had the 1/4 on one end and the XLR on the other. Still buzzing. So for grins, I hooked an XLR to XLR cable from the Direct Box Low-Z out, to the Mackie Thump, keeping the 1/4 plug going from the Roland to the Direct box and eliminating the "thru" connection from the direct box to the Thunp, (1/4 to xlr). NO BUZZ.
There is a definite loss of signal strength, ie: everything is coming through quieter, but I can raise the volume of the Thump to FULL, with no buzz, and I can raise the volume of the Roland Module to full, and still no buzz. But there is a definite loss of overall volume, I think because I am not using the direct box properly. Hmmmm. As I understand the Direct box, the IN and THRU are supposed to be used as I was, going from the Roland module to the IN, then from the THRU to the speaker. The Low-Z outs are supposed to carry a signal to a mixer, I suppose to use a FOH PA system, or for recording purposes. Still, I have no buzz. Now...........

In looking over the cords, I suddenly realized that the 25' 1/4" to XLR could be the problem. The 1/4" plug is STEREO! Not mono. Could this be the cause of my buzz? I'm thinking I have a stereo plug, so 2 wires are involved, yet I'm using it in a mono imput in the roland. Perhaps this is creating my ground loop?

After getting a 1/4" MONO to XLR adaptor, attach it to my XLR to XLR cord, go from the back of the Roland (1/4") to the speaker directly (XLR) and see if my buzz is still gone.
The problem now becomes going from the Direct box to the speaker, since it needs to be 1/4 mono from the box, and xlr male to the speaker. I cannot locate a cable like that! So, I guess the next best solution is to get an adaptor to convert one end of the xlr/xlr cable to a 1/4 mono plug. At that point I don't think the cable would still be considered a 'balanced' line though, since it goes from 3 wire at the xlr to 2 wire at the 1/4 ts plug, right? The only other solution is to continue running out of the direct box as I am, using the Low-z out xlr connection, so I can continue to use the xlr/xlr cable.
Also there was a button on the direct box, called a PAD, for -15dB, I assume that what was causing my signal attenuation. When I pushed it in and it released, I suddenly had my volume back.

My roland vs2400CD keeps getting stuck at the load screen. I have tried the factory reset, but can't complete it. Is there anything else I can try, or do I have to have my hard drive replaced?


Hold the two buttons down above the slider on track #4 when turning the power on. You have something that is corrupt on your hard drive. This bypasses looking for a project to load up and just goes straight to the operating system.

The vs-2400 will not print any more cds.


I'm having the same problem! I contacted support and the guy swears its the CDs im using, he says they're **** (memorex, sony, etc etc). he recommended "Micro Boards" brand.

He also said that if that doesn't fix the problem, it might be a fragmented disk which will need to be re-formatted or replaced.
