Question about Roland VersaCAMM SP-540V

1 Answer

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.

This was a used machine and we had to have a service tech out to replace so things, but he got the heads working and it was printing ok until we had to leave it sitting 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.

HOW TO RESET ERROR E161-403E


  • To enter SERVICE MODE the machine has to be switched OFF. While the machine is off, hold down the sheet or roll feed button and the information button. Keep these pressed and switch the machine on, keeping the buttons pressed until you see an S in the top right-hand corner of the display, then let go of the buttons. You should now be in SERVICE MODE.

first try to print nozzle check in services mode.
Scroll right to the service mode box (rightmost box) and press OK. You should then see the word 'DISPLAY'. Scroll right until you see the choice 'ADJUST' appear. Then scroll down until you see the choice 'NOZZLE 1' appear and press OK. If you haven't already loaded paper, the printer will prompt you to do so and then it will print out the NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN.

check go any nozzle no firing out ink..if ok means printhead problem need replace.

later go to maintenance menu choice replace print head.

then follow their picture image to replace the print head.

I was using my Canon MG5220 printer and it turned off by itself nothing that I tried worked it doesn't turn on cable is Ok a/c converter is Ok


Bad news - either the main-board is toast or the gear train has got out of sync. A good service tech might be able to fix it, but it is unlikely to be salvageable. It is also possible that the print-head has cooked, but they are usually more expensive the just replacing the machine.

Machine does not work. message on display says: MACHINE ERROR 41 What is that?


Very likely your print head is faulty. You can get it replaced or try the economical solution below.

I had the same problem after replacing the print head. I removed the ink cartridge and then unclip the two metal two clips by the side that hold the print head. Then I used WD40 to spray through the ink holes until the clear liquid comes out from the print head.Then I replaced everything back and start the cleanning process, do a few test prints. It works ok now, no more Machine Error 41. Therefore, sometime the problem might just be clogged pin heads!

This is a mechanical problem with the printer head it will need to be repaired.

Try an authorized service center with the link below, sometimes its better to buy a new machine.

Why Am I getting the error 41 message?How can I fix it. Can I fix it myself?


Hi there

Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement.

My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while if it is under warranty.

If it's out of warranty they are usually a throw away job, the heads cost as much as the printer.

Sorry I know what it feels like, just have a go and see what you can do, clean the heads and so on.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Cannon mx 310 error 5100 Says chck printr with alarm light flashi


heres the problem from service manual: error 5100, a error occured in your encoder signal, it list 4 things in the serice manual.
carriage unit. carriage motor, logic board, timing **** film.
ok my first thing i would look at is the film that runs directly behind the print head i would think it is dirty. just turn on printer and get print head to the middle and turn off machine, gentle move print head to one side and gentle clean the film strip with a cloth with a little metho on it, move print head to other side and clean other part of ****.
i reckon that will fix your problem its a common problem they tend to get a bit of grease on the timming ****.

The black print don't work


ok you need to take out the inks then remove the print head it just comes out once the inks are taken out, get some windex and clean the bottom off the print head with a fine lint free cloth spray the windex on the rag then clean the print head, also if its really bad spray windex into the where the inks also sit give it a good squirt let it sits for a few minutes then wipe it out, make sure you DONOT touch the gold bits on the printhead. refit to machine do a head clean on the driver should work fine.

Does anyone know how to remove print head?


The print head nozzles is clogged but good. None of the cleaning the machine can do will clear it. Been there and trid that. Doesn't work. The clogs need to be dissolved with a specialty clog buster and probably will need to soak at least 24 hours, maybe more. Don't deep clean any more as you will put so much in in the absorbent blotters on the inside of the printer that you will trigger an error code and not be able to print until the absorbant pads are replaced by a service tech for about $100.
