any way to bypass using cleaning ink?

Post by FAZEL77 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:17 am

Hi everybody
i have Roland BN-20
i wanted to install the printer on my system running win10, i followed the tutorial from youtube videos and i have stocked in cleaning step after i choose my Ink type and colors, i have run out of cleaning ink and can not continue the process
by the way, the printer has been cleaned before and im wondered if im going to install the printer on new PC or reset the windows should i have to use the cleaning Ink every time? or there is a way to avoid this step

Have a look through the archives, I think this has been covered before!

When installing the machine, you do need a full cleaning cartridge, once this has been completed you shouldn't need to repeat the process.

HI, thank you for answering me, we have cleaned the printer, and moved it to new location and wanted to install on new system, every time we have to do the cleaning process ? even if we wanted to change the windows or PC?

If you have completed the ink fill you wouldn't need to perform it again. Windows and the PC are not connected to the machine in that way so this shouldn't have any effect, unless you are selecting a pump up or head wash.

I bought a second user machine from Metaza, and since it came with inks installed already, a new versaworks dual install just read the machine at its current state and no ink renewal was needed. Just a nozzle check when it arrived and it was golden :).

One full cleaning cartridge would be needed to complete a head wash, alongside the dummy cartridges.
