Roland VP-540 plotter yello not printing

Post by Geremia » Wed Aug 02, 2017 7:07 pm

Good morning, I use a Roland VP-540 plotter and from 2 months ago I started to use compatible ink ,. A few days ago I found that the yellow prints 50% then no longer prints and obviously I tried to do full cleaning so many times and I did manual cleaning but nothing,
At this point I think it is a print head problem so I removed the yellow head and tried to do the cleaning with a syringe, it was completely closed and while doing this I found that the liquid comes out in the other part (where there are 2 hole in the dx4 head) so when push the syringe in the first hole the liquid comes out in the other hole (i think i ruined the head)
I INSTALL THE head again (until i pay a new one )
I changed 2 DAMPERS for the yellow
I changed the CAP-TOP for only the yellow
I make a test and the SURPRISE that the red also IS NOT PRINTING., BUT how it come and I DON'T touched the red. WHY RED IS NOT printing

Cannot give you detailed engineering advice unfortunately. This could end up MUCH more expensive than it already is. A qualified service engineer will fix your printer in an hour.

where are this fuses located? I am having a problem, that after doing some research on this site, I think is linked to the head fuses but have no idea where they are. Can you tell me in what area they are? or if is it not too much to ask can you (or anyone) post a pic?

thanks in advance
