Re: I can’t connect printer

VW only works with SP-300V and not the SP-300, You can use VW 5+ with a 300, but you would need to convert it to a 300V, easy to do just search for conversion, or just go here https://signs101.com/threads/this-is-ho ... 00v.77249/

Now however, every once in a while I get the 0080 Scan Motor Overcurrent Error 2, this only happens when the print carriage is parking up. I have run linear encoder setu...

Versacamm time line

From the SP range of printers onwards, what is the order of the models and year when they came on the market?

Re: SP-300V print/lam/cut with crop marks

Have you tested the job without the laminate, if it performs the same try a material with a different backing material. Yes and it was almost the same Kai. Moving on, I went through the crop mark setup again in the service menu, and even though it is spot on, I am still seeing a small misalignment ...

Re: SP-300V print/lam/cut with crop marks

It's not the roller, it's the parts that hold the roller in place, if they are cracked, you can get the issue you are having.
