Disconnect it from the PC and power on/off this will determine if it just data related.

If the light continues to flash how fast does it blink?

It is likely that there is a break in one of the head cables and this would need to be replaced.

Hi!

How would one replace the head cables? And where could I order parts in the USA? My machine keeps flashing as well.

Don't think it's data related as I've tried the reset. Can't really troubleshoot properly though as my head manager won't connect and keeps crashing.

Replacing head cables required partial dismantling of the machine. Setting the new cables is a tricky thing to prevent premature wear.

I had a customer greasing the carriage mechanism with a petroleum based grease which melted some plastic parts in the head carriage and failure of the cable. Use Roland supplied grease only.

Thanks for the quick reply!

So would you recommend having a technician do it instead? And if I were to search for the parts, what would I have to look for? I'm assuming it's different from the replacement head and I can't seem to find it in the usual online stores.

Obviously, as it’s not meant to be a user replaceable part. Always best to take it to a tech who can also give warranty on the replacement.
