LEF20 can't change to EUV4

Post by LASERBU.de » Sat Mar 17, 2018 5:23 pm

Hello out there,

i wanted to change the Ink Type to EUV4 and couldn't do.
Looked for latest Frimware: Printer has 2.60 on it, latest i can get at Roland is 2.5 !?!
Update as not possible, because the installed is higher than the actual a can download.
OK
after doing the change Steps i Install the new Ink Cartridges, turn the Printer on and have to select the Ink type. The screen shows cmykwhwh and i enter. Than it says wrong ink type, nothing to select. None of the Buttons do anything.
I had a LEF12 before, there it was no problem to change it.

Thank you Kai foer your reply, but it's not the Problem to read the instructions.
I think my Problem is the Firmware 2.6 that doesnt know the ink and is to high to be changed by me.

Are you changing the ink type on the display to EUV4 CMYKWW or are you leaving it set to EUV CMYKWhWh?
You should be able to change using the arrows.

that's my problem. I can not change the ink Type with the arrows. And i can not change the Firmware because it is higher than evreything i can get anywhere.

in 2 days a technician will come but i think he also hasn't understood my problem - another two days not printing...

You can download the latest firmware (2.8) from this website

How are you performing the upgrade? by performing the ink change in the menu or have you performed a pump up?

The method to change to ECO-UV 4 is through the change ink type, not through a pump up. If you perform a pump up you will only be able to select the current ink type.

The engineer will be able to reset this and set it correctly for you,
