BN-20 Printhead replacement

Post by TDR » Fri Aug 19, 2016 1:30 pm

Hello,

I have a BN-20 with a faulty print head.
Can I buy and fit a new print head and then request that Roland enter the changed head rank number into the machine for me?
Will a newly fitted head just cause the machine to error until the number is changed?

Thanks for any advice in advance.

You need to talk to any of your local service providers.

I'd be interested to see the official reply from Clevedon on this question.

Me too.
Looks likes I'm going to have to give them a call on Monday to see how I stand.
Would have been nice to get some feedback from someone who may have done as I would like to do.

Didn't go well.
Seems Roland won't enter the head rank number for me unless they also fit the head.
Cost is too high for me using that method. I'll have to see if I can find an engineer who has access to the service app to enter the data.
Not ideal but what can you do?

Thanks TDR for the info, unfortunately they are out of stock but found another source http://www.digiprint-supplies.com/ in Belgium. They stock, amongst other goodies, maintenance kits. They also offer an "essentials" kit which includes the printhead and as the title implies other essentials for a long term successful implant.
