VP540 Long Term Storage

Post by PolarKev » Wed Jun 26, 2019 4:49 pm

Hey folks need help please.
Need to send in my main board for repairs and will probably be at least 30 days with shipping. Problem is I can't find any info on returning printer to factory state before transportation. Need to drain and store entire ink system including heads.

Regards, Kevin

Perform a full head wash on the machine, this will drain all the ink and make it ready for the wait time.

Hello Kai, thank you for your reply. I tried to research what the procedure for a "full head wash" was but came up short except for a whole whack of nothing to do with a Roland VP-540. If you don't mind can you point me in the right direction or to some sort of documentation. Also seen people talking about a service menu and having to access it to perform services like the "full head wash".
Thank You,
Regards, Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Its on page 106 of the user manual,

Menu, Sub Menu, Ink Control, Head Wash -

Description

This drains the ink inside the printer and washes the interior using cleaning cartridges as a preliminary for moving the
printer or conducting maintenance. This operation requires four unused cleaning cartridges. The screen displays information
such as instructions to insert and remove cartridges. Follow these instructions to carry out the procedure. After
finishing washing, the sub power is automatically switched off.
