Question about Roland VersaCAMM SP-540V

1 Answer

Roland Versacamm sp540v is not printing yellow or magenta. What could be causing this? We were out of town and it wasn't used for a few weeks.

This was a used machine and we had to have a service tech out to replace so things, but he got the heads working and it was printing ok until we had to leave it sitting for a few weeks.

Your print head dry out, cause is: no use! you should detach the tube between the pump and the caps, the one of magenta and yellow, insert a seringe in the tube (that comes from the cap) and suck some cc´s of ink, .then atatch the tube again and run one or two powerful cleanings, then run the test. A smart advise is: never turn off the machine in the main power, the machine when in stand by, does automatic a check and a cleaning process from time to time if needed.

I have a roland sp-540v, trying to print on banner material with black backing. Keeps on getting message to setup sheet while everything is loaded correct. The sensor is probably not picking up black.


Could you try
(1) Temporarily stick a white strip over the sensor where it detects the media or
(2) On the length of the media or
(3) Even staple same sized white media below the black one which you can un-staple after printing.
kindly ignore if these are (s) tupid answers

Printer doesn't recognize magenta cartridge.


You need a new printer head, point blank- this is for the average person not cost effective because of the price of print head if the particular one is even available, No way to pin point what cause it-maybe the company that made it can- so if you repair it may happen again since we don't know what caused it in the first place- People dont repair printers they replace them, my 200$ printer was now 50$ and hard to find and the print head was 80$ online only...guess what i did. You cant sell it because no one wants is--best bet is trash and buy a new one--Good Luck.

Even with new inks, magenta and yellow won't print


The ink you replaced costs as much as a new printer that comes with ink. Get a new one.

you should have to use the syringe method to **** the ink before anything, then make a powerful cleaning, test, you may have to do it several cleanings and should be solved.

I have a Roland Versacamm and as it's printing an image that is supposed to be a rectangle shape 40"x60"...as it prints out the image is not straight it actually looks wavey like a flag? The printer was OK...


this sounds like a scan motor error. clean encoding strip and test. If still wavy remove scan sensor the one that reads the encoder strip, clean with alcohol, replace and test. if still bad replace encoder strip and the eye that reads it.
