  3. Having a problem with a line in the print on a roland SP300?

    I am getting a line perpendicular to the direction the print head moves across the print on all four colors (cmyk), the yellow/magenta almost line up and the black/cyan are very close if not in line, the line is about an eight of an inch thick and will run as tall as the print cutting right...

  7. dealing with gradients

    Actually we have a problem with this too. Changing colors slightly helps as does setting blends to "super". I can not remember but on one I think we changed from FXPress to randon diffusion and that helped too but it was a long time ago, I right be wrong about that. Good luck.
  8. do you use after market ink's

    We triied a third party ink, it seemed ok at first, but then we noticed it was not as durable as the max inks and then very consistently we found nozzle plugging toward the end of the ink cartridge, this was such a pain we threw a way the cartriges with over 10-25% of the ink left.

    James I have quit using alta inks as I was having some equipment problems. Once the cartridge was 75% or so consumed, I would get nozzle plugging on the color associated with the near empty cartridge (s). After finally figuring out what was going on I disposed of all the alta ink I had left...

  14. Roland SP540 vs. VP540

    When a solid color is printed, it can have line that run the same direction that the printhead moves (from right to left), this is called banding. In stead of a nice solid color you have "bands" in the color. We get very little banding and there are things you can do to minimize it. More heads =...
  15. Pricing in Hard Times

    My prices definitely are influenced by the economy. People out here are very conservative, and there is just way too many people in the sign business, as well as businesses that do some aspect of the sign business as a sideline.

  19. Yellow not printing on test print? Help Please.

  20. Yellow not printing on test print? Help Please.

    I am not getting any yellow ink to print on the test print. I have soaked the head and changed the cap station with no luck. Is this a bad damper? How can I tell? Is it something else perhaps? Thank you for any help, suggestions or even guesses.
