Customer Question
Roland Vp 540 -...

Roland Vp 540 - black channel converted to run with Eco Sol Max2 White for specific project. Media is optically clear cast, unlaminated.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Roland? What have you tried so far?

Ink is not keying onto media properly and easily scratches. Initial prints from June / July were good, but recent prints can scratch with fingernail and wash off completely with little effort. client does not want laminate. Other print suppliers using latex (which we dont have) and get good results on same media. Question is is the problem the ink or the media ? Media supplier points to printer and ink, printer supplier points to media

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Roland Vp540 not designed for white printing, ink cartridge if vigorously shaken up every day before printing starts. Daily and weekly maintenance done on heads and wipers etc. New head and ink lines and dampers were installed when the white was installed, and all have been flushed again by technician recently No evidence of buildup

This may be caused by a bad batch of ink if it worked ok previously.

Try using ink from a fresh batch and let me know if there is any improvement.

If fresh ink and cleaning the head does not work, then there may be a buildup of old ink in the tubes which will require deep cleaning.
