2-1 Installing Ink Cartridges
Store ink cartridges out of the reach
of children.
NOTICE
If ink contacts the eyes, flush
immediately with water.
Do not remove any ink cartridges except when shipping the FJ-500/400.
If ink runs out, replace with a special ink cartridge of the same type and color of ink (see "3-1 Replacing the
Ink Cartridges"). Do not attempt to refill and reuse an empty ink cartridge.
If an ink cartridge is removed, replace it immediately with a new one.
Do not attempt to disassemble an ink cartridge.
Unused ink cartridges should be stored unopened at a temperature of -20°C (-4°F) to 40°C (104°F).
If an ink cartridge is dropped, the shock due to the fall may damage the ink cartridge and make it unusable.
- If any ink gets on your hands or clothing, wash it off as soon as possible. Ink stains may become difficult to remove
if allowed to stand.
- Once an ink cartridge has been installed, do not remove it until the ink has been used up. Frequent insertion and
removal may allow air to enter the ink tube and result in a drop in printing quality due to dot drop-out or the like.

- When transparent material is loaded, it is necessary to set [SHEET TYPE] to [CLEAR]. For more information, see
"4-6 What to Do If..." ( [SHEET SET ERROR SET AGAIN] appears and the material cannot be detected even
when the [SETUP] key is pressed).
- When loading thicker material or material that is prone to warping, it may be necessary to adjust the head height.
For more information, see "4-2 Adjusting the Height of the Printing Head."
- When changing to a different type of material, it may be necessary to perform feed correction or bidirectional
correction. For more information, see "2-5 Printing -- Making Corrections for Printing."
- If the sides of the material have warped, then bend back the warp or feed the warped portion to the front and
perform setup again. Attempting to print with warped material may scrape the printing heads or cause the material
to jam. If the printing heads become damaged or soiled as a result, printing accuracy may suffer.

2-5 Printing
NOTICE
Opening the front cover while printing is in progress causes an emergency stop. This means that printing may
not be carried out correctly even if operation is resumed, due to drop-out or misalignment of the image.
To pause printing for any other reason than an emergency stop, press the [PAUSE] key.
Note pressing the [PAUSE] key to pause operation may result in differing image quality before and after the
pause. It is a good idea to avoid pausing operation while printing is in progress whenever possible.
If you will leave the printing head being uncapped for a long time (for example, open the front cover while
printing is made on the middle of platen), printing heads may get clogging and, in some case it results unrecoverable damage to the printing head.
Do not use the [ ] key to return a portion of the material that's already been printed. The pinch rollers may
pass over the printed surface, smudging the ink.
Also, do not use the [ ] and [ ] keys to feed and return unprinted portions many times. The grit rollers
may make tracks on the material, resulting in poor printing precision.
During printing, do not touch the portion of the material that's already been discharged.
Doing so may obstruct material feed or cause the material to rub against the heads, which may result in a paper
jam or damage to the heads.
About Roland COLORCHOICE®
Roland COLORCHOICE®, which is on the included Roland COLORCHOICE® CD-ROM, is a software raster image processor, or RIP. It
takes printing data such as a PostScript file received from a program, performs raster image processing on the computer, and outputs the
data to the FJ-500/400.
(Raster image processing converts images and text in a format such as PostScript to bitmap data.)
For more information about Roland COLORCHOICE®, see the Roland COLORCHOICE® User's Manual with the machine.
Downloading Printing Data

About the [EMPTY MODE]
When replacement of the ink cartridge becomes necessary while printing is in progress, this setting determines whether printing
continues or pauses.
This setting is used when the ink cartridge cannot be changed immediately during printing, such as during unattended operation at night.
[LATER] causes printing to continue without pause even if ink refilling becomes necessary. Printing continues with the small amount of
ink remaining, so the printed image may become faint as the ink runs out. In general, it should possible to perform about 1 m2 (10 ft2) of
printing once this message appears, although the actual varies widely according to the amount of ink needed for the particular image.
Printing is continued only for the data currently being printed. Operation stops after one image is output.
[PROMPT] causes operation to pause immediately when the ink cartridge needs to be changed. Printing is resumed by replacing the
cartridge . Please note, however, that the colors of an image in progress may no longer be perfectly matched if the unit is allowed to
remain paused for two or three hours before resuming printing.

2 Basic Operation
Setting the Printing Mode
Setting the Printing Mode and Printing Direction
Before start to print, set the printing mode and printing direction.
On the control panel, press the [PRINT QUALITY] key and specify the printing mode and direction of printing.
- When you can make the settings for the printing mode and printing direction on the computer, the computer's
settings take priority.
- The optimal printing mode differs according to the material you are using.
- Printing when using eight-color pigmented ink ([PIGMENT 8COLOR]) is taken as a guide for usage of the various
modes. ([PIGMENT 8COLOR] obtains better image quality than [PIGMENT 4COLOR] or [DYE 4COLOR], but
output times are longer.)
Printing quality, output time, and the amount of data processing in the computer vary according to the printing
mode and the material used. Choose a mode that matches the task.
- The printing time for the same original data becomes increasingly longer in this sequence: DRAFT, NORMAL,
vNORMAL, SUPER, vSUPER and vPHOTO. Also, because the size of the output file grows larger, the processing
time for creating the output file also becomes longer.
It's also necessary to ensure enough memory on the computer.
Printing Mode
Printing Direction
vPHOTO:
This is suitable for printing photographs with the highest image
quality.
However, because the amount of data becomes large and
printing time is longer, this is not suited to large-size output.
UNI-DIRECTION:
Unidirectional printing.
Printing is performed as the carriage moves from right to left.
Printing quality is better than with [BI-DIRECTION].
vSUPER:
This is suitable for printing photographs.
vNORMAL:
This is suitable for printing posters and the like. It's also suitable
for applications such as color proofs.
BI-DIRECTION (factory default):
Bidirectional printing.
Printing is performed as the carriage moves from right to left,
and also as it returns from left to right.
Printing speed is faster than with [UNI-DIRECTION].
SUPER:
This is suitable for printing posters and signs.
NORMAL (Factory default):
This is suitable for printing signs at comparatively high speed.
DRAFT:
This is suitable for printing large-size signs. It's also suitable for
applications such as checking layout.

2 Basic Operation
Making Corrections for Printing
Feed Correction
This corrects for errors in the amount of feed of the grit rollers due the type of material.
Be sure to make this setting when you have replaced the material with a different type.
Correcting the amount of feed improves the dot-positioning accuracy in the feed direction, which can help enhance image quality.
- When correcting the amount of feed, set the same conditions for the type of material used and the configuration of
the material (roll material or sheet material) as when actually performing printing.
- When performing test printing for feed correction, load the material correctly (see "2-3 Loading the Material"). If
the material is not loaded correctly, an accurate correction value may not be output.
- When you can set the error for the amount of feed for the grit rollers on the computer, the computer's setting takes
priority.

3-1 Replacing the Ink Cartridges
Store ink cartridges out of the reach
of children.
NOTICE
If ink contacts the eyes, flush
immediately with water.
Do not remove any ink cartridges except when shipping the FJ-500/400.
Use only the type of filled ink specified for the machine.
If ink runs out, replace immediately with an ink cartridge designed especially for the FJ-500/400. Do not
attempt to refill and reuse an empty ink cartridge.
If an ink cartridge is removed, replace it immediately with a new one.
Do not attempt to disassemble an ink cartridge.
Unused ink cartridges should be stored unopened at a temperature of -20°C (-4°F) to 40°C (104°F).
If an ink cartridge is dropped, the shock due to the fall may damage the ink cartridge and make it unusable.
When removing an ink cartridge, do not rush. Detach the cartridge gently. Sudden movement when detaching
may cause ink to be spilled.
- If any ink gets on your hands or clothing, wash it off as soon as possible. Ink stains may become difficult to remove
if allowed to stand.
- Once an ink cartridge has been installed, do not remove it until the ink has been used up. Frequent insertion and
removal may allow air to enter the ink tube and result in a drop in printing quality due to dot drop-out or the like.

3-3 Cleaning the Printing Heads
Switching on the sub power automatically performs maintenance operations, including cleaning of the printing head. This means that
there is normally no need to perform cleaning otherwise.
If drop-out occurs with printed images, clean the printing head.
* After cleaning, carry out a printing test. Load material.
Perform head cleaning only when there is dot drop-out (gaps) or printing becomes faint.
Performing head cleaning more than necessary subjects the heads to wear and consumes ink. In particular, cleaning
performed at the [POWERFUL] menu for [HEAD CLEANING] can cause premature head wear and consume large
amounts of ink. (Performing cleaning at the [POWERFUL] consumes approximately 45 cc of ink for each group.
This is because all ink in the ink tubes is discharged and replaced with fresh ink.)

If image drop-out persists even after performing cleaning with the cleaning kit, contact your authorized Roland DG Corp. dealer or
Roland DG Corp. service center.
The heads are consumable parts. The useful life is six billion shots per nozzle.
Cleaning using the cleaning kit should be carried out when automatic cleaning and forced cleaning from the
[HEAD CLEANING] menu fail to correct image drop-out.
Before starting cleaning, read through this section carefully to familiarize yourself with the procedures, then
carry out the cleaning operations quickly.
Cleaning is performed while the caps on the printing heads are detached, so cleaning must be completed
before the heads dry out. It is suggested that cleaning be completed in ten minutes or less.
If it appears that cleaning operations may take more than ten minutes, stop the cleaning operations and
follow the steps below.

4-2 Adjusting the Height of the Printing Head
When using material that is thick or susceptible to warping, material feed may not proceed smoothly, or the material may jam. When
such material is loaded, you can adjust the height of the printing head.
This should normally be left at position 1 (low). If printing results in material feed that is not smooth because of problems such as the
material jamming or the head catching on the material, position at 2 (high).
When the height of the printing head has been adjusted, it is necessary to perform bidirectional correction (only when the printing
direction for [PRINT QUALITY] has been set to [BI-DIRECTION]). For more information about bidirectional correction, see "2-5
Printing - Making Corrections for Printing - Bidirectional Correction."

[EMPTY MODE]: When replacement of the ink cartridge becomes
necessary while printing is in progress, this setting determines whether
printing continues or pauses.
This setting is used when the ink cartridge cannot be changed immediately during printing, such as during unattended operation at night.
[LATER] causes printing to continue without pause even if ink refilling
becomes necessary. Printing continues with the small amount of ink
remaining, so the printed image may become faint as the ink runs out.
In general, it should possible to perform about 1 m2 (10 ft2) of printing
once this message appears, although the actual varies widely according
to the amount of ink needed for the particular image. Printing is
continued only for the data currently being printed. Operation stops
after one image is output.
[PROMPT] causes operation to pause immediately when the ink
cartridge needs to be changed. Printing is resumed by replacing the
cartridge. Please note, however, that the colors of an image in progress
may no longer be perfectly matched if the unit is allowed to remain
paused for two or three hours before resuming printing.

When processing six-color printing data as KCMY + OrGr (black,
cyan, magenta, and yellow plus orange and green, choose [OR-GR].
When processing the six-color printing data as KCMY + LcLm (black,
cyan, magenta, and yellow plus light cyan and light magenta), choose
[Lc-Lm].
* Performing printing using six-color data for an older model requires
taking into account the differences in resolution and the amount of
ink received, and adjusting the output profile appropriately. Note that
the output results will not be exactly equivalent to those obtained
with the older model.
Also, if the FJ-500/400 is set to a printing mode that is not
compatible with the older model, correct output results may not be
obtained even when six-color printing data is sent.
The only printing mode on the FJ-500/400 that is compatible with
older models is NORMAL.
[OR-GR]: In the six-color data, the two colors other than KCMY
(black, cyan, magenta, and yellow) are processed as OrGr (orange and

4-6 Network Connection
The FJ-500/400 has a built-in print server (Roland-PrintServer) as a network interface. You can connect the print server to a 10Base-T or
100Base-TX network.
When you use the print server, you can send printing data to the FJ-500/400 from anywhere on the network.
In order to send printing data from the included Roland COLORCHOICE® (software raster image processor) through the network to the
FJ-500/400, you need to make the setting for the IP address in the print server.
This section describes how to make the setting for the IP address in the print server.
For detailed information about the print server and network connections, see the "Roland-PrintServer Installation Manual" (PDF file) and
the "Roland-PrintServer User Manual" (PDF file) on the included Roland-PrintServer CD-ROM.
"Software Quick Installation," which appears in the "Roland-PrintServer User Manual" (PDF file), is not included with the FJ-500/400.
How to View the Manuals (PDF Files)
The included Roland-PrintServer CD-ROM contains the following PDF files.
To read the following files on the CD-ROM, open them directly from the CD-ROM, or copy them to your hard disk first.

1 Confirm the IP addresses of the computer and the print server.
For a TCP/IP network that is already configured
Consult your network administrator.
For a TCP/IP network that is completely unconfigured
* The explanations in this section assume that there is not connection to another network.
Decide on the IP address of the computer sending data directly to the FJ-500/400 (Windows 98/95, Windows NT 4.0, or Macintosh) and
the IP address of the print server.
For Windows
IP Address: 192.168.0.XXX

Search domains: Leave it blank
* Decide on a value (any value) of from 1 to 254 for the "XXX" portion of each of the IP addresses. Each of these values must be unique
-- that is, not duplicated for any of the computers or print servers.
For instance, you may decide on an IP address of 192.168.0.100 for the computer sending data and an address of 192.168.0.123 for the
print server. The explanations in this section use these IP addresses.

Clean, attractive printing is impossible
If drop-out occurs with printed images.
Clean the printing heads (see "3-3 Cleaning the Printing Heads").
Is the surface of the platen dirty or scratched?
Clean the platen (see “3-7 Cleaning”).
Is the material dirty?
Remove superficial soiling, then load the material.
Is the material damaged?
Clean, attractive printing is not possible if the material is damaged or warped.
Use care to keep materials from being damaged while in storage.
During printing, was the front cover opened (executing an emergency stop) or the [PAUSE] key pressed?
If operation is stopped or paused while printing is in progress, the quality of the image before and after the interruption may differ. It is a
good idea to avoid pausing operation while printing is in progress whenever possible.
Is thick material in use, or does the surface of the material rub against the printing heads?
If material feed is not smooth because the material catches on the head, then adjust the height of the printing heads (see "4-2 Adjusting
the Height of the Printing Head").
When the height of the printing head has been adjusted, it is necessary to perform bidirectional correction (only when the printing
direction for [PRINT QUALITY] has been set to [BI-DIRECTION]). For more information about bidirectional correction, see "2-5
Printing - Making Corrections for Printing - Bidirectional Correction."
If you are using material that becomes uneven when printed, then perform unidirectional printing. With unidirectional printing,
unevenness is less conspicuous than bidirectional printing.
Also, if the printing heads scrape the material even when the heads are raised, then do not use that material.
Doing so may not only cause paper jams, but may soil the material (the printing surface) and impair printing accuracy.
If the type of material was changed, was feed correction performed?
Correcting the amount of feed improves the dot-positioning accuracy in the feed direction, which can help enhance image quality.
If the type of material was changed, refer to "2-5 Printing - Making Corrections for Printing - Feed Correction" and perform correction
for feed.
During printing, ink drips from the carriage and soils the material (the
printing surface).
The following may cause ink to drip on the material during printing.
- Dust or fiber-containing grime around the heads may have absorbed ink.
- The heads scraping the material may have caused ink to fail to be discharged, resulting in ink buildup in the heads.
If this happens, refer to "3-3 Cleaning the Printing Heads -- Using the Cleaning Kit to Clean the Printing Heads" and clean the heads.
Also, before you start printing, perform a printing test to make sure there is no dot drop-out.
Printing goes beyond the loaded material
Is [SHEET TYPE] set to [CLEAR]?
When [SHEET TYPE] has been set to [CLEAR], no detection of the material width is performed when material is loaded (printable
width set to maximum).
If transparent material has been loaded, specify a printing area that matches the actual material width (see "2-5 Printing -- Printing at the
Desired Location -- Setting the printing area in the left-right direction (the direction of carriage movement)").
If opaque material has been loaded, set [SHEET TYPE] to [OPAQUE].
Is the reflective tape dirty?
If the reflective tape becomes soiled, the width of the material cannot be detected correctly.
If the tape becomes dirty, wipe gently with a cloth moistened with water or ethyl alcohol.
Has the material been loaded at an angle?
If the loaded material is not straight, it may extend outside the printing area.
Refer to "2-3 Loading the Material" and load the material correctly.

Has the printing area been set to fill the material entirely?
When setting the printing area in the left-right direction (the direction of carriage movement) at the [PRINT AREA] menu, leave a margin
on either side. If the printing area is set to extend all the way to the left right and right edges, a small amount of misalignment may result
in printing beyond the edge of the material.
Material feed is not smooth (slippage occurs)
Is thick material being used?
If the surface of the material rubs against the printing heads and smooth feed is impossible, then adjust the height of the printing heads
(see "4-2 Adjusting the Height of the Printing Head").
When the height of the printing head has been adjusted, it is necessary to perform bidirectional correction (only when the printing
direction for [PRINT QUALITY] has been set to [BI-DIRECTION]). For more information about bidirectional correction, see "2-5
Printing - Making Corrections for Printing - Bidirectional Correction."
If using sheet material, does the loaded material contact areas such as the stand's media flange?
If the sheet material contacts the media flange or the like at the back of the unit, shift the retainer to a location where the material doesn't
make contact.
If the material touches an obstruction while printing is in progress, normal material feed is not performed, and image quality may suffer
or the material may jam.
Is the sheet material loaded at an angle? Are the left and right edges of the material not straight?
If the material is loaded at an angle or if the left and right sides of the material are not cut straight, the location of the edges may shift as
feed is carried out. This may cause the material to rub against the inner side of the FJ-500/400 or be displaced from the printing area.
Is the roll material loaded correctly?
If the roll material is not loaded correctly, the material may come loose or advance at an angle. Refer to "2-3 Loading the Material
Loading Roll Material" and load the material correctly.

Printed lines are misaligned
[Example]
OK: Correct
Not OK: Single lines not produced
If misalignment like in the example occurs when the printing direction for [PRINT QUALITY] has been set to [BI-DIRECTION]
(bidirectional), then carry out correction at the [BIDIRECTION] menu (see "2-5 Printing - Making Corrections for Printing - Bidirectional Correction").
Be sure to make this setting when you have replaced the material with a different type, or if you have adjusted the head height and
printing is misaligned.
The material cannot be separated
Is a blade installed in the separating knife?
If no blade is installed, then install one (see "3-6 How to Replace the Separating Knife").
Is the blade dull or broken?
If the blade has become dull or broken, replace it with the replacement blade included with the unit (see "3-6 How to Replace the
Separating Knife").
* Some materials cannot be separated due to their composition.
The material cannot be separated automatically
Has the material-cutting command been set to "enable" with the driver?
When the material-cutting command has not been set to "enable" with the driver, automatic separation of the material is not performed.
The printing length is not accurate
Did you correct the amount of feed for the grit rollers?
To correct the amount of feed for the grit rollers, refer to "2-5 Printing Making Corrections for Printing Feed Correction" and make the
correction to match the material you're using.
