SOLJET SJ-1000 EX
Yes, it’s big. Jaw-dropping, tail-kicking, 104” you-gotta-be-kidding big. And it’s fast. As in how-come-that-media-never-stops-moving
fast. But the big news comes when you move up to take a closer look at the print quality. And then you realize the best feature
of all...it’s a Roland. On a grand scale. The SJ-1000 is the widest and fastest Roland printer ever...ideal for billboards, banners,
vehicle wraps, and other big jobs. Low volatility Eco-SOL INK allows you to print durable, photorealistic graphics on both coated

Important Notes on Handling and Use
This machine is a precision device. To ensure the full performance of this machine, be sure to observe the
following important points. Failure to observe these may not only result in loss of performance, but may also
cause malfunction or breakdown.
Printer unit
This Machine Is a Precision Device
➢ Handle carefully, and never subject the machine to impact or excessive force.
➢ Never needlessly put your hand or fingers inside the cover, the ink-cartridge ports, or other internal areas of the
machine.
Install in a Suitable Location
➢ Install in a location having the specified temperature and relative humidity.
➢ Install in a quiet, stable location offering good operating conditions.
The Print Heads Are Delicate
➢ Never needlessly touch or allow media to scrape them. Failure to handle with care may cause damage.
➢ The print heads may be damaged if allowed to dry out. The machine prevents desiccation automatically, but improper operation may render this feature inoperative. Operate properly, as specified in this manual.
➢ Never allow the machine to stand with an ink cartridge removed. Remaining ink in the printer may harden and clog
the print heads.
➢ The print heads are components that wear out. Periodic replacement is required, with the frequency of replacement
depending on use.
This Machine Becomes Hot
➢ Never cover the ventilation holes with cloth, tape, or anything else.
When Moving the Machine
➢ Special preparations are required when moving the machine. Please check with your authorized Roland DG Corp.
dealer or Roland DG Corp. service center ahead of time.
Ink cartridges
Ink Cartridges Come in Various Types
➢ Use a type that is compatible with the printer. Also, be sure to use only genuine items from Roland DG Corp.
Never Subject to Impact or Attempt to Disassemble
➢ Never drop or shake forcefully. The impact may rupture the internal pouch and cause the ink to leak.
➢ Never attempt to disassemble.
➢ Never attempt to refill the ink.
➢ If ink gets on your hands or clothing, wash it off as soon as possible. Removal may become difficult if allowed to
stand.
Storage
➢ Store unopened in a well-ventilated location at a temperature of -20 to 40˚C (-4 to 104˚F).

Switching the Power On and Off
This machine has four power switches. You switch on all four when using the machine.
When you finish printing, you turn off switches 2, 3, and 4 as required. You also flip down the loading lever to the
rear of the machine.
WARNING
When leaving the printer unattended after completing operation, be sure to turn
off the power to the machine.
Failure to do so may lead to overheating of the platen or dryer, resulting to fire. Also, inadvertent contact by someone other than the operator may result in sudden operation of the machine, leading to injury or burns.
We recommend leaving this switched on at all times during ordinary
day-to-day operation. (The machine monitors the dryness of the print
heads which this switch is on.)
➀ Main power switch

Turn this switch on after
closing the front cover. To
turn it off, hold down the
switch for one second or
longer.
➂ Power switches for

2-1 Switching the Power On and Off
The Power-saving Feature
This machine is provided with a power-saving feature that switches to a low-power "sleep mode" when a fixed
interval passes with no operation. The factory default for the time after which the machine switches to the sleep
mode is 30 minutes.
You can change the setting for the time of the shift to the sleep mode. You can also switch off the power-saving
feature.
☞ p 79 "Setting the Interval until Activation of the Sleep Mode"
☞ p 80 "Deactivating the Sleep Mode"
When the machine is in the sleep mode, the POWER light flashes slowly and the heating devices stop.
Using the control panel or performing operations such as sending printing data from the computer (when media
is loaded) restore the machine to its normal mode.
To reduce power consumption and prevent problems such as overheating, we recommend leaving the powersaving feature on and setting the activation time for the sleep mode to 30 minutes or less.

2-2 Loading and Cutting Off Media
How to Load Media
WARNING
When loading or moving roll media, be sure to use load-handling equipment such
as a lifter and carry out operations with care to prevent falls or other accidents.
Some roll media may weigh about 100 kg (220 lb.). Attempting manual lifting operations that
tax your strength may cause physical injury. Also, if dropped, such items may cause unexpected
injury, such as crushing of the feet.
WARNING
Never use media less than 1,220 mm (48 inches) in width.
The platen may overheat, resulting in fire or the release of toxic gases.
CAUTION
Be sure to perform operations as specified by these instructions, and never touch
any area not specified in the instructions.
Sudden movement of the machine may cause injury.
Never overly loosen the screws for the end caps.
When an end cap screw is loosened completely, it stops
turning. Never apply more force beyond that point. Attempting to turn the screw with undue force may damage the component securing the screw, making return to
the original state impossible.

2-3 Settings of Preheater, Print Heater and Dryer
What Are the Preheater, Print Heater and Dryer?
This machine is equipped with three devices for heating media. You use these mainly to improve ink adhesion
and dry the ink. You can adjust the temperature settings to match the type of media and printing speed.
Preheater
This device warms the media before
printing.
Print heater
This device is used mainly to improve
ink adhesion.
Dryer
You use this to speed up drying of the
ink.
WARNING
The platen and dryer become hot. Exercise caution to avoid fire or burns.
WARNING
Never leave media loaded in the machine when printing is not being performed.
The continued application of heat at a single location may cause fire or produce toxic gases.
When printing is not being performed, switch off the power or remove any loaded media.
WARNING
Never use media that cannot withstand the heat.
Doing so may result in fire or the release of toxic gases, or may degrade the media.

2-3 Settings of Preheater, Print Heater and Dryer
General Guide for the Preset Temperatures
The optimal temperature settings vary according to the type of media, differences in the print mode, and other
factors. Use the following as a general guide and adjust accordingly.
General Guide for Adjustment
Preheater
Set this to a temperature that is the same as or lower than the temperature of the print heater.
You use the preheater mainly to heat media gradually. This is because media becomes more likely to shrink or
wrinkle if heated suddenly.
Print heater
You use this mainly to improve ink adhesion and inhibit smudging.
If the ink forms lumps or smudges, raise the temperature. Note, however, that a temperature that is too high may
degrade the media or cause it to wrinkle.
Dryer
When ink drying is poor, raise the temperature. Note, however, that a temperature that is too high may degrade
the media or cause it to wrinkle.
The relationship between the print mode and temperature
If smudging or poor drying occur even after raising the temperature, try using a print mode offering higher image
quality. Conversely, when you want to use a faster print mode, raise the temperature.
Amount of ink
When you change the amount of ink using the settings for your RIP program, adjusting this may yield better
results. If problems such as smudging persist even after raising the temperature, try reducing the amount of ink.
Examples of Preset Temperatures
Media
Type: Scrim banner (PVC)
Thickness: 300 to 400 µm (12 to 16 mil)
Type: Marking film (PVC, with adhesive)
Thickness: 60 to 100 µm (2.5 to 4 mil, not including backing paper)
Temperature
Preheater: 45˚C (112˚F)
Print heater: 45˚C (112˚F)
Dryer: 50˚C (122˚F)
Preheater: 40˚C (104˚F)
Print heater: 40˚C (104˚F)
Dryer: 45˚C (112˚F)
➢ These are only rough estimates. Make adjustments to match the media you're using.
➢ Using the heating devices does not necessarily make it possible to apply ink to every kind of media. Be sure to test
in advance.
➢ Results may vary greatly depending on the print mode and other factors. Make settings suited to the media.
➢ When suggested settings for temperature, print mode, and other values are given, use the suggested settings.

3-5 When Not in Use for a Prolonged Period
Keep Performing Maintenance
Switch On the Power Once a Month
Switch on the sub power once a month. When you turn on the power, the machine automatically performs some
operations such as those to keep the print heads from drying out. Allowing the machine to stand completely
unused for a prolonged period may damage the print heads, so be sure to switch on the power to perform these
automatic operations.
Keep at a Constant Temperature and Relative Humidity
Even when the machine is not in use, keep it at a temperature of 5 to 40˚C (41 to 104˚F) and a relative humidity
of 20 to 80% (with no condensation). Temperatures that are too high may degrade the ink and cause malfunction. Temperatures that are too low may cause the ink to freeze and damage the heads.
Alarm Feature
PRESS THE POWER
KEY TO CLEAN
This feature is to remind you to switch on the sub power once a month. When
the machine remains unused for about one month, this screen appears and a
warning beep sounds. If this screen appears, switch on the sub power. When
maintenance operations finish, switch off the sub power.
This feature operates when the printer's main power is turned on. We recommend leaving on just the main
power to the printer even when the machine is to remain out of use for a prolonged period.

Description
The bidirectional-printing mode (in which the heads perform printing during both their outbound pass and
return pass) offers the advantage of being fast, but subtle misalignment occurs between the outbound and return
passes. The procedure to correct this and eliminate misalignment is bidirectional correction. This misalignment
varies according to the head height and the thickness of the media, so we recommend performing correction to
match the media you're using.
Redoing correction every time you change the media is extremely troublesome. You can take correction values
that you have acquired and save them in the machine's memory for easy access whenever they are needed.

4-3 Optimizing Printing to Match Media Thickness
Description
The movement transfer of media experiences subtle changes due to the thickness of the media and the temperature of the heating devices. When the movement distance becomes discrepant, horizontal stripes are more likely
to occur during printing. We recommend performing correction to match the media you're using and the heating
devices. Repeat the process of printing a test pattern and entering a correction value a number of times to find
the optimize value.
Printing this test pattern using parameters identical to those for actual printing. Also, using material such as
media scraps that have passed through the printer may not yield correct results.
Note, however, that you can also make this setting on the computer (by, for example, choosing the media type in
the RIP program you are using). Use this feature when you want to make the setting on the printer, without
changing any settings on the computer. When you have made the setting on the computer, the computer's setting
is used and the printer's setting is ignored.

Description
Reducing the width of head movement to the minimum required width speeds up printing. This is effective
mainly when you use media of narrow width. Because the media moves more quickly, the effectiveness of the
heating devices also changes. It may be necessary to change the preset temperatures.
"MEDIA" matches the range of head movement to the width of the media. The parameters for the heating devices
change according to the media width.
"OFF" matches the range of head movement to the printing data. Movement is limited to the minimum amount
necessary, and this can be expected to yield the fastest printing. Note, however, that because the speed of media
movement is no longer constant, colors may be uneven.
"FULL" makes the speed of media movement constant at all times.

Setting this to [ENABLE] automatically displays [SHEET REMAIN] whenever you change the media and finish
setup. This makes it impossible to go on to the next operation unless you redo the setting for the amount remaining. This can be useful for keeping you from forgetting to redo the setting when you change the media.
When you set this to [ENABLE], however, be sure to also set the [SHEET TYPE] menu item to [OPAQUE]. When
[SHEET TYPE] is set to [CLEAR], then [SHEET REMAIN] is not displayed automatically, regardless of the setting
for [SET AT LOADING].

5-2 Attractive Printing Is Impossible
Printed Results Are Coarse or Contain Horizontal Stripes
Do the print heads show dot drop-out?
Carry out a printing test and make sure no dot drop-out
occurs. If dot drop-out is present, perform head cleaning.
☞ p 44 "Printing Tests and Cleaning"
☞ p 53 "When Head Cleaning Is Not Effective"
Have you carried out feed correction?
Large misalignment in the amount of feed of the media
may result in printing that seems coarse or contains horizontal stripes. Either make the setting on the computer
to match the type of media you're using, or make the
setting for correction on the printer.
☞ p 73 "Performing Feed Correction to Alleviate Horizontal Bands and the Like"
Have you carried out bidirectional correction?
When you are performing bidirectional printing, use the
[ADJUST BI-DIR] menu item to carry out correction. The
optimal adjustment value may vary, depending mainly
on the thickness of the media. Set or select an adjustment value that is suited to the media.
☞ p 69 "Correcting for Misalignment in Bidirectional
Printing"
Are the heating devices at a suitable temperature?
If the ink forms lumps or smudges, raise the temperature. Note, however, that a temperature that is too high
may degrade the media or cause it to wrinkle.
☞ p 40 "Settings of Preheater, Print Heater and Dryer"
Is the temperature of the room too low?
The heating devices may not warm up sufficiently when
the temperature is 20˚C (68˚F) or lower. Also, even when
the heating devices reach their preset temperatures, adequate effectiveness may not be apparent if the media is
thoroughly chilled. Before printing, allow the media to
come to room temperature.
Is the print mode suitable?
When you are using uncoated media and attractive printing is not obtained even after you have raised the temperature of the preheater or print heater, try using a
higher-quality print mode. Also, using the menu on the
printer unit to make the setting for [SCAN INTERVAL]
may improve printing quality.
☞ p 75 "Printing Hard-to-dry Media"
Depending on the media, smudging may occur when
using a high-quality print mode, and results may also
vary greatly depending on the settings of your RIP program (such as the color-profile selection). Make settings
suited to the media you're using.
or where it may wobble or experience vibration. Also
make sure that the print heads are not exposed to moving air. These factors may lead to missing dots or reduced
printing quality.
Is the media loaded and set up correctly?
If the media is not loaded and set up correctly, media
feed may not be smooth, or printing may be adversely
affected.
☞ p 97 "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Colors Are Unstable or Uneven
Did you shake the ink cartridges gently before installing them?
Before you install a new ECO-SOL INK cartridge, gently
shake the cartridge.
Is the media wrinkled?
If the media is wrinkled and comes loose from the platen,
colors may be uneven or printing reduce may suffer.
☞ p 97 "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Was printing paused partway through?
When printing is paused, the coloring at the seam may
be altered when printing resumes. Avoid pausing printing. With the factory-default settings, printing pauses
when an ink cartridge runs empty. Before you perform
lengthy printing, check the amount of ink remaining in
the ink cartridges.
Printing may also pause when data is not sent from the
computer quickly enough. We recommend not performing any other tasks with the computer while printing is
in progress.
Are the operating parameters set to appropriate
values?
Depending on the settings for such menu items as [FULL
WIDTH S] and [PERIODIC CL.], uneven colors may occur. If the settings have been changed, try restoring them
to their default values.
☞ p 76 "Speeding Up Printing for Narrow Media"
☞ p 77 "Keeping Media from Being Soiled by Ink
Drips"
Is the printer installed in a level and stable location?
Never install the machine in a location where it is tilted
or where it may wobble or experience vibration. Also,
ensure that the printing heads are not exposed to wind
or blown air. These factors may lead to missing dots or
reduced printing quality.

5-2 Attractive Printing Is Impossible
The Media Becomes Soiled When Printed
Do the print heads contact the media?
The height of the print heads may be too low. Also, if the
media is not loaded and set up correctly, it may wrinkle
or come loose and strike the heads.
☞ p 97 "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
☞ p 68 "Adjusting Head Height to Match Media Thickness"
Are the print heads dirty?
The following may cause ink to drip on the media during printing.
• Buildup of fibrous dust (lint) around the heads
• Ink transferred to the heads due to rubbing against the
media.
If this happens, clean the heads using the cleaning kit.
We recommend carrying out periodic head cleaning.
☞ p 55 "Cleaning the Heads Using the Cleaning Kit"
Are the pinch rollers dirty?
Periodically clean the pinch rollers.

5-5 Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable
A variety of problems can occur if the media feed is not
smooth.This can cause such problems as poor printing quality,
contact with the media by the print heads, misaligned positioning, media jams, or poor take-up. Take action as follows.
The Media Is Not Straight
Is the media loaded and set up straight and securely?
Feed is not smooth when the media is not straight or
tensioned unevenly on the left and right. Reload the
media.
Media Wrinkles or Shrinks
Is the media loaded and set up straight and securely?
Feed is not smooth when the media is not straight or
tensioned unevenly on the left and right. Reload the

Are the feed dancer rollers level?
If they are not level, the media may become crooked or
wrinkle. Adjust the position of the balance weights to
match the width of the media.
Are the feed dancer rollers level?
If they are not level, the media may become crooked or

Is media loaded correctly?
Make sure the media is passed through the guide roller
and dancer rollers correctly.
Media Feed Is Not Smooth
Is media loaded correctly?
Make sure the media is passed through the guide roller
and dancer rollers correctly.
Are the media clamps mounted?
Be sure to attach the media clamps.
Do the media or the dancer rollers strike some other
object?
Make sure the media and the dancer rollers do not touch
anything else. This may affect printing, even when feed
appears to be smooth.
Was loaded media allowed to stand for some time?
Media may shrink or wrinkle if it is heated for an extended time. When printing ends, switch off the sub
power or remove the media.
Is the media too thick?
Media that is too thick may not only cause unstable feed,
but may scrape the print heads, resulting in malfunction. Never use such media.
Was the media loaded while the heating devices were
hot?
Loading media after the heating devices have warmed
up causes the temperature of the media to rise suddenly,
which may cause the media to shrink or wrinkle during
printing. Before loading media, switch off the sub power
and allow them to cool.
Are the grit rollers dirty?
Check to make sure the grit rollers are free of buildup of
foreign material such as media scraps.
Is the temperature of the heating devices too high?
Set the temperature to suitable values for the type of
media.
☞ p 40 "Settings of Preheater, Print Heater and Dryer"
Is the roll media sagging?
Sagging of the roll can cause wrinkling or warping. Attach the reinforcement pipe when loading the media.
Also, when storing media, place it so that it will not sag
under its own weight.

5-6 The Print Heads Stopped Moving
If the print-head carriage stops over the platen, take
action immediately to prevent the heads from drying out.
5. Make the guides at the edges of the print heads line
up with the printing heads at the edges of the cap
unit. Turn the tool further to bring the heads near the
cap unit.
What to Do First
Switch the sub power off, then back on again. (If the
media is jammed, then also remove the media.) If the
heads move to the standby position (inside the right side
cover), it means the operation has ended successfully.
If the heads did not move, try switching off the main
power, then again switching on the main power, followed
by the sub power.
6. When the heads make contact with the cap unit, turn
the tool one or two more turns.
If the Heads Still Do Not Move
If the heads still do not move, carry out the following
emergency response measure, then contact your authorized Roland DG Corp. dealer or Roland DG Corp. service center.
1. Switch off the main power and detach the right side
cover.
2. Open the front cover.
3. Gently move the print heads by hand as far as the
standby position.
