Grounding Instructions
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This
tool is equipped with an electric cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit
the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface
that is green with or without yellow stripes is the
equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properly grounded.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept
the tool's plug.
Repair or replace damaged or worn out cord immediately.
Operating Instructions
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invites accidents.
DON’T USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. Don’t
use power tools in damp or wet locations, or expose
them to rain. Keep work area well lighted.
DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing; when changing
accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters, and like.
REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING.
Make sure the switch is in off position before plugging in.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult the
owner’s manual for recommended accessories. The
use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury

To Ensure Safe Use
Danger of electrical short, shock, electrocution, or fire
1
Connect to an electrical outlet that complies with this machine's ratings (for
voltage, frequency, and current).
Incorrect voltage or insufficient current may
cause fire or electrical shock.
Ratings
Side view of
the machine
Never use out of doors or in any location where exposure to water or high
humidity may occur. Never touch with
wet hands.
Doing so may result in fire or electrical
shock.
Never allow any foreign object to get
inside. Never expose to liquid spills.
Inserting objects such as coins or matches
or allowing beverages to be spilled into the
ventilation ports may result in fire or electrical
shock. If anything gets inside, immediately
disconnect the power cord and contact your
authorized Roland DG Corp. dealer.
Handle the power cord, plug, and electrical outlet correctly and with care. Never
use any article that is damaged.
Using a damaged article may result in fire
or electrical shock.
When using an extension cord or power
strip, use one that adequately satisfies
the machine's ratings (for voltage, frequency, and current).
Use of multiple electrical loads on a single
electrical outlet or of a lengthy extension
cord may cause fire.
Connect to ground.
This can prevent fire or electrical shock due
to current leakage in the event of malfunction.
Position so that the power plug is within
immediate reach at all times.
This is to enable quick disconnection of the
power plug in the event of an emergency. Install the machine next to an electrical outlet.
Also, provide enough empty space to allow
immediate access to the electrical outlet.
If sparking, smoke, burning odor, unusual
sound, or abnormal operation occurs, immediately unplug the power cord. Never
use if any component is damaged.
Continuing to use the machine may result in
fire, electrical shock, or injury. Contact your
authorized Roland DG Corp. dealer.

When storing roll media, implement
adequate safety measures to ensure
that the stored media will not roll, fall, or
topple over.
Danger exists of becoming pinned under the
media and suffering serious injury.
Handling roll media is an operation that
must be performed by two persons or
more, and care must be taken to prevent
falls.
Attempting to lift heavy media in a manner
that taxes your strength may cause physical injury.
Danger of fire, burns, or toxic gas emissions
WARNING
Caution: high temperatures
Areas such as the dryer become hot. Exercise caution to avoid fire or burns.
When printing is not being performed,
remove any loaded media or switch off
the power.
The continued application of heat at a
single location may cause the release of
toxic gases from the media or pose a fire
hazard.
18
WARNING
Never use media that cannot withstand
heat.
Doing so may degrade the media, or may
result in fire or the release of toxic gases.

The Power-saving Feature (Sleep Mode)
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. When the machine is in the sleep mode, the sub power switch flashes slowly.
Using the operation panel or performing operations such as sending output data from the computer (when
media is loaded) restores the machine to its normal mode.
This setting of sleep mode can be changed. However, we recommend setting the activation time for the sleep
mode to 30 minutes or less to reduce power consumption and prevent problems such as overheating.

Operation
To ensure the optimal output according to the media size and type, various setting items are provided in this
machine. However, it is hard work to perform these settings one by one referring to this document. So, this
machine provides the [Media Setting] menu that guides these settings in the interactive mode. Using this
menu, you can set all of the basic settings only by setting according to the instructions on the display.
Since the setting details can be stored as the preset menu, you can promote your operation efficiently saving
the setup steps when using the same type of media. Once storing the basic settings as the preset, you can do
fine adjustment according to need.
The items set through the [Media Setting] menu can be also set individually.

Fully Utilize the Media Heating System
What Is the Media Heating System?
This machine is equipped with a media heating system that warms the media. You use this mainly to improve
ink adhesion and also dry the ink. You can adjust the temperature settings to match the type of media and
the printing speed.
Print heater
You use this mainly to improve ink
adhesion.
Dryer
You use this to speed up drying
of the ink.
CAUTION: high temperatures
The platen and dryer become hot. Exercise caution to avoid fire or burns.
WARNING
Remove any loaded media or switch off the sub power when printing is
not being performed.
The continued application of heat at a single location may cause fire or produce
toxic gases.
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.
WARNING
Never use the platen or dryer for any purpose for which they are not
intended, such as to dry clothing.
Doing so may cause overheating, resulting in fire or accident.
Use at an ambient temperature of 20 to 32°C (68 to 90°F).
If the machine is used at an ambient temperature lower than 20°C (68°F), then depending on the type or
width of the media, wrinkling or temperature-caused unevenness may occur. If this happens, try lowering
the temperature of the media heating system by about 2°C. To obtain stable printing results, however, the
machine should be used at an ambient temperature of 20 to 32°C (68 to 90°F).

Simply switching on the power does not make the media heating system warm up to the preset temperature.
The temperature rises until preset temperature when the media is loaded correctly and
lights up.
You can also make this setting on the software RIP. When you have made the setting on the software, the
software's setting is used.
 Depending on the usage environment, the temperature of the print heater or dryer may become higher
than the preset temperature, but this does not represent a problem.
Hints and Tips for Temperature Setting
The relationship between the print mode and temperature
The optimal temperature for the media heating system varies according to such factors as the type
of media and differences in the print mode. If smudging or poor drying occur even after raising the
temperature, try using a print mode of software RIP 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 software RIP, adjusting this may yield
better results. If problems such as smudging persist even after raising the temperature, try reducing
the amount of ink.
Other points to remember
When recommended settings for temperature, print mode, and other values are given as the use
condition of your media, use the suggested settings.

Description
This machine prints by the bidirectional mode (in which the heads perform printing during both their outbound
pass and return pass). This printing method is called “Bidirectional Printing.” This method offers the advantage
of being able to shorten output times, but subtle misalignment occurs during 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.

Description
The movement distance of media experiences subtle changes due to the thickness of the media and the temperature of the media heating system. 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 media heating system. Repeat the process of printing a test pattern and entering a correction
value several times to find the optimal value.
You can also make this setting on the software RIP computer (by, for example, choosing the media type in
the software RIP you are using). When you have made the setting on the computer, the computer's setting is
used and the printer's setting is ignored.

Some types of media may tend to stick to the platen. Starting printing with the media sticking to the platen
may make normal media feed impossible and cause the media to jam. When you're using such media, set the

Note, however, that media feed may be unstable when printing is performed after executing this operation.
Leave this menu item set to "DISABLE" unless you specifically need to change it.

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. When further correction is required, such as when adjustment
made using [SIMPLE SETTING] does not enhance printing, use [DETAIL SETTING] to make correction.
 P. 91, "Correcting for Misalignment in Bidirectional Printing," p. 92 "Correcting for Misalignment in Bidirectional Printing More Precisely"
Is the print heater at a suitable temperature?

FAQ
The media heating system may not warm up sufficiently when the ambient temperature is less than 20°C (68°F).
Also, even when the media heating system reaches its 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?
If attractive printing is impossible even when the media heating system is at a high temperature, try using a
higher-quality print mode. 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 software RIP (such as the colorprofile
selection). Make settings suited to the media you're using.

Attractive printing is impossible
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
make sure that the print head is 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. Make sure the media is loaded and set up correctly.
 P. 120, "Media Feed is Not Smooth"
Are the settings for the [PRESET] menu item appropriate?
If the settings selected with the [PRESET] menu item are not suitable for the type of media, printing may be
adversely affected. Choose settings optimized to the media you're using.

Did you shake the ink cartridges gently before in-stalling them?
Shake new cartridges gently before you install them.
Is the media wrinkled?
If the media is wrinkled and comes loose from the platen, colors may be uneven or printing quality may suffer.
 P. 120, "Media Feed is Not Smooth"
Was printing paused partway through?
When printing is paused, the coloring at the seam may be altered when printing resumes. Avoid pausing printing. By default, printing pauses when ink remaining inside the machine runs out. 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.
