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.

1-1 Features
Features of the Machine
What's the LEC-330?
The LEC-330 is a printer that performs high-quality printing using ultraviolet (UV) inks and is equipped with a cutting
feature. Not only can you use the unit as either a printer or a cutting machine, but you can also perform printing followed
immediately by cutting. Also, using the crop-mark feature lets you detach the media after printing, then load it again and
position it accurately for cutting. This makes possible a wide range of uses, including small batches of labels, decals, cut-out
text, and signmaking.
Built-in Print Server
This machine has a built-in print server as a network interface. When you use the print server, you can send printing data to
the machine from anywhere on the network.
Includes a Media Take-up System
To accommodate printing of lengthy media, the machine includes a media take-up system. This is capable of taking up media
automatically during printing. This makes possible unattended operation at night and efficient printing of lengthy media.
Includes a Software Raster Image Processor (RIP)
The software RIP included with the machine lets you use your computer to perform raster image processing for printing data
such as PostScript files exported from a program, and output the data to the machine.
Features of ECO-UV inks
The LEC-330 uses ECO-UV inks. ECO-UV inks are fixed to the media instantly by ultraviolet light. This makes it possible to
perform printing on media that is difficult to print using conventional inks. ECO-UV inks are available in a line-up of six colors
(cyan, magenta, yellow, black, white, and gloss).

Important Notes on Using the Long Media Clamps
When you're using the long media clamps, be sure to set the [MEDIA CLAMP] menu item to [LONG]
to disable media cutoff. Performing cutting the media when the long media clamps are installed causes
interference with the separating knife, which may result in malfunction or damage to the machine.
If you want to separate the media after printing has finished, be sure to first detach the long media clamps,
then set the [MEDIA CLAMP] menu item to a setting other than [LONG].
 P. 80, "Printing Media That Warps Easily"
Give Attention to Media Composition
For some types of media, cutoff is not possible.
Some types of media may remain on the platen after cutoff. If the media remains on the platen, remove
it by hand.
When you cut off media while using the short media clamps, then depending on the media, it may
come loose from the media clamps. After you cut off the media, check to make sure that the media
has not come loose from the media clamps.
Before you're performing cutoff, never use
to pull the media back.
Unless the end of the media has been pulled out to a location to the front of the platen, cutoff may not
be performed smoothly.

2-6 Performing Cutting
To Perform Cutting
To perform cutting, carry out the procedure described below.
Move the media clamps to locations where they don’t clamp the media. Alternatively,
remove the media clamps.
Media clamps
When you're performing cutting only, then if you're cutting roll media, allow the media to
hang down from the rear of the machine.
If cutting is started without doing this first, a motor error may occur or the roll may fall because the media is pulled
with excessive force.
Turn the media flanges by hand
to pull out the necessary length
from the roll.
Important Notes on Cutting
 Never use the media clamps. You can also detach them when not in use.
 When you’re performing printing followed immediately by cutting, then before you start cutting, allow
the ink to dry sufficiently. Use your software RIP to make the setting for the drying time. For information
on how to make the setting, refer to the documentation for the software RIP you're using. The drying
time varies according to the media.
44
Chapter 2 Basic Operation
2-6 Performing Cutting
Hints and Tips for Cutting
 Setting the [PREFEED] menu item to “ENABLE” makes the machine automatically feed out media and
take it up again before cutting. This makes it unnecessary to run out media to the rear of the machine
before the operation.
 P. 99, "Preventing Pulling of the Media with Undue Force When Performing Cutting Only"
 The end of the cap for the blade holder may scrape or damage the printed surface. If this happens,
increase the amount of blade extension.
 P. 96, " Adjusting the Cutting-in Amount"
Performing a Cutting Test
For high-quality cutting, then before you perform actual cutting, we recommend carrying out a cutting test to check the
cutting quality for the media. Before carrying out a cutting test, detach the media clamps.
Performing a Cutting Test
Hold down
for one second or longer to perform a cutting test.
You can perform the cutting test at any location you want by using
to move the cutting
carriage. The front cover may be left open during movement, but be sure to close it before you press

Operation of the Media
Take-up System
47
3-1 The Media Take-up System
Features of the Media Take-up System
Using the media take-up system lets you perform printing while the media is taken up automatically. This makes possible
unattended operation at night and efficient printing of lengthy media.
Operating Conditions for the Media Take-up System
Never Use When Performing Cutting
Never use the media take-up system when you're performing cutting operations. Use is possible only
when performing printing.
Use During Dual-pass Printing Not Possible
When you're performing dual-pass printing, the media must be pulled back, and so the media take-up
unit cannot be used.
 P. 108 "Gloss Ink Features and Printing Methods"
Settings Related to Media Feed
When using the media take-up system, to avoid pulling media with undue force, be sure to observe the
following points. Operations that pull the media with undue force, such as unsuitable take-up by the takeup system, can cause printing to stop or result in misalignment of the printing position.
 Never use
to pull the media back.
 Never operate the MANUAL switch for the take-up unit when the loading lever is pulled back.
 When loading and setting up media, set the [SETUP SHEET] menu item to "TU."
 When feeding out media toward the front of the machine by pressing
, be sure to set the base
point.
 If the setting for pulling back media after printing has been made on the computer, then turn off the
setting.
 On the computer, set the margin from the print-end position to the next print-start position (the page spacing) at a value of 120 millimeters or more.
 Set the [PREFEED] setting-menu item to "DISABLE."
When Performing Continuous Printing of Two or More Pages
When you're performing continuous printing and take-up for two or more pages, give attention to the
following points.
 If the setting to execute automatic cutoff of the media can be made on the computer, then turn this
setting off. Making the setting on the computer to execute automatic cutoff of the media results in media cutoff after each page is printed. (When the [MEDIA CLAMP] menu item is set to [LONG], media
cutoff is not performed.) Take-up quits as soon as the media is cut off.
About the Paper Tube
The included paper tube is a special part exclusively for use with this machine. Using something other than the included
item may result in spinning without traction or other problems that impede media take-up.
The paper tube is a part that wears out. The replacement cycle varies according to usage conditions, but to ensure good
media take-up, monitor the state of the paper tube and replace it when necessary. To purchase a replacement, contact your
authorized Roland DG Corp. dealer or Roland DG Corp.

Maintenance Tasks for White Ink
When white ink is used, dot drop-out or other problems that impede normal ink discharge may occur even when powerful
cleaning or manual cleaning of the print heads has been performed.This can occur because the ingredients in white ink
tend to settle, and may harden if allowed to stand for a lengthy time. If this happens, carry out the maintenance operations
described below.
These maintenance operations require two SOL INK cleaning cartridges.

4-6 When Not in Use for a Prolonged Period
Keep Performing Maintenance
Switch on the power once every two weeks.
Switch on the sub power once every two weeks. 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
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.
PRESS THE POWER
KEY TO CLEAN
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.
Important Note on Draining Ink
This machine has features for draining internal ink and for performing washing using SOL INK cleaning cartridges, but they
should never be used except in special cases. Allowing the machine to stand without ink for a prolonged period may damage
the heads, even if internal washing is performed. Once ink has been filled, then as a rule the ink should never be drained.

Chapter 4 Maintenance and Adjustment
4-7 When Moving the Unit
Procedures from Preparing to Move Through Reinstalling
To move the machine, you must completely drain all ink inside the machine and secure the print heads in place with packing materials to protect them. Attempting to move the machine without first doing this may result in damage to internal
components due to leaking ink or damage to the heads.
This operation requires four unused SOL INK cleaning cartridges. Have these on hand before you start.
For information on how to remove and attach the various items, refer to the Setup Guide.
Important Notes on Moving
 Be sure to use SOL INK cleaning cartridges. Use of any other type may result in breakdown.
 Once the preparations for moving are complete, move the machine and fill it with ink with as little delay
as possible. Allowing the machine to stand without ink may damage the print heads.
 When moving the machine, keep it at a temperature between 5 to 40˚C (41 to 104˚F) and at relative
humidity between 20 to 80% (with no condensation). Failure to do so may result in breakdown.
 Handle the machine with care when moving, keeping it level (not tilted at an angle) and preventing it
from striking other objects.

Ink tends to collect on the surface of the heads when you use media prone to buildup of static charge, when the ambient
temperature is low, or when the head height is set to “HIGH.” Under some conditions, this ink may be transferred to the media
or cause dot drop-out. Use this feature at such times. The ink buildup is removed as printing is performed.
When this is set to "PAGE," automatic cleaning is performed every time before printing starts.
When this is set to a value from "5 min" to "990 min," automatic cleaning is performed when the cumulative printing time
reaches the value you set here.
When this is set to "NONE," no automatic cleaning is performed.
Using "PAGE" or a value from "5 min" to "990 min," results in longer printing times. Also, when this is set to a value from "5

The bidirectional-printing mode (in which the heads perform printing during both their outbound pass and return pass)
offers the advantage of being able to shorten printing 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.
This settings also serves to correct for misalignment of the printing and cutting positions. In such cases, check or adjust this

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. Also, perform the actual printing in an operating
environment identical to that used for the test pattern.

5-7 Performing Printing and Cutting Separately
To Perform Printing and Cutting Separately
When you remove printed media and then reload it and perform cutting, you carry out alignment to prevent misalignment
of the printing results and the cut lines. You do this at times such as when, for example, you perform lamination or other
processing after printing, then reload the media and perform cutting. At such times, you perform printing with crop marks.
You can perform automatic alignment with detection of the printed crop marks when you perform cutting.
Printing with Crop Marks
Use your software RIP to make the settings for printing crop marks. For information on how to make the setting, refer to the
documentation for the software RIP you're using.
Alignment marks and symbols drawn using a graphics program cannot be used as crop marks.
The crop marks are printed as shown in the figure.

5-8 Gloss Ink Features and Printing Methods
Features of Gloss Ink
The ECO-UV Gloss ink that this unit uses can impart a glossy feel to the printed item, as well as enhancing weatherability and
robustness. Also, depending on the printing settings, you can even deliberately eliminate glossiness and produce a matte
finish, or perform fill overprinting using gloss ink to raise the printed surface and create an embossed finish.
Glossiness, weatherability, and robustness may vary depending on the media used, the environment, and other printing
conditions.
Methods of Printing Using Gloss Ink
Using gloss ink requires making settings in the included software raster image processor (RIP) and elsewhere. For detailed
information on matters such as how to make the settings, refer to the White and Gloss Ink Guide.
You can also perform dual-pass printing, in which media printed in color is pulled back to its original location, then filloverprinted with gloss ink. Please note that in such cases, the media must be pulled back, and so a take-up unit cannot be
used.
 "White and Gloss Ink Guide," p. 48 "Operating Conditions for the Take-up System"
Use of the Middle Pinch Rollers in Dual-pass Printing
When the media is pulled back in the course of dual-pass printing or the like, the middle pinch rollers may scratch the media
slightly. This scratching is especially noticeable on transparent media. In such cases, secure the media using only the left
pinch roller and the right pinch roller.
 P. 31 "Loading Media"
Installation Environment
The characteristics of gloss ink make any dust that adheres to the ink plainly visible. Install and use this unit in a location
that has little dust.

5-9 White Ink Features and Printing Methods
Features of White Ink
The ECO-UV white ink that this unit uses achieves high density and concealment, and is capable of providing attractive
results when white and CMYK inks are overprinted. This ink is suited to printing on transparent media, and lets you create
results intended to be viewed from the back (the side opposite the printed surface) by reversing the image and changing the
sequence in which the white ink and CMYK inks are printed. You can use this to create items for shop interiors and displays,
PET bottles and other packages, decals, and more.
Methods of Printing Using White Ink
Using white ink requires making settings in the included software raster image processor (RIP) and elsewhere. For detailed
information on matters such as how to make the settings, refer to the White and Gloss Ink Guide.

Description
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 also to set the [EDGE DETECTION] menu item to "ENABLE." When [EDGE
DETECTION] is set to "DISABLE," then [SHEET REMAIN] is not displayed automatically, regardless of the setting for [AUTO

This prints the amount of media remaining that is displayed at the top menu. You use this when you want to make a record
of the remaining length of the media now in use. Printing the amount of media remaining before you change the media
enables you to refer to the printed record and use the value to make the setting for the remaining amount the next time
you use the media.
Note, however, that continuing by performing the next print starts the print on top of the portion where the amount of
remaining media is printed.
After printing the amount remaining, then before you perform the next output operation, we recommend cutting off the
media.

Carry out a printing test and make sure no dot drop-out occurs.
If dot drop-out is present, perform head cleaning.
 P. 40, "Printing Tests and Cleaning"
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 heads are not exposed to moving air. These factors may
lead to missing dots or reduced printing quality.
 P. 57, "When Head Cleaning Is Not Effective"
Is the head height appropriate?
Is the printer installed in a location out of direct
sunlight?
 P. 88, "Adjusting Head Height to Match Media Thickness"
Is the media loaded and set up correctly?
Printing when the [HEAD HEIGHT] menu item is set to "HIGH" is
coarser than when set to "LOW." Keep this set to "LOW" except
when changing it is necessary, such as when you're using thick
media.
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. 92, "Performing Feed Correction to Alleviate Horizontal Bands and
the Like"
Never install in a location exposed to direct sunlight. Doing
so may result in dot drop-out or other problems with reduced
printing quality, or may even result in malfunction.
If the media is not loaded and set up correctly, media feed may
not be smooth, or printing may be adversely affected.
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
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.
 P. 110, "Saving Optimized Media Settings As Preset Values"
Did the media become slack during feed correction?
Slackness of the media during feed correction makes accurate
correction impossible. Carry out feed correction with the media
pulled taut.
 P. 92, "Performing Feed Correction to Alleviate Horizontal Bands and
the Like"
After feed correction, was the media pulled back?
Never pull the media back after carrying out feed correction.
Doing so may cause the correction results not to be applied
properly and result in horizontal stripes.
 P. 92, "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. 89, "Correcting for Misalignment in Bidirectional Printing"
 P. 90, "Correcting for Misalignment in Bidirectional Printing More
Precisely"
Is the print mode suitable?
Try a higher-quality print mode. Depending on the media,
uneven colors may occur in high-quality print modes, and the
results are also greatly affected by the settings of the software
RIP (such as the selected color profile). Make settings suited to
the media you're using.
 P. 111, "Loading a Saved Preset"
Colors Are Unstable or Uneven
Did you shake the ink cartridges gently before installing them?
Before you install a new 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 quality may suffer.
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Is the media sagging?
Performing printing using sagging roll media makes uneven
colors more likely.
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.
Are the operating parameters set to appropriate
values?
Depending on the settings for such menu items as [FULL WIDTH

have been changed, try restoring them to their default values.
 P. 79, "Speeding Up Printing for Narrow Media"
 P. 80, "Preventing Soiling of the Media and Dot Drop-out During
Printing"
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 print
heads are not exposed to wind or blown air. These factors may
lead to missing dots or reduced printing quality.
Is the printer being used in a location subject to severe changes in the operating environment?
Large fluctuations in temperature or humidity while printing is
in progress may cause the colors to change partway through.
When you're performing printing, use the machine in a location
where temperature and humidity are stable.
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.
 P. 110, "Saving Optimized Media Settings As Preset Values"
 P. 111, "Loading a Saved Preset"
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. 88, "Adjusting Head Height to Match Media Thickness"
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Are the print heads dirty?
Cutting Is Misaligned or Skewed
Is the media loaded and set up correctly?
If the media is not loaded and set up correctly, or media feed is
not smooth, cutting may be adversely affected. Make sure the
media is loaded and set up correctly.
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Are the settings for the cutting conditions appropriate?
Misalignment or skewing may occur if the cutting speed is too
fast or the blade force is too high. Try changing the cutting conditions. With media having a strong adhesive layer, the adhesive
layer reattaches to itself immediately after cutting. However, if a
cutting test shows that the peeling of the media and the blade
traces on the backing paper are optimal, then the media is being
cut properly. Be careful not to make the blade force too high.
Is the length of printing too long?
For printing followed immediately by cutting in particular, the
longer the page length (that is, the longer the distance the media
is returned after printing), the greater is the chance of misalignment occurring. It is a good idea to keep the size of each single
page to the minimum necessary.
Are you using media that exhibits large expansion
and contraction?
When you're performing printing followed immediately by cutting, misalignment occurs if the media expands or contracts.
If this happens, try performing printing with crop marks, then
setting the base point and one or more align points and performing cutting. This corrects for expansion and contraction of
the media.
Is [AUTO ENV. MATCH] set to the "DISABLE" setting?
The printing and cutting positions may become misaligned due
to ambient temperature or humidity. Setting [AUTO ENV. MATCH]
to "ENABLE" performs matching to the environment to correct
for misalignment.
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. 85, "Executing Environment Matching Automatically"

The Media Jams
If an error message is displayed because the media
has jammed, immediately correct the problem. Failure
to do so may damage the print heads.
 P. 135, [MOTOR ERROR TURN POWER OFF]
Is the media warped or wrinkled?
Many factors can cause warping or wrinkling. Refer to the following and correct the problem.
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Is the height of the print heads too low?
Try raising the heads higher. Media may inevitably warp or
wrinkle slightly, so adjust the height of the heads to take this
into account.

The Media Cannot Be Taken Up Smoothly
Is media feed unstable?
Various factors can make media feed unstable. Refer to the following and correct the problem.
 P. 131, "Media Wrinkles or Shrinks, or Feed Is Unstable"
Is the paper tube installed correctly?
Securely insert the paper tube onto the end caps. If the paper
tube is not attached correctly, it may spin without traction and
fail to take up the media.
 Setup Guide
Is the paper tube bent or sagging?
Media cannot be taken up smoothly when the paper tube is
bent or sagging.
Are you using the included paper tube?
For the paper tube, use the included item. Using something other
than the included item may result in spinning without traction
or other problems that impede media take-up.
 P. 48, "About the Paper Tube"
130
Chapter 6 What to Do If
6-5 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, or media jams. Take
action as follows.
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 is tensioned
unevenly on the left and right. Reload the media.
Are the media clamps mounted?
When you're performing printing, be sure to attach the media
clamps.
Media Feed Is Not Straight
Is the media loaded and set up straight and securely?
Feed is not smooth when the media is not straight or is tensioned
unevenly on the left and right. Reload the media.
Media Feed Is Not Smooth
Do the media or the shafts strike some other object?
Make sure the media and the shafts do not touch anything
else. This may affect output, even when feed appears to be
smooth.
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.
Are the grit rollers dirty?
Check to make sure the grit rollers are free of buildup of foreign
material such as media scraps.
Chapter 6 What to Do If
131
6-6 The Print Heads Stopped Moving
If the print-head carriage stops over the platen, take
action immediately to prevent the heads from drying
out.
6. Make the guides at the edges of the print heads line up with
the guides at the edges of the cap unit. Turn the tool further to
bring the cap unit near the heads.
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 print-head carriage
move to the standby position (the right side of the main unit), it
means the operation has ended successfully.
If the print-head carriage did not move, try switching off the
main power, then again switching on the main power, followed
by the sub power.
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.
2. Open the front cover.
3. Detach the side cover.
4. Gently move the print heads by hand as far as the standby
position.
7. When the heads make contact with the cap unit, turn the
tool one or two turns more.
Make sure the print heads are capped tightly.
5. Insert the head-unit tool into the hole at the bottom of the
machine and turn gently. The cap unit rises.
