contact with the head unit.
1-5
1 Safety Precautions
The nozzle missing automatic detection function reduces waste of media and
ink that could be caused by faulty printing
The printer automatically checks the printing result for nozzle missing after cleaning and during printing.
And if necessary, it requires another cleaning or interruption of printing to prevent a waste of media and
ink.
Optimum printing is realized thanks to the media thickness automatic detection function and automatic head height adjustment mechanism
The printer automatically detects the thickness of the sheet of media, and automatically adjusts the head
height to ensure the specified head gap. For different thicknesses of media to be used, printing is performed with a constant head gap, and thus optimum printing is always realized.

CAUTIONS and NOTES
CAUTIONS and NOTES
Handling of ink cartridges
„ Use the JV5 genuine ink. Remember that the user shall be charged for a repair to correct any damage resulting from
the use of ink other than the exclusive type.
„ The printer does not operate with any ink other than the JV5 genuine ink.
„ Do not use the JV5 genuine ink with other printers, as doing so may cause damage to such printers.
„ Never refill the ink cartridge with ink. Refilling the ink cartridge can cause a trouble. Remember that MIMAKI
assumes no responsibility for any damage caused by the use of the ink cartridge replenished with ink.
„ If the ink cartridge is moved from a cold place to a warm place, leave it in the room temperature for three hours or
more before using it.
„ Open the ink cartridge just before installing it in the printer. If it is opened and left for an extended period of time, normal printing performance of the printer may not be ensured.
„ Make sure to store ink cartridges in a cold and dark place.
„ Store ink cartridges and waste ink tank in a place that is out of the reach of children.
„ Be sure to thoroughly consume the ink in the ink cartridge, once it is opened, within three months. If an extended
period of time has passed away after opening the cartridge tank, printing quality would be poor.
„ Neither pound the ink cartridge nor shake it violently, as doing so can cause leakage of ink.
„ Do not touch or stain the contacts of the ink cartridge, as doing so may cause damage to the print circuit board.
„ Waste ink is equivalent to waste oil of industrial waste. Request an industrial waste disposal company for disposal of
waste ink.
Front cover and lever
„ Never open the front cover or raise the lever during printing. Opening the cover or raising the lever will abort printing.
Handling of media
„ Use media recommended by MIMAKI to ensure reliable, high-quality printing.
„ Set the heater temperature to meet the characteristics of the media.
Set the temperature of the preheater, print heater and post-heater according to the type and characteristics of the media
used. Automatic temperature setting can be made on the operation panel by setting the profile on the dedicated RIP.
For setting on the RIP, refer to the instruction manual for your RIP.
„ Pay attention to the expansion and contraction of the media.
Do not use media immediately after unpacking. The media can be affected by the room temperature and humidity, and
thus it may expand and contract.
The media have to be left in the atmosphere in which they are to be used for 30 minutes or more after unpacked.
„ Do not use curled media.
The use of curled media can not only cause a media jam but also affect print quality.
Straighten the sheet of media, if significantly curled, before using it for printing.
If a regular-sized coated sheet of media is rolled and stored, the coated side has to face outside.
Protection of media from dust
„ Store media in a bag. Wiping off dust accumulated on media will adversely affect the media due to static electricity.
„ When leaving the workshop after the working hours, do not leave any media on the roll hanger. If any media is left on
the roll hanger, it can get dusty.
1-14
Warning for Use
CAUTIONS and NOTES
Notes on maintenance
„ It is strongly recommended to use the printer in a room that is not dusty. Set the Refresh level 2 or 3 when the printer
is to be used in an unfavorable environment. (Refer to “REFRESH (p.6-11)” )
„ Keep the front cover closed even when the printer is not printing. If not, dust can accumulate on the nozzles in the
heads.
„ Dust in the heads can also cause drops of ink to fall suddenly down on the media during printing. In such a case, be
sure to clean up the heads. (Refer to “Automatic cleaning (p.3-62)” )
„ Perform wiping (removal of dust and paper powder) of the capping station and wiper frequently.
Regularly replaced parts
„ Some parts of this printer must be replaced with a new one periodically by service personnel.
Be sure to make a contract with your distributor or dealer for after-sale service to ensure a long life of your printer.

„ Do not disassemble ink cartridges or refill them with ink.
„ Ink could freeze if kept in a cold place for an extended period.
If the ink freezes, thaw it at room temperature (25°C) spending more than three
hours before use.
• When water-based ink is used, if the ink freezes, the quality is changed and the ink
becomes unusable. Store the ink in an environment that will not freeze the ink.
To use Eco-HS1 ink with a good image quality
„ Head gap (the length between media and head nozzle) is recommended to set less than 1.5mm.
If printing with over 2.0mm setting, the image quality is not guaranteed for ink-splash.
„ Recommended heater temperature for PVC sheet are PRE/PRINT 40 degree or below, AFTER 50
degree or below.
„ Please set difference of temperature of heater temperature and the environmental temperature to less
than 30 degrees.
When difference of temperature was used in more than 30 degrees , the dew condensation of the ink
solvent ingredient is generated on the head surface, and we cannot guarantee a image.
„ Please do not remove the cartridge until ink was exhausted, there is the possibility that the ink may leak.
When removing an ink cartridge from a printer, please do not turn an ink outlet upside down.
There is possibility that ink hangs from an ink outlet.

1 Safety Precautions
Notes on USB 2.0 Interface
„ Your RIP must be compatible with USB 2.0.
When two or more JV5 printers are connected to one personal computer
When two or more JV5 printers are connected to one personal computer, the personal computer may not
recognize all the JV5 printers normally.
Reconnect the unrecognized JV5 printer to another USB port, if available, and check to see if it is recognized. If the JV5 printer is not recognized even through the newly connected USB port, use USB 2.0
repeater cables available on the market.
USB 2.0 repeater cable
Notes on peripheral devices in USB high speed mode
When a peripheral device (USB memory or USB HDD) to be operated in USB high speed mode is connected to the same personal computer that a JV5 printer is connected to, the USB device may not be recognized.
When a JV5 printer is connected to the personal computer to which an externally installed USB hard disk
drive is connected, the data output speed to the JV5 printer may drop. That can cause the head unit to stop
temporarily at the right or left end during printing.
Removing USB memory
If a USB memory module is inserted in the personal computer to which a JV5 printer is connected, click
“Stop” in the “Safely Remove Hardware” window by following the instructions given there first and then
remove the module. Leaving a USB memory module inserted can cause [ERROR 10 COMMAND
ERROR].
Copy the data onto the hard disk before outputting it for printing.
1-22
Basic specifications
Notes on data output from USB memory
When spool data stored on USB memory is to be output for printing, the data is transferred to the JV5
printer at a low speed. That can cause the head unit to stop temporarily at the right or left end during printing.

the platen temperature drops; otherwise, you can get burned.
„ When the media is to be replaced with a thin one, lower the heater temperatures and wait until the platen temperature drops adequately. Setting a thin
sheet of media while the platen is hot may cause the media to stick to the
platen or cause wrinkling or curling of the media.
„ Do not leave the media being heated with the heaters for a long time without
performing printing. Otherwise, the surface of the media may rise like a wave
and thus the heads may rub on the media. If the media is found having risen
like a wave, feed the media with the [] key until the surface free from the rise

Setting the media on the printer
This printer can be used with roll media and cut sheet media. Use the media recommended by MIMAKI.
(Refer to “Sizes of media that can be used (p.1-16)” )
„ In the cases below, be sure to fix tension-bars on both sides of the printer.
If you leave the tension-bars unfixed, the bars supported by media may fall
down. Please be careful.
ƒ When lifting up the clamp lever
ƒ When cutting media manually with JOG key
ƒ When cutting media with tools you have (cutter, scissors, etc.)
„ If a transparent media is set, the message [ERROR 50 MEDIA DETECT] is displayed and the media may not be detected.
„ If the media is exposed to direct sunshine, the media width may not be
detected correctly.
„ Do not use printed media; otherwise, ink can adhere to pinch rollers and thus
media may be stained or may not be detected.
„ Significantly or internally curled media must be straightened so that it will be
fed properly without floating above the platen.
„ Media may form an irregular surface because of the heat from the print-heater if
it is left set on the printer for a significant period of time. If printing is started on
the irregular surface of the media, the heads may rub on the media. Therefore,
if an irregular surface is found on the media, feed the media with the [] key
and set a new origin to avoid printing on the irregular surface.
„ Set media in the center of the printer.
This printer can print on the media setting on the right side, however, some
types of media tend to cause skew (media is fed on a skew) or sticking on the
platen. By setting media in the center, the printer stably feeds the media.

What is beading ?
Beading is a phenomenon that adjacent dots attracts each other and join. Beading causes speckled patterns
or stripes along printing passes (banding.)
Example of beading
The area in 100% magenta looks fine. Generally, the area in 70-100% single color is easily affected by the
unevenness of media feed rate. The print shown here, free from unevenness of color in the vicinity of
100% magenta area, signifies that media feeding has been adjusted properly.
Fine looking print
In the blue area (100% magenta + 100% cyan), however, speckled patterns and banding occur. This banding is a result of beading. If heater temperatures are low or the ink capacity (ink limit) of the media is low,
the first dot does not solidify before the second dot lands on the media. As a result, dots bond to each other
and unevenness or banding occurs.
In order to avoid beading, it is recommended to raise the heater temperatures, to raise the ink capacity (ink
limit) of the media, to adjust the ink volume per dot for the media, to increase the number of printing
passes and decrease the ink amount for one shot, and/or to gain time by scan wait.
Change media if none of the above-mentioned measures works to prevent beading.

„ When cutting with your cutter or scissors instead of the cutter of this machine,
be sure to lift the tension-bars up. Since the bars hang by media, for safety, do
not cut media without lifting tension-bars up.
„ Do not turn off the main power switch at the rear of the printer even after completion of printing. If the main power switch is turned off, nozzles may be
clogged.
„ When the current head height is 4.0 mm or more, media cutting cannot be performed.

Display of [INK NEAR END] or [INK END]
A message appears when one of the two ink cartridges in a set is completely empty and the other is nearly
empty.
Once the [INK NEAR END] message appears, printing can be continued but the ink may run out during printing. Immediately replace the relevant ink cartridge with a new one.
„ Once the red one of Cartridge LEDs starts flashing or [NEAR END] is indicated
on the LCD, replace the ink cartridge without delay.
Never remove any cartridge if there is no cartridge to be installed in place of the
cartridge to be removed. If any cartridge is kept removed without another one
installed instead of the removed one, the ink supply path will dry, thus resulting
in a malfunction of the printer. If ten minutes have passed with any cartridge
removed and without another one installed, the printer will warn the operator
by sounding the warning buzzer.
Before starting continuous printing, be sure to check the ink level for adequacy.
The printer will stop printing if ink runs out during printing. A change in color
may be found when printing is resumed. The cause is the difference in drying
time between the print area before the stop of printing and that after the
resumption of printing.
Indication of remaining amount of ink for each cartridge
Pressing the [ENTER] key in REMOTE mode or LOCAL mode will display the remaining amount of ink.
When an ink-related error has occurred, pressing the [INFORMATION] key will display the warning concerning the current supply cartridge. (Refer to “Function Flowchart [LOCAL mode] (p.6-42)” )

STEPS FOR REPLACEMENT
„ When a cartridge LED (red) is lit or flashing, replace the cartridge immediately.
Never remove any cartridge if there is no cartridge to be installed in place of the
cartridge to be removed. If any cartridge is kept removed without another one
installed instead of the removed one, the ink supply path will dry, thus resulting
in a malfunction of the printer. If ten minutes have passed with any cartridge
removed and without another one installed, the printer will warn the operator
by sounding the warning buzzer.
The replacement procedure described below is applied to a case where an error
has occurred in both cartridges.
1 A message [INK NEAR END] or [INK END] appears during printing.
Once [INK NEAR END] appears, the printer returns to LOCAL mode and stops operation every completion of
printing a single image.
Go to Step 2 after a stop of printing.
Once [INK END] appears, printing cannot be continued.
When replacement of a cartridge is required during printing, replace the cartridge for which the cartridge LED
(red) is lit or flashing. Take care not to remove the cartridge for which the cartridge LED (green) is lit; removing it would discontinue printing.

Turning the power off
After completing all desired operations with the printer, press the power switch on the front of the printer to
turn the power off.
Before turning the power off, make sure that the printer is not receiving any data from the computer and that
the printer has no data that has not been output yet.
Also make sure that the heads are located at the capping station.
„ Do not turn off the main power switch on the side face. The power is turned on
periodically and the nozzle clogging preventive function is activated. (Flushing
function)
„ If the main power switch is left turned off for an extended period of time, nozzles will be clogged. In such a case, the printer must be repaired by MIMAKI’s
service engineer.
„ Keep the front cover and maintenance covers all closed. If any of the covers is
open, the nozzle clogging preventive function will not be activated.
„ For ventilation, do not turn off the power switch immediately after printing.
„ If the power to the printer was turned off without the heads capped, turn the
power on again. The heads will return to the capping station, where they will be
capped and prevented from drying.
If the power is turned off while the printer is engaged in printing, the heads may
fail to be retracted in the capping station. If the heads are left without capped
for an extended period of time, nozzles may be clogged.
„ Even when the main power switch is put off for moving the equipment, make
sure to press the power switch on the front of the equipment and confirm that
the power is off and then put off the main power switch.
STEPS:
1 Press the power switch on the front.

4 Daily Maintenance
Routine Maintenance
Be sure to perform maintenance of the printer periodically or whenever necessary so that the printer can be
used with its inherent accuracy for a long time.
Precautions in cleaning
Icon
Meaning
When using the cleaning solution, be sure to wear the supplied protective glasses.
The ink contains an organic solvent. When performing cleaning, be sure to wear gloves so that no ink will
come in contact with your skin.
Never disassemble the printer. Disassembling it can result in electric shock hazards or damage to the
machine.
Before starting maintenance work, be sure to turn off the main power switch and unplug the power cable;
otherwise, an unexpected accident may occur.
Prevent moisture from entering the printer. Moisture inside the printer can cause electric shock hazards or
damage to the machine.
To ensure reliable ink jetting, it is necessary to have the printer perform ejection of a fine amount of ink
(flushing) periodically while printing (output) is suspended for an extended period of time.
When printing is to be suspended for a long time, turn off only the power switch in the front of the printer;
leave the main power switch at the side of the printer turned ON (in the position of | ) and leave the power
cable connected.
If organic solvent ink is mixed with water or alcohol, coagulation occurs.
Do not wipe the nozzle face of the heads, the wiper or caps with water or alcohol. Doing so can cause nozzle clogging or printer failure.
Do not use benzine, thinner, or any chemical agent containing abrasives. Such materials can deteriorate or
deform the surface of covers.
Do not apply lubricating oil or the like to any part inside the printer. Doing so can cause printing failure.
Be careful not to allow the cleaning solution or ink to adhere to covers, as this may cause deterioration or
discoloring of the surface of covers.

prevent ink clogging or the like.
The [ROUTINE SETUP] function is available for the following items:
ROUTINE WIPING
While printing, the nozzle surface is wiped with a certain interval to remove dew drops.
It is possible to set [SCAN COUNT] and [TEMP difference].
(When solvent ink is used)

Preventing the bedewing of ink on the nozzle surface [ROUTINE WIPING]
(When solvent ink is used)
With the temperature of the print heater having been set high or use of a larger amount of ink (high concentration,
two-layer application, etc.) having been set, “ink splaying”, “ink drops falling”, or “nozzle missing” may occur.
The cause of these phenomena is such that the ink of the print is heated by the print heater immediately after printing and resultantly evaporated solvent may condense on the nozzle face.
The greater the difference between the setting temperature of the print heater and the ambient temperature is, the
more easily ink can condense.
This function wipes the condensed ink off the nozzle face at intervals during printing.
STEPS:
1 Make sure that the printer is in LOCAL mode, and then select [MAINTENANCE] using

Available setting values: [ON, OFF]
With DRYNESS FEED set to ON, the printer feeds the media up to the location of the post-heater where
the media is dried.
After waiting for a period of time that has been set by the setup Function (DRYING TIME - DRAWend),
the printer performs the next printing (media cutting). No back feed is performed. (Printing will be started
at the position to which the media has been fed for media drying.)
CONFIRM. FEED
Set whether or not to perform feeding the media after test printing for checking of the printing result.
Available setting values: [ON , OFF]
With CONFIRM. FEED set to ON, the media after completion of printing will be fed up to a position
where the print result can be checked on the platen.
In addition, when CONFIRM. FEED has been set to ON, [BACK FEED] can be set to ON using the
[FUNCTION] key.
The [BACK FEED] function returns to the original position the media that has been fed by the [CONFIRM. FEED] function.

Available setting values: [FORE (***mm), FORE&BACK]
When FORE (***mm) is set, a media is pre-feeded at specified amout, to remove the media that has waved
by the heat of the heater.
Change the feeding length of the media with [FUNCTION] key when FORE is selected.
Available setting values: [10 to 1000mm]
When FORE&BACK is set, a media is pre-feeded back and forth at specific amout, to avoid media sticking.
HEATER SETUP
Set the temperature that determines whether the post-heater is reached to the specified temperature.
Available setting values: [STD, set -5°C, set -10°C, set -15°C, set -20°C]
When STD is set, this machine assumes the post-heater temperature has been reached when it reaches to
the specified temperature.
When Set -5°C, Set -10°C, Set -15°C, or Set -20°C is set, this machine assumes the post-heater temperature has been reached when the temperature is more than the set one subtracted the selected one.
Post-heater temperature easily lowers after printing.
In case of printing some data continuously with STD is set, if the temperature does not reach between completion of one data printing and a start of next printing, it displays “Temperature controlling.” It does not
start printing until the temperature reaches.
If you want to print continuously at low temperature, select other than STD.
