The VP-540 is slightly different but we repair either ones as well as most other Roland boards. If one or more colors are COMPLETELY not printing at all OR the printer is not turning on (but the green light is on) your main board may be damaged. A main board can be damaged by the following.
1 printhead that has shorted. 2 bad printhead cable look at the cable ends to see if there's delamination or damage.
3 ink that has accidentally gone into the printhead connector. 4 any large voltage spike.
5 removing any cables inside the printer while the power cord is connected. If after connecting the board and it shorts out again, it probably means that the associated print head is bad which will need to be replaced. If you need more than that, then there will be an additional charge. Repairs generally take 24-48 hours after receipt of the board.
Then carefully package up your head board (preferably in antistatic bagging) and bubble protection inside the box. On the outside of the box, write - BOARD FOR REPAIR SERVICES. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
We do not provide ANY additional warranties other than what is listed above. We will not be held responsible for any damage that may occur by you removing the card or subsequent replacement back into your machine. We do recommend authorized and trained technicians to perform all board replacements to avoid any problems. _gsrx_vers_417 GS 6.0.5 (417).
