      I am feeling a little overwhelmed! Yes, everybody wants their stuff NOW... I'm not seeing too many offer money down though. So, I was thinking about approaching all these "Rush" Customers like this:

      Provide a general quote. Then as are you really that much in a rush? If so, give them the percentages on how much more they will pay over the general quote I gave them. Here is a rough of what my percentages might be:

      Need it in 3 weeks: ...No extra, ....but 50% down to get it on my job board!
      Need it in 2 weeks: ....................Add 15% to quote, 50% down.
      Need it in 1 week: ....................Add 30% to quote, 50% down.
      Need it in 4 days: ....................Add 50% to quote, 100% down
      Need it NOW/Get it in 2 days:.......Add 80% to quote, 100% down.

      I hope it is not too much to ask but i have similar problem like you had one year ago with yours printer. I have scan motor replaced and when I try to do limit initialization i get message POSITION INVALID OUT OF RANGE. So can you explain how techs or you solved problem. I don't have faulty sensor.

      Thanks in advance.

      hello Peter,
      my name is Damir and i am from Croatia. Before app. one year i bought mimaki ujv 160 which is something like similar like new Lej 160. but i am not satisfied with it, so now i thinking to replace it with the new Roland lej 160. But i am afraid that it will have the same problems like mimaki. Did you do some good testing? please can you inform me how you are satisfied with the purchase of the new roland.
      best regards

      Pete, I'm right down the road from you in Pattenburg. I'd be happy to fix it if you buy the parts. You'll need Captops and a Damper. What's happened is the sponge in the Cap has expanded out and "wicked" the yellow and magenta. Each color ink is traveling down and back up into the other side of the printhead. I'll also take a look at the VP. I'm sure it's an easy fix.
