    it was cutting fine the otherday
    the vinyl started slipping off rollers (sorted now)
    however now i cant get it to cut right,when i pull vinyl off it pulls letters off as its not cut right.
    i can get it to cut through the backing paper or barely cut through the vinyl,i have adjusted the cutter tension on the side of the cutter,
    any ideas please?
    thanks

    Check your blade protection strip for cuts, dings, grooves. Run your index finger the length of the teflon strip (immediately below the blade). If it is not smooth as a baby's bottom, it needs to be changed. When was the last time you replaced your bladeholder? Roland recommends changing it every six months. Rarely have I heard of anyone changing their bladeholder on a service schedule, but I am sure someone has.

    also check your to see if you have the blade sticking out of the blade holder to far or not far enough should stick out about the thickness of a credit card

    That is the cutting silicone strip and it is changeable. Roland should still have them. The cut vinyl pressure (slider on the right side) should be set so the blade cuts the vinyl and barely dents the backing paper.

    Sounds like you need to adjust your blade offset. It's in the menu on the digital display on the plotter.

    if your cutting stripe is ok and you blade is at the right pressure, and you say IT WAS CUTTING OK before.....my question is what program are you cutting from? where did you get the fonts you are having problems with the cut? a PNC-1000 will not cut very well below 3/4" 18-20mm.
