    Greetings all, I have had an Agfa Sherpa 43i (mutoh rj6000) dropped in my lap that prints nothing. Going through basic checkout and I run into Head Rank. Number on printhead is DE 49732, but the diags will not let me adjust the first two numbers past 35. I am very new to the wide format world and any info on where I get the head rank number would be appreciated.

    DE 49732 is the part#, the head rank should be on a tab with the new head.

    on the left/right side (hard to see but it is on black area with dark font) so almost invisible of a head you have a head rank - input it in a MM mode > parametars

    Thanks

    Finally found the head rank in very faint print on the side. Many thanks. Now another question. It appears that the two fuses for the head are blown (small square resettable fuses with a 20 on them on the motherboard) Any idea where I can get them and what they are actually called. Thanks

    They're probably blown for a reason. It might be better to get someone in there that knows what they're doing and repair the problem before you do further damage.

    fuse

    Trust me, there is nothing I would rather do more, but the owner wants me to give it a go and if I can't get it going we will buy a new one. That being said the fuses are definitly bad and it will take a couple minutes to solder new ones on. Have to at least give it my best shot. Just need to find right replacements.

    Quick Question?

    Did you by chance remove the head from the printer while the power cord was still plugged in to the printer? The fuses on the mainboard usually blow for two main reasons. 1 being an enduser not unplugging the the power and/or dispursing the power from the unit after unplugging the cord.

    2 being the machine taking a electrical surge, but normally a surge would not blow both fuses.

    Replacing the fuses is not for a novice repair person, because you will do more damage if your not familiar with how things work.

    If you need a service tech for that machine, shoot me a private message and we can arrange something. I am very reasonable on labor charges and have most parts on hand.

    heads

    Heads were swapped previously before I even got machine. I have taken it from dead to where it will power on, pulls ink to the heads and thinks it is printing but no ink comes out. Spent 15 years with IBM as a tech so board repair is not a problem, although I do understand how you can totally hose yourself if you do not know what you are doing. I have learned a lot about this machine from reading the info that you guys have posted on this forum. You help alot more people then you realize when you post an answer to someones question. Many thanks

    How can you tell they are blown, does the lcd tell you via error codes or can you see that they are burn't out? I have installed new heads on same model and it still won't print, maybe the fuses are blown in mine.

    You may need to check on a Roland Printer Forum, this is a Mutoh Forum.
