Need Roland SP300V Head ASAP

    My magenta/yellow head took a dump. I can get a tech out of Chicago Monday to install a new magenta head but the mileage, labor and parts will cost me over $1200!

    Does anybody know where I can overnight or quick ship a head for this Roland SP300V for less than $800?

    Sorry I haven't been around in a while...life has been crazy busy building a house, moving in and my non-profit work. It will be good to catch up with everyone! ;-)

    SP540? Why did you remove it Charlie?

    Somebody on here was selling a couple of new Roland SP heads for a few hundred dollars a while back but I cant remember who...

    Any leads would be helpful. Thanks!

    The tech said it caused my f1 or f2 fuse to blow. I personally believe it was from a lightning strike. Not sure if you'd want it, because if the tech is correct, then you'd have a bigger problem on your hands. I just keep it because it looks cool.

    fellow smart members,

    don't buy from China.

    1. Money is required up front 100%.
    2. Fedex fees + bank wire fee = $$
    3. You will never see them if they dont want to ship. yes there are legit companies there; i hope your luck find you well.

    $800 shipped next day to your door- brand new print head

    So would this be the same brand & quality print head that you would get from Roland or one of their distributors/service centers?

    Never buy from roland dealer.
    they are too much expensive.
    reaplace is very easy.
    I bought it fuse 97cent. roland dealer charge $11.00. fuxx that it.
    they are cheater.
    print head $899. I pay $699($600)
    mainboard $1954. I can find new board is$1100. fix $200.
    power supply $ 800. I can buy $500. fix depense on ($25 ~ $100)
    we need learn fix ourself.
    Do not trust Dealer.

    I bought the head locally today to get the printer back up and running quickly. I don't think that all dealers are bad and you must consider the cost of down time as well. Sometimes it costs you less just to have someone come out and fix the machine but you are right in regards that we should be knowledgeable about our machines.

    Thanks for everyone's input.
