Roland GX-500 won't communicate with Flexi

Discussion in 'Roland' started by OPTIMA GRAPHICS, Jul 26, 2011.

    I am having an issue with my plotter.
    Yesterday, a fellow employee used the Cut/Plot option in flexi to plot out a menu board. Normally, all of our cutting is done through the Rip/Print option and selecting Contour job only.

    Later in the day, when we returned to cut another job, the plotter would not communicate with Flexi through the Rip/Print option. The job does not go into production manager or even display any error messages.

    I can run a test cut, and I can still use the cut/plot option, but that does not help me seeing as I need the plotter to read the registration marks.

    Does anyone know what is causing my cutter to not communicate?

    I have uninstalled and re-installed the driver, restarted both the computer and flexi multiple times with no results.

    Use the Preferences Manager to set the prefs back to Default.

    Then reboot, restart Flexi only. Create a test print/cut job and click RIP/PRINT icon.

    Should prompt you to setup the devices and move forward
