    We have a Roland SP-540.

    Recently it has been spraying dots on any and all media. I am thinking it is time for a wiper replace, but correct me I am wrong, and also if anyone could please direct me on how to do a wiper replace.

    Check your heads with a flashlight, look for hairs, dried ink, or banner strings hanging from the heads. Do a very good head cleaning using the swabs, change the wipers, clean wiper scraper, and do a close look at the caps for hairs, etc... Or, you may have had a bad head crash and scratched your head(s).

    Oops! Wiper replacement: turn front power off...then hold the Cleaning button + Power - scroll down to wiper replace - the wipers will come out for easy replacement - simply use tweezers to remove the old wipers and exchange with new.

    I have done a thorough cleanup, and have yet to check how it prints, if it doesn't print fine then maybe will try a wiper replace.

    Appreciate the help. Alot.

    Swabs and cleaning solution is your best friend here... clean all the parts listed and you should have great looking prints. Cheers!
