Question
How can tell when its time to replace the waste ink collector unit? ​I'm seeing a "near-end" error on the panel display. My printer is still working though.

Answer
​The Ink Collector Unit (for waste ink) is 80% full.

​You can confirm the amount of ink in the collector unit and it is based on 6 ranks or ink level inside the unit. % 0/20/40/60/80/100%. It will be displayed on the panel.

  • Near-end error means the collector is 80% full
  • Important: Once you reach 100% the printer will not function.
  • Be prepared to have a brand new collector available well in advance.

Never attempt to open or clean out a full ink collector.

The ink collector has an internal ID chip that automatically resets the counter when installing a new one.

The accessory item is used to collect waste ink in the BT-12 printer. Each ink collector is good for up to 4000 prints depending on image size and print quality.

You can purchase this item through your local Roland dealer or at the Roland DGA store. Item, part number and link.
