MUTOH VALUEJET  VJ1604 

SELF DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION HEAD CHECKING AND ERROR CODES 

Self-Diagnosis Mode
1. If the system is in the operation mode or the selfdiagnosis menu mode, press [Power] key to turn the plotter off.
2. While holding down [Setting/value -] key, [Setting/value +] key and [>] key in the operation panel simultaneously, press [Power] key. The system will enter the self-diagnosis mode and display the self-diagnosis menu.
Operating Self-Diagnosis Mode
1. Press [<] key or [>] key in the operation panel to select the item to be diagnosed, and press [Enter] key.
# The selected item is accepted.
# If the item has a sub menu, the sub menu is displayed.
2. When the LCD monitor in the operation panel indicates a setting value, the value can be modified.
Press [Setting/value +] key or [Setting/value -] key in the operation panel to modify the value.
3. To save the modified value, press [Enter] key in the operation panel.
The modified set value is stored and the next item is displayed
NOTE
If you press [Cancel] key, or, [Setting/value +] key or [Setting/value -] key, instead of [Enter] key, the modification is not stored.
4. To quit the diagnosis, press [Cancel] key in the operation panel. The system returns to an upper hierarchy of the diagnosis menu.
5. To exit the self-diagnosis menu, press [Power] key.
Diagnosis Items in Self-Diagnosis Menu
Diagnosis item
Contents
Platen Adjustment Menu

Head Nozzle Check Menu
In this menu, you can check if the head nozzles that has been charged can discharge ink correctly by printing
a sample printing. To check the head nozzle, follow the steps below.
1. Set media as necessary.
2. After media is set, the machine prints out head nozzle check patterns in the following modes.
• 1 pass, Uni-D
• PF: 360 dpi
• CR: 360 dpi
3. Check the printed head nozzle check patterns for the following points.
• Ink nozzle discharge amount (omission, discontinuity, meandering)
• Satellite
• T fence
• Nozzle alignment in vertical direction
• Nozzle alignment in horizontal direction
Nozzle check: Prints out the pattern in the order of A to H > PIC1
Nozzle alignment in vertical direction: Prints out the pattern in the order of A to H > PIC2
Nozzle alignment in horizontal direction (CW direction): Prints out the pattern in the order of A to H > PIC 3
Nozzle alignment in horizontal direction (CCW direction): Prints out the pattern in the order of A to H  > PIC 4
