Spots on Negatives

Recommended Posts

I finally got my Noritsu up and running and I'm seeing these spots right across the center of the negatives. I'm wondering if anyone could help me determine what they might be from. They are very small and seem to happen the more I run film through my machine.  The spots streak across a few negatives and then stop in a rounded formation, almost like a droplet made of dots. I've already changed out the squeegee rack and that did nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

can spots be washed away manually ? Rinse / clean all processing racks and dryer rack. check for any roller surface have the same sports pattern.  Check film loading box too.  Good luck !

I can wash them away, but it is difficult to do so. That makes me think it has something to do with the final rinse. I'm wondering if using tap water to make the rinse would do it. I've flushed the tanks and am using distilled now. There's also a foam roller right after the squeegee that could be the culprit.
