    Have change board, or repair it. Board repair is not driver changing. Engineer should be experienced and change what is really faulty.

    Problem on PDC20. It is typical fault on 350, 355, 370, 375. Many times repaired these boards, when motor randomly rotated to different direction.

    QSS2921DLS recovery

    The latest are DLS System software version 3.0 and enhanced service software version 3.0. No latter versions. Probably you didn't install enhanced service software. If on server 5 HD then also have archive and have to re-install software for it. After re-instillation can load backup ( if have it ) . Then all previous Kodak software settings will return. There are Kodak updates 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 120, 121, 122, 124, 125,126, 905, 922. Some of them already included on version 3.0. When have SCSI the best to make image files of hard disks. Then will not have problems, if one of them will be broken.

    All they are not printer boards. PWR20 is on scanner. CTP20 and PAC20 - on processor.

    Normally it is the electromagnet S770 that moves the selector that has been full of dirt. You will have to open the top of the dryer, find S770, mark the position on the plate with a sharp screwdriver and remove it for cleaning. After cleaning and reinstalling You can check the function in processor output check.

    Probably AOM driver faulty. Change G and B channels ( G input with B input and G output with B output ) . If after that see SOS error ( 2529 ) - replace AOM driver. Have repaired AOM driver. Also can exchange your not working with my working, or repair your faulty AOM driver.

    It is not driver. You have to install software for D703. I have the latest version, which can use even on any Windows ( even W10 x64 ) . Write private message, if want it. Also for D703 can offer duplex print software. To one EZ controller you can connect up to 8 printers, so can connect both printers there. If need can help do it online. Once I connected three printers to the same computer - one D701 and two D703. All worked well.

    I know that each lab of qss37 series has only one Capacity Booster PCB. No need to write it to me in every message. The only meaning of my listing of all possible Capacity Boosters was to show the process of the upgrade, Each Capacity Booster PCB for QSS37 contains ALL previous boosters' features - that was a meaning of my post. I have never written that qss3704 has 3 PCB at once installed. Thre is no need to make the upgrade of QSS37 like on QSS32 series adding one by one booster to increase the printing volume.

    Yes, you are right. To use MS01 you need re-install all ( scanner and server ) . If you do not want change system and work with FDIA software then take some faster computer, install there Windows XP or W7 x86 ( 32 bit version ) . Then install import export software and can work as you worked before. On scanner do not need to change anything. Pay attention - on Windows XP , or W7 x86 have to use the latest version - 5.5-0E-976.

    Easy. Open the top cover of the processor section and use magnet to block the sensor otherwise you will have alarm for opened cover. Remove the last rack and make print of one picture. Catch the picture after crossover and seek for the scratch. if you see the scratch - the cause of it in the previous racks/crossovers. If you do not see the scratch - the cause is in the last rack/crossover or dryer. See there. BTW: Your scratch has no attitude to the laser issue. Dirt traces loos left by dirty rollers in dryer section.

    If you do an input check on your rep tanks and they show up full. Restart the system, part of the start up procedure is to check the rep tanks and if full, they will register as full and you can go ahead and print for now. A last resort would be to try a reinstallation (with your printer back up floppies Printer back up FD and Scanner Backup FD) This should get you printing at least, until you can sort the problem. Did the chemical mix? Did you hear the water bend added? You would know as the mix uses about 8L so you would have been asked for more. Inside the rep tanks, there are float switches, if one got stuck, it would give a false reading and the 340 stops printing until the rep tanks are satisfied. You would need to look at your rep tanks and physically see if they are full. the cleaning of the nozzles as previously mentioned above is good periodic preventative maintenance. I have found that the Fuji chemical packs hold 3 bottles 1. Dev 2. Bleach part A 3. Bleach part B Some non Fuji Chemical packs have 3 bottles but the two bleach bottles are mixed already and goes against what the machine expects. therefore, there is more "Caking" or chemical residue in and around the nozzles. A trick for that is to give a quick clean around the nozzles area with the squeeze bottle of water, slowly and not too much but it really does help.

    I had this problem once. It was a buildup of hardened fixer in the mechanism under the cartridge (the sliding piece the cartridge sits on). The fixer was preventing the cartridge from being squeezed enough to puncture and drain. Take the covers off and clean out as much of the hardened white stuff as you can, then flush with a small amount of hot water. After you may need to drain the replenisher mixing tanks if the cartridge was partially opened. After all that , put in a new cartridge and let it mix.

    Frontier 350 paper jam

    Thanks for all the replys. Problem was solved by the tehnician. The problem was in the sensors D571, D572, D573 (alot of dirt etc) and in the suckers section. The suckers didn't grab de pictures and drop the in the right place(left right). Now it's working fine. Just printed 60 pictures 10x15 and everything it's ok. Thank you all. have a nice day

    Frontier 350 paper jam

    this can be a very nasty problem. It can be from anywhere, from the magazine, exposure section, racks, or dryer. Anyway, it is a transport issue. Most of my problems have been in racks. If prints are glued and mostly wet between, then they overlapped in racks. My oppinion. Anyway, ugly problem.

    The only true way to manage your rep. rates is to run Control Strips (often) and not wait till you have a problem. Though Digital is new to me since I took a few years off till now I have been in the industry for 25 plus years and it still amazes me that suck a critical tool such as control strips are never run untill after someone suspects they have an issue. If you run and plot controls daily you will always know where your machine is running and if you need to adjust for low utilization and remember in the long run it's alot cheaper to run controls than it is to have to dump and remix.

    Each print exhausts the chemical by a certain amount. The machine monitors how much paper is being processed, and replenishes accordingly. Technically, if you are processing a few prints or a whole bunch of prints, the machine should replenish the amount needed. In the real world, it is generally accepted that you have to replenish a bit higher if your volume is low to help make up for the effect of oxidation on the developer. Frontier minilabs aren't as susceptible to this , however, due to high level of sealing between the crossovers and the tanks. There is very little space for air to get at the chemistry. The standard rates set by Fuji are usually perfect for both high and low volume labs. If they are not, you will see it on your process control strips. If your plots tend to climb up, then you should drop the rates a little, or increase them if the plots are dropping. Of course it is also important to regularly do pump output checks for the replenisher system. Fuji does sell low replenishment chemistry for Frontiers that are consistently seeing large print counts. This saves about 10 % on chemistry costs. Your Fuji distributor can look at your paper purchases and advise if you have enough volume to use this.

    I need urgent help please. While printing normally, my machine asked me to insert a cartridge (chemicals). I did so and the chemicals started to empty out (i'm not sure if mixing was done). a few seconds later I received the error message; "E-2673 Opening of Replenisher Cartridge Failed. Consult your technical representative" That message is followed by the error message "W-2680 Number of Prints Exceeds Limit" And I cannot print anymore. I tried emptying out the tanks and putting another cartridge in but the same thing happened. Now I'm stranded and I can't print at all. I've restarted several times as well. Any help is greatly appreciated.
