    I will let the new owners introduce themselves once the finer details and full hand over is complete. I understand that the main model will still be in place.

    Spots on Negatives

    Make sure you replace rinse regularly. Gets kind of funky if you just keep in and don't dump it. Good job tracking it down.

    There is probably a problem with the ink capping unit. It's purpose is to seal the bottom of the head when the machine is not in use.

    Hello everyone, The short story is - after 14 years with FUJI SFA 238 with Digital Carrier eFilming my dad bought used Frontier 340. I`m not sure the software installed on in but company who installed it said it is customized software from Frontier 500. Probablly FE with some additions. The computer is Dell Optiplex 960 with core duo and Windows XP. Is it possible to install imaging cotroler software on widows 7 X64 and have more than 4 gb of ram? Is there newer possible software for computer and Frontier? MS01??? I need to tell that working with this software is pain in the A$$ compared with some old chinese software for eFilming. The biggest drawback is working with resolution 800x600 to see 6 images full screen ( I know that it is from 2004 but still ... ) and no posibiliti of reviewing order before print or reprint additional photos from it.

    Aom driver unit 3501 PLUS

    Hello. You have to look QSS3501 PLUS diagram. There just one AOM driver. Probably you looked at QSS3501 diagram ( model without PLUS ) . These minilabs are different. In your minilab can be faulty G AOM driver, or G laser head. Can use AOM driver from any Noritsu minilab, or few Fuji models ( made by Noritsu ) . Can use any AOM driver model - new ( made by Noritsu ), or older ( made by Matsushita ). AOM driver can be from any color - do not need search AOM driver from G channel. This minilab can have G laser heads from two makers. Look laser type on software version check, or look laser driver type ( J391160 or J391231 ) . Start from AOM driver. The biggest possibility that it is faulty. If it will not help - then instability from laser head. If need can repair AOM driver, or laser head for you. Have full working AOM drivers and G laser heads and can exchange with your not working.

    To install 330 can use S2, S3, S4 and S12. S9 is for FMPC. A1 and C4/C5 is already installed on your minilab and you do not need install them again. Minilab computer can work only with Windows 2000. Server can work on XP, or Windows 2000. I think server should work with W7 32 bit version. Didn't test myself, with FE software ( S2 ) , but with FDIA ( C4/C5 on server ) it works well. To install server on scanner have find server name. You have rename server computer, because names should match. Then have create user FRONTIER with password FRONTIER, change required computer configurations and after that can install software.

    Latest version 19. It was typing error. EZ controller - 6.72. Added QSS390x minilabs, EZ controller instillation interface absolutely different, if compare with previous versions. I already helped him to install MS01 and upgrade to version 4. Did what should do MS01 seller. Company sold software, but how to install correctly have to explain someone else.

    Not all lab owners are English speaking and understand what word "CYAN" means. So we name it as blue.
