  1. Looking for a part for a 3202 printer.

    Sorry for not getting back on this, but that did solve the problem and was a whole lot cheaper than other options. Machine is now running nice and quietly!
  2. I'm ;looking for a fan for a 3202. Part number is W409647-01 and description is DC Blower unit. I suspect the same part might be also on the 3711, but with a different part number. Can anyone help me on this? Thanks Alan
  3. Speed Of Upgraded 3001

    We have a 3202 with all the options, but when we get large orders with high camera resolutions, from cards or discs, we drop the file size down in Irfanview to 1200px high (4" paper @ 300 dpi). This works fine, and we have done it for 5 years now. We also have Whitech and Kodak kiosks - the Whitech still send the full res customer files to the lab, but the kodak units drop the file size down to the actual print resolutuion. The Kodak kiosks are MUCH faster in that regard - there are probably other kiosks out there which also reduce the file size down.
  4. Qss 3212 S2 Film Scanner

    Can you uncheck it in option registration? I'm not in my lab at the moment, but I'm sure someone else will chime in.
  5. Kodak G3 Kiosk Screen Problem

    I don't know where you are but I have 2 spare G3 screens which are going to trash soon. If you want one, it is yours for the postage costs from Australia
  6. Video To Dvd

    The pommies call them a car boot sale, we call them trash and treasure, or even garage sales - great places for cheap old equipment, like a Beta player for $10 which has been working now for 8 months, and misc MiniDv and 8mm cameras!
  7. Video To Dvd

    We run 5 Panasonic EZ48 and EZ49 units and they just keep going and going and going. Sure they need repair sometimes but the next 2 orders pay for the repair. We also have a stand alone VCR hooked into the back of one for VHS-C tapes and odd ball ones whee the Panasonics just won't play it. I buy small TV's at boot sales for $5 each to use as monitors. It is becoming the most profitable part of our business. We also have a miniDv camera and Hi8/8mm camera hooked into them for doing camcorder tapes. We would average 500 tapes a month easy.
  8. I don't think the staff member has any idea about what goes on "behind" the scenes as Magenta has said! I know my staff sometimes tell me what a great sale they made when they sell a camera 2% up on cost and wonder why I'm not too impressed if they have not sold the add ons! I'm sorry about Jessops and those who work there, but maybe they just didn't change with the times fast enough!
  9. Kodak G3 New Hardware Version 2.0 Working

    Dave - our G4 units work great with iPhones, as long as we supply the cable to connect them. The G3's were written off years ago, although I do have one at home for those little jobs I need for myself, but I'd love to give them a new lease on life, and free up the space!
  10. Kodak G3 New Hardware Version 2.0 Working

    Can you share what you have done to update/upgrade it? I have 6 in a shed that are gathering dust, and a V6 disc which I'd love to load on them.
  11. Fp363 N2 Turns To Mud After 30 Days

    I'd be surprised if anything, mutant or otherwise, could live in C41 bleach! Lets go to basics! Is it the right bleach? Are the rep rates set correctly? Has the output been measured and entered to calibrate the pumps? Is the aerator working - is it giving just a little froth to show that it is OK? Is it using the correct starter? Is the recirc pump ok under load? Can you see the solution moving in the tank? Are the filters OK? Is there any residual solution left when you mix which could contaminate? IS THERE ENOUGH FILM GOING THROUGH THE MACHINE to keep the bleach active? Can't think of much more!
  12. Marketing ideas

    Agree on the wallet stuffers on fogged/old/out dated paper - and use the same files to put photos in photo frames, and posters in the store. Get out and promote on radio or something to get NEW customers - wallet stuffers only work for those customers coming in your door. We spend over A$25,000 a year on radio and IT WORKS! We promote movie films, slides and videos to DVD and after 3 years it is STILL going stong and we are making a huge margin out of it. We are now doing Photobooks instore and off our website, and they are increasing by the week. We are now offering an upsell to archival DVD's for A$10 extra on the normal cost - and we are getting about a 70% uptake on it. Diff in cost between a standard DVD is about $1. Things like mugs, mousemats, jigsaws etc are easy to do, although they do need some investment - ours was paid off in about 9 months. Hope these ideas help - you can hear our ads on the website when you click on the services. www.huttstreetphotos.com.au
  13. Noritsu 3202 Chemistry

    The mixing instructions will be packed with the chemistry. Who did you buy the lab from - do they offer any support? Check here http://support.en.kodak.com.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/43903/kw/kodak%20chemicals/selected/true More here http://www.kodak.com/global/en/business/retailPhoto/products/chemicals/chemicalsMain.jhtml?pq-path=12085/12319 lots here http://www.kodak.com/global/en/business/retailPhoto/techInfo/zManuals/z100.jhtml?pq-path=12339 I know this is all Kodak info, but it should give you a start. You should also have a Densitomer and control strips to check if it is all set up correctly. You will need filters for the machine, and also make sure you have the correct starter for the initial mix. I'm sure Tetenall wouild be able to give you help also.
  14. At first glace Neil, it looks good.
  15. So far, it doesn't look any different!! 8)
