  1. Hi, Our FMPC computer running MS01 3.1 crashed today and lost it's hard drive. When reinstalling, I got to the point where it uploads data to the LP2000SC. The printer shut itself off, then I got a communication error on the computer. Now I can't restart the printer (and I have shut the breaker on and off). The screen on the LP200SC displays 'Starting' and counts down to 0, then it just stops. Is there any way of recovering from this? Thanks..

    Could be a gamut issue. Photo paper just doesn't reproduce really bright saturated colors. High end ink jet printers like the Epson 9900 do a better job of that. Photo printers have better gradation, however, as they are true continuous tone printers . If you have PD mode setup on your Frontier you should try printing it that way. PD mode does have significantly broader gamut than sRGB.
  3. I had a similar line once. Turned out to be a small thread caught under the laser unit. The air from the laser caused it to move around, and that is why the line was wavy and not straight like it usually is.
  4. The condition area just shows you what conditions the custom functions are set to. To setup the custom functions you have to do so in the setup menus. Not familiar with the SP3000 so you will have to look around a bit to find the menu. The dots you show are noise. Turning off hypersharpening does help reduce noise. Also make sure the lens and light source is clean. The less light, the more noise. The ccd sensor can also get dirty over time, but that is a much more involved process to clean, and you may need a Fuji technician to do this for you.

    Make sure you are using the proper lookup table (LUT) for the paper you are using. LUT is set in the paper magazine setup screen.
  6. http://www.fujifilmeurope.be/fuji/fhvip.nsf/files/manuals/$file/RA4manual_v3.pdf This manual explains how to do quality control . http://www.xrite.com/documents/manuals/en/810-64_810_Densitometer_Operation_Manual_en.pdf This is for your X-rite 810. It will read paper strips.
  7. Fuji Frontiers by default enlarge an image by 18 pixels to provide a bleed and prevent white edges on prints. If your file is sized properly (300dpi at the dimensions of the desired print size) you can print 'No Resize' and no bleed is added. This should get rid of the cropping.. If you find images are not positioned properly on the paper and cropping from one side or another, this can be adjusted in the printer menu. Refer to your manual for instructions.
  8. Here is the procedure for an SP2000. This may or may not work on an SP3000. Search for file called Rvon.reg . Right click the file and choose 'edit' Look for a line that says "Rev135ON"=dword:00000000" Change the last 0 to a 1 and save the file. Now double click the Rvon.reg file and you should get a message saying 'Rvon has been successfully entered into the registry'. Note that an SP2000 runs Windows NT 4, not Windows XP like the SP3000. If you don't have the Rvon.reg file, then maybe try running regedit.exe and search for Rev135ON. If you find it change the key as described above and save your changes. The scanner will probably have to restarted (rebooted) in order to recognize the changes.
  9. Are you printing your images 'Fill-In', 'Fit-In' or 'No Resize' ?
  10. I don't have experience with the SP3000, but other Fuji scanners will only give you positive option with manual carriers unless an option is switched in the windows registry. Black and white never has dust correction, as the technology (similar to kodak's 'ice') will not work with black and white due to it not being a dye based image. Color dye's are invisible to infrared light, so a scan with infrared will show all the dirt the software needs to retouch. Scanning a black and white neg with infrared shows the whole image, just like a scan with white light. The exception is Ilford's XP2 film, which although black and white is also chromagenic. We scan it as color film and with monotone correction turned on. This results in black and white scans or prints, and dust correction.
  11. First step would be to setup all the available paper sizes and surfaces. You find this in the maintenance menu called Direct Driver Setup I think. Press Ctrl and click on it, then you are allowed to make changes. Did you have a floppy disk backup of the old installation? If so that data can be recalled into the new installation, and may solve your problems.
  12. Does MS 3.1 work with files in AdobeRGB color space? 3.0 thinks everything sRGB.
  13. Try setting up a custom function that turns off 'Hyper Sharpening'.
  14. No, unfortunately. They are very different.
  15. Have you ruled out chemistry issues? Do you run control strips? It could be a few things with the print head as well. The cable that runs to it often has intermittent failures, as well as the led's could be near the end of their lifespan. There are lots of used parts available for these machines, If you are in North America I would try www.lucht.com.
