  1. Noritsu 3101(Computer Upgrade)

    Upgrading 3001 have the same requirements. I have upgrade some ones using ASUS P5GC-VM, ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 and Core 2 Duo. AMD platform also can be used, but I don't know details. There are many threads here and on http://www.photolabforum.com/ about upgrading 30th labs. Search them.
  2. QSS 3001

    0. You must have Backup. If not, try to restore "C:\Noritsukoki\QS-30\Data" folder from crashed HDD. 1. Install Windows 2000 (for example, from Recovery CD) and device drivers. 2. Install Service Pack 4. 3. Run DelOldDrivers.bat from QSS Main System Software distributive. 4. Install QSS Main System Software. 5. Reboot. 6. QSS will start automatically and will upgrade devices. After finishing upgrade process, exit program by "Closedown Checks" - "Quit The Application". 7. Install Profile Data. 8. Run QSS again and restore last Backup. 9. Set up minilab. 10. When minilab work properly, make Ghost image of drive C:.
  3. noritsu 3001

    We have two 3001 labs for 5 and 3 years. We bought them used. And we have repaired laser of one of them for 4000 USD (with one year of guarantee). But I do not think that laser of 3001 has more troubles than others.
  4. And I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy NY too!!!! PS: Nice site's design
  5. Noritsu 3101(Computer Upgrade)

    QSS-29xx from version H001 and 31xx from version G001 supports multicore CPUs.
  6. Noritsu 3101(Computer Upgrade)

    If you are using Intel's platform, motherboard must be based on 945 chipset or older. Any CPU, that supported by this motherboard must work.

    Use daily service mode password generator http://minilabmaster.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?action=downloadfile;file=qsspwd.zip
  8. Noritsu 2901

    nikosfra, can you tell us exactly full name of your new motherboard?
  9. Virus removal

    Mainly, periodically make HDD backup images of properly working lab, using "Norton Ghost" or "Acronis TrueImage". Save they on two different places (removable media, etc). And you can recover system with Noritsu software and all settings per 20 min. If your lab is already infected, try to check minilab with standalone antivirus tools, for example DrWeb CureIt! or DrWeb LiveCD.
  10. Mangesh, so, how much you want for your solution
  11. What is the cost of this conversion?
  12. This program's result depend on time settings in operating system. You can calculate password yourself: 1. Write date in format DDMMYYYY in reverse order ( for example, today 03 Dec 2008 = 30218002 ) 2. Divide this number on 2260 and take four first digits of fractional part ( 30218002/2260=13370.797345132743 )
  13. LCD vs CRT Lab Monitor

    Thank you, mpphotos. Liz, One small thing: CRT monitor have screen proportions 4:3, but the screen proportions of most 17-19'' nonwide LCD monitors is 5:4 (1280x1024). You can: 1. Like we, set display resolution to 1024x768, but the image will be a little stretched vertically (nonsquare pixels). 2. Set native monitor resolution with square pixels (1280x1024), but the QSS main window will be too small. 3. Find 15-17" monitor with native resolution 1024x768 or find monitor with 4:3 matrix (1400x1050 or 1600x1200) and set display resolution to 1024x768.
  14. LCD vs CRT Lab Monitor

    Dear Liz. Yes, You can simply plug new monitor, but You may take incorrect colors on it. You must adjust it. QSS software don't recognize monitor. QSS software thinks, that you have monitor, installed with Profile Data. Anyway, you can turn back the stock monitor. PS: I didn't work with 33th machine, but I don't think, that it have serious differences with 30th machine in computer part.
