  1. To further what Magenta said above, it could be an algae formation in P-2RA tank which has a way of sticking to the level sensors in the replenisher tank. I have had this problem for more times than I can remember.. I use the Fuji Frontier 7700. You need to clean the sensors and the tank and proceed to mix replenisher in manual mode through the system menu. Also check the poppet valves and blocked or bent piping as this can cause the difference in pumps output. What is your machine model and chemical cartridge brand?
  2. Seems like it is asking you to put in a floppy disk and press one of the function keys to continue.. I may be wrong but I'm sure someone on the forum can help you further.
  3. Hello, Have you checked the program timer settings? Which sort light is blinking? Are you talking about the green and red dome light? Or the series of lights on the side of sorter going down?
  4. Surprise guys! I had automatic replenisher mixing happen yesterday. I haven't yet cleaned or replaced the poppet valves. I don't honestly know what is happening.. I will wait till the next replenishment mix and see from there. I will post the results of course.
  5. Thanks! I will try that and report back..
  6. Hi guys, I had promised to post results after changing the parameters according to your advice. Much to my regret, the situation remains the same. I did the manual replenisher mix again yesterday as it failed to mix automatically. Error number remains same. I checked remaining P2RA and P2RB while draining and the difference between two is about 600 ml in favor of P2RB meaning that the pump for P2RB is outputting less chemical to the main tank. What further remedy can be administered? I am thinking to change the P2RA pump but am wondering if this is the solution.. Hoping to hear further ideas, if any, from you.
  7. Thank you. We use cp49e. I found that the settings were as follows: CD= 50ml/m2 BF=22ml/m2 I've changed them as per your figures. Let us see how it goes. I will also physically check the solution levels of p2ra and p2rb after next replenisher mix. I will post the results in next few days.
  8. BTW, what is the average number of 4x6 prints between two replenisher mixes?
  9. Thanks guys, I already did that last time but it doesn't seem to help! I'll do that once again and post the results.
  10. Hi Dave, After new manual replenisher mix I was waiting for the results. At the end I still got the 3907-03 P2RA replenisher management abonormal message. I checked the replenisher tanks and found that P2RB tank had 950 cc of chemical still in the tank while other tanks were empty. I suppose that's why the message comes up.. It also indicates that the P2RB pump is not outputting same amount as P2RA. I need to increment the output amount. Any ideas how to go about it?
  11. Thanks Dave, I will take out the replenisher tank and clean it properly along with all the related hoses to and from the pump. Will post the results as soon as this is resolved.
  12. Thanks for the reply Dave, The message is that the P2RA replenishment management is abnormal (5907-3) and I usually never let this go to processing amount exceeded and mix manually through the Functions setting of Pump Output Setting screen according to the recovery process 2 by draining the replenisher tanks. This means that I am loosing about 800-1000 prints of 4x6 worth of chemicals each time. The actual measured values from the pumps are around 66.7 mL and I have reset the amounts via the same screen. I have the necessary Service Manual and enough experience to see this through if I am guided.. I am starting to wonder if the controller pcb for this is at fault. Diagnostics for pumps and level sensors via Input/output checks are all ok. Are you referring to P2RA replenisher tank for crystalisation check or the process tank?
  13. Hi all, I am looking for the standard amounts for New pumps to be set for replenishment (F type, CP49e) that I can use as a starting point as I have replaced a pump and it seems that the p2ra and p2rb are not in balance so I am getting error messages after about 5000 prints of 4x6in. This also means that the replenisher cannot be mixed automatically and I have to do manual recovery each time. I have tried various settings including manual pump output calibration but it doesn't help. Any help is highly appreciated. Bakul
  14. Please check my post on back marker ribbon on this forum... No harm in giving it a try!
