      Mini Lab Help.com For Sale   03/16/2017

      2017 - Minilab Help could face closure at the end of the year. Our outgoing running cost and time is no longer being covered by our sponsorship. 
      With almost 10,000 members we have grown to be perhaps the worlds largest forum for Mini Lab Help. 
      We would now consider the sale of this web site, please contact us if you wish to discuss.

  1. And what happens if you turn the scanner back to on, and change the CF value to say 90?
  2. The most likely difference will be a different type of connector plug. The actual pump itself will be the same.
  3. The Photometrey Function is only activated when you select it from the F (Functions) menu when printing. It's not an automatically applied setting. I believe this is what colour failure is, and this is what the scanner is trying to correct. The scanner does not add the cyan to the background it's already like this in the film. What is the difference to the scan with the settings on or off? Try a higher CF number like 100 and see if it's any better.
  4. Lowering the CF (colour failure) value will stop the image with lots of red in it changing to cyan. 0 means no CF correction, the standard value is 80. Enter the service mode, Menu → Extension → Setup → Scanner Setup → Parameters (Negative) → Service Parameter You can completely turn off the colour correction by changing the scanner setting from ON to C_OFF, or for both colour and density corrections to be off set it to NONE.
  5. That is incorrect. DX sensor 1 and DX sensor 3 are also used for film detection, so if there is a problem with the detection on these sensors it will give you the error "Remove the 135 film from the film carrier" so no scanning will be possible. With regard to the problem after replacing the DX sensor LED's, probably they are too bright now so are not seeing the film, just carry out the 'Sensor LED Light Intensity Adjustment' this should adjust the intensity of the newly fitted LED's. I have seen problems with the sensors always showing light, this normally is a failure on one of the PCB's inside the AFC.
  6. Go to Maintenance: 2260 → Extension → Maintenance → Self-diagnostic → Image Path Check See what the result is. I would check the LVPECL cable from the Printer I/F Main PCB to Laser control PCB. J/P455 to J/P1513 Check all the cooling fans are operating. At a guess it could be either the Printer I/F Main PCB or the Laser control PCB or possibly a noisy power supply.
  7. Is this a 3501i Plus (ibeam model) ?
  8. The problem is solved, analogman sent me a PM thanking me. Once he typed 22 for the password it worked. Prior to that he had typed administrator 22 for the password which obviously didn't work.
  9. The blue laser is weaker than the green so the % test numbers will be higher on the blue laser. This kind of noise 99% of the time comes directly from the laser head itself. The laser test is not helpful for diagnostics of this issue. You can try swapping the green and blue driver boards around (assuming they are the same) it may solve the problem for a short while. If that doesn't help the only solution is to have the green laser repaired/ replaced.
  10. Check the unit is attached properly to the runners, it's just hooked on. You will need to make a print with the door open (put magnet on sensor) and try and see what's happening.
  11. It's most likely an AOM driver problem. To me the prints look cyan/ Red which would indicate a problem with the Red AOM driver.
  12. Here is the recovery DVD for 8807- Y12 (PC19 & PC20) https://transfer.pcloud.com/download.html?code=5Z238aZ7fzhGUdTh5kZ9YFzZ24fITfUkjYLVma9XkwbHqfzO1Pv7
  13. Great. Thanks for posting back and saying what fixed it.
  14. The username is Administrator the password is 22 (Assuming this is not a Kodak DLS software machine)
  15. You can try initializing the scanner slope correction data for positive. Menu, Extension, Setup, Scanner Setup, Scanner slope correction Positive, Master data. Also check the 135F data as well. The other thing you can try is doing the paper profile calibration. Menu, Extension, Setup, Laser Setup, Paper Specification Registration/Setup, F: Functions, Printer Profile Calibration. Other than that not much more you can do as an operator. The next stage would be data initialization of the scanner, and set it up again, but this would need the focus to be re-done with special jigs. Other possible causes are corruption of the profile data, you could try uninstalling and re-installing the profile data again. Just a thought was the profile data updated with the software? As old profile data on new software can cause strange things like this. I think the latest is 7.19.
