  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Here is the recovery DVD for 8807- Y12 (PC19 & PC20) https://transfer.pcloud.com/download.html?code=5Z238aZ7fzhGUdTh5kZ9YFzZ24fITfUkjYLVma9XkwbHqfzO1Pv7
  6. Great. Thanks for posting back and saying what fixed it.
  7. The username is Administrator the password is 22 (Assuming this is not a Kodak DLS software machine)
  8. 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.
  9. It's going to be some kind of data corruption. Try loading in your backup data from a date before the problem started.
  10. Does it look like this on the screen when you scan in the positive films? What do the prints from positive look like? Has it only just started doing this? Does it do the light source update normally?
  11. You can only alter the focus value manually if it has been focused at some point with the special laser cut focus chart. The only solution I can think of for you is to get hold of somebody else's backup data, load this in, do the light source registration, then perform the focus manually the way mcpix did it in the above post.
  12. Try removing the C.V.P (Backprinter) unit and see if it stops it jamming. If it does stop the jamming, the C.V.P unit will be too close to the paper and will need to adjusted.
  13. I need the full error message number.
  14. With a wide band like that it will most likely be an internal issue with the MLVA head itself. Unfortunately you will have to replace the MLVA head.
  15. Those values look pretty normal. Have you tried doing the uniformity pattern 2, 3 & 4 again after doing the cleaning? Can you make a 12" (305mm) width light grey print, and scan it with a flatbed scanner at at least 300dpi so I can see what the uniformity looks like. You can use a free file sharing site like files.fm to upload the image to so you can share it here.
