  1. blue spot

    That's great news! For the benefit of others reading this post, can you explain how you solved it?
  2. I'm finding what you are saying hard to believe! How exactly is the "experienced operator" using the machine to print? When the "control board" was replaced was the software upgrade done? To me this sounds more like a software issue, rather than a PCB issue; especially as you say the machine can still print.
  3. blue spot

    Is this happening on all widths of paper? Or is it only on one magazine? Please upload a scanned image of the emulsion test print from the paper magazine you used to make the above print. Also take a screen shot of the colorimeter readings when you do the daily setup.

    What does the emulsion test print look like? Check the chemistry is good.
  5. Noritsu QSS-3102 Turbo Lane Selection

    So it would appear the centre part of the rack rollers are driving more than on the outer edges of the rollers. (rollers swollen in the centre) I would try to experiment by putting a few turns of splicing tape on the outer edges (say 2" from the edge) of a few of the outer rollers in the racks to make the print twist in the opposite direction to correct the skew. A more permanent material to use would be heat shrink tubing. The damage to the prints will be happening in the dryer, so if you can lessen the skew before it enters the dryer the prints will be fine.
  6. Noritsu QSS-3102 Turbo Lane Selection

    Are you printing the 6x4 prints using 4" or 6" paper? Which direction is the print twisting when it is exiting the dryer? Example 1 or 2? 1. Is it the left lane twisting in a clockwise direction and the right lane twisting in an anti-clockwise direction? 2. Is it the left lane twisting in a anti-clockwise direction and the right lane twisting in a clockwise direction?
  7. How To Connect Kodak G4 To Ms01?

    If the Kodak G4 Kiosk has the Fuji enabler loaded it will allow orders to be printed on a Fuji Frontier printer from the Kodak G4 Kiosk. MS01 software has nothing to do with the G4 Kiosk, MS01 is the software that drives the Fuji Frontier printers.
  8. QSS 3201 Power problem

    I think the first issue is the machine is in program timer mode. Hold down the green button on the sorter until the machine comes on. The second issue will be related to the temperature of the LED unit in the scanner. Go to maintenance, input check, input section, LED light source unit, Check the temperature display. It needs to be 45.0C if it's over this temperature, check the filter on the bottom of the scanner is not clogged, check the cooling fans on the back of the scanner are running. If it's below 45.0C you will need to increase the temperature around the scanner unit with a heater.
  9. Noritsu S-1800 Film scanner

    I see no difference between the HS-1800 and the S-1800. Both are connected by USB and need EZ controller, or the Twain driver software.
  10. QSF V30 RA language

    No you don't need any software to change from another language to English. Every machine has 2 languages installed; the first language is always English, so you would only need to load the software from the floppy disk if you wanted a different second language. i.e changing from German to Italian for example. Just follow what I have written in my fist post to change from any language to English. If you can't read it! Press Mode, press down arrow 7 times, press yes, press down arrow 3 times, yes, then +/- keys to switch between the 2 languages, then yes to register the setting. Note you must be in service mode to do this.
  11. QSF V30 RA language

    Enter the service mode (turn on DIP switch 2 on the main control PCB) Mode, scroll down to floppy/ standard setting, Standard setting 3, Language, use the + / - key to toggle between English and the other installed language (German in your case) Press yes to register the change.
  12. How to turn off Colour Correction

    And what happens if you turn the scanner back to on, and change the CF value to say 90?
  13. The most likely difference will be a different type of connector plug. The actual pump itself will be the same.
  14. How to turn off Colour Correction

    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.
  15. How to turn off Colour Correction

    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.
