  1. Hi guys! I replace my Noritsu 2611 with Fuji frontier LP 1000P. First month I’m cleaning all machine, tanks, replenishent pumps because was too rusty. While I was brushing my Frontier I see is similar like Noritsu. After cleaning - first picture - I was wondering!!!! were excellent!!! First problem is: with Frontier LP 1000 I did not get any instalation FD or CD with software for Scanner or Image processor. Fuji PC is made 1997 and OS is Win NT 3.51 and I'm afraid that the PC weakest link in proces In user manual I see that installation CD contains setup softw and app with name DIPPSET .EXE And FD with name “A” i “B” conatains LUT dat . if someone could send instalation software or tell me wher I could find ? Thanks! My screen

  4. Hello friends! I have problem with printing pictures from negative film, pictures a too black (exposure time is long). (Dihronic filter slowly work) No errors- I clean completely lamphouse section and dihronic filter sliders, clean zoom lens. I change reflector lamp and make setings and its OK (picture 1) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cKjmOYpKc6N21MSzM1blk5ZlE/view?usp=sharing I try Emulsion number change and test is OK (picture 2) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cKjmOYpKc6M0FRa2xMc0xrVlU/view?usp=sharing But when printing from 35mm negative on 135 ANM picture are dark (picture 3) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cKjmOYpKc6bVdIYUp2VFRCTU0/view?usp=sharing I try put value of Density before printing to “A” (density value -1.-2, -3, -4……-9, A, B, C, D, E) (picture 4) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cKjmOYpKc6U2FhVlVjZVVubW8/view?usp=sharing Any good idea that I can use to fix the problem….

  5. Hi! I need poppet valve for 2611 I find some valve on ebay for 7-8 $ but shipping is too much for this. I searching for less shipping! Thanks!
  6. Hi all! My 2611 with VFP8 working perfectly Only I hawn't Noritsu "white grease" for lubrication bolt of VFP8 head. What else grease I can use for lubrication VFP8 bolt? Thanks!
  7. Hi Toufik! do you mean on System Software (1-A ... 1-F) Floppy disks for 2611?
  8. I haven't more Kodak paper to do test, and can remember how look Kodak test, but I think Fuji test is lighter. I buy Kodak paper and try make again test and will see I make 18 step setup but speed is same (each of color vfp make for 1 min).. I can't select "Shif 3" not exist, only "Shift 2" Maybe, how you say Dave, Fuji paper needs a slightly longer exposure time, but is no logic. Thanks Dave.
  9. Dave I not understand this: I make daly setup: - put paper magazine - Kodak - surface (1) speed VFP-8 is 58pct/hr - take out Kodak paper and load paper magazine - Fuji - surface (2) speed VFP-8 is 40pct/hr Is not same CD temperature for both of them? I try again make 18 step setup print, and before clean densitometer...
  10. I use Kodak paper 4x6 inch and processing speed VFP-8 was 58 print/hour. And, I want to cross on Fuji paper, I change paper in paper magazine and make only "emulsion nuber change" after this procedure processing speed VFP-8 is fall down 40 print/hour! Where I mistake? And how back processing speed on 58 print/hour? Thanks
  11. I just upload video and see what happened http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBN4W_jxtNU
