    Help On DX100 Problem

    is the gap still there after PH Changing, maybe your old PH is fine, id ont know which one is but the pump is round, here if you buy Original Epson d700 PH from epson, you'll get a pump , it's a package, they said it is better to replace those at the same time, it's just like gear and chain at bike

    Help On DX100 Problem

    are you sure the print head is in a good condition? is the gap at the same place or changing? why not change pump at same time with PH ?

    Fujifilm Frontier Reborn, anyone knows about it ?

    Here at my Country, Fujifilm since end of last year start selling NEW Frontier 550 with full backup, warranty and contract service.They called it Fujifilm Frontier Reborn, with Reborn sticker on the body. I just want to ask does Fujifilm really back to silver halide minilab of their own not Noritsu made? or it just last stock selling.This is tempting if they are really back, in my experience Fujifilm wetlab more durable than Noritsu. And one more thing, here Fujifilm stop selling DX100, they now have DE100 , 4 inks drylab with resolution 1440 dpi (DX100 720ppi)

    Ask about DX100

    try do nozzle check before prints, i believe you turn on Periodic Nozzle Check . Tech Support here ask us to turn off this feature to save ink and make printer faster.

    How is Business ?

    90 % of our order is passport size photos, with that conditions, we ditch our Noritsu laser lab, now we use Epson Drylab, and as backup we use Epson l1800 and refill it with Epson Drylab ink, the result is superb. We sell passport size as package, per package is use 4x6" paper size we sell it $ 2, and my customers are happy. The up size using drylab, now we can process photo very fast, our customer can process their passport size photo under 3 minutes. For 12" size we use Canon large format printer, those printer has very low maintenance cost. Our Canon even have LIFETIME Print Head warranty, as long we use Canon ink, which is that we do. At the old days, we use several Noritsu Laser Printers, we prints amateur photographers , but day by day they asked very low prices and demand high quality. Every day we prints 5000 - 7000 prints per day back then. But to maintance those machines is very pain in the ass, contract service cost increasing year by year, the tech very difficult to find. Now we leave ameteurs photographers services and we provides retails service to end customers only. We dont print wedding except for ours, we dont print studio except ours. For the future, i planned to ditch photo printing business , 5 years max, and i'm out.

    Fujifilm Frontier DE 100

    then dont buy it, use larg format printer like canon pro, here in Indonesia, Canon gives us Print Head warranty for LIFETIME as long you use OEM ink. i know that's not ideal for 4x6 size, but at the end we need to make profit doesnt we ? with Surelab d700 or DX100, what you'll find is one trouble to another. When i bought this printer , they promised me PH will last for 100k prints, but that is bullshit, my printhead failed after less than 10k prints 4x6. After PH replacement the printer was loosing it's detail, i dont think the replacement PH is the same as PH on new unit. after 13 months, mainboard was failed and it costs me twice than PH price, my ink house was failed before.
