  1. Dks1550 Lamp Burn Out Message

    yea i noticed that too late. Id doesnt change fact tht i still have PS. And heard about the problem with Mexico bulb as well - It seems that resistance of these bulbs is higher than original Germany manufactured lamps - but is not aware of that and reads this as "burn out" . it must be possible to set somewhere in program - but how does it work and where to look ... no idea yet.

  5. Developer Pump Does Not Replenish Dks1710

    Dirty sensors usually dos not affect level readings. But foam touching sensors and blocked overflow hole .. yes for sure. think now where this foam came from this will be main problem.

  8. Error During The Densitometer Measurement

    fiber optic cable could be badly positioned or broken. check if it is properly fixed in the densitometer.
  9. Kis1550 Stb Chemistry Goes Bad

    I spoke today with my client (prompt action - machine failed - LCD stepmotor shaft broke down...) and asked about the algaes. I must say I didnt know about this too much since I had poor field experience but problem exists and is quite important. Friend solved problem using the reverse osmosis filter. So all water which goes to the machine is filtered by the reverse osmosis filter - fresh water for tanks and also supply water. no glones and algaes inside or - if machine is not exploited too much - the process is very slow. from the caravaning experience - if you pass the water through silver plate or small net or even neck chain - the algae grow will be also much much slower.
  10. Exposure Lamp

    Lamp does not require ANY reset. just plug new one and put it right in the place. If you put new lamp and still have "burnt out" message - check if lamp contacts are OK but first of all - check the thermal fuse near lamp is OK.
  11. Kis1550 Stb Chemistry Goes Bad

    One remark more. u said "Middle STAB tank"... Water is dosed from the same source to all sections. U should have problem in all STAB sections, or at least 2nd and 3rd if we take into account that first one is always getting BL/FIX. It's not the water. check overflow pipe is not blocked...
  12. Kis1550 Stb Chemistry Goes Bad

    Check and replace filters. regular way.Also check if your turbines on the tank's bottom are working. no circulation could be issue. First time hearing you have algaes in stab tank - unless temperatures are very high and you could not have very much work to do.
  13. Kodak System 89. Dks 1500

    Crazy... This is very interesting when people try to do things they have no idea about. Man - could you name the board you have replaced ? No? so WHY you touched it if you don't know what's the service ? This is piezo board, it's a MSB driver responsible for resolution. HAS NOTHING COMMON with the lamp. Put back the old board on place. If u have burnt cables just replace harness, resolder them with insulation, try to add-repair with the cables of the same or bigger diameter. Better clean this mess then check your machine and call us again. And remember - it is better to ask first, then act. Skilled forum members would focus only on the machine faults, not on mistakes you have created.
  14. Dks 1550 Printing Problem

    Which dumb set machine to do that ? check margins, do centering.
  15. Well... Glad I could help. Case is really strange. Ralpmalh's technician was considered about (in his opinion) quite low exposure time on green color. He wanted to raise it - so he put ( in my opinion) almost all filters he got in hand including 2x Magenta 10 - actually the weakest he found. For sure guy overshot his point - exposure times were between 600 and 980ms per color (!) but I really dont know from which book he learned that it was OK, as he assured owner few times... Removed all 4 (!) filters from the head, made filters adjustment procedure - machine asked for Yellow 10 only. After this we did 4-5 paper calibration attempts per cassette until we got clear status, and we got very good pictures. PRNU at 7 should be performed after this.... Machine is up and running. For all - If anyone want to check exposure times - go to the SU -> filters tab and run the program selecting the right track for the machine. the correct exposure times should be 40 ms < Tps_red < 150 ms 40 ms < Tps_green < 80 ms 40 ms < Tps_Blue < 80 ms U can check If u have right stuff in the head - just remove filters form expo head - and start procedure. U will see in mid fields what kind of filters machine is requesting. if you have 0 with filters - it's OK - exposure times are shown top and below filter fields and should be equal. Note that after very long machine use, your acetate filters in expo head could be burned out so they won't work as they should... it would be good to perform this check every 2-3 years.and - if you see the burned circle after filter case opening - to replace filter (filters).
