dks 1750 colour issues


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have been having colour issues with my 1750. I cannot get the machine to print yellows and greens. The yellows print mustard and bright greens(neon greens) print a dull green.I am using kodak chem. and paper. I have complained ot Kodak South Africa and non of the tecs seem to know what is causing the problem. The french say that a paper response needs to set for the kodak paper, so the kodak tec trid to change to a different response and it did not make any difference at all. I have even tried changing to Konica paper and RT chemical with no luck. There als0 seems to be no deffinition on all my prints and I am getting better colour out of the Kodak Dye sub printer than my million rand digital minilab. Kodak have now decided to replace the entire print head so we'll see how that pans out.

I was just wondering if anyone else has a similar problem.

dear ravi,

colour issues on DKS 3 machine may be caused of several problem starting from paper, chemistry, the actual cycle of the racks(speed of the racks), or maybe contamination.

Please provide me with the answer.

1.) What type of paper? Does it configured to your machine upon installation?

2.) What type of chemistry? It should support 20s to 34s cycle and the rack speed should be setup accordingly?

3.) What have you experience before the problem occur?

I have installed several DKS 3 machines and uses Fuji Chem and paper but haven't encountered any problem with color except of course some laziness problem of the operators.

please feel free to provide info so that I can help you. You may send PM or email me directly.

Best regards,

I am still having problems with my DKS 1750.

We are using Kodak Rapide Developer & fixer and we use Kodak Lorr Bleach

fix, with Kodak Edge & Royal Paper.

Kis have said that it is a paper response problem and have sent a Baberri

densitometer to calibrate the paper. The kodak service engineer contacted

Kis when the densitometer arrived to let them know that no software had

been suppiled with the densitometer which they then emiale to the tec.

After trying to get this densitometer to work with not luck we then

contacted France once more and were told that they have trid the

densitomter on thier machine and it does not work. This all took plce

between 12 Dec 2008 and 17 Dec 2008 and we are still awaiting a response

and this is now going on for almost 1 year.

All I can say is that the service from Kis really sucks.

Hope you can assist in any way.
