hristos Posted December 10, 2009 Report Share Posted December 10, 2009 Hi everybody out there. :-/ I am from Cyprus and I have doli DL-1810 Digital Minilab. I am in this business since 1977 and I have used Noritsu, Agfa, Fuji, Sitte, Darst, Omega, etc... I got a decision to by a Doli which was the worst decision in my life. From the first moment they install the machine the problems started. It's been almost two years now and the machine is out of order. So what happen during this time: Local technicians came to my shop over 90 times from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. I used to have a technician once in a year in my shop. From China 3 different times 4 different technicians came and spent over 30 days from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. They change almost all the parts twice on this machine and finally they said "Magnetism is the problem. Get the machine out of this shop and try. " :D We did that as well. No result. This machine is not working at all. They don't give service any more. From the beginning they refuse to change this faulty machine. Problems we got: 0- Strong black lines all over the pictures. 1- Lens table motor drive was broken within the first month. 2- Impossible to calibrate the paper.For each size you need over 20 times to read colors for calibration. Few minutes later calibration is lost and you have to start over. 3- Warning Display Failure!! 4- Tape Release Failure!! 5- Separator Blocked!! 6- The machine doesn’t start in the morning. Timer doesn't work 7- Back printer doesn’t work. 8- Exposure unit reflecting light and damage the pictures. They closed over 30 holes on the machine with black tape. 9- Lines on the pictures. Tabkord not steady. Every 3-4 weeks you need to calibrate. 10- Paper bending. When the pictures 11- Pictures stack often in the cutter unit. 12- The color of pictures is not steady. When you send one picture for many copies. The colors are not the same. (On any size). 13- We print 6 passport size pictures on 10x15 . The colors of pictures doesn’t match each other. 14- Frame not steady. Unsteady Cassette Offset 15- Pictures out of focus. 16- Cannot find source!! During printing stop printing. 18- Lafot stop responding(crashing) When you click to open files. many more... etc.... Finally, what happened is My business is damaged. I lost all my customers. I have machine to sell for spare parts. My advice is: Don't ever think to buy Doli Machine!!! Regards to everybody, Hristos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
