VFP-8 DIGITAL PRINT UNIT

Recommended Posts

VFP-8 is not a laser printer. You can not use other software but yes you can use Nortisu printer driver to get print from other application like Adobe Photoshop or other photo editing softwares. The problems of line is not a problem of VFP-8 head. it is because the callibration is not done properly.

You have to but Noritsu's QSS Print driver from Noritsu only. and yessssssss, did you check the uniformaty for VFP unit. if uniformaty is not correct, it may print straight greyish lines on the print.

Uniformity is process of correcting the colour and density of each pixel so the whole print is uniform i.e. without lines or streaks in the print.

There is a Noritsu program (vfp-8E.exe) that you need to run on your PC to carry out the uniformity process.

Hi John, any Photoshop version will be ok (used to use ver 5 or 6)

Enable service mode on the 2611.

Load 5" paper into magazine A, (not 4" as VFP is larger than 4" paper) remove magazine from Mag B if you have a double mag unit. Select the appropriate print channel and form channel preferably 5" for print & index.

1. Go to Menu, Extension, Maintence, Various Adjustments, VFP Unit Adjustment, Shift Yes

Put a formatted floppy disk into the machines disk drive, pick Write Uniformity correction. Remove disk when done. Do the same on another disk; keep this disk as a master copy just in case of any problems during the correction process.

Now go to 1 as above, pick Uniformity print, machine should now print a Y,M,C print. Make sure print is clean with no chemistry spots etc, if not re-print until clean.

Now scan print into Photoshop @600dpi, 24bit colour depth all automatic corrections turned off. Allow 5mm of white around the coloured/ black part of the image. Cyan should be on the left hand side of the screen when opened in Photoshop. Make sure print is straight, if not re-align and scan again.

Now in Photoshop go to image, adjustments, levels, click the black dropper then click on a black part of the print, then do the same with the white dropper clicking on a white part of the print. (You
