strong cyan cast

Recommended Posts

That sounds like typical symptoms of CD contamination. Are the whites of the print also cyan?

With contamination you have no choice but to dump the tank and start again with a fresh CD tank mix.

Make sure you thoroughly wash out the CD tank, I would drain and fill it with water 3 times, run the machine for a while in-between changing the water to circulate through the pipework.

Check the CD rep tank as well to make sure bleach/fix has not been put in there by mistake.

Yep, what Dave said, and don't forget to dump the developer filter! It does not take much to contaminate the dev and a little extra downtime now will save even more downtime in the future.

You will never get rid of contamination with a partial dump.

And don't forget your developer starter.
