  1. We do the same but it doesn’t seem to retain the same sharpness as the smaller scans. Is there any other settings you have in place in setup and maintenance?
  2. Do you mean sharpness level high 1,2 and 3? Those don’t seem to work.
  3. The first image attached should be sharp and scanned at 4x6 print size. The second is soft and scanned at 10x15 print size. The larger image loses significant detail in the ring if you zoom in. i would like to understand why this happening.
  4. Ah maybe my phrasing is confusing. We use the auto carrier for 135 format. When we scan 135 at the 102c (4x6) print size, the images are sharp as they should be. When we scan the same 135 format film at a larger print size such as 6x9 or 10x15, the images soften drastically. The same goes for scanning 120 film square format on the manual carrier. Typically, the 5x5 print size for square frames produce sharp images. When we use 10x10 print size for the same format and film, the images soften. Sometimes detail that is in the 5x5 scans is lost in the 10x10 scans. I hope this explanation helps.
  5. These said colors are highly saturated on this scanner. Hoping to match the tones on the Sp2000 we have. Can anyone help me accomplish this?
  6. We are having issues with the sharpness on most higher resolution scanning. When scanning 135 film at 102c, sharpness is great. When we scan same film at 6x9 is loses sharpness and when scanning at 10x15, most detail is loss no matter if we adjust sharpness to High 1,2 or 3
  7. Update: A new carrier was installed but there is the same problem occurring.
  8. example of what happens. There are no torn sprocket holes. The film can be fed in and ejected out with no problem. In this video, the film seemed to be readjusted successfully through the first few frames but jams soon there after. Very strange.
  9. I tried again today. It was able to scan one 36 exposure color roll with no problem. Just one.
  10. Everything was checked and calibrated. The second clutch was also replaced but still resulting to the same issue. It’s not actually after just 6 frames. It’s just when the carrier retracts the film to readjust to scan the following frame. Sometimes it’s the second or third frame. Nothing to do with the films curl or splice. That issue is recognized and understood.
  11. Problems are resolved. After replacing circuit board, new lower switch for NC1 was replaced, but still received the same error messages. We found, then, found that one of the pumps was clogged. We flushed the hose and cleaned it with a pipe cleaner. We still had the error even after all that. So we drained all the chems of the replenisher tanks and they seemed to resolve everything. Thank you for helping.
  12. There’s been an issue with scanning on this carrier. I’ve observed that it jams when it stops at a certain frame to reposition itself for the following framing. The clutch closest to the back was replaced because it was over heating after so many tries. Anyone experienced this problem?
  13. Thank you for the help. We switched the boards out. we are still receiving the same message along with E868 message. If anyone has more information or could provide step by step help on how to resolve the trouble, it would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Has anyone received and fixed this message? If so, please share. We’ve check water pumps. We suspect that it’s a pump to mix chemistry or float sensors.
