Maxi (9/10)



  1. Ideally printer should give black approximately the same as day light. Usually rates are lower, but not 1.42 for cyan as you have on your minilab. Black level depends on paper, chemicals and Red laser on printer. Have to check all, if black level is lower, than should be. Even on very old minilabs ( for example QSS30 ) cyan is higher, so can't be, that on new minilab level is very low. When black level is lower than should be for exact paper you will not have any errors. 1.42 is more than enough to calibrate middle range and light area and that is most important. You will have error, if Dmax will be lower, than 0.9 , or higher than 3.8. Start checking from chemicals. If chemicals and paper are good then problem is with printer. Black level can be increased, if to use professional papers. With some of them can be reached higher density ( 2.5 - 3 ) . Loaded on EZ controller .icm profile can't increase black level and just can to make it lower. Profile number is just number on the list. Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type CA Paper has number 142 there. Check chemicals, make minilab backup and run paper Specification Registration/Setup again. Before doing check setup switch status. When the setup switch is on, the high density section is calculated and Dmax is set to the most appropriate value. When the setup switch is off, setup is performed within the range of the colorimeter specification (Dmax: 2.2 D or less). QSS39 on software has menu "Dmax adjustment" . Try adjust there. Pay attention that If you perform Dmax adjustment it is necessary to do Paper Specification Registration/Setup again. If can't get something better you can return loading printer data backup ( which you did before tests ) . Do not make magazine registration. Can do it only when master paper settings will be completed and you get what you need. All adjustments can find on QSS39 service manual, training manual and instillation manual. Read these manuals, or pdf documents. Ask help from Noritsu. They sold minilab and should explain, why your new printer has Dmax, than printers made more than 20 years ago.
  2. Probably you used different coorimeter and on ZBE Chromira you got not correct results. Black color on paper have when it is fogged and processed. Black color mainly depends on paper and chemicals. Regarding Fuji Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type CA Paper back levels on ZBE Chromira for glossy should be 2.00 /2.00 / 1.95 ( 1.95 /1.95/ 1.90 for matte ) : https://asset.fujifilm.com/www/us/files/2020-02/9251484a0eda6ebb4b47cc6fec73173a/Fujicolor_Crystal_Archive_Type-CA-Data-Specs.pdf Check and calibrate working tank temperatures and calibrate replenishment rates. When CD temperature is too low minilab has not correct colors. Replenishment rates and temperatures should match specifications to chemicals, which you use. Profile 142 is correct for Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type CA Paper. Which profile data version do you have? Your printed D-Max is too low ( especially for Cyan ) . That means your Red laser maximal power is too low. Yellow color is too low also, but can be if Cyan will be good Yellow will be better. Try to make all tests : Paper Specification Registration Black Balance Adjustment NCE Mode Brightness of the Edge Highlight Balance Adjustment Highlight Balance Adjustment (Manual) Machine-to-machine variation correction Exposure Adjustment If after all that you have not good results then your Red laser is too weak to get enough Cyan on the paper. Can be bad laser head, or not correct optical alignment. QSS3901G should have warranty and if laser is bad Noritsu should change it free of charge.
  3. White - not exposed and processed paper. It depends only on paper and chemicals. In the dark area into control strip holder insert piece of paper. Then insert it into processor ( through control strip cover ) and process it. End of paper ( which was outside ) will be black and part of paper ( which was inside ) will be white. Then you can see the best black and white, which you can have with your paper and chemicals. Upgrading software and profile you can just improve print on light area and make colors better. The latest QSS3202 system software is version 10.0 and profile - 7.20 . If your paper is white, if just processed ( inserted into processor ) , but have not white, when paper are supplied from printer then you have laser fogging. Need to do laser mechanical alignment, change AOM crystal, or even replace laser head ( if burned and on head output laser beam is very wide ) .
  4. Do not understand question. Probably asking something how to dance tango around Fuji 340. Here is miniab forum and it is not related to dance. If want to get an answer - write question in English. Then we can understand and answer.
  5. What is the problem on your scanner? I thought you asked about vertical lines. In most cases them caused unstable film advance in film carrier. Did you make focus using charts ( original, metal charts from Noritsu ) . You did focus on all zoom rates ( to change press F, change a zoom ) ?
  6. S4 is absolutely different, if compare with S2. It looks similar, but the most parts are different. S4 can be easy converted into stand alone scanner. Just need replace one board. S2, or S3 can work stand alone, but only with workstation ( CS1 - from QSS32, QSS34 ) . When scanner connected to minilabs on most models S2, S3 and S4 are exchangeable. Customers will not see difference, if connected one, or other scanner model.
  7. Is it 135AFC-II, or 135/240AFC-II? If second - try to scan APS film and look there. It is banding. Film advance is unstable. It is some mechanical fault - bad rollers, broken gear, bearing, belt, or something else. Need to repair film carrier.
  8. Standard MS01 3.1 doesn't need any passwords. Use it, or upgraded MS01 versions. With newer MS01 LP7500 system software should be version 4.0 ( the latest ) . Of course the best would be to use Noritsu software, where system software has version 19.0. It has new upgrades and features.
  9. 1029 means when measuring the test print, difference of the density between each step is not detected, or abnormal density is detected. Check that the test print is correctly made. What caused error depends on print you tried to measure. If print looks good ( colors, density ) then faulty colorimeter. If print looks bad - problem with printer, or chemicals. More can say, when know what you have on your prints.
  10. LP7500 is not new. It is old printer made by Noritsu about 15 years ago. Real Fuji LP7500 name is Noritsu QSS3702 F. My advice is through out old computer with Fuji software. Then take new modern computer with Windows 10 PRO 64 bit. There install modern software - EZ controller version 7.20 , system software version 19, profiles 4.8, capacity booster ( the same which have with Fuji ) and optional modules. Then you can have all new features, which has not old software, which is for Fuji branded minilabs. Which MS01 version do you have? Standard MS01 ( versions 2.1, 2.5.5, 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.2 and 10.0 ) don't need any passwords and have not time limits. But for LP7500 Fuji has very old system software ( version 4 ) and old profiles ( missing new papers ) . Software has not new features, which added on new version. Write private message and I can explain how instead old Fuji software have new software from Noritsu.
  11. Yes arche hernandez sanchez and virgilio 7u7 one and the same person. Time after time they asking each other and answering. It would be the same as talk with a mirror. I think this time we have to answer this question. Yes, accuSmart can be used on QSS3202 PRO connected to computer where installed EZ LAB. AccuSmart is image processing technology which works behind the scenes of Noritsu EZLab to ensure high quality results from input to output. When AccuSmart is activated within Noristu basic color correction is done upon import to the application. Photo labs can assign AccuSmart to correct various types of orders including PhotoCenter Kiosk, PhotoCenter Home, Darkroom, CD and EZ Assistant orders. AccuSmart can also be assigned to auto-correct image files from digital cameras or other import files. Photo Labs can also opt to apply AccuSmart to all photos derived from a digital camera or other media. AccuSmart is not one software, but few of them. On accuSmart included Digital ICE, Digital masking, lens aberration, red eye correction, tone curve correction, soft filter software and few other. I think you have them already installed, so no reason to use accusmart.
  12. GPR23 is not related with sorter. Which error number do you see?
  13. Noritsu for E6 process made film processors QSF-R410 ( QSF-R410L-3 , QSF-R410L-3C , QSF-R410L-3U ) and QSF-R420 ( QSF-R420L , QSF-R420L2 , QSF-R420LC , QSF-R420LD , QSF-R420LU ) . Also can be used few other Noritsu film processors with added pull - push option. In UK for B/W sold Ilford FP40 film processors. Also saw b/w film processors made by Agfa ( Copal ) .
  14. Probably here is MS01 demo version which has time limit. Use full MS01 version and it will not need any passwords. There are MS01 version 3.1 ( for XP ) , version 4.2 ( for W7 32 bit ) and version 10.0 ( for W10 64 bit ) . They all do not need passwords.
  15. 07910-00007 the waste paper ejection end sensor did not detect LIGHT when the waste paper ejection motor was moved to the home position from the flushing position. Can check sensor, when unit is in this position, or look for some mechanical problem. All can be tested from input - output check. Look if arm is at correct position. Other possibility temporary invalidate waste paper ejection unit error on the function and option registration display.
