  1. I thought about that. Unfortunately we use Kodak kiosks, and I can find where the order SHOULD be, but the order doesn't seem to be there. If I do find where the order is stored, will using CT as the input automatically detect the print number for each file, or will it default to one of each?
  2. Just started at a new lab after a move, I'm really used to fuji equipment and have only used a 3501 for a few weeks.......now, I'm working on a 3011.....it seemed to me in net order mode on the 3501, you were able to correct digital files in a screen much like printing from film. It also seemed to me that this screen automatically came up when you hit start in net order mode. My new boss is 100% convinced this is not possible on the 3011, and I can't find a manual other than the pdf within the machine which doesn't make any mention. Help?
  3. there could be MANY reasons why this is happening. The simplest first, are the pictures taken indoors without flash(assuming this only happens with some photos)? To know which chemical could possibly be off in your film processor, you need to be running control strips DAILY at a minimum. It will sound harsh, but if you're not running and plotting control strips, you have no buisness taking in customer work.
  4. maybe this will help you http://pma09.bdmetrics.com/PDT-363261/PTS-Consulting-Service-Group-Inc-/Fuji-Frontier-Silver-Edition.aspx looks like you should get in touch with PTS
  5. p1 in the frontier 340 should be 45 C assuming you're using CP-49E chemistry.
  6. step one, take the temperature of the tank......
  7. This will sound harsh, but if you're not running control strips daily, you have no business touching customer work.
  8. chemistry can change fast, but not that fast...............have you been in contact with fujifilm?
  9. it depends what color the paper is........now all the lab's i've ever worked at used fuji paper, if its blue, its blix in the dev, if its yellow its stale paper, under replenished bleach, or bad stab......only a control strip will tell you.......
  10. stale paper too......but run a controll strip and plot it....that should tell you what's wrong.
  11. very interesting. Just out of curiosity for you guys, how long would you say it takes approximately to make base 16 scans for a roll?
  12. If it were something that needed a tech, yeah, but changing the machine settings from how it was set up by the tech, or adding ram for my little pet project is not going to impress them or get them to come to the store.
  13. Control strips are those wonderful pre exposed pieces of film or paper depending on process that you get from fujifilm to see if everything is within parameter. You SHOULD be running them at the very least every day when you open.
  14. yeah......maybe a good idea, but this new job, for the first time instead of an independent, I'm working for somewhere that is a pharmacy chain....can't exactly mod the machine of a huge corporation without them noticing. Getting them to carry matte paper instead of just glossy was enough of a struggle. And it didn't freeze on the first scan. About 2/3 of the roll fed back out before it froze and gave the auto carrier msg. I'll try again and take down an error msg this time.
  15. we have the low cost scanner which indeed only does 35mm and APS. When I set for base 16, all is well and good, but setting it for - and the print size to 8x12 yields freezes, not higher than base 16 scans.
  16. well, it seems that scanning at the 8x12 output size freezes the 3501, and gives an "auto film carrier communication error". Lesson learned, oh well!
  17. thank you for the spreadsheet. A further question then, is it possible to make the noritsu output tiffs instead of jpgs?
  18. I'll have to try that. I think I have the fuji system so far into my head I figured it would work by scanning at 300dpi per output size--4x6=1200x1800,8x12=2400x3600 pixels.
  19. so, what you're saying is, despite the scanner being quoted as being able to produce a 4000x6000 pixel file, because of the machine i'll essentially be limited to a 2400x3600 pixel file?
  20. do an upkeep print before you print a bunch of black and white.....sometimes you need to do it even on the real fuji made frontiers, In my case, 6" glossy was the master, so the morning upkeep took care of it, 6"matte, 4" and 8" we always calibrated before printing b/w.
  21. I've been working in labs for quite a while now, but suddenly After years and years of using fuji equipment, I'm thrown into a store with a qss3501F equipped with the S1-II scanner. With the frontiers I worked on, setting the print size to 8x12 on some models, or 10x15 on 10" models would allow the highest possible resolution scans. With the noritsu, I can choose between the different bases, and apparently there is a - trick, so I guess I could scan at about 2400x3600 pixels. The confusion is, http://www.noritsu.co.jp/english/news/20050930.html there noritsu says I can scan at Maximum resolution4011 x 6048 pixels from 35mm full frame. How do I go about setting up for this?
  22. go into the SE2 menu and say connect to imaging controller. Or the pre-op check. If neither works, turn both machines off, check all the network connections, boot the PIC, when the pic is up, boot the frontier.
