  1. Hello! There has been a thudding/clicking sound coming from my developing rack in my QSF V30. After some investigating I learned that part A231675-01 was not rolling properly. It appears that the parts are swollen, and rubbing against the part beneath, causing for immobility, and therefore the sound and inability to process film rolls. I believe I need to replace the part and am looking for anyone selling it. But I also was curious if anyone knows why this is happening, or if there is another solution outside of replacing the part. I was thinking about removing the rubber sleeve with the bumps, or sanding down the bumps to allow for a smoother roll. I have attached pictures below! Please let me know what everyone thinks!

  2. I have a Noritsu QSS 3011 Digital printer with the scanner attachment. Negatives inserted into the scanner (from both the 35mm and medium format film carriers) read extremely blue and require a lot of yellow added to make the prints come out correctly. I thought the issue was with the negatives themselves, but flatbed scans of several different negatives show them to be properly processed with true color. I figure it has something to do with the scanner. Thoughts on a setting I can check or remedy for the situation?
