    Just a little correction
    I038205 is a +5V/+24V power supply.
    There are 2 green LED's on the power supply, one for each voltage.
    It's probably the +24V side that is failing once it comes under load.
    Yes the same power supply is also used on the QSF-V30, V50 & V100

    Dave S got a reaction from boumekhila in MS16 not showing right on Wide Monitor   
    The software was designed for a 4:3 screen not a widescreen monitor.
    Use a 4:3 monitor resolution like 1024x768 instead of a widescreen resolution.
    Then change the setting on the monitor itself to stop the screen stretching the image, obviously you will have a black strips down each side of the display due to the monitor being the wrong ratio, but it's the only way to do it with a widescreen monitor.

    It's best not to use E6 film with the C41 process, cross processing slide film is not good for C41 chemistry.
    1 E6 slide film for every 10 C41 films is an acceptable ratio.

    Oh dear.
    Remove the power 1 PCB and check it, the biggest problem is the solder joints on the SSR's cracking, then arcing,  re soldering the joints is all that is needed. If it's burnt then you can solder an insulated wire link to the appropriate place.
    Check you don't have some kind of leak of chemistry etc that has dripped onto the board, If the CD rack is not carefully removed it can drip into the loading box, and then find it's way into the circuit board area.
    For the standard setting menu to appear it needs to be in service mode. The easiest way to to turn on dip switch no.2 on the main control PCB, you can leave it on permanently if you like.

    You don't need to dissemble the motor, just measure the resistance on the connector plug. My concern is a faulty motor may damage any replacement PM driver.

    If you don't have a CRT (digital printer) it's probably best to use A software rather than D software.
    I have A031 which is for a non CRT/DCP machine if you want to use that instead. Link here https://files.fm/u/tbvj8unz
    With regard to the auto paper mask problem, check the connector plug at the back where the mask plugs in to it, it may be damaged, or some pins have worked loose etc. You can check the home sensors in input check.
    Also check that the mask plates move smoothly by hand when the mask is off the machine.

    It's very simple, the cutter blade should be in the down position, you then put the mouth of the film canister into the green clip, rotate the big knob to push the tape into the film canister until you see the centre spool of the film canister rotate, then when you remove the film canister from the green clip, the end of the film should be attached to the sticky tape.
    Then rewind the tape back until it's flush with the cutter blade.
    Repeat for the next film.


    When the tape has lost it's tackiness, use the cutter to cut the tape back to use a new fresh sticky portion of tape.

    ENV-M6 is just an evolution of the ENV-M5.
    It has a better illuminated area to see the frames, and uses a better motor system for feeding the negatives in.
    Both models do the same job!
    Forget the AB-3 as you cannot get the tongues for them anymore. The only alternatives that I know of were the Bero magic puller that used thick sticky tape to remove the film.

    Machines without a CRT or DCP had A0## software rather that D0## software. A0## machines had no image transfer PCB.
    I highly doubt any CRT would still be working by now. They only just worked when they were new!! Tube failures and HVPS failures very common. The later manufacture of CRT tubes were much better.
    I seem to remember there being a big speed increase with D008 onwards, basically it cut and fed 3 or 4 pieces of paper and put them on the exposure belt before the first print was made, this increased the speed over feeding down a single print each time.

    It's possible that it couldn't read the ANM.sys from the system 1B floppy disk.
    Try preparing another floppy disk with just ANM.sys on in, then go to the software upgrade screen and try it again.
    I have version D018 if you want it?
    I'm pretty sure there is a flash ROM in the ANM itself.

    Well judging by the scans with D-ICE on and off it's clear that D-ICE is working!
    There is a limit to the amount and size of dust it can correct, it seems you've reached the limit!
    You need to be using an anti static brush prior to scanning to remove as much dust as possible, then D-ICE will take care of the rest.

    I believe the issue with white spots on Kodak films was caused by the dryer temperature being too high on the film processor.
    Can you see spots stuck to the film?
    What film processor are you using?

    He also said " also some digital files have the same look on the screen and some do not"
    My feeling is it is corrupt LUT data.
    I've seen odd stuff like this before with old software and new profile data. He didn't answer the question about what version of profile data he is running with the F001 software, so I don't know if that is the cause or not.

    LUT= look up table, it's the data that is created when the initial setup is done.
    You need to enter the service mode to do a service backup.
    F, Menu, Press the F1 then F9 key on the main keyboard, enter the password (type in Noritsu password in Google to find the password for the day)
    Go to Menu, Extension, Maintenance, Reading and writing data, Service Data, Writing All DATA CPU to Media.
    Quit the Noritsu software. Rename the Noritsukoki folder located on C:\
    Install the Main system software again, then the Profile data + any option software (D-ice, calendar, multi frame etc)
    Enter the service mode, go to Setup, Data initialization, Initialize All Data.
    Now load only the following data in Maintenance, Reading and writing data, Service Data: Main, Printer, Processor, Auto Film Carrier, Scanner and Colorimeter.
    Carry out the initial Setup. (Extension, setup, initial setup)
    Hopefully that will clear out any possible bad data.

    This problem cannot be caused by the D-ICE PCB as the issue is happening on digital prints as well. The D-ICE PCB is only used for the scanner.
    Personally I would make a service backup, then on another hard drive do the Windows recovery, and software re-load.
    But only load the printer mechanical corrections from the service backup, then do an initial setup. This will eliminate the possibility of the problem being software related.
    You have to be careful with software and profile data versions, old software and newer profile data can cause strange issues like this.
    I personally would not be using such old software as A001, probably it would be profile data version 2.01 for such old software.
    For F001 software the profile data is version 4.05 - 4.13

    It is problem with chemicals. White area is not white, but grey. Laser didn't print white - it is just paper and chemicals. G laser on paper gives magenta and you have it. Seems that Red laser power is not enough ( it makes Cyan on print ) , but do not think so. Cyan can be missing, because paper was not processed correctly. Take piece of paper and in the dark room put it into control strip holder. End of this paper will be outside and will get light. Then run processor and put this holder into small hole on processor ( open small cover ) . Paper will be processed. End of paper should be absolutely black ( your is red - brown ) and other part of paper should be absolutely white ( your is grey ) .

    Hi Big Dave!
    Thanks for posting your findings.
    The drive voltage PCB is a common failure when you are getting big sudden colour shifts, however it tents to show up with the prints going red or brown. Turning the power off and back on again and the colour suddenly corrects are classic symptoms of this PCB being the cause of the problem.
    I guess in early failure the colour shift results maybe are not so dramatic.
    Merry Christmas, and a Happy new year to you too.
