Defect temp sensor



By setting the set value to “0” degrees Celsius. The tank will be unheated. In most cases that will be possible on fix. That way production can be obtained  
Long heat up time By setting the timer you can make the processor start up ˝ hour before normal working time  
Panel has been damaged can not start up Disconnect the panel and start up the processor. On ex Primesetter it will be possible to set up dev time tem etc.  
In/out Sensor defect    
How can I test my conveyor

By entering the service menu Input/output part you can manually control the functions on the conveyor. You can for example:

*start a motor.
*Reveres the motor direction
*Activate the magnet buffer

*Set signals constant in test mode for the imagesetter.
*Display the conveyor switches and signal from the imagesetter in the input menu.


My Primesetter conveyor run’s in the wrong direction If the Ready signal from the Primesetter is taken away. The Celis control will make it possible for the Primesetter to pull back the film/plate. Even if it is under the rollers in the conveyor. It is most likely that the error is an error on the Primesetter.  
The display turns of after 30-60-120.. seconds Nothing is wrong. In the display PROPERTY "EYE" A SCREENSAVER FUNCTION CAN BE SETUP. Set it for 0 and the display will always be on.  
Conveyor Speed, I  can not calibrate the conveyor speed to be high enough On Primesetters it can be difficult to calibrate the speed. If the requested speed is not fast enough the inlet sensor have been activated too long!  
The panels displays strange characters in the top.
     P   4777   00  00 17  00
     M  4777   64  00 96  00

The numbers  is “debug information”. It is only used to read out software status information when programming and testing the software. It does not in any way influence the function of the processor when displayed.
 To activate it: Press the lower right bottom 5X in night mode!
 To disable it: Reboot the Ceils Control!

Question Answer Date
There is silver on the rollers in the dev rack. By mounting a filter 10u or a double filter 1u and 25u with an extra pump the silver content will build up slower

A typical reason to silver on the rollers in dev is that a little fix has entered the dev tank.

My film comes out wet from the dryer There can be more reasons. You should check that the dryer tempeture is set up correct and that both the upper and lower heating element is on.

Ensure that the silver content in the fixer does not exceed 5 mg/L. If it does the fixer replenish rate could be set too low. You may also seee bulletin No 16 Mending of bad graphic quality of developed film
