    Default Linotronic-530 Hell

    Hi
    I've recently gotten an old Linotype imagesetter. It is a Linotronic 530. Would anybody have a user manual for this or any other model ( 330, 500 etc.)

    Increase your exposure setting. If this does not help, you need a a new laser and or laser power supply.

    Default Banding on a Linotronic 530

    There is "banding" on the film and I've cleaned the mirror before and it's fixed the problem. I no longer work where I used this machine but keep in touch with my old boss. He called me the other to ask me how I cleaned the mirror and I can't for the life of me remember. Any sugguestions?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Default Cleaning

    I am too interested in cleaning the mirror and/or laser in a 560. Our unit was recently moved, and since then we have been getting small spots in the output. Thanks!
