I have an Accuset 800 Plus which intermittently stops imaging resulting in clear bands across the width of the negs. When it started it only did it once in a few A3 negs, now it does it more times than not. I have jiggled all the connections to the board if it is a loose connection but without success. I thought it was initially a communication problem between the Accuset and the RIP but I have been able to get the gaps to appear on the internal test pages.
I don't want to spend any money on it as I am only going to use it for a couple more months as the printer I was doing film for picked up a Fuji-Xerox A2 platesetter including developer, RIP, dongle etc for $2000 at a liquidation auction. The economy sucks here in Australia unless your in mining.
So if anybody has heard of this it would be helpful.
