    *check whether the laser power is reducing if u think so
    *calibrate if u think tat there is a loss or gain of dots

    "Right now we are using agfa violet ctp" - saying that you told us nothing.
    Give us a little clue - model's name... just for beginning.

    It depends on maximum laser diode power of your machine.
    5 mW: no choise - AGFA LAP-V.

    Palladio CTP. I have a problem, get a spot along the plate, as if in that area the laser does not come with enough power. I checked the rule development process for processing failures Agfa LP86, all is well. What do you think is the cause of this failure?

    We have a Heidelberg ProSetter running violet . .. . the biggest maintenance tip I can give you is KEEP THE PROCESSOR CLEAN after that keeping the filters in the ProSetter clean

    The maintenance on our violet Agfa processor was messy nightmare. I am SO glad that about 2 years ago we switched to Kodak Thermal Direct plates, no processor to deal with, and the plates printer better than the Agfa LapV plates.

    There is a dust on the edges of facets, it's time to clean the spinner mirror - very common problem.
