INTRODUCTION
This manual outlines the maintenance and servicing procedures, electrical diagram and parts list for the Frontier Manager Printer Controller (referred to as FMPC) for Fujilm Digital Minilab FRONTIER 350/370/355/375/570. This manual is a professional publication provided for qualied service personnel or other persons fully trained in equipment service procedures. All other personnel and operators are restricted from servicing the FMPC. When maintenance service is needed, be sure to contact qualied service personnel. Precautions Generally Applying to All Servicing Operations When servicing internal machine parts, make sure the power switch and the main power supply on the power distribution board are both set to the OFF position. If the main power is left ON, electricity will ow as far as the power switch and power supply section, and this can cause electric shocks and/or short-circuiting. If the power is left on, there is also the possibility for the machine to be accidentally activated causing damage to the machine and/or bodily injury.

The light source section and dryer will be hot to the touch. Wait 15 minutes after turning off the power before commencing with servicing procedures. IMPORTANT IMPORTANT describes improper handling procedures that may adversely affect performance or damage the equipment. NOTE: NOTE designates those items, provisions, and supplementary explanations for which it is important to maintain methodical concern and consideration relative to operational procedures. : describes additional or useful information.

PCI Bus : More than 3 (for IEEE1394 x 2 and 2nd Serial Adapter Card) Dimension : (Width x Height x Depth) : 181 x 447 x 426 mm
: IMPORTANT
To supply the power source to the FMP, make sure to use the power source cable, sharing the grounding with the printer as much as possible, so that the voltage deviation between the FMPC and printer does not occur. Install the FMPC so shat their cables are not tightened. For example, if the 1394 board is loosened by pulling the cable, the communication error may occur.

To change the timer On date and time, check the day of the week and enter the time in the Timer ON Date/Time Setting box. Set the preheat timer by follow the steps below, if necessary. IMPORTANT The ON time for a night-time preheating operation mist not overlap with the ON time of the weekly timer since night-time preheating takes priority and shuts down all power when it is set OFF. If, for instance, the calendar time is set to 5:00 AM and night-time preheating is turned ON at 3:30 AM, all the power will be shut down two hours later at 5:30 AM.

Select NO when no preheat timer is used. The second preheating timer is ignored if the rst and second time overlap.
<Example> 1st. preheat time: 2:00 AM 2nd. Preheat time: 3:00 AM With the above settings, nighttime preheating will occur from 2:00 AM to 4:00 AM (2 hours).

Click the [OK] button.

Operation returns to the menu screen.

NOTE:
Night-time preheating is usually conducted when the room temperature drops below 10C (50F) at night and the temperature is not controlled for 8 or more hours.

Control Strip Storage and Handling Precautions


REFRENCE: A control strip is used for checking the performance of the processing solutions. The package contents are composed of exposed but unprocessed paper strips, one reference strip (processed and used as the density reference), and the correction factor chart for the reference strip. Process a control strip once a day, measure the reection densities (R,G,B) using a densitometer and check for processing solution performance. IMPORTANT Place the control strips inside a plastic bag and store them in a freezer (-10C/14F or below). Storage at room temperatures leads to deterioration in performance. Moisture condensation occurs if the control strips are processed immediately after they have been taken out of freezer. This may give rise to uneven development. Do not open the folded end of the inner bag under any light, or the control strips may become fogged and rendered useless.

For preheating once only, set the same time for both the rst and second times. Select NO when the preheat timer is not used. The second preheating timer is ignored if the rst preheat time and second preheat time overlap.

To change the timer date and time, enter a checkmark, [] in the day of the week boxes and enter the time in the Timer ON Date/Time Setting box. Set the preheat timer by performing the following steps, if necessary. IMPORTANT The ON time for a night-time preheating operation must not overlap with the ON time of the weekly timer since night-time preheating takes priority and shuts down all power when it is set OFF. If, for instance, the calendar timer is set to 5:00AM and night-time preheating is turned ON at 3:30AM, all the power will be shut down two hours later at 5:30AM.
