Chapter 2: Operational Safety & Use Conditions


Safety
Basic Operating Precautions
When accessing the machine interior for inspection or servicing, shut down the system by doing the postoperational checks, place the built-in circuit breaker in the OFF (K) position, and turn OFF the main power
(external power distribution switch).
Inspecting or servicing the inside of the machine with the main power circuit breaker left ON may expose
personnel to hazardous conditions and damage the machine.
If the machine emits smoke, generates an abnormal sound or its external surface becomes unduly hot,
immediately stop using it, place the built-in circuit breaker in the OFF (K) position, unplug the power
cable, turn OFF the main power circuit breaker, and contact your local dealer.
[1] Do not modify the machine without permission from the manufacturer because
safety assurance features and other essential functions may be impaired. If the
machine needs to be modified, contact your local dealer.
[2] Never remove covers or other parts that are screwed down to avoid the risk of
electric shock or injury to personnel. If any parts need to be unscrewed, contact
your local dealer.
Use only Fujifilm-recommended replacement parts.
IMPORTANT: If parts other than those recommended by Fujifilm are used, the
warranty will be voided.
[3] Do not insert your hands or fingers into the moving parts of the processor
while the machine is in operation to avoid the risk of injury.
[4] Do not insert your hands or fingers under the scanner section while the
machine is in operation to avoid the risk of injury by being caught between the
scanner section and carrier.
[1] Do not operate the machine with cover open/close sensors forced ON while
the covers are open. These sensors serve as safety switches. If they are forced
ON, the system mistakenly assumes that the open covers are closed making
the machine operative, and this may expose personnel to hazardous conditions
and damage the machine.
Never position objects in close proximity to light sources or processing or dryer
section cover vents. Doing so will impair machine ventilation thereby causing
temperature control problems.
[2] Do not stare at the light emitted from the light source for prolonged periods of
2006-2008 FUJIFILM Corporation All rights reserved.
5

time because this may damage your eyesight.


[3] If anything drops into the machine, remove it after turning OFF the power, or
consult your technical representative. If the machine is operated without removing
this foreign matter, mechanical failure or abnormal prints may result.
[4] Do not use any liquid near the keyboard. If a liquid is spilled on the keyboard,
the keyboard may become inoperative due to a short circuit.
[5] Do not disconnect the cable connectors located on the rear side of the ICIII
unless instructed by your technical representative. If these connectors are
disconnected, special operations may be required for checking the system.

Cautions Regarding Electric Shock


[1] Utmost care should be taken as the scanner and the processor are connected
to a 100/200/210/220/230/240V AC power source. Avoid the possibility of electric
shock by noting the following:
Never operate the machine if it is wet.
Never operate the machine if the surrounding floor is wet.
Ensure the electrical earth connection is permanently made.
Ensure that all cables are undamaged and correctly connected.
[2] Do not place items such as a cup, plastic bottle, vase, vessel of water, etc. on
the scanner or processor. If the contents (coffee, tea, water, etc.) are spilled,
electric shock to personnel, short circuit in the machine or other accidents may
occur.
[3] Connect the power cable of the scanner to the outlet having the capacity of 10
amperes or higher, and position the cable so that it does not get in the way of the
operator. If the operator steps on the power cable while working, electric shock to
personnel or abnormal operation may result.
[4] Do not pull the cables forcibly. If the cables are handled roughly, electric
shock to personnel or abnormal operation may result.
[5] When connecting the power cable to an outlet, take care not to overload the
outlet or wiring accessories such as power strips. Overloading may result in fire
due to heat generation.
[6] Be sure to connect the power cable to the outlet completely. Incomplete
connection may cause fire or electric shock to personnel.
[7] When disconnecting the power cable, be sure to hold the plug. Pulling the
power cable may cause electric shock to personnel or fire due to a short circuit.
[8] Do not handle the power cable with wet hands to avoid the risk of electric
shock.
[9] During a thunderstorm, do not touch the machine, power cable, or plug to
avoid the risk of electric shock.

Room Conditions
Temperature: 15 to 30C (59 to 86F)
Ambient room temperatures above 30C (86F) or below 15C (59F) will destabilize processing and
replenisher solution temperatures to the detriment of processing performance. Pay special attention to
room temperatures in wintertime and maintain solution temperatures within designated ranges.

Relative Humidity: 30% to 70%


Relative humidity above 70% will result in inadequate paper transport or improper paper drying,
thus producing abnormal prints. Maintain the ambient room relative humidity within the range of
30% to 70% RH at all times.
Do not expose the processor to the wind blowing from the air conditioner or a room fan. Otherwise
the ambient temperature and humidity cannot be measured correctly and insufficient paper drying
may result.

Ventilation
Provide an outside air vent close to the processor section and maintain adequate ventilation.

Illumination: 500 lux or lower


Maintain room illumination levels so that no more than 500 lux falls on the scanner and printer upper
surfaces. Should the equipment main body or paper magazine be exposed to direct outside light or strong
reflected light, use curtains or blinds to shield the equipment from such extraneous light.

REFERENCE
Two 40W fluorescent lamps provide 500 lux of illumination at a distance of 1 meter (3.3 ft.). Excessively
high indoor illumination levels will adversely affect the quality of finished prints.

Monitor and ICIII Handling Precautions


If anything unusual occurs during operation, such as smoke, strange noise, peculiar odor, etc., disconnect
the power plug immediately and contact your dealer. If you continue using the equipment in that situation,
fire, electric shock or a breakdown may result. For details, refer to the operating instructions for the
monitor.
In case you spill liquid or drop something into the housing, disconnect the power
plug immediately and contact your local dealer.
Do not obstruct air vents.
Do not place the monitor close to magnetic fields.

ICIII
To prevent damage to the system, abide by the following points.

Do not install any application software other than those described in


this manual without Fujifilms consent.
Do not modify the data structure or data in the hard disk.
Do not open the ICIII or other equipment without the consent of
Fujifilms service representative.
Do not add to or modify expansion cards or RAM cards.

Do not reboot using the [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] keys. To shut down the system,
perform the post-operational check.

Media Handling
IMPORTANT
Before removing the media from the media reader or drive, make sure that the access LED has
completely gone out. If it is removed while the LED is still lit, the data in the media may be corrupted.
IMPORTANT
If the system is turned off or shut down while reading the data, corruption of data may occur. Make sure
not to turn off ICIII or media drives. To prevent unexpected data loss, it is strongly recommended to use a
UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).

IMPORTANT
For SD/Memory Stick/Compact Flash:
Keep the following points in mind when handling or storing the media.
Make sure dust or debris does not collect on the terminal.

Do not damage or drop the media.


Do not place the media near a heat source.
Do not leave the media in a high-temperature, high-humidity place for a long time.
For CD:
Keep the following points in mind when handling or storing the CD.
Make sure dust or debris does not collect on the reading surface of the CD.
To remove any dust or debris adhering to the reading surface, use a soft cloth to wipe it off,
starting from the center and moving to the outside.
When wiping off dust or debris, never use any solvent such as benzine, thinner, anti-static
cleaner.
For FD or/and MO:
Never open the shutter to touch the disk. If the shutter is open, close it before inserting it into the
drive.
Do not place the media near a heat source.
Do not leave the media in a high-temperature, high-humidity place for a long time.

>>> Creating a Multi-Roll Order from Film


A multi-roll order is an order that contains more than one roll of film. If the customer has multiple rolls of
film and would like to order a CD, the operator can put the images from multiple rolls onto the same CD.
The number of rolls that can be placed on a single CD is dependent on the image sizes and the capacity
of the CD. Each roll in a multi-roll order now has a unique Film ID included in the backprint information.
Previously the Envelope ID was used for the entire order. The first roll of prints, index prints, and
receipts continue to display the Envelope ID. For example, if the Envelope ID is A555001 and the
following rolls are A555002, A555003, A555004, etc., the backprint on the prints correspond to the
number entered. The backprint on the first roll is A555001, the second A555002, etc. The backprint on
the indexes and receipts is 555001. If the operator tries to scan a new roll while the previous roll is
processing, a message displays instructing the operator to wait for that roll to finish processing before
proceeding.
Verify that the film guide on the carrier matches the size of the film ready to scan.

From the Order Entry screen, select either Auto, Semi, or


Manual from the Scan mode drop-down menu.

Enter the Order ID in the Envelope ID field.


If Auto Order ID generation is enabled, the operator can use the
Order ID automatically entered in the Envelope ID field, delete it
and enter another one, or scan the Order ID with the barcode
scanner to populate the field with that code from the envelope.

>>> Creating a CD, an Index Print, or a Promo Print from Film in Auto or Semi
Mode
There are two ways to create an order in Auto or Semi mode, based on when the operator inserts the
film.
Important: Verify that the film guide on the carrier matches the size of the film that is ready to scan.
Important: Certain

features, such as P. Set, P. Size, and H/P/HV settings, are not available in Auto and

drop-down menu in the Scan mode group.

Insert the film into the scanner.


The film feeds into the scanner and the pre-scan begins.

Envelope ID field.
If Auto Order ID generation is enabled, the operator can use the Order
ID automatically entered in the Envelope ID field, delete it and enter
another one, or scan the Order ID with the barcode scanner to
populate the field with that code from the envelope.

If an adjustment in the default Due by time is desired, use the spin


control to select a time.
Select Hot Job to send the job to the top of the queue, or select Next
Day to make the Due By time the following day.

>>> Creating Prints from Film in Manual Mode


Manual mode is intended to support reprints from cut film or any other scanning that requires greater
interaction with the View Images screen. Using this method, the operator has access to the various
menus
as well as keypad functions on that screen. The operator can access the Re-order screen, if necessary.
Unlike Auto or Semi modes, the P.Set and P.Size options are available in Manual mode.
When ordering multiple sizes in Manual mode, the prints come out on the tray in the order of the 1st size,
2nd size, 3rd size, etc., regardless of the order of the images on the negative.
When ordering multiple sets of prints in Manual mode (P.Set) the images come out on the tray in the
order of the 1st print, 1st print, 2nd print, 2nd print etc., based on the order of the images on the negative.

tendency to flatten images.
Backlight is designed to brighten the part of the image that is in the foreground.
Strobe is designed to add more contrast and brightness to the background part of the
image.
Standard is part of the Auto Correction tool.
None applies no adjustments to the selected image.

Red Eye Correction


Toggling the Red Eye Correction button to the On position automatically corrects red
eye on selected images.

2006-2008 FUJIFILM Corporation All rights reserved.


53

Noise Reduction
Toggling the Noise Reduction button to the On position will remove extra, granular
noise from an image.

55

>>> To set the new channel name:


In the Channel Name field, type a name for the new
channel.
In this example, it was named Hyper-sharpness off.
It is useful if the name gives some type of indication of
what the channel will do to the selected image(s)
when the custom channel is used.

>>> Sharpness and Color Balance tab:


In this tab there are three areas of control.
The Channel Color Balance group box features
enable the operator to change an image using
customizable CMY values.
The Sharpness Process area allows the operator to
change the image based on predefined sharpness
levels. If the radio button is set to USM (Unsharp
Mask), the Sharpness level options below this field
are enabled and allow the operator to change the
sharpness of the image based on predefined values. If
the Sharpness Process is set to OFF, no sharpness is
applied to the selected image(s) when this custom
channel is selected.
The Sharpness Level area is only available if USM is selected in the Sharpness Process field. Once
enabled, the operator can choose which of the seven different settings needed to adjust the sharpness of
the image(s). The normal and high settings will apply varying degrees of sharpness to the image when
the channel is applied. The low setting will de-focus (i.e., provide soft focus to) the image when applied.

2006-2008 FUJIFILM Corporation All rights reserved.


56

>>> Gamma Adjust, Basic Color Mode, and Bright Mode tab:
There are three different areas on this tab:
Graduation Adjust, Basic Color Mode, and Bright
Mode.

Graduation Adjust: Graduation is a consistent and gradual change from the highlight of an image to the
shadow. The values are preset to accomplish smooth changes with varying contrasts.
Basic Color Mode: This control adjusts the contrast of flesh tones.
Standard is a special mathematical formula for a standard scene.
Portrait mode tends to make flesh tones smoother by lowering the contrast of the skin tones. Other
objects in the scene can also be affected and the result can be a slightly lower contrast print.
Bright Mode: This control adjusts the saturation without affecting the flesh tones in the image.
By selecting +4, the saturation of all colors except flesh tones are increased. In contrast, if the operator
selects -2, all the colors except flesh tones are de-saturated.
>>> Saturation and Auto Correction tab:
This tab has several different areas that can be used
to adjust the Saturation of the image(s) selected.
These areas are Auto Correction, Monotone Setup,
Scene Curve, and Saturation Setting.

Auto Correction: With this setting the operator can individually adjust the Density and/or the Color
Correction setting when Auto Correction is selected.
When Auto Correction in the Adjust tool is set to ON, this adjustment to the Density and Color Correction
is applied. The button must be set to ON for these changes to go into effect.
Monotone Setup: Clicking this button allows the operator to convert the image to BW (Black and White),
Sepia 1 (shades of brown), Sepia 2 (a mixture of black and white and sepia), User BW (user defined
settings for black and white), User Sepia 1 (user defined settings for Sepia 1), or User Sepia 2 (user

defined settings for Sepia 2).


The user-defined BW and Sepia options can be configured in the Maintenance program.
In Support mode (or any mode that allows access to the Start Menu), click Start > Maintenance.
Select 04 ImageSettings > 0401 ImageAdjustOptions.
Change the values in this dialog to customize the User BW, User Sepia 1, and User Sepia 2 settings.
Scene Curve: This button adjusts the contrast based on the selected option. The options for this button
are designed to represent the lighting when the picture was taken.
The Cloudy Sky is designed to add contrast to the image since a cloudy sky has the tendency to flatten
images.
Backlight is designed to brighten the part of the image that is in the foreground.
Strobe is designed to add more contrast and brightness to the background part of the image.
Standard is part of Auto Correction.
None does not apply any adjustments to the image.
Saturation Setting: This setting adjusts the saturation of the image for all the colors in the image.
This setting can go from -9 (removes all color and makes the image black and white) to 9 (saturates all
the colors of the image).

Sharpness feature (see page 60).

Saturation
The Saturation button controls how vivid colors are in the image.

This setting ranges from -9 (removes all color and makes the image black and
white) to 9 (saturates all the colors of the image) and can be set by using the
drop-down menu on the Saturation button.

Tone Adjust
Selecting this feature will adjust the contrast and shadows of the image based on
preconfigured settings.

Using the different settings within this feature will adjust the contrast and
shadows to varying degrees, based on the selected setting. For example, if
Hard 2 is selected, the contrast and shadows will be harder than if Soft 1 is
selected.

Bright Mode
This button adjusts the saturation without changing the flesh tones of the image.

By selecting +4, the saturation of all colors except the flesh tones is increased.
In contrast, if the operator selects -2, all the colors except the flesh tones are
de-saturated.

Basic Color Mode


This button adjusts the contrast of flesh tones.
Standard is a special mathematical formula for a standard scene.

Portrait mode tends to make flesh tones smoother by lowering the contrast of
the skin tones. Other objects in the scene can also be affected and the result
can be a slightly lower contrast print.
