    Hi . . The SCSI is standard, with the SCSI ID set at '6' for the scanner (at the rear of the scanner . .). . .
    Therefore you will be able to connect another device as long as the terminator is fitted at the furthest point. . . and not using SCSI ID '6'.
    (Maybe have the scanner at the furthest point . . .) . . .Also, watch out for cable lengths . . !!

    Hope this helps . . .

    Re: Screen Cezanne Users Unite

    Hello friends,

    I have recently been tasked (I tasked myself) to get a S5000 up and running. I am making my way around this thread so I apologize if something has been entirely covered before (the search function has been invaluable but not within the limits of my patience). I have a few quick questions namely:

    Is it still possible to source CG v2? I have found the wayback machine archive of screen software but they seem to all be updaters.

    I have seen reference to "release notes" that specify which hardware / software combos will work but I cannot seem to find them, can someone lead me in the right direction? I have a G5 I will use but not sure which card to go for.

    Are there any manuals hosted anywhere?

    Outside of routine maintenance I will be LED converting the thing and making a new white cal strip for it and possibly replacing the glass should it turn out to be too nicked up. I will document everything here:http://www.praxis-ti.org and hopefully contribute something back and start to collect and consolidate all this information instead of running around this thread. I will of course keep everyone updated and thank you all for everything you have contributed thus far. If you have any resources to share I would be more than grateful and will host them as long as I am alive free of charge.

    A bit about me: I work at a photographic lab maintaining machines (a few dip and dunks, roller transport processors, scanners and the like) and doing qc, In my spare time I just do more of my job in my workshop: fixing agx related photographic equipment. My dream is a world where labs work together to keep equipment running. Most labs have to fix things themselves which means they all have unique knowledge to offer. Instead of everyone trying to fix something someones already fixed why don't we document and share?

    Much love from London,

    Max

    Does anyone have a APD-29160N working or broken to sell, shipping to UK?

    edit: No need anymore, turns out the ASC / PC versions is identical to the APD / MAC version except for the BIOS stored on the cards EEPROM.

    While there are ways to flash the EEPROM electronically, the MAC rom needs a 1Mbit EEPROM which the 512K ASC card EEPROM lacks. Easy work if you know how to reflow otherwise I now have four extra APD / MAC cards I can part with or I can replace the chip on your ASC card for you. The ASC and APD bins are hosted on my website.

    An Adaptec 2930U will also be OK . . . ;-)
    I'll check my stock . . .

    Hi,
    I'm new owner of two Screen FT-S (5000&5500) coming from auction. The transport routine working well, it is a first step...
    I'll try them in this day, so i need to read the 105 pages of the thread :-)
    Thanks and happy new year :-)

    Congratulations Phil, I hope all goes well with the transport.

    A little update from me;

    Earlier today I drove the two hours north on the M25 and visited Tony (user @TC542) and it was smiles all around. I got treated to some great stories from his engineering days and we had a laugh about all the ways things usually go wrong in life.

    I am honored to receive his FT-S5500 in outstanding condition along with what I can only say is a very impressive amount of kit. Impressive may be an understatement. There was an astonishing amount of trays including a clear glass version among two more standard trays, a rubber weighted tray and two more for the oil mount mix n match trays including many many inserts. Some spare bulbs, spare cal strip, loads of software including CD for making separations (among other useful functions I have yet to discover). Many misc items; a few g4s and g3s, some profiling strips, kodachrome slides, service manuals, im definitely missing some stuff in this description but ill document it all soon.

    Now that I have the 5000 and 5500 I hope to just spend the time to deeply understand the two systems and hopefully be able to offer maintenance. I may actually use the thing to scan but for now its all reverse engineering. I fall more and more in love with the Cezannes the more I learn about them. Hopefully I can give this one a full life.

    Thank you to Tony for simply being a top notch guy, great fun being with you. And I hope to carry on with this legacy.

    That's great to hear!
