I own a GretagMacbeth SpectroScan T x/y table that is used to read and measure test charts used in the creation of ICC printer profiles. I bought this unit used about eight years ago, and it has served me well throughout this time. However, I recently tried to read a target with the SpectroScan to create a new printer profile, and the device failed and returned an error. In this article, I’ll show you how I problem-solved and ultimately fixed it.
It seems that many contributions as of late have been with regards to equipment. So I thought I’d share a mini adventure. But ironically, this outing was all because of the equipment. Let me start with a little back story.
Today I’m going to review my experience creating new foam inserts for two Halliburton Zero cases that I use for a Fuji GX-617 camera. I used a company called My Case Builder, and the entire process took about two months, which is crazy when you think about it. However, when you break down all steps involved, it’s somewhat justifiable, or at least understandable. My hope is to inform others who are thinking about doing something similar, and perhaps help you in the process.
