Second day on the job and run into my first major issue. Using Prisma to feed a canon 10,000 VP and it lost its ability to offset stacks. Yes, we turned it off and turned it on again.

You turned it off and on again, but did you check the plugs? Might have one not making a good connection.

I should notate that in the GUI it lost its ability. Not a mechanical failure. Someone here was able to fix it through the software.

Yeah... I never heard of Scitex Prisma until I started trying to research Canon PrismaSync.

That's what we used to impose our Scitex files before outputting to film....    back in the day

I remember Prisma for sure, Whisper sounds "faintly" familiar.
Did you output film on a Raystar?
They did have pretty cool names.

Conversely the shop I worked at when I moved up to Sac from the Bay had a Scitex RIP. We used Preps (when it was Creo) to impose our files before sending to a Lotem.

ours was a Lotem 400, we later upgraded to the 800 (for 40 inch films)

Ah, in the Brisq days we had a Dolev 800. The Raystar was kinda cool because it was not only a film output device, but was also a flat bed "linework" scanner.
