Anyone running a PAT filter?
« on: January 19, 2012, 12:47:53 AM »
... on a violet unit. Having trouble getting it to take the code for a 3 and 6 month filter change. (both light I and light II showing yellow, so both need changing, is my understanding). Because we're running it about 9 hours a day, changes are fairly rare, so rusty on it.
I think that if I await the end of beeps with door open, then key in the 6 month code in the 10'ish sec interval, it should give me an OK beep sequence, then all LEDs go green, (from yellow). Then I can shut/secure the door and that's it. Not happening.
I can get a Fuji contact call in the morn, but in the meantime I'm on countdown warning beeps.    :rolleyes:

  's OK.   :embarrassed:  Decided to re-read my notes before going home. Notes said: 'try 3121 OR 2131. Hadn't tried 2131.   :laugh:  >  :walker:

    :laugh:  Yeah, it was :rolleyes: when the 'missed' one worked.

BTW, if anyone uses these filters, test your current pricing against Purex in the UK.  Amazing service as well. Saved $580 0n a 1 year kit. Roughly a 40% saving.

Easy way to reset those things. Hold in all three of the input buttons when you turn it on. I had to replace that board on the one I had twice in it's lifetime. Mine never did keep good track of when filters needed to be changed even after the last board change, so I had a piece of paper taped to it with the change dates marked so I'd remember when to change them. Glad I no longer need it with the new Screen thermal platesetter we have...

I had a problem with none of the codes working. I finally called PAT Technology. They gave me instructions for a master reset. Something went whacky I guess. I can't remember what the instructions were. I had them with my notes that later became kindling.

Shall put that on my notes. All I gotta do then is read them properly.   :laugh:  Shame about the kindling Skryber... that would be handy. Anyhow, travelling OK right now.
