    No image, no edge markings, just a strip of blank film the color of a wimpy carrot.

    This was the 5th roll through a batch of Unicolor C41 and the only failure. I use a Jobo CPE 2 + with lift. The chemistry has sat around a few weeks but has been sealed in black accordian bottles.

    Any ideas?

    sounds like you put the bleach(or blix) in 1st, rather than the developer, hence no edge markings

    if these were done 1 at a time, I'm 99% sure this is the case
