    First I was using Kodak brand Kodafix (Liquid)and then Kodak brand fixer (powder)

    I ran a dest roll of film (color-C-41) through the fixer after it failed to clear this film and it made it quite clear. The fixer works. There is something I'm missing on the 2238.

    I may have to see if my camera store has ilford rapid fix in stock. I cannot imagine it's much different chemically than the Kodak fixer.

    I am wondering if the film that came in my can could be something other than 2238. I will have to take a magnifying glass to the film edges and see if I can find a number.

    OK, I have a possible lead:

    Rapid fixer vs Hypo fixer.

    Ilford Rapid fixer says 'The fixing agent in Ilford Rapid Fixer is ammonium thiosulphate, it contains no sodium thiosulphate (hypo).'

    Two different chemicals. Do any of the chemists out there know the difference, and why one would not work on this emulsion?

    Well, I bought a new bottle of Ilford Rapid fixer. Ran the film through it for about an hour. Nothing. The same.

    As a test, I took a new piece of this film, developed in HC110, fixed, and the same. Yellow nearly opaque film.

    I need to get a magnifying glass and see if I can get the edge numbers. So far all I can find is 'Kodak Safety Film". At least its safe.

    If I read the datasheets about this film (2238) correctly, the only edge-printing you will find is "Kodak Safety Film".
