    I have been using the HP Combi tanks for several years now and have not encountered this problem. Is the tank you are using new, or was it used?
    I will have to take a look at mine and see if I can come up with any suggestions.

    Everyone will tell you what they use and that it is a better system. In my experience they all can work well.

    I also use the HP combi tanks and never have any kind of problems like you mentioned. It sounds like the dreaded "operator error" problem.

    Maybe a couple of things to check. The grooves or guides that the film slips into should be curved. If they are straight then it need to be taken apart and reversed. I believe the straight ones are for glass plates.

    With mine once the film is inserted and the top film holder is placed on the film cannot move at all.

    If you need a set of directions I can send them to you.

    I've not processed sheet film for many years. I developed film pack
    by tray and sheet by tank and hanger. Nobody is doing film pack
    these days. I've seen no posts mentioning the the tank and
    hanger method. What gives, has everybody gone one-shot
    with their developer? Dan
