    The Cyan was a red herring, I was getting confused with setting up and using the colour analyser, what it was doing was acting as a ND combined with the Magenta. I am no longer using cyan for any of my filteration.

Taking the dial through the range a couple of times has helped and the guage will stay in one place rather than oscilate as before. Need to experiment a little more but it all seems to be going in the right direction.

    High C business is sorted too, that was an issue with the carbon interface (me).
    Your problem with the dodgy yellow dial has just reminded me of a problem I had with my ebuy PCA061. I had bought it and stored it for months before taking the plunge into RA4 and it didn't work. I thought I had been sold an ebuy pup. Anyway I plucked up the courage to unscrew the probe to see what went on inside. It's a set of wheels and the MYC filters which are cranked into place on pressing the appropriate buttons on the analyser.

    If I remember correctly I carefully used some WD40 aimed at the "clockwork" in the probe and lo and behold it started to work. So yes the wheels and cogs can stick. If yours is now working fine then probably best to leave alone but if it starts to "play-up" then it's worth opening the probe cover and carefully encouraging the wheels to move.

    I'll take that into account, cheers Pentax.

    I was doing some prints and one interesting point with the new Ilfocolor is yellow filteration is minimal i.e. M36 Y8!

    If I run out of yellow on a print I guess I will start topping up with Cyan.
