    LPL 7700 questions

    Howdy,

    I finally got myself an enlarger that I can hopefully use for quite a while, a LPL 7700 pro. I can't quite use it yet (no globes), but I am rather excited.

    I do have a few quick questions:

    1. Does anyone know where I can download a manual for it? I did quite a google search and found nothing in english
    2. The negative carrier. The machine came with a glassless carrier. I am assuming that this is a universal carrier. This includes inserts for 35mm negs. Now, not having 120 negs in front of me, I am curious if this carrier indeed is intended for 120 format film. The 35mm inserst are a bit raised, for what I am assuming, to ensure that the negs are firmly in place. I cannot see if this works in the same way for 120 negs (I have never shot 120, so I don't have any I can look at!)
    3. The globe is blown. It looks to be a 12v 100w globe. Can anyone confirm that this is correct?

    Cheers in advance

    If you look on the back there may be a plate with some writing like LAMP: 100W/12V (EFP)

    OK, cheers. Yep, the globes are in order. I just now need to get some replacements!

    Now, I am more concerned about the neg holder.

    For 120, I use the glass inserts, with AN (Anti-Newton-Ring) glass top. There are also glassless neg carriers available for each different format.http://www.khbphotografix.com/LPL/LPL7700series.htm

    Hi Hoffy,
    The universal carrier usually has blades fitted, so that you can adjust to the negs size you are printing. I have two of these - one without the blades to print my 6x9 negs.

    http://www.photobooksonline.com/books/userbk87.html

    Both have the manual available if you want to part with some $$.

    Pretty sure I have a copy at home - but I'm currently based in BKK; will see if my PA can locate and copy for you and get her to email to me.

    Great enlarger - you'll love it!!

    Thanks Nanette. I'll let you know, but at the moment I should be OK. Its when I start trying different things that I may need it.

    Cheers

    Hoffy, it is your lucky day - Somewhere on one of my systems, I have a complete user manual for the 7700. When I find it, I'll email it across.
