First, shut down the printer using the Power Off button.
Then, lift off the SpectroProofer from the front of the printer. You need to unplug the power cable on the left side, and the USB cable under the flap on the right side, first.
- Unplugging the power cable.
- Unplugging the USB cable.
- Lifting off the mounter. Lay this flat on its back.
Under the black flap is the ILS unit, this is now exposed after lifting off the mounter. If there is an ILS20 installed, there will be two cables connected. The ILS30 also has two cables connected, plus a third adapter that sits on top.
Unplug both cables and remove the ILS from the mounter by lifting it up.
This image shows the mounter with the ILS unit removed.
This image shows how the adapter sits on top of the ILS30.
For ILS30 upgrade only: Add the adapter cable to the ILS30 (it comes with it and fits snugly on top of the unit as above).
Insert the ILS30 into the slot where you removed the old unit. Ensure it firmly clicks down.
Place both cables into the new ILS30 unit.
Now you need to replace the white tile too.
Unhook the white tile holder from the printer itself.
Untwist the back and replace the white tile with the new one. It's important white tiles are never mixed up - they are unique to the ILS!
Place the white tile holder and SpectroProofer back onto the printer.
Once on the printer, insert the power cable back onto the left side, and the USB cable back under the black flap on the right side.
Turn the printer back on.
The printer can be used as normal.
If there are any errors or problems, check seating of all pieces and check that cables are fully secure. Try restarting the printer again if necessary.
If you are upgrading from an ILS20 to an ILS30 (7900 only, not applicable to P7000), please check the following settings in ColorProof software:
Under Output > Configure Printer, choose the Measuring Device as ILS30 M1. See screenshot below.
You can then calibrate the printer using the Auto CaliWizard as normal.
The Auto CaliWizard button is located on the same Output screen, next to the calibration set name.
