I’m new to this forum so first I’ll say hello.
Secondly I wondered if anyone has had any luck on focusing a blurry lid camera? Mine has been blurry since it arrived and therefore doesn’t recognize the proofgrade material. Not a huge deal but kinda sucks. The GF customer support response was to send the entire unit in and expect a $400-$1000 invoice.
Anyway… I wondered if any of you all had dug into this issue and if you had any suggestions.
thanks and look forward to reading through more of your topics.
So yes, the camera doesn’t read any QR codes. I haven’t tried moving the QR around from eth lower right side but I’ll give that a try. The QR recognition was spotty for a while but almost never worked properly. I haven’t done the calibration step but I don’t think that would improve the focus, just how it maps the fish eye effect.
I haven’t tried twisting the lens yet. I was wondering if that might have the desired effect, but I always hate banging on things without knowing how they go together. Especially when the fix is so expensive. Thanks for your thoughts.
Turns out, after a few weeks of back and forth with GF customer service, and reminding them of some previous customer service emails (while the machine was still under warranty) , GF has agreed to repair the unit for no cost, and very reduced shipping. So at this point I’ll just send it in.
This experience has opened my eyes to what any possible future repairs might entail. So I super appreciate groups like this that help demystify the technology so we can keep these running well intro the future.
