Starting in August of 2017,
all gates for the Universal now come equipped with
UV LED emitters as standard. Through extensive
testing with a variety of LEDs, we found that this
particular UV LED from this particular supplier has
difficulty penetrating various types of plastics. As
such, they are ideal for use on the RetroPro or
Universal scanners where film sometimes has a clear
edge or patches of light areas. The UV LEDs make
dialing in the sensor knob much easier and results
in an overall steadier picture. If you have a
RetroPro or Universal unit with the old style blue
LEDs in the sensor block, we can supply you with a
set of the new UV LEDs. We were handing them out for
free but, with thousands of customers, the response
has been overwhelming and costly, both in terms of
the LEDs as well as shipping. Therefore, we must now
charge a modest amount for them. They are easy to
install and all you need is are small phillips and a
flat blade screw drivers. Instructions for
installation can be found HERE.
The new UV LEDs are $1.00
Postal shipping inside the USA is $10.00.
Postal shipping outside the USA is $20.00.
