My Composer Max is not picking discs or is dropping discs. (Calibration Instructions)

Answer

My Composer Max is not picking discs or is dropping discs. (Calibration Instructions)

Use the instructions below and the three buttons on the front of the ComposerMax to calibrate the picking position of the arm.

Note: For best results connect the ComposerMax via the serial cable and open the PrimoDVD program before beginning calibration procedures.

All tray locations, disc bins, and the top two CD drive calibrations.

  1. Place a disc on the picker or pick a disc using the pick button.
  2. Press the Sequence button until you are over to the tray you want to adjust.
  3. Hold the Sequence and Pick button until the lights flash.
  4. While the lights are flashing, press the Pause button once to set the current calibration location.
  5. Press the Pause or Sequence button to shift the arm left or right.
  6. Press Pick to set the calibration.
  7. Power off and reboot the MAX.

Two lower CD/DVD drive calibrations.

  1. Place a disc on the picker or pick a disc using the pick button.
  2. Hold the Sequence button and the Pick button until the lights flash.
  3. While the lights are flashing press the Sequence button once.
  4. While the lights are still flashing, now press Pause for the left lower drive or the Pick button for the lower right drive.
  5. Press the Pause or Sequence button to shift the calibration left or right.
  6. Press Pick to set the calibration.

Pick depth.

Place a single disc in the center tray.

  • Hold the Sequence and Pick button until the lights flash.
  • While the lights are flashing, press the Pick button once.
  • Adjust the depth with the Pause and Sequence buttons.
  • Pressing the Pause button will make it pick shallower and Sequence will make it pick deeper.
  • Press the Pick button once to set the depth.

Note: Even though this calibration is performed only on one bin it will affect all pick postions.

Calibration of the Printer Stand.

  1. Open the printer tray with the disc in/out button. On the Ink-Jet CD Printer, this is the button with the two arrows pointing different directions. On the Thermal CD Printer, this is the button on the lower right side of the front panel.
  2. Press the Sequence button repeatedly until the arm is aligned over the Printer Tray.
  3. Press and hold the Pick button. After 5 seconds, the Robotic Arm will lower the disc to the printer's tray. The disc should align properly with the tray. If it does not align properly, you will need to adjust the printer stand's Mounting Plate. This is accomplished by loosening the four Phillips-head adjusting screws and moving the printer slightly in one direction or another until the disc is dropped perfectly into the printer's tray. You can repeatedly press the Pick button to test your alignment. When the alignment is correct, tighten down the screws securely.

Fine Tune Adjustment of the Printer Tray.

If left to right adjustment of the printer tray pick position is needed, use these instructions.
  1. Place a disc on the picker or pick a disc using the pick button.
  2. Press the Sequence button until you are over to the printer tray.
  3. Hold the Sequence and Pick button until the lights flash.
  4. While the lights are flashing, press the Pause button once to set the current calibration location.
  5. Press the Pause or Sequence button to shift the arm left or right.
  6. Press Pick to set the calibration.
  7. Power off and reboot the MAX.
