·
Not sure where in the forum to put this as it is a question for some help from a dealer that is a Sharp dealer as well as Ricoh. So thought I would just try this general discussion for a start. We need some help to try to find a Product code for a Sharp ARM350 unit to enable the scan. We bought the product as a lease return and it came from the US (we are in Canada). In order to activate some of the features on these units you must have a product code for the unit which matches with the serial

C450 was replaced by the C451 in June. We got a bulletin from Konica on June 8 that they were out of inventory on the C450. (The C451 is one very cool unit.) (Edited to attach Konica's press release about the C451 launch.)

Ricoh Catalog on your company website

Who can tell me how or who to contact to see about having the Ricoh Product Catalog appear on my company website?

I wouldn't assume that. Just because they can't buy any more new from Konica doesn't mean that they don't have new inventory in their company's warehouse or other source. Their purchasing manager might have stocked up, a client might have rescinded an order before delivery and they were stuck with it, who knows.... Still gives you a tactical selling point, though.
