This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The Second Week of March 2008

 

Ah, 2008 and not one of my favorites years.  The economy was tanking.  Clients that were at the end of the lease were opting to buy the equipment instead of upgrading. Credit became really tight, especially for start ups, and many companies were closing, declaring bankruptcy or one day they were open and the next day they were not. Some say that the economy really didn't rebound until 2015.  Any way you slice it, it was a horrendous seven years.  Looking back, I would also tend to think that the great decline in pages started back in 08.



Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week!

Re: Ricoh c3000 manual input of fax number.

I tried that, wouldn't work. I didn't even realize that this was happening until I was showing the customer how to use the machine after I installed it. It won't let you input a number manually on the main fax screen. You have to select "Manual Input" under the fax # window. Another window pops up and only then can you enter the number. After you press "Start" the window pops back up for you to enter it a second time. Then you press "Start" again and it will finally dial. It's really weird...

You may have to dig deep into the parameter settings and see what is turned on and off. I'll bet it is a parameter setting that is making it do this.

Re: Ricoh c3000 manual input of fax number.

Weird indeed. There is a bit switch setting to force all settings back to factory default. I think I would perform this. Print out a system parameter list first.

Re: MP1100 issues

Had the exact same error on a new DSm775 and it took forever and almost the account to fix it. I believe it was the DF board. The problem would only occur when more than one original was being run from the ADF. Off the glass or one DF original and it would run all day. I flashed the NVRAM, reseated all the RAM (4) to no avail. Then I replaced the DF Board and the data (not the CIS) harness and it works! I cant be sure which one was at fault, I burned both of the parts in a ritual ceremony.

Re: Ricoh c3000 manual input of fax number.

We tried doing a ram clear on the fax option but it did not make any change in the manual dial procedure. What it did do was clear all the user parameters for the fax unit back to default which changed the setting so that the machine prints a fax report after every successful transmission. The customer does not want this. When I went into user tools for fax and tried to print off user parameters the machine will not let me, it displays that I dont have permissions to do so. Even if I try to...

Well, we solved the problem. There was a bulletin out on this issue. The toner supply tube was kinked and toner wasn't getting to the hopper. Supposedly a manufacturing problem. Moved the tube/hose and service guys did a couple of other things and poof, everythings works great. I won't go into how I managed to break the staple unit, thats another story. Thanks for the help.

Me too. Remove DOSS, physically and in user tools. See if you can then set the machine as usual.

Problem went away after I upped the RAM from 512 MB to 1.2 GB on the external controller, and defragged the HDD. Still concerned that jobs in the Plot Base queue printed only after restarting the copier, before the upgrade. I don't see any connection. I'll post any significant observations. Greg

What in the world is a " foomatic-rip bug ", and where did you get this from?
Reply

Re: Ricoh Aficio MP 161 and Duplex Prinitng

Foomatic-RIP is an internal component of the Foomatic runtime printing system. Note from Art: I just reposted this from a site I found on the web, will share with all http://forums.linux-foundation.org/read.php?30,4903

Re: Ricoh Catalog on your company website

·
Some of you might remember that awhile back, I asked everyone how they went about getting a Ricoh Product Catalog of some kind on their website. The only answers I got were “link to the www.ricoh-usa.com site” or “Structured Web.” Neither answer was acceptable to me. We had done the Structured Web approach and the catalog was never anything close to current. The ricoh-usa link also linked our customers/prospects to every Ricoh competitor in our territory when they clicked on the “Sales and...
