Re: SR90

the sales info guide and ran it. I was very impressed. The client was even impressed with the output. Also, I was connected with my laptop to run the job. Never had to try to run it from the system. The 80lb covers were pre-printed and were fed through the Cover Inserter on the SR90. Let me know if this is the same type of scenario. By the way, Art. This is also a reply to you from your feedback last week. The 80lb cover went into this job without a glitch.

Re: USER CODES on 1055 PRINT OPTION

see, thats what I thought, however in user codes, you can only turn on the copier and document server features. I thought that it could be a way that it had been set up, but I called RICOH and they told me that the 55 cannot track or restrict prints. Now, I don't know, I don know that alot of times the help line guys are never sure about things

SR90

The SR 90 is much improved from the SR 85 but here is one thing it can't do. Customer has a 50 page 8 1/2 by 11 job(page count doesn't matter) and they want to print it to the SR90 paginated and with a different color cover. Seems easy enough but the 2090/SR90 puts the cover on the inside of the booklet. Not the outside. Oddly enough if you print the job with the same settings but NOT through the SR90 it prints correctly. Ricoh is now aware of the issue and hopefully will have a fix. The only

Re: 35 /45 Saddle Stitch Finisher

I believe it is made by Canon and is a proven unit. It is and operates from what I can see very similar to the Saddle Stitch finisher from the old 551 and 700. I also think that you lose the shift sort functionality with this finisher (PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG ON ANY OF THIS). There are a number of pros and cons to this finisher, if you need and do lots of saddle stitch it is fine, if you do little saddle stitch and are going to get this for the convenience of it, I would stick with a

I believe you have to set the codes in the System Settings of the 1055. And then turn on the user codes for printing. It is just like the 551.

Re: 400 DPI IMAGE MOVEMENT!!!

I don't know how much you have worked with these but some things to keep in mind with dig. dups...The print will move some on every sheet and every pass. It just isn't noticed with a single color or on the first pass. Therefore, on a two-color of red and black for instance, the black has moved alittle "+" on some sheets and alittle "-" on others as did the red on the second pass. The problems come in on those sheets where the black went alittle "+" on the same sheet where the red went alittle

Macintosh Desktop Faxing and a 1022

I have a client (architect) that is all mac. Mac servers and mac workstations. They would like to enable desktop faxing from a 1022. They would also like all faxes recived to be routed to a network folder. I'm guessing that the Ricoh fax droiver is not Mac compatable. Can anyone verify that. What is I got a cheap PC and put it on their network and shared it. Can the fax drivers live their as well as that shared network folder? Thanks in advance for ther input.

Re: fax user tracking

If it were not for the program Greg Crews loaded here, I would not have been abloe to access the cross reference that easily. At this time I do not have any answer for you, does anyone know if the 4410L (Ricoh) can do this?

Actually it was borrowed from the Austrailian Web Site of Ricoh. I thought it would be good to have Ricoh marketing info from all over the world. Those doc should be on the Aficio League. Did you all know that if you find a post interesting and find that it may be good stuff for a potential client you can email the story of the post right from our site!

Item #CM-0347 is what you are looking for. It's a two-color single-page flyer with a Banner Line that reads "Ricoh Group #1 in U.S. Copier Market for Segments 1-6 for the year 2002!" Under that is two pie-charts...one showing segments 1-6 with Ricoh at 23.1%and the other showing just segments 5&6 with Ricoh at 33.7%.
