On 2 separate machines in 2 separate locations today (Savin C9020 and Savin C2828) I encountered the same problem. When printing multiple copies using the PCL drivers the systems rotate sorted. This is a pain when you want to print 10 copies of a single page document and every one is criss-crossed. I worked with tech support on several work arounds, but have not found a satisfactory solution yet. Has anyone else seen this and do you have a solution? I have toggled Ignore Application Collate and

We tried to order a Lanier LD533c (MP C3300) and were told that that the product has been discontinued. Has anyone seen pricing on the new models and Lanier model #'s for this series? The order was placed 2 weeks ago, and Ricoh just now told us that we can't get the product. As you can imagine, the customer is getting antsy, but we can't even re-sign the lease for the new model since Ricoh says info will be released this Friday.

Quota setting is a new feature that allows administrators to set limits on the volumes that individual users or groups can run on the machine. More than a User Code tracking feature, limits can be placed on different kinds of output (color/B&W mode, copy or print, etc.)

After 40 years of selling (all copiers) it's been an interesting ride to day the lease.  In January I'll be starting my 41 year in the same industry, in the same state, in the same territory.  Yes, at times I think about retiring and then I'm reminded that I'm not done yet. I still have goals that I'd like to accomplish but not for myself, now it's more about passing the torch of knowledge to others.

Re: Secret code 'traces copies'

Yes, the code reveals the unit's serial number, and yes this has been around for years. (I remember learning about it in about 1992). At the time I was told that the Goverment threatened to ban the sale of color copiers in the US (counterfeit concerns) unless Canon developed a method to track the serial number of each machine in each copy. This is also why most color machines will not make a copy if they cannot detect their own serial number.

Yes, it is possible to assign your own ICC/ICM profile for the copier. In the driver, click the "color management" tab and select "manual". Then assign is the color profile you wish your machine to use. I have to point out here that assigning a profile in this way does little to improve the prints from the machine. Changing profiles can only limit the gamut of the output you will recieve, never make it larger. Let me explain... my 3228 is currently printing 100% of it's possible gamut (total

Hi Art, Unfortunately, this is a known limitation of Print Audit 5.

Ok... First, you said "PS driver", so I was looking at a PS driver on a PC. Applying this profile does not in any way help you match exact colors. All that ICC/ICM profiles do is define the Gamut of the printer. All that does is help your driver map colors that are out of gamut into the gamut of the printer. If you want to apply an ICC profile in OSX, copy your ICC profile to System/Library/Colorsync/Profiles. Then in Printer Manager, click on your printer and click the "Colorsync" icon at the

doesnt the sharp frontier series have color cpp right now that is close to a3 color? Seems to me like they're innovating faster and getting new features to market first and getting a share of the margins that come with that. I was really happy when c2050/2550 came to market and we had an edge for a moment, but think about it: print from smart card, free sharp desk seat, a4 color, segment 3's with single pass duplex scanning, pull out usb keyboard...

Ricoh product ranks at the top of the industry. That being said, selling today is about far more than the box. What other value can you bring to the table with a given vendor/dealer? How about professional services, managed print services, software solutions, etc... I would take all of these into account when contemplating a move. If you are with or go to a dealer that only sells "boxes" you are limiting your self.

I talked to an IT Manager today who told me that if you format a HDD immediately twice in a row, it effectively destroys all useable data on the HDD. Most HDs store data in two parts. The Security Key and the data. Some Data removal software programs only remove the security key. I am told this is like removing the Index from a book and scrambling up the book. The data is still there but needs to be rebuilt.
