The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

First Week of May 2011

Funny thing happened while building a new walk way at my house.  There were a couple of spirea plants that I wanted to remove.  Over the years got crappy looking since I there are in my front yard where there is full sun.  There were three of them and today I dug out the last one.  I had to get on my hands and knees to get some of the shooter roots.  While I was prying the spirea out... there it was my wedding ring that I lost so many years ago.  I was elated and out the ring on my finger and thought how really this awesome this was.  After finishing for the day I marched into the house to tell my wife, I looked at my finger and the ring had slipped off while working!  OMG, now I need a metal detector.

Enjoy these awesome copier threads from ten years ago this week!

The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

First Week of April 2006

This Thursday will mark the beginning of April which is also known as April Fools Day.

"Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. In the Julian Calendar, as in the Hindu calendar, the new year began with the spring equinox around April 1."

However for our beloved copier industry April Fools Days can bring about many changes. April 1st is also the start of the new fiscal year for most of our Japanese manufacturers. Some of those changes are good and some really stink, I'm afraid that we'll see massive reductions in the work force from many of our manufacturers and that's because of a full year of COVID related losses.  I hope not but I think the writing is on the wall.

I don't think you could have a selling sales manager who also (actually) manages 6 people. Selling sales mangers are great in areas that need someone in charge but the number of reps do not justify a manager (usually 2-3 reps). If you want someone to hire, train and actually manage people, don't give them a quota for individual sales. If you want someone to answer a few questions and turn in the month end paperwork without really "managing" anything, go with a selling sales manager.

It sounds like Ricoh may be signing up a few Wide Format only Dealers in the next few months, which may cause further marketplace distribution issues amongst current Ricoh (Savin and Lanier as well) Dealers.

Re: Batches of PDFs ????

The web tool is also quite cumbersome to drill down multiple levels over the network to find and select the files you need to print in the tiny window they give you. Quite frustrated. Not a good way to start off with a new model and with a new client. Tech support was little help.

Re: Drum Yields

Many drums fall short for a variety of reasons. A little know secret in the industry is that you would only get "x" amount of pages based on multiple page prints. Meaning if you always printed just one or two pages you could drop the drum yield by quite a bit. I too would like to hear from others on this!

Customer prints 90% of the volume.

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

I had this question pop up in a demo last week, and our Sales Engineer told me that there is a code that can be input in Service Mode that will enable Print-from-USB on the RFG equipment. I emailed our DSS and confirmed. The first thing I did was revise pricing I had submitted to a church w/ the same need, because initially I had proposed a desktop Lexmark MFP as a second device to provide this feature. Apparently, Ricoh doesn't publicize this as a standard feature

Decision issued for DOE copier purchase

Art Post (Guest) ·
by Sabrina Salas Matanane Guam - The Office of Public Accountability has dismissed the appeal filed last month by Island Business Systems & Supplies regarding the Department of Education's failure to issue a decision on IBSS's September protest concerning copiers. The public auditor finds that she does not have the jurisdiction to hear IBSS's appeal because DOE has failed to produce a decision. Instead, the auditor has jurisdiction to hear an appeal of a written decision from the purchasing

I just got off the phone with a Ricoh Service Support guy who says it can only be done if the machine has "media print support" which is what has to be turned on for it to work. Something about 1110-?? I am not validating his answer, only telling you what I was told. I have not yet heard back from my DSS. Can you share more details please?

You didn't hear this from me but today we printed from a USB Flashdrive using a Ricoh MP C2550. We asked for and received from Ricoh a beta version java card. It doesn't work with an SD card, you have to have PostScript and it is not supported by Ricoh.

According to BERTL, it is still current, but with a launch date of June 2004, that seems absurd even though it is still in our price book. Since Toshiba OEM'd this product, I wonder if Ricoh committed to a certain number of them and never sold the inventory.

Re: Top 9 Blunders that B2B Sales Reps Make

Blunder #9: They don’t follow through. What they do: After the deal has gone through, they don’t bother to make certain that the customer is delighted. Why they do it: They feel that they are “too busy” working on new accounts and developing new business. What happens: The reps find that the key to success in sales — repeat business — never really develops because the customers fell that the rep doesn’t really care. As a result, the rep is constantly forced to develop new contacts and new

This is about to get interesting for those of us who picked up a 2nd A4 line while Ricoh dragged their feet. Lexmark is due to release larger A4 color in January as well. Good times.

Yes, I agree, we only picked up the Sammies for monochrome no color, we've stuck with Ricoh for that. I just hoping Ricoh doesn't screw it up with higher cpp than the A3 color machines.....something is telling me that the A4 color will be higher, however I hope I'm wrong. If A4 color price is higher than A3 color, that leaves the door open for someone to develop a color A4 with A3 cpp pricing.

I see these types of products making a serious impact on our business. From what I see from the video, I can't remember ever seeing a color laser that would be able to output documents that fast, especially with the envelope output. It's the tip of the iceberg with probably faster products to come down the road. Potential Users: Churches Colleges CRD's Print Shops Anyone else care to add to the list of potential markets?

Never lost a deal to this but came close about a year ago. Ended up bundling in a Ricoh 1000sf that has this as a standard feature into the deal. It ran $315 retail plus shipping and it was a wash when looking at costs of adding the USB scan to option on the Ricoh device. Not sure if that 1000sf is still around or not though.

Thanks for the confirmation. I had the same line of thought. I feel like the Toshiba eSTUDIO311c has been long gone for a while.

It is still on my price sheets from Ricoh but they are dated July so there may be something more recent.
