This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago (First Week of March 2004)

Seems we're coming to the end of the first quarter already. After dumping everything into the end of 2018. I've had a rough go of it for the past 7 weeks. Last week proved to be better with two orders and one of them was $45K.

We're also going see have then end of the fiscal years for most if not all of the copier manufacturers.  This time of years scares me because nothing is safe, you need to ask the tough questions up front and try your best to wrap up business either the day you met with the client or a few days after. Keep in mind that you need to set the next meeting with your prospect or client at the end of the first meeting. This can or will stop the ghosting or playing phone tag.

Enjoy these awesome threads from 15 years ago this week!

I have no idea (somw say there is too much information here), I believe we keep the Ricoh excitment alive, share new ideas, and share stories and above all move more boxes. Do you need a copy, I can email it to you or upload to doc mall. You can access it there.

logic would tell me this is not a relable if it is not to be released until 2005. If Ricoh was relabling another OEM they would not have specs for a machine a year out. Would they? I think 4 months (if that) would be all another OEM would give on a machine in the works. JG

Re: SR 860 FOLDING WITHOUT STAPLING

There is a work around that is not sanctioned by Ricoh. You must take the staple cartridge out of the SR 860 and then defeat the sensor that tells the SR 860 that the staple cartridge has been removed. Or just remove the staple from the cartridge and defeat the sensor that tells the system it is out of staples. Make sure you try this with your techs blessing. Anyone know of any other ways to make this happen?

The Patriots are now on a 14 game winning streak. They will go into the Super Bowl on the longest streak of any team since the '72 Dolphins. And Peyton Manning is putting together what might be the best postseason for a QB in NFL history. As for you folks that are picking an NFC team, you are out of your mind. Everyone knows that the "real Super Bowl" is this week's AFC Championship game. GO PATS!!

If you have an image file that you want to use as an overlay, the first thing you have to do is print it using the RPCS driver and print to an overlay file...under job type...then you can call it from the RPCS driver and add it to the document in question.

Graham, They don't want to store them on document server, they only want to place them there temporarily so that they can retrieve them back to a computer and store them to file or cd, then delete those files.

I don't think you can set it to default to require a password....Why not just use scan to email?? That doesn't require any software install like scan router does?

Selling office equipment is a business and these decisions are made every day in every sector of the business community so office equipment dealers shouldn’t feel singled out.

I can tell you that the 9000MFP is not a good deal. My Church here in Boise was given one of these on the pre-launch Delta program that HP has. This machine has had so many problems, not to mention the slow FCO time, but also the poor technical support from HP. The Saddle Stitch finisher has never quite worked right either. I would stay away from it. The folks at the church refer to it as "That Boat Anchor". The 9000MFP is indeed a PRINTER that they have attached a scanner to, not that that is

My sales month ended today, thus allowing time for our beloved bean counters the chance to close the month on the calendar end of month.   don't mind and I'm kind of use to it. I figure that closing the month early gives me two end of the month chances to close some orders.  Of course one is our actual close and the other is calendar end of month.  December this year is a little frightening since Christmas falls on a Tuesday.  Which means most will not be working on the 24th.  Thus December only gives me 19 selling days compared to the average month that has 22 selling days.

I am not sure now if I had to change the paper size at the copy machine for the bypass, I do know that I sent the job from MS WORD, both from Tools/Envelopes and Labels and by creating an envelope size document (so I could add color graphics to my envelope) and they printed out without a problem.

Re: NEW Duplicator with Paper Cassette

·
I saw this system demo'd @ Ricoh several years ago. Its development name is Ruby. As you can see from the picture, it is the same design style as the JP5000/5450, thus an older unit, not new. It also only supports UC6 and CPIF26, because it does not have the updated main board to support the Type 80. The product was deemed not suitable for the US market due to the fact that is doesn't have a large capacity exit tray to match the LCT, and the sorter limits you to run lengths of 40 per original

Ricoh will be releasing a another duplicator based on the JP 3000 engine. The model number will be the JP4500. Higher dpi and a new revolutionary master material will increase ink yeild and quality. There may e a few more goodies on this box, I hope its the large capacity cassette, then all we'll need is a large capacity exit tray!!

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Second Week in September 2003

Haha!  Something pretty funny in with one of the links below. "Moving closer to the paperless office".  This was fifteen years ago.

Do you remember the Ricoh C1224? Was a color MFP that had a speed of 12 pages per minute in color and 24 pages per minute in black.  Needless to say that Ricoh never informed sales that the copier would go into auto calibrate during a print or copy run for up to minutes!  Relive that experience with the threads below

Enjoy the threads from 15 years ago this week.

Graham, I believe that they would not be able to print directly from autocad unless they converted the files to a .plt extension. I am not sure if the postscript option will allow you to print direct without the file conversion. I have autocad lite 2000 on my laptop and could send you a few .plt files. All you have to do to convert the files to that format is check the plot to file box in autocad when you are printing. It will create a PLT file instead of a DWG file and you should be able to do

You need to make sure that you have the PostScript option installed. You will not be able to print from the DOC server or use anything like scan router, DTB etc. Just remember, all of the applications that come with it are windows based and all you can really do is print and scan to email if their network will support it. You will have to install the accessories manually and then you can use them. Otherwise, that should be the only major thing
