The Week in Copiers 15 Years Ago This Week

The Week in Copiers 15 Years Ago for the Last week of June 2015

It is vacation week for me for my day job, however there's no vacation for the Print4Pay Hotel work.  My daily blog on working remote will be put on hold until I return.  Who knows maybe something will break during the week that I'll be able to write about.  Even though I'm on vacation we know we're never really on vacation anymore.

Memory Lock is a feature that allows incoming faxes to be stored, and not printed until an ID Code is entered to retrieve the fzx. On page 38 of the Advanced Features Fax Reference Book explains how to activate this option. If you need the owners manual, we are a Savin dealer, and I can email the pdf file.

Re: Upgrading Memory on 2018d Fax Option

A Tech Instructor at Ricoh told me that memory cannot be upgraded on the 2018d with the all-in-one print/scan/fax option. The system comes with 192mb RAM and the fax option has 160 pages of fax memory. However, if customer is sending out 50 pages of loan docs using legal paper, and has more than 25% coverage, the memory cannot hold the load. And there is no way to partition the memory so only the fax can use more of the 192mb. My only option was to propose a 4410L with Feature Expander as

The Week in Copiers 15 Years Ago This Week

For me 15 years ago was the start of the Golden Age of Color Copiers.  Almost everyone wanted one and the talk track was more about how people retain information better when the content is presented on color.  It was also kind of easy betting up on those old, slow and expensive color laser printers.  My what a run it was.

As Bandit41076 points out, you can also get more info by right clicking on the job in the history line.

I doubt it directly from Ricoh. Most Hard Drive manufacturers cover the hard drive anywhere from 1 to 3 years. You have to go directly to them for that. I did years ago when a hard drive failed on an AF450. It depends on the manufacture and if it was originally purchased by Ricoh and shipped to Singapore or Taiwan, this might have an impact on whether the Mfg will ship a warranty replacement to a different country.

toner leads to dirty corona wires and more service. 3. You can reclaim either mono or dual toner. But if you reclaim the toner you get paper dust in the toner and lose copy quality down the line. The excess toner comes from the toner cleaned off the drum, does not have anything to do with mono or dual toner. Ricoh has had copiers that reclaimed the toner but dropped this for consistent copy quality.

We printed the same document on the AF2238c and on the CL4000DN printer. Same drivers, same DPI settings but the CLP4000DN looks much clearer - the AF2238c looks fuzzy or smudgy - anyone else noticed this? Is there a way to improve the quality on the AF2238?

Trimming the paper is not a solution. Print a border free paper means that the color is exactly at the edge of border, practically we don't have white paper remaining after the print. My question was: CL 7000 or CL 7001 is able to print like this ??? 10x, A.

Re: CL7000 or CL7100

Will any laser based system print to the edge of the paper without trimming? I thought "borderless" printing was only accomplished the way Art described. My mind tells me you would have fuser jam nightmares if the toner was all the way to the edge of the paper. ... then again, I am a bit behind the times.

Both machines will print onto 12 x 18 thru the bypass. Full bleed means printing an 11 x 17 image edge to edge onto 12 x 18. Both machines have a 1/16th void on 4 sides so it wont jam in the fuser. This is why God invented 12 x 18.

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago for the First Week of May 2005

Back in 2005 I was just 2 years into having a real web site for the copier industry.  I started back in 2000 with an message forum with MSN communities.  It was really cool because there was no on-line forum where sales people and principals could chat, share ideas, share war stories, share information, share competitive info and the list goes on and on.  Twenty years later there is still no site like the Print4Pay Hotel.  Did I do something right? 

We're still the only site that allows members to communicate in a secure forums format along with blogs, press releases, quotes, leads and webinars.

Do the same math on the 2045e vs the 2075. You get $260 vs. $373. That's the same $100 difference you got on the printers. I really don't think the methodology you are using is a good judge of value. Compare the price you pay for the extra 15cpm you get on the 2090 vs the 2075. The point is, you are paying for alot more than just speed. That having been said, I agree with you that they are overpriced...I just don't agree with the methodology you used to arrive at your conclusion.

The service manual not only doesnt list the meaning of the codes but doesnt even mention the SP. It goes from 7003 to 7801. The codes were 020 and 024 which have to do with the exit switch as that is the part I replaced and so far has fixed the problem. I called RDC and they had no info of the codes either. Anybody have any additonal info on this?

To make matters worse I'm off to Aruba the first week of March for our Presidents Club Trip. I was able to add a couple of large opportunities this week, one for MNS and the other for 30 plus devices.  At this time both are March or April business and both will take a lot of work to bring them home.

This is caused by the fuser speed, which is slightly lower than the transfer belt speed. Therefore the paper stalls as it get to the fuser rollers giving the grey band. Check out page 4-78 of the service manual and adjust accordingly. You can make the adjustments to get rid of this problem.

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago (Second Week of February 2005)

Just a little more on the show that I'd like to share from this week.  While standing at the end of our booth I was watching the reps from other companies in our section.  So many peeps passed their booth and they did not say a word! No greeting, no communication, they waited for someone to speak to them first.  Needless to say I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that many warm leads were lost because these reps were never taught the fine art of "hawking" while at a trade show. I was taught many years ago by a dealer owner who wanted orders at the show. That art of hawking is to stand (not sit) and to be at the edge of your booth.  Greeting, then the question where they are from (breaks the ice) and then the open ended question of "have you seen" or "do you have". It really does make a difference!

Enjoy the Threads from 15 Tears Ago!

made perfect sense. In a month I was teaching copier theory and basic electronis classes to new techs and ones that had been there for a while. In 1972 I came to work for my present employer and that was just about the time that plain paper copiers were popping up all over the place. The rest is history.

THANK YOU BANDIT. My support team had lost faith in me, I was told I over promised and underdelivered. Thanks to your help, my client is happy, and my colleagues have a new found respect for the sales person and their knowledge and resources. I appreciate everything that you have done. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you in the future. Respectfully, Brian Miller

Re: NESTLE'S ACCOUNT

it is definitley worth the try. I am using HP Laser Jet 3 to push 6 45ppm laser printers. An IT Director for a local company in here in Pgh PA. (STEELER COUNTRY) worked some magic with a black box, some wiring, and things I don't know about, but we were able to get the 6 printers to parallel print the same document on each machine all at once. Anything is possible with patience and a positive attitude. Good Luck.

Ricoh marketing (oops!) was wrong - they did not have the updated service cost fact sheet. Sorry!

So, these drums are only ggod for 80K? Thats bad NEWS! It also creates TWO very large problems, and probably two customers that will never buy Ricoh again!

Re: Need Your Help!!!

I am wondering if the yield is based upon expected use of the machine. I would be very leary of selling a 240W to a customer doing 6K per month. Prospects doing that volume are being quoted 470W's by me. I am looking to place the 240's in environments that are doing 2-4K per month. Any thoughts on this?

this is from one of my system guys: if anyonce can help me out, I would greatly appreicate it. Whenever .plt files are created from within AutoCAD 2004 using the hp design jet 650 c driver and printing to a file, those files are being cut off when they are plotted. In other words, if a .dwg file is converted within AutoCAD to a .plt file using the above mentioned driver, and it is say, a 36 x 24 drawing, the end result is a 22 inch wide drawing. It is almost as if the file is being printed with

Riso in School systems

Guest ·
Has anyone run up against Riso in the school system? I am going up against a Toshiba dealer that sells Risographs as well and was curious if anyone has gone head to head and been successful doing so. Also, what Riso models were they trying to place in the school systems; the 220 model? Any information you guys can provide on Riso ie Price would be helpful. Thanks!

We have two service cost fact sheets from Ricoh service in reference to the photodrum. Both show the same cost per LF of about .013 per LF, both show the same cost based on a user performing 59,000LF per year. However the sheet that I recieved from Ricoh Marketing (which is a service cost fact sheet) shows the life of the drum at 131K LF, the lasted from TCS shows the life at 80K LF. Which one is right? 80K LF is the same yield as the 240W and the other analogs. If it is 80K LF, this makes this

My company is new to the Wide Format market, but this is what I have seen. Pricing is very similar.....Xerox is always around as is OCE. I don't have lots of product knowledge, and have only placed 1 piece so far, and it' has been a nightmare.. The biggest challenge that I see right now is HP. I have been looking for applications where people are currently using plotters....Everything always goes great but HP can sell a plotter with a scan option for under 6k....The differnce on the front is

I personally have a bad taste in my mouth for this option. I'll need to read up on it to see if they've corrected what caused my deal to go bad, but at the time the GBC had a time out of about a minute, it was not an option to be used on the print driver. Hopefully these have been addressed.
