Art, you've got to look at it this way. there is almost no residual on a machine that is 5 years old these days. Most 5 year old digitals are junk. Would you sell an Aficio 400 or 500 now? They're only 5 years old. The machines on 3 or 4 year leases do have value. You and I are both selling used 550's and 650's. They still are decent machines. In a year or so, however, they too will be basically junk. So from the leasing company's view, a 5 year FMV lease is a write off when they get it

it would do fine. As far as "proofing" this isn't the machine The definition of Camera Ready Art from webopedia is: Historically, the term has meant that the copy is ready to be photographed and turned into plates for offset printing. Increasingly, however, it is possible to print directly from the electronic version, either by sending it to a high-resolution laser printer or to a special device that can generate plates directly from electronic elements rather than from photographs.

From: Graham Sent: 9/22/2002 3:37 PM From what I understand, you can turn off the automatic callibration (callibration sometimes gets in the way of time when printing) I know this is not recommended by Ricoh. The printer automaticly callibrates everytime it is turned on and from time to time during operation. If you auto callibration off, it will only callibrate when it is power cycled. This could possibly be the problem that you are having and why it is good to go after powercycled. Just an

From: spressomon Sent: 5/10/2002 8:46 AM It gets down to the fact Ricoh and most of the Japanese copier companies are not true business partners with their independent dealers. We all have numerous, validatable, horror stories about them. Some of our issues would even prove Ricoh has violated federal (monopoly) laws. But here we go every day trying to put all that behind us in the essence of trying to make a decent, honest buck.

From: Mr. Tibbs Sent: 7/15/2002 7:29 AM I'm not too sure about the Ricoh AP4500 Printer, but the AP3800C can be "secured" so that only hosts with a certain IP scheme can print to it. Try to configure the Access Control Address and the Access Control Mask on the NIC. If you read your network manual, it will explain how to set this up. Hope this information helps....

I was able to submit print jobs over the internet and watch the status of the controllers change from ready to printing and back to ready, read the counters, watch them increment, etc. Thanks! Lee

Re: Printing from Word Perfect

book so he can learn it. What a mess! As for setting the number of prints, you can also do it from the front screen, you just need to make sure the coalate box is unchecked. Since this is a known issue (the coalate box) hopefully, in time Ricoh will do something to simplify this for the customers within their drivers.

Could we plug an Aficio 1022 w/scan router lite and have the docs directed to the printer for IP printing? No, this is not a capability of any of the ScanRouter Products. 2.

Re: Xerox DOC 12 vs 6513 Matchprint

rom: Graham Sent: 10/31/2002 6:05 PM I have a hard time believing that you are out of the ball park on the 6513 unless Xerox has done some major price reductions. I lost one with an E-820 to Xerox based on print samples alone (The print samples from the Xerox were from a system that and an additional $10K option installed on it NOT what they bought) now the customer is regretting buying the Xerox. We were lower than Xerox at DMAP6. Remember, you can use DMAP6 cost for Any print for pay customer.

Re: 3800C Fuser Yields

Art, The Fuser Unit yield is impacted more by the number of pages per set. The lower the number of pages per set, the lower the yield on the Fuser Unit. This is pretty much true with all Color laser printers on the market today, not just Ricoh. Hope this helps.

In other words, you can't just walk up to the machine and randomly input various email addresses that are not programmed. Any validity to this? Thanks, Shawn

Re: Page Numbering and Stamping

From: Ted Sent: 11/22/2002 6:28 AM I'm sure it would not have been difficult for Ricoh to put the same features, i.e. all the user stamp functions and booklet making mode on the 3800CMF. However, they still need a reason for us to sell the B (&W) 35cpm machines. Once they get the cost of the black toner cost down, the 35cpm, in my opinion, will become obsolete. You can easily cost justify the 3800CMF vs the AF1035 with all the extra you get. Just the cost of the Black is too high right now.
