    Ricoh c901s

    Too bad Ricoh doesn't sell paper - Then you could just tell them the problem is that they aren't using Ricoh paper. But, no company would do that, right?....

    Konica Minolta C6501 bizhub - Duplexing from tray 4-12x18

    You may run into fusing issue with this method. The coated cover stocks fuse at a higher temp than the text weights. Turning "CPM Down" on usually helps if you're having a problem. I don't know if this machine lets you change fusing temps in service mode - but if it does - that's your fix. 1)...

    Scripting print run from PDF

    I agree with this method. Use Acrobat to split the file every four pages. Then drop all (1100) files into a direct-print hot folder configured for the booklets. One question though; If you drop 1100 files at once into a hot folder, what order are they processed in? Alphabetical? I'm assuming...

    Can the KMC6501 fold an 11x17 in half while printing?

    Out of the four available finishers for that model, the FS-503 Staple Finisher (100 Sheet Stapler) is the only one that doesn't support half-folding. SD-501 Saddle Stitcher: Half-folds and center-staples up to 50 sheets for 200-page booklet-making ─ with nested half-fold and letter fold...

    Konica Minolta Bizhub PRO C6500 Question?

    We sold a similarly configured machine a few years ago for $10k. I've seen them cheaper recently. A few things to consider.... How many prints per month do you expect to make? Konica will likely price color clicks over 7.5 cents each on a used machine like this. Plus you'll have to pay out of...

    The 5th Toner

    Our Ricoh tech was in today and we were talking about different production machines such as the Xerox 1000 with it's clear toner and he said that the new Ricoh machine (not sure which one) has a mysterious 5th bay that isn't used, but he was told by the engineers it's for "future uses". So maybe...

    More trouble with our C900

    Have you escalated this service request? A second bad board in the Fiery would have me demanding a new Fiery. You need to get an engineer in there not just the techs. It could be the mother board, could be the power supply or any other number of things. Replacing the fiery will either eliminate...

    And I Expected Quality.... (short rant)

    I'll try using PitStop next time to resize things, I'm not as familiar with it as I should be, and stuff like that is faster for me in Illustrator (As long as the PDF is 2 pgs or less). The enlarge or trim smaller options wouldn't work in this case as there are elements (that aren't meant to...
