    Jitter on Ricoh C5200?

    Having an issue on my Ricoh C5100 and C5200 presses with banding on the trailing half of the sheet (see photo!). I've been running these presses for about 4 years now, and never had an issue this bad. With any pastel shades, I get this banding, sometimes one, sometimes two on the end of the...

    Konica Minolta Bizhub C552 Banding in Greyscale

    Hi We've just aquired a KM C552. I know it's classed as an office machine with no rip, but it's main use for us will be as a backup machine and for walk in copying so our Xerox's can be left to run. Problem we are having is banding on greyscale, about every 4mm. Engineer has no idea on how...

    Trimming Perfect Bound Books

    Kind of embarrassed to ask this, as I've bound and trimmed thousands of perfect bound paperback books in my time, but the last time I done some was about 15 years ago, so my memory has let me down a bit!! I used to work for a large printing company running the Horizon binding line, but I left...

    Xerox Docucolor Clicks

    Hi I am looking to find the general opinion on Xerox clicks on Docucolor machines, especially from anyone that has a Xerox on an all inclusive service contract. Obviously the counters count one click per sheet, regardless of size. However, on your click contracts, do large sheets get charged...

    Calibrating a Xerox DC5252?

    Hi We have a Xerox DC250 on contract with Xerox, which we calibrate with Colorcal, and it runs fine. Due to workloads however we have just added a DC5252 which is under a contract with a private dealer. The company who are supplying the DC5252 say it does not need calibrating as it has an...

    DC250 pauses

    Hi, My DC250 has started to pause for about 5 seconds after every 5th sheet SRA3. I am not using complicated files, just basic compliment slips, so mainly text based. It never used to do this. It can make the printing quite slow going. Does anyone know if this could be a problem with the...
