    Slip sheet jamming on exit in Magnus autoloader - FIXED!

    Hello everyone, We have a Magnus 800 with an autoloader that was jamming when trying to eject slip sheets: the slip sheets were wrapping around the roller. At first, it was every so often, then it turned into a chronic problem jamming every time. This was caused by the roller becoming sticky...

    Epson 9800 "empty" ink cartridges

    Here's a tip to help save some money, and you get what you paid for in the first place. As a lot of you may have experienced, the Epson 9800 (maybe some of the other models too?) will say an ink cartridge is empty, but when you remove it there is ALWAYS ink remaining in the cartridge.

    We have an Azura C125 rinse gum unit (processor) that is about 4 years old now and we're having a couple problems with it. First issue is that Agfa changed the chemistry of the TS Gum a while back and since then we're getting a thick blue sludge in our system that is a real hassle to deal...

    I am considering getting an Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) for my Mac at work. Has anyone out there done this successfully and if so, do you have any recommendations?

    Value of an Epson 10600 that doesn't work

    We have an Epson 10600 that has sat on the floor, in our way, for about a year now.

    Looking for Spinjet manuals

    We just bought a used SpinJet 1000 from a printer who went out of business and the equipment didn't include any manuals or disks.

    distilled water

    I see that some people are using distilled water in their processors. Why would you use distilled water instead of tap water? Just wondering, maybe we could benefit from that too. We have a Fuji Saber plate system. Thanks for your input.
