Question about Ricoh Aficio Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Tristan Slow printing of PDF's from a Ricoh C4500. We have changed network ports on the wall to test networking issues. New network cables, replaced the motherboard on the printer. Added a PS Script SD card. We tried Ricoh C4500 PCL5 & 6 drivers, the PCL 5 local drivers worked fine. Updated the Windows 2003 server with the PCL 5 drivers and back to the same issue again. So it does seem to be a driver issue. Any ideas or help would be appreciated. Current printing time for PDF's is 3 minutes per page...40page documents take a while and hold everyone else up.

Try saving document to desktop then print it. Sometimes there is info in pdf you don't see. I have had customers that have this type problem and after they save it prints just fine.

Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.

SOURCE: connected ir3300 to network. Can ping static ip

Did you just install a NIC (aka ethernet port) in your copier?
To print Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 needs to be installed. This contains the NIC and the N Boot-Rom. The copier then needs to be upgraded with networked firmware using SST.
Go into Service Mode (Additional Functions > 2,8 > Additional Functions). Go to Copier > Display > Version. Check the number for BOOT-ROM. This should have a N at the end. If not you need to replace the C BOOT-ROM with a N BOOT-ROM.
Also under Copier > Display > Version check the number for PS/PCL. If this is blank then you don't have printer drivers installed on the copier. You will need to get a technician to come out and upgrade the firmware on the machine.

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 1200 prints pdf documents slow

pdf documents are historically slow, they usually depend on how they are created and how many attachments or upgrades have been added to the document. this accounts for some of the variations of speed the documents are printed.

Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?

Sounds like you cover all the bases. I just wonder if you reset the unit via the service mode?
resetting the printer should have cleared the memory.

Hold down select and return while powering on machine, hold until self test comes up on display then press go, this will get you into service mode.

Run the memory diagnostics.

Scan processing slow


Try making sure there is no power filter on the network line, and that the network line has a straight shot to the router without going through any other 5 port switches or anything. normally when the scans are slow, and the prints are slow, it's a cabling issue.

when you're ready to replace that old thing request a quote from Skelton!

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer on a wireless network . You need to do the following -
1. Open the printer\'s menu and enable the Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP\'s are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer\'s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP\'s printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printer prints correctly.
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer\'s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Printer will not communicate with the computer


1. Walk over to the printer and print a test page directly. The procedure for printing a test page will vary from model to model, so you may need to consult the user guide that came with your printer. For most network printers, you can print a test page by navigating the "Information" menu on the control panel and choosing "Print Configuration" from the menu. For many desktop printers, you can print a test page by holding the power button until the page begins to print. If you can print a test page from the printer, but not from the computer, you know there is a communication problem between the printer and the PC.


2. Remove the printer cable from the back of your printer and the back of your computer. After the cable has been removed, carefully put the cable back into place, making sure that the printer cable is tight. If your printer uses a parallel cable, be sure that it is fully seated on the back of the printer and on the computer. If you are using a USB cable for your printer, be sure that the tab is fully seated in the computer, and that the square end of the cable is firmly connected to the printer.


3. Power down the printer, the restart your computer. Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu. Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon, locate your printer, right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the menu. Click on the "Print Test Page" button to send a test page to your printer.


4. Look at the network card on your network printer to see if there is good communication between the printer and the network. You should see a flashing green light on the network card. If there is no light--or if the light is amber or red--the communication is not happening. To test the network communication, remove the network cable from both the network cable and the network port on the wall, then reseat the cable and check the communication again. If the problem remains, you will need to remove and replace the printer's network card.

Slow printing hp laserjet 2320 mfp


I have just come up against this issue my self, 4 x CM2320's installed on 150 PC's. After a lot of head scratching I dug out wire shark and did some network analysing as I thought it was a network issue. Turns out it sort of was, the HP software installs a custom network print port, this print port scans the network to see if the printer has changed its IP address BEFORE it tries to spool...!! The solution is to create a new network port and put the printer on that. Originally it took well over 90 seconds to print a test page, once the port was changed it dropped to 2...!!!! All PC's at this client were win XP so here's how to do it on an XP machine... Please note the printer should be on a static IP address!!!:

Start > Printers And Faxes > Right Click on the CM2320 PCL 6 printer > Properties > Ports >

If you scroll down to find the printer in the ports list you should find it has installed on a port called 'HP Colour LaserJet' or something similar.

Add Port > Select 'HP Standard TCP/IP Port' > New Port > Next > Type in the printers IP address ie 192.168.0.202 (Don't tick always print to this device) > Next > Standard - Dropdown - Hewlett Packard Jetdirect > Next > Finish.

The new port will now be in the ports list, click the tick box next to it > Apply > OK. Now try and print a test page, it should only take a second or two...!!!

Ricoh Aficio 1027 network connection problem with vista x86


It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.

Our Ricoh MP 171 devices go offline after one


have you tried doing a local connect using a crossover cable to the printer to see if it is the printer or the 2k3 server?
I have seen this issue when terminal services are enabled on the server.
if when you connect locally to the device using x-over it still does it it may need to have the nib firmware updated, however if it doesnt I would run a packet sniffer on the network jack that the device is plugged into and check to make sure that the port is good and transmitting and receiving all packets check the network cable and replace that and if all else fails try the device on a different network port.

Ricoh Aficio CL7000


If you have it connected by a CAT5 network wire, then the answer is no.

if you are using a usb 1.1 port on your computer to print to it, then that port is a slow port. I would recommend getting a faster 2.0 usb adaptor and using that port. It will print a little faster.
