Our Gestetner A045, with RW-240WP is giving an error when printing from the network : ''SNMP Server is down; plotter settings may be wrong; make sure all software is running properly''. This just started happening recently and there have not been any changes to the host computer running the plotter. Any suggestions?

    The SNMP error is due to firewall restrictions or perhaps a new user account is being used on the PLOTBASE PC? SNMP is a service run under the admin account on the PLOTBASE server PC, so if you go to computer services and properties of the snmp service, make sure it is active

Looking for some one to work on a gestetner a045 in louisville ky

Your Gestetner A045 is made by Ricoh. I will be a lot easier finding a Ricoh dealer than a Gestetner one. Here are the equivalent models for your machine. That is, any dealer listing that they service Ricoh, Savin, Lanier or Gestetner should be able to service it.
Your machine is the same as:
Ricoh Aficio 240W
Savin 2400WD
Lanier LW310
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Any RW-240 drivers available for Windows 7?

I know it is a bit late but my company had the same problem just a few weeks ago and I figured out a work around that might help.

First of all, we have a computer dedicated to our Savin 2400 that still runs XP. I found this

which allows you to set up a dropbox and has a .vbs script that is set to auto print.

From there it was easy, just go out and download a pdf image writer like this one

or any other document writer and set the default folder it saves to in the dropbox print queue. This will let you hit print, select your document writer (which you can rename to "ricoh") and print away!

Help my A045 Gestetner will not load paper after several short beeps

If you are changing a paper roll, make sure you can advance the paper through the "throat" using the green knob and then manually trim it. If you are loading paper in the cassette tray, make sure you adjust the green sizing guides to match the paper dimension (8.5x11", 11x17), etc.

In scanplot base software in A045 machine gives error when you run error is below You donot have memory access. Notice you have the instructions in user manual(RW-240 scanplot setting)? but i have checked...

This requirement and solution are in the Plotbase manual, not the copier manual. See pp. 29-30 Setting for RW-240 ScanTool.
1. Start - Control Panel - Administrative Tools
2. Local Security Policy
3. Local Admin Policies
4. User Right Assignments
5. Lock Pages in Memory - Local Security Setting
4. Add User or Group, then Advanced
5. Add or Find Now - select users (all)
6. OK
7. close Local Security Setting windows
