Question about Ricoh FAX3900L Plain Paper Laser

2 Answers

I have a GBC Combind C450e that has a problem. The normal pack of about 20 pages cannot be inserted in the punch channel. Only one or two pages can go in. It looks like one or more of the punches do not completely retract and catch the edge of a pack of paper preventing its insertion. I can't seem to disassemble it to see if there is anything obvious. The machine is less than a year old but I really don't have time to send it in for repair.

Hi you should check to make sure nothing is stuck up inside of your GBC combind,and make sure there is no paper jam. If this do not solve the problem this mean some of the punch are having problems.

I want to COMBIND MY together with Don,t want to LOOSE anything/

Hi Pam
Decide which email you want as your main one, ie "8" or "508" and then log in via your web browser to the other one. Click on the cogwheel on the top RHS of the page and then click settings. Of the tabs on the settings page, click on "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" and the first optional setting here is "Add a forwarding address". Click on this and enter your other address (not the one you are logged into!!)
Then click next and proceed, and you will be sent a link to the forwarding address to verify that it is yours. Follow the link and agree it, and from then on you only need to go onto the address the link went to as all emails from the other address will be forwarded to it.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Bindmate GBC has paper stuck

Pull out the papers slowly one by one starting from the page on top. They'll probably rip but it's the only way I've found to get them out (I've tried unscrewing the covers but the thing doesn't pop out). For the next usage only punch a max of 4 pages.

Get sound with headset but not in speaker

One problem is if somebody has put a plug into the INSERT jacks on the back. If signalls have been driven into these that are intended to be used for external effects, an op amp can be blown and it is a pain to replace. Try plugging a se of headphones into each and see if you can hear a signal. You will only hear it in the LEFT headphone and this is normal. Make sure ALL the channels have the L/R switches punched down as these send each cahnnel into the MAIN mixing bus.

CombBind C450e binding machine. How did I get the top off? A piece fell off inside and I cannot get the top off.

the top is connected with 7 star shaped screws look in the back of the machine you will see the exact shape. in the back there are 3 screws then there are 2 more screws on every side under the dark grey lable on is located on the very bottom (lift the lable you will find it) to find the other 2 slide your finger on the grey lable you will feel a small round hole on the right side it is about a cm under the **** where the papers get punched and on the left side it is about 3 - 4 inches under that ****. Good luck

How do I open up the binding machine to see what's going on?

often the stickers will be concealing screws under them
move a screw driver over the stickers and see if it pushes in anywhere and if so make a hole there :-)

Are we able to get the Binding machine blades sharpened. We have an Ibico, Ibimatic-No 315468. Have had for about 5 years. Thanks

This product is now manufactured by GBC (General Binding Corp, part of Acco) and was replaced by the CombBind C150 - just FYI. The lower-end machines such as this seem to run in the range of $200 USD.

I have never heard of sharpening these "blades", as they are actually punches, and there are likely some 20 small, individual "blades" that are part of the system. You might check with a local dealer or office supply partner, to see if they know of anyone who could or would perform the service and what they might charge for it. I believe that if you could find someone to do it, it would cost more than it would to simply replace the machine. There does not appear to be a way to replace the punch mechanism (die / strip usually) in these models.

An example of a machine with interchangeable dies is located at:
Obviously, this is a much higher-level (expensive) machine than the one you have here. But this is an example of the interchange concept, and associated costs.

So, this is a rather long way of saying, and trying to explain why I recommend that, you check with a local dealer perhaps, but plan to replace the machine. If it lasted you this long, the same level of machine should last just as well, and $40 US a year isn't too bad!

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
