Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have a Konica Minolta C450 copier with FS-603 booklet maker. The problem I'm having is that when making booklets the staples are not centered down the middle of the fold they are more like stapling on the far left side and visible on top of the booklets. Also, when the booklets are being folded they're not quite folding evenly down the middle. How do I fix these problems.

    Hi Daniel,
    After several replies to my question, I can't believe someone FINALLY gave me the right answer. I cannot thank you enough. I followed your instructions and now my booklets are stapling and folding in the correct position. You're the BEST! Gail

Hi


You can only adjust the folding postion and stapling position by only +/- 7 mm. Please follow the procedure for adjusting staple location and folding location--

Adjustment of the stapling position
• The stapling position is adjusted by aligning the stapling position to the folding position.
• This adjustment is made in the Service Mode of the main unit. Since the adjustment is made in increments of 1 mm, this adjustment is useful for eliminating a displacement of 1mm or more.
• For the effective adjustment of a minimal displacement smaller than 1 mm, refer to “Board switch”.
Adjustable range: - 7 to + 7 mm (Increment: 1 mm)

Adjustment procedure
1. Set A3 or 11 x 17 to the Feed Tray.
2. Touch these keys in this order: “Fold & Staple” → “OK.”
3. Set five sheets of A3 or 11 x 17 original (blank paper acceptable) in the Original Tray.
• These five sheets are used for adjustment to minimize variation.
4. Press the “Start” Key.
5. Set the mode to the Service Mode.
For details of how to display the Service Mode screen, see the Adjustment/Setting of the main unit service manual.
6. Touch “Finisher”.
7. Touch “Center-Staple Position Adj.”
8. Renew the center folding of the finished copies.
Take the top surface of the finished copies as “A”, and the under surface as “B.”
9. Check the deviation of the stapling position from the newly folded position.
NOTE-- In checking the deviation, refer not to the folded position by the Finisher but to the newly folded position.
10. Press the “Clear” Key.
11. Adjust with the +/- Keys. When the stapling position is shifted to the direction A: Adjust the value to the - side. When the stapling position is shifted to the direction B: Adjust the value to the + side.
12. Touch “END.”
13. Make the copy and check again.
For activating the service mode---
Procedure
1. Press the Utility/Counter key.
2. Touch “Details” on “Meter Count” display.
3. Press the following keys in this order.
Stop → 0 → 0 → Stop → 0 → 1
NOTES
• When selecting “CE Authentication” under “Enhanced Securiy” available from
Service Mode, authentication by CE password is necessary.
Enter the 8 digits CE password, and touch “OK” key.
(The initial setting for CE password is “92729272.”)
• If a wrong CE password is entered, re-enter the right password. The machine will
not enter Service Mode unless the CE password is entered correctly. To return to
the Basic screen, turn Main Power Switch OFF, and ON again.
• The service code entered is displayed as “.”
4. The Service Mode menu will appear.

Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

    Hi,



    Thanks for the link but I already know how to create the booklets on my KM c450 copier with FS-603 finisher. The problem I'm having is that it's not saddle stitches down the middle of the booklet. And, the booklets are not folding down the middle of the page. I realize that I may need a technician to make some readjustments on the equipment. What I really want to know is can the FS-603 saddle stitch evenly down the middle of a booklet and can a booklet be folded evenly down the middle. Thank you.
