    Ricoh MPC4502 fixing films.....

    Hi,
    have any of you out there sourced a good aftermarket fixing film/sleeve for the MPC4502/5502 copiers. I have fitted some that work OK, but give a "feathering" effect on the solids. They are OK if you only print text but if the user prints colour the solids are not good enough. I guess some would say just fit an original, but in the UK Ricoh charge silly money for a part that almost never makes life, so re filming a unit (as is possible with most other brands) would be a good alternative.

    Thanks
    Steve

    They do make life if you replace the stripper plate and the pressure roller at the same time.

    Computers are serious tools, Michael!

    Ricoh D1444033, Sleeve Fusing Unit,

    i have seen just the sleeve's for sale on the likes of ebay but haven't used any
    Iam sure there are a few bulletins about the 02 fuser's
    They may help
    iam sure someone may be able to recommend a non original fuser sleeve supplier

    The latest fuser sleeves do last PM life, in fact they now go beyond life.

    Let us eat, drink, and be merry, because tomorrow we may die!

    The fixing film assembly(D1444272)is not expensive and less hassle than trying to replace the film. They will go to life and beyond.
    Replace the LFR at the same time too.

    Hi there!
    They changed the sleeveroller-assy 3 or 4 times, since then all our fuser are running good. In the shop we have spare-units, they allways get the sleeve, 2 THīs & the pressureroller. The ends of the stripperplate (if itīs not worn out) as marked with the red arrow is bent 1,5 - 2 mm down. Then they stay clean (if customer use good paper!!!) and jamming is no problem.
