    What printer driver are you using?It seems some of the characters are not recognized correctly by the printer driver.

    Drop the PCL 6 driver as fast as you can: it's known to be buggy and unreliable. PCL 5 is a much better choice, or if the machine has PostScript use the PostScript driver.

    Sure, go ahead and try the RPCS. If it works, your good to go, although I think Ricoh may be dropping the RPCS driver.

    I think they already have.
    The only driver I install these days is the 5c/e. I dont even bother with the pcl6.


    You never realize how cheap a professional is until after you let an amateur do it.
