    Just curious why there's no Lanier

    It has been quite some time since Lanier became an official member of the Ricoh family of machines, just curious why that hasn't been incorporated into the Ricoh, Savin and Gestetner listing.
    Also, the Gestetner brand got closed down for good by Ricoh a couple of years ago, but I'm sure there's enough of them still around that it probably wouldn't hurt to keep that in the listing.
    Thanks!

    Hello hello hello hello Echo echo echo echo

    Re: Just curious why there's no Lanier

    I haven't seen a Lanier since they were Mita re-badges. You're hearing those crickets 'cause there just isn't much of a Lanier presence anymore (if there ever was). =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I put a Lanier badge on an existing Ricoh once and it never worked again!!!

    As to why the Lanier name does not appear in the forum list along with the rest of the Ricoh Family Group, that should be asked of the Copytechnet webmaster.

    As for Gestetner, Ricoh did not shutdown Gestetner a couple of years ago. They shutdown Gestetner-USA. At the same time they also shutdown Lanier Worldwide. Lanier was a better known name in the US and Gestetner was much better known in Europe. All Gestetner dealers who wished to stay with Ricoh became Lanier dealers. They could still sell under the Gestetner name for a while in order for them to transition existing customers.

    Good explanation, thanks.
    Still, this is called "Site Feedback & Questions", that would seem to be the most appropriate place to post a question like this.
    But as I've been working on Laniers since Harris totally took over 3M copiers, I suppose my take might be a little off.
