    Ultimately its to create a gap to be free from the old 9 to 5 usual grind. We save these companies a heap of cash. We basically rely heavily on our ability to cut corners and keep these rust buckets up and running. Almost 3 years later we are game to take on machines no other company wants to touch. Just recently took on 13 Pro 1100 machines that was badly neglected by the original installers. Must be the worst condition I have seen any machines in. Now on week 3 and countless rags later the customer can not believe that we where able to get the lot of them running and running strong. We see issues on these machines I hope no one have to encounter if they do regular maintenance.

    Then we get the opportunity to sneak in good used machines with relatively low mileage to replace the machines that has done way more than ever expected. We get machines with between 3 to 8 million on the clock and keep these in the condition we are happy with. Customers are happy they don't need to go the route of having to take binding leases out on new machines. Not lying it can be demanding. 2 hour response time and 7 days a week from 8 to 8 on call. If every thing runs fishing and guitar is a good way of passing time. After the firsts 2 weeks there was not a single call for 4 days straight on this new account! Well until this morning when all hell broke loose and 5 machines was reported at the same time, 5 or so hours of solid graft between 2 of us and all was well again.


    How awesome are these production Konica Minolta machines! Nothing like them. The harder they run the happier they are. Some are touching 1 million prints per month.

    Re: Pro 951 vs Pro 1100

    I've only seen this once on a 6120. Shortly after a developer change, the C2803 popped up. The enduser showed me a bunch of gritty prints in the center.

    The mylar under the mag roller was deformed, scooping developer off the mag roller, and dumping it into the IDC sensor. Naturally, I wasn't carrying around a developing unit under my arm, so I remover the small roller below the mag roller. From there you can see the guide mylar. I used a flat screwdriver to reform the mylar down and away from the mag roller. Once re-assembled, I collected as much of the spilled developer as possible and poured it back into the developing unit. It hasn't re-occurred since.

    It's possible that I did something during the developer change ... but I learned a long time ago to only turn the developing roller down. It's an unpleasant job to get the mylar back in position if it flips.

    If Auto Max Density Adjustment fails: Error1 after cleaning, I'd replace it. =^..^=
    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.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Have had it where it will empty the entire dev tank in no time. Found that it was the way i was handling the dev tank that pressed against the bottom edge of tank that deformed the mylar. I only get the C2803 when the dev is slightly over life, auto gama adjustment also fails. Spiking the dev with some toner and reinitialize only works for a couple of thousand prints.
    Whatever

    I am an in house tech for the school district here and I approve of this statement. So having both 951's and 1100's for teachers to abuse, I still prefer the 951.

    Had that happen on a 1051 from mishandling. I managed to "reform" the bottom plate just enough to correct the dumping.
