    Ricoh MP C300 Color print vs. copy of same

    I have a customer (a church) that has a MP C300. When they do their bulletins the original which they print from their Mac computer and use as an original does not match a copy of the same. Its not even close. Purples look blue, yellows seem overpowering, etc. Its not like you might expect like a copy being slightly off, but rather unacceptable different. All PCDUs were at 60k. I replaces them all with new Ricoh PCU and Dev. units. It made no difference. Also I have done ACC and line adjustment numerous times. Any ideas? Thanks. Also of note, on the bulletins there are photos that need to be of a good quality.

    I don't know if a Mac supports print to document server but if it does, have them try using it.

    I don't know about Mac either. But just to let you know what I am up against. She is using a Mac laptop, a Word document and she can't figure out how to print a 2 sided document from Word. But that is all another matter. LOL.

    If it is an older version on Word, it can't. They used to force you to buy Publisher in order to do two sided and booklets. If they can convert to a pdf it might be able to duplex.

    You're never going to get a copy to look as good as a print so you should likely focus on finding a way for them to print the job instead of copy.

    What version of Office are they using?

    Did you clean the slit glasses and the optics before running ACC?

    check the driver settings and if it's set to Vector change it to Raster... or vice versa...if it's set to Raster change it to Vector

    Does the copy of a familar test chart do also look bad or worse compared to other IMC300's?

    I know that some printed/rastered stuff can look bad if you copy it band I never understood why certain kinds are too dumb to realize it's better just to print what they need in the required quantity. If the reason is a limited acces to a computer they could use the document server so other users would still be able to get their "copies" on demand but they will have in "master quality".
