    spc842/xante enpress questions

    have a customer that bought a xante en press envelope printer and i've heard that i can change, through service mode, the toner that it requires. i'm thinking that the xante is a ricoh spc842dn rebadged and hope to be able to source and use the ricoh toner and drums rather than the xante. i've sourced chips to turn oki cartridges into the intoprint version for years but cannot find the chips for the xante yet. also need a service manual or procedure to get to SP mode to see if i can program the xante to take ricoh toners. thanks--tuey

    Looking at images for both on brochures, it does appear to be the same machine. They have a Smart Operation Panel (SOP) so entering SP mode should be the same as any other SOP model. As for changing what toner it requires through SP, that might be a feature of Xante and you would need the Xante service manual.

    yep, that was my understanding also. thought maybe if i could get into sp mode , maybe similar for both models, that i might find the toner select. tuey

    Did you ever find a solution for this. I have a customer that has the Ricoh SP c820dn version. Do you think SP 5051 would do the trick?

    I wonder if I installed the RFID Board from a Ricoh SPC820 if that would make it see Ricoh toner? Otherwise, it must be a factory setting because I can't find anything else in the manual where I could change it. Just spit-balling here.

    Re: spc842/xante enpress questions

    i like the way you think hadster, i would bet that would work. i found a guy that sold me a few sets of the xante toners very cheap so i'm ok for a while. if memory serves me correctly the ricoh toner was near the price of the xante ,if not higher, hafta go back a look them up again. was at virginia tech in may- and again last may for my nephews graduations. fun fun fun, made me feel like i was in college again. i'll do just about anything to make more money in toner sales but alot of people in our business are just scared. tuey

    This poor guy is paying $170(xante) each for color! I can get him down to $100 with Ricoh. If he wants me to try the mod I'll let you know how it turns out.
