    Re: Riso recommendation GR3750/RZ970e

    go with the RZ970e... the GR3750 has been obsolete for a very long time now and you will not be able to get new parts for it. It will be easier to diy maintenance but I think as far as spare parts go...

    [Misc] Re: Using Riso Z ink in V8000

    Pretty sure it's all soy based now, if you're getting new / fresh GR ink anyways, they stopped making the non soy, oil based ink a long time ago?

  4. Re: GR 3750 "install ink cartridge" error with every drum I put in

    The ink might be too old and unable to pump into the drum, or the drum may be clogged from old ink. Is there a date code on the tubes of ink? No date code, then it is pre 2007 which is far too old. I...

    Re: RZ220 - Feeding long sheets of paper in?

    If the RZ220 has interval print mode than it would be possible... but I think only some of the RZ machines have this mode.

    Re: Wrinkling masters gr 3750

    It might not work for you, but I used to have a gr3770 with this same problem. The only way I could figure to get around it was to manually apply pressure to the flanges as the master roll was...

    Re: Which drums are compatible?

    You can see which drums are compatible by part # which is the S-# listed beside the model types. For example, under A3 machines you can see that all GR and FR machines use S-806 drums.

    You can hope to find it from someone selling surplus or second hand (in which case make sure to confirm the age of the ink, as Riso ink is expired after 2 or 3 years.) Besides that, your best bet is...
  16. Re: MZ 790/990 Drum Problem - T96-569 & D02-532

    Problem solved! For some reason the Drum Code (TM 1210) and Ink Category (TM 1215) were set to 0 'Not Specified' I just copied the values for those 2 inputs from another working drum I have. After...
  17. Re: Risograph GR3770 Master not sticking to drum et al

    If the drum was properly inked up when you got it, and inked up when you put the new ink in for the first time but then started to dry up after that, it could be an issue with the ink you put in it. ...

  21. [Misc] Re: Risograph ink shelf life? How long is it viable?

    OEM Riso ink is good for 2 years usually, I'm not sure about fastinks and other non oem inks... You can tell if it's gone bad if it's beginning to separate.
  22. Re: Riso MZ770A. Opinions on reliability compared with GR3770 pls.

    The 770 prints at a lower resolution than the GR 3770, but if it's in good shape I would imagine that it will be significantly smoother and easier to work with than the GR. There is over 10 years...
