    Re: MX-3610 VS MX-3640 fuser

    If I remember correctly, the 10 series fuser has green felt on the handles. The 40 series fuser uses black felt.

    Re: What got you into the copier game?

    At one of my first copier tech jobs, there was a running joke about how guys got into repairing copiers. They said, during high school they give you a test to see what your skills are, and that...

    Re: Any old old school copier techs here?

    I started in the business in 1994, working for a Lanier dealer. There were still a lot of Harris/3M machines out there at the time. A few years later I moved to a Toshiba Dealer, which was great...

    Re: Labor Cost for IPF's

    We charge the same labor rate as any other machine if it is not under a maintenance contract. If it is under contract, we charge a flat fee instead of the usual charge per meter click.

    Re: ADI to SATA

    I haven't touched a Toshiba in a couple years, but as I remember, you can change a SATA machine to an ADI machine, but not the other way.

    The Main Charge Unit does not get in the way of removing the Drum, but in the process of removing the Drum, there will always be toner spilled into the Main Charge Unit. Also, if you are replacing...

    Re: Toshiba e4555c IP address issue

    Sounds like maybe an IP address conflict. If another device on the network takes the same address, it will set the address in the Toshiba to all 0's. When this happens, unplug the network cable...

    Re: Whos Next-Another company going away

    I started in the industry in the mid 90's, and there has been a LOT of merging and buyouts since then. Even though I thought Oki's toner based print engines were complete crap, it is sad to see them...

    Re: AR-M355, squeaking...

    Every time I heard squeaking from these machines, it was in the exit/turnover section above the fuser. It's not fun to remove, and you have to remove it to get to the bushings that are squeaking. ...

    You are so right Spanky! I did not read that one close enough. I thought it would resize the document to the paper size available. Nope, it takes all 12x18 and 11x17 print jobs and converts them...

  17. 11x17 pdf documents not printing correctly on MX-5071

    This one has me baffled. It is at a roofing contractor, so they print a lot of 11x17 size drawings.
    Printing 11x17 pdf drawings to the MX-5071 causes a popup on the control panel asking to load A3...
