Like a GPS, wouldnâ€™t it be nice to map the shortest route to avoid or quickly resolve an issue on your Ricoh Sublimation System/s? Or, just know ways to fine tune your sublimation system for maximum quality and performance? Well, Conde has found ways to eliminate errors, fine tune and perfect settings and keep your printer updated with the latest firmware for your Conde sublimation printer driver. We believe you will find these tips beneficial.
Sheet-Dry Print Delay
Increasing the delay time would help prevent sublimation paper from coming out of the printer before the ink is dry enough to prevent smearing or ink build up on you rollers.
To make an adjustment go to:
- Control Panel
- Printers and faxes or Devices
- Right click; then left click on Printing Preferences
- Printer Configuration

If you have received a replacement printer and want to install the driver with the previous driver configurations you used with the replaced printer go to the port settings and select that port from properties in the printer folder.
USB connections to the back of the towers
By connecting USB cable directly to the back of the PC rather than the front ports or hub you will reduce possible data issues and maximize print quality.
Improve output by changing a couple of settings:
- Spool Format and RAW setting
- Print As Bitmap
Upgrade firmware from the Conde Wab Page:
