By admin news

Like a GPS, wouldn’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, Condé 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:

  1. Control Panel
  2. Printers and faxes or Devices
  3. Right click; then left click on Printing Preferences
  4. Printer Configuration

    Reconnecting the Ricoh using the port settings

    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:

    1. Spool Format and RAW setting
    2. Print As Bitmap

    Upgrade firmware from the Conde Wab Page:

    Checking printer firmware on you Condé Dye-Sublimation System:

    • Printing preferences then click “About” from the setup tab to see the firmware version.

    Or...

    Go to "System" from the printer display:

    1. Hold the up and down arrows for 10 seconds then press enter.
    2. Arrow down until you see "System" and press enter.
    3. Arrow down until you see "System Version", press enter.
