Printing Card/Thick Paper As a Booklet and Folded On An Olivetti MF752Plus MFD

This will work on any Olivetti or Konica Minolta based colour MFD that has a booklet folding unit in the Finisher. These are Instructions for printing on to a Card/Thick cover and  getting it folded and NOT having the print rub off or smear. This will work if you just want to do a 4 page (1 sheet of thick paper) Booklet or add a thick cover to booklet. It is important to only tell the machine it has thick paper in the machine and not select thick in the print driver.

Please see below on how to print on to thick paper/card and fold etc.

  1. Log in to machine and select copy screen
  2. Place card in bypass, a window should pop up on the display.
  3. Select thick 1 or thick 2 – do not select thick 3 as this will not work with these settings.
  4. From your computer, go to print and select printer properties

  1. Under Basic, change Paper Tray to Tray 1 – you won’t be using this if it is a 4 page booklet.

  1. Next go to Layout and select Booklet under Print Type.

  1. Next go to Finish and select Center Staple & Fold or Half Fold, both will work

  1. Next go to Cover Mode, turn on Front Cover, select Print and select Bypass Tray as the source.

  1. Next Click OK then click print

It should then print out from the bypass tray and the print should not get smeared.

Setting Up Scan To Folder (SMB) on Olivetti MF222Plus Colour MFD

Setting up scanning to a folder is quite a straight forward process on an Olivetti MF222Plus.

First thing you need to do is create a folder on your computer or server. Then share it, the easiest way to share a folder in windows is to right click on the folder then select properties.

folder properties

 

Next select sharing and go to  advanced sharing (1) then check the box to share the folder (2) you can change the share name if need be, next set the permissions of the folder you are sharing (3)

 

share

 

Set the folder permissions to specific people or set to everyone full control, this allows the machine to deliver the scanned doc in to the folder. If it isn’t shared then the machine can not scan back to the computer.

 

permissions

 

The next thing you will need to do is get the hostname of the computer you are scanning back to, this is quite straight forward to do, you can obtain it by first holding down the windows key on your keyboard then hitting the R on your keyboard.

 

run command

 

This will bring up the run box, next type cmd and click ok to bring up the windows command prompt. Then type hostname in the command prompt window and press enter on your keyboard, you will then see the hostname of your computer. As you can see in the example below it is PC9.

 

cmd prompt

 

Once we have the hostname and a folder set up the next step is to open up the web interface of the Olivetti MF222Plus. This is done by typing http://IPADDRESSOFTHEMACHINE (i.e. 192.168.1.150) in the address bar of your web browser.

(You can find out the IP address of your machine either from the port settings on your print driver or by printing out the configuration page at the machine in user settings.)

Next go to the Store Address tab of the MFD’s web page.

 

store address

 

Then click on New Registration in the Address Book List.

 

new registration

 

Next fill in the fields like below,

 

address book entry

1. The name that will be displayed on the machines display

2. Check the main box and the area of the address book that it will reside.

3. Check the box for the hostname.

4. Add the hostname (e.g. PC9) that you got from the command prompt, then the share name of the folder you set up, then a valid windows user name and password that has access to the computer you are scanning back to.

5. Then click OK to store the details.

You should get the message below if it has been set up on the machine.

You can set up more scan folders by clicking Continue Registration or just click return or close the web browser.

address book complete

 

You should now be able to scan back to your PC or server, if it fails for any reason and you require assistance then contact Elmdale Maintenance on 0118 982 1445.

How To Import An Address Book In To An Olivetti MFP Using Data Administrator

Importing Addresses In To An Olivetti MF282plus or Similar Machine Via Data Administrator

In a different post I went through exporting the address book from an Olivetti colour MFP, now we want to import the same address book in to another machine. You can also use this same method to import addresses from a spreadsheet as long as you save it as a Tab delimited text file. I will go in to that in a different post, first we will import the addresses created from another similar device such as a Konica Minolta Colour Bizhub or Olivetti Colour MFP.

Before we start to import the address book that we exported in our previous post we may need to edit the text file to add the password for the SMB addresses as Data Administrator doesn’t save them when you export them.

If you open up Microsoft Excel or a similar spreadsheet application, then open the address book file. You will need to select all files to be able to do this. Then select Tab delimited, click next 2 more times.

choose delimiter type

Next find the column labelled SMB:Password and add the password next to any SMB addresses, once you have done this you can save and exit.

type in smb password

Now we have edited the text file we can import the data in to the machine via Data Administrator.

First you will need to connect to the device like in previous posts, then you need to expand the tree on the left hand side for the address book.

address book data admin

Next select File, import, import each data from the file.

import each data from the file

Browse through to the file you need, it should then ask you to choose what type of addresses you want to import, in this case I am doing Email & SMB.

select address type

Click Next then make sure that Tab Delimited is checked and click Next again.

Then click next until you get to the section where it asks you to match the fields on the right hand side with the columns on the left hand side. You will need to scroll through each column and match the correct fields, see below.

select columns

match up columns

Once you have matched the columns up with the fields click next. On the next screen of the wizard you will need to highlight all the adresses and click on select, make sure you don’t include the column headers as you won’t want to export that to your machines address book.

select addresses

Next click Import and the addresses will appear in Data Administrator, you will then need to highlight all the addresses and click edit on the right hand side. This so that we can select Edit Search Key and check the box marked Main. If we don’t do this the addresses will not appear on the Favourites tab on the front screen of the machine when you select scan.

edit search key

main column populated

The next step is to click export to the device and then click write, this will then push the data on to the MFP.

export to device

Once you have written the data to the machine It should look like this.

Olivetti Colour Print Driver Settings

These are our Standard Print Driver Settings for the Olivetti range when we install a machine at a client. They cover most of the current range and each driver has many of the same features and the settings are in the same place but may just be labelled differently. If you get stuck the contact us and we will try to fill in the gaps.

1. Turn off Auto in “Obtain Settings” this is under the Configuration tab in the printer properties. This is important to do as the driver will constantly query the printer if it isn’t turned off and will cause a delay when the user wants to make any changes to print settings.

Obtain Settings

2. Next we turn off “My Tab” this is under the settings tab, click the box that says “My Tab Settings” then un check the radio button that says “Display My Tab”

My Tab Settings

3. Next go to “Advanced” then “Printing Defaults” change the quality from Auto Colour to Grayscale, unless you want everything to print as colour then leave this setting alone. If this is a driver that is held on a server and shared out to clients you will have to repeat this setting under the “General” tab in “Printing Preferences” otherwise when the driver is loaded on the client computer the setting will not be transferred across correctly.

Quality Settings

4. Under the same 2 tabs in the properties of the driver you will need to alter the duplex setting if you do not want all your prints to come out 2 sided. If you do want everything 2 sided then again you can leave this setting.

Duplex Settings
