How to set up colours after they go out of sync on an Olivetti colour MFD

From time to time the colours on most Olivetti colour MFDs will wander and go darker or richer, if this happens it is a simple process to get the machine to set itself back up again. You can print out Gradation sheets and the machine will read them from the glass and adjust itself back to the correct levels.

Below I’ve detailed how to set your machines colours back up. This will work for older machines as well with the current range like the MF452 etc.

On older machines press the button marked Utility/Counter, on newer machines press the Menu button and then select Utility on the screen.

Next select Administrator Settings, enter the password 12345678 then select OK

Next select System Settings, then Expert Adjustment, then Gradation Adjustment.

The screen should show Image Stabilization Only and the Print button will be lit up blue, press the print key to allow the machine to read its levels and stabalize ready for the adjustments in the next step.

Once it has finished stabilizing the print & copy buttons should be available, select print then choose A3 if you have this type of paper in the machine and press start to print off the Gradation Sheet for measuring. The machine will tell you which way to place the sheet on the copy board glass, don’t worry if you haven’t got A3 paper in the machine, you can choose A4 and it will print 2 sheets for measuring instead.

Next place the sheet(s) on the copyboard glass like a normal photocopy, close the lid then press the print key to start the measurement process. When it has finished it will go back to the screen before. Select Print again and repeat the process 2 more times. Then repeat the same process for the copy setting.

Once you have read the patterns 3 times for the print & copy settings then you are done! You can press close until you get back to the normal copy screen.

Your machine should now be back to normal, if you need any more info or the machine still isn’t producing the colour you normally expect then call Elmdale Maintenance on 01189821444.

How To Register An Olivetti Colour MFP In Data Administrator

Data Administrator is a software package for use with Olivetti and Konica Minolta colour MFPs. It is mainly used for managing Account track details and the address book for scanning/faxing. But you can also use it for other network admin tasks such as gathering meter readings.

The way you would add a device is by opening up Data Administrator then clicking on the option called “Registration of Device”.

You will then use the “Search and Register” option to search the network for any compatible MFPs, you can add multiple machines if you need to. In this example I will add 1 machine and register it.

Once the software has found any machines you need highlight them in blue and click select, then ok.

Olivetti Announces New Plus Range of A3 Colour MFPs

Olivetti has just updated its colour range of MFPs, please see the press release by Olivetti below:

On the PLUS side, Olivetti’s range of A3 colour MFPs is now even better. 

Olivetti is delighted to announce the availability of 3 new A3 full colour MFPs to its range – the
22ppm d-Color MF222PLUS, 36ppm d-Color MF362PLUS and the 45ppm d-Color MF552PLUS.

These 3 models are virtually identical to their predecessors but feature some changes that add to productivity and greatly reduce energy consumption. One of the most important improvements has occurred at the very heart of the machines. Thanks to new SoC (Software on a Chip) technology fewer components, than ever before, ‘stay awake’ when the machines are in Sleep Mode, reducing the total energy consumption to less than 1 Watt. The ErP is also less than 0.2 Watt, one of the lowest on the market. However, the warm-up time is still less than 22 seconds.

Olivetti d-Color MF362 PLUS

The previous range’s Licence Kit, or i-Options, has always allowed the scan to searchable PDF and PowerPoint but the PLUS series provides additional creativity by scanning to searchable Word and Excel documents making most documents universally accessible and day-to-day work easy to manage.

The touch panel has now been improved to allow data on the screen to be enlarged and moved in the same way as Smart phones and Touch Tablet PCs operate, using Flick and Drag technology;  while, for those who operate within a ThinPrint environment for reducing the size of network traffic, the new PLUS series supports this facility.
