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 Email on an Olivetti Colour MFD

Please find below a quick walk through of setting up scanning on an Olivetti colour MFD such as an MF250 though to the latest range of colour MFD’s. The screen may looking slightly different on the different ranges but the information required is the same.

You will need to login as an Administrator through the web terminal of the machine, this can be achieved by putting the IP address of the machine in the address bar of your web browser.

Next enter your email server details, make sure to enter an email address for the machine to use. Enter any authentication details to allow it to connect to your email server, this might not be needed, if it won’t connect try turning this off.

You may also need to enter an email address for the Administrator before the machine will work as well. This can be done by going to the maintenance tab on the web interface (still in the admin screen) see below.

Once all this information has been entered then log out of the Admin screen, it is important to do this as the machine will be locked until you have logged out and the users won’t be able to use it.

Next set up some email addresses in your address book, you can do this from the web page as well but you don’t have to be logged in as the Admin. If you go to Store Address, New Registration

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 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.

For more information on the new range of A3 colour multifunction devices please visit Elmdale Maintenance
