There are a number of printers that don't get along well with ID. If updating the driver (are you using the postscript driver) doesn't do it, the usual workaround is to export to PDF and print that instead.
I've tried exporting it to PDF and printing, but I end up having a different problem.
Every other page is upside down (and yes I've tried the endge binding option, but it even happens when I print single sided).
It's seriously frustrating.
Have you contacted Ricoh tech support?
Our IT group at work says it's an indesign issue! I have had it successfully print on other printers, and I've tried everything I can think of on this printer.
That doesn't seem likely -- what's their justification? "My IT group says it's a printer or OS issue!"
Also, what app are you using to print the PDF file? What OS?
I'm using Acrobat X AND preview on MAC OS 10.6
Both applications have the same problem, even tho they show up correctly on screen.
More evidence that my IT department is right and yours is wrong.
Can you try setting up the printer as Generic Postscript or (wow, throwback) Apple Laserwriter?
In my experience, when an IT department can't figure things out, it's always the application's fault (or "those stinkin' Macs").
I'm pretty sure its a Ricoh thing. I do duplex booklet printing from Acrobat 9 (from a PDF file exported from InDesign CS5) to a Ricoh 5560. I often get the same problem. I find toggling the "Auto Rotate Pages" button in the print dialog on and off will fix it for me. There's no sense to it. If it first prints upside down, click the button and print again and it will work. But the next time you go to print with that setting, it will be upside down again. Click the button off, and it will work. I've given up trying to troubleshoot it.
