Ryobi 3302 problem

My 3302 is tearing the sheet as it goes through the transfer cylinder. It is sporadic and I can't see what it is doing. Any one have any suggestions?

Installed new rollers in one unit. After install when I put the water form down the #2 ink also comes down. Do you know what the problem might be?

Make sure all your transfer cylinder grippers are set to open at the same time.... Very important... check the transfer to the impression cylinder ... you may have the problem when the sheet transfers there. The impression cylinder grippers must open sufficient to accept the sheet. I have found that sometimes the gripper operating cam can be worn and not opening up wide enough to accept the paper.
Hope this helps.

I am running a ryobi 3302 having problems when the paper is fed in the press it hits the stop fingers and starts in the grippers and grippers close and the paper is not straight with the grippers like the operator side slides back a little but when the upper fed roller comes down and hits the base of the grippers it's straight and the grippers are tight and all the same and all new any clues

Your gripper timing is critical ... Transfer cylinder timing opens to deliver to impression cylinder at approx. 182 degrees on the timing wheel. The impression grippers close on the paper at approx 180 degrees. There must be a 2 degree overlap for proper registration. Both set of impression grippers MUST be opening/closing at the SAME degree point.***THIS IS CRITICAL***
Check to make sure your machines degree wheel is set properly at zero. Zero point is when the upper feed roller just touches the lower feed roller. Stop the press and see if your degree wheel is at zero!
Hope this helps. These numbers are for the 3302M the H model is different but has the same principle of the 2 degree overlap.

There is a CS-4 sensor on the non-operators side of the machine... That sensor is either bad or disconnected or your inverter could need replacing.
Hope this helps.

Hi All!
Can anyone help?
The ink duct roller wont turn on our ryobi 3302 when the duct & blade are locked into place. No its not done up too tight, and all ducts keys are loose. No ink under blade as its completely clean. Duct will turn using handle but almost seems to slip when the ink is in duct.
Ideas?

I've got a question for anyone really, my ryobi 3302M that I've inherited recently will not transfer the image from the plate cylinder to the blanket. Am I missing something? I have been in the printing business for about 17yrs altogether, and I've never seen this mess of a press like this. I spent some time just cleaning the rollers real good.

This undisputed fact is for that "master printer", Tony Strange.

I have been operating Ryobi 3302 presses since their introduction to the print market in the mid 80's. I am also a long time GTO operator. Your assessment that the 3302 will print anything that the GTO will print and match the quality and production effiency, is inaccurate. I do not have to go into an extended explanation of why you are wrong, something short will suffice. It is what it is: 3302 is potrait format, GTO is Landscape. 3302 has push guides, GTO has pull guides. 3302 has 3 ink form rollers, GTO has 4. I could go on and talk about the difference between crestline, ryobimatics and alcolor or swing grippers and three point registar versus head stops and feed rollers but I think that if you disucss the above mentioned facts with some of your respected colleagues you will find that colletively we can get you back on the right path and also prevent you from publishing things on this site that are simple inaccurate. As a "17 year master printer" you should demonstrate a greater degree of responsibility for those that search theses sites for informative purposes.

By the way, Ryobi builds a press model 512 that is closer to the GTO than the 3302.
