You bring your car in for regular oil changes, you replace air filters in your home, and you repair plumbing before it breaks when you can. You probably don’t do these things because they’re fun, but rather because it’s better to take care of things than suffer the consequences when equipment goes down. Are you taking care of your office printer or copier in the same way?
COPIER REPAIR: KEEPING YOUR MACHINE UP AND RUNNING
It’s not difficult to keep a copier in good repair, especially if you’re working with a trusted local copier technician. It’s worth the investment, too: copiers can cost thousands of dollars, and when one goes down, your company loses money in productivity and lost opportunities. Don’t let machine downtime affect your bottom line. Here’s how to keep a copier up and running.
INVEST IN REGULAR MAINTENANCE
Don’t skimp on regular maintenance and cleaning; it can make a world of difference in your copier’s performance and longevity. Routine preventative maintenance can also keep your copier running faster and help you avoid issues like poor printing quality and paper jams.
CHECK YOUR MONTHLY DUTY CYCLE
Is your copier running over its capacity each month? You can check what your copier is rated to accomplish on a monthly basis by contacting the manufacturer or dealer you purchase it from. This is important information to have, since running a copier over its duty cycle will have a shorter lifespan and will malfunction more often. It’s better to purchase a copier that can handle the load you need rather than constantly repair an inadequate machine.
CHOOSE A QUALITY SERVICE CONTRACT
When you purchase a copier, you’re also choosing a service contract, and service contracts aren’t all created equal. Choose a dealer that offers a service contract with maintenance and parts repair included.
