Preventive Measures to keep your Copier Up and Running.

For Copier owners.
A Copier is the most important equipment in an office.
Once it breakdowns, believe me your day will be a disaster.

Just to let things Easy..... I will simply just outline what measures has to be taken in order for your machine to be on top condition. 

First Rule: 
First thing and foremost... and remember this. Use Only Original Consumables for your Copier Machine. (regardless of what brand you have -- best advise to use Original Consumables for your machine. 

Let us highlight the importance of the First Rule!
  • Using non-original Supplies proves that it will cost you more. The use of non-original or the so called "replacement toner" will definitely diminish the lifetime of the component of your expensive consumables such as Drum, Fusing units. Eventually, you will be replacing it in no time without reaching the lifetime of consumables.
  • Using non-original Supplies will give you a poor copy qualities. Such as light copies or background copies/dirty copies. --- who needs Bad Copy Quality? 
  • Common problem that exist are the result of using Duplicates Consumables. 

Second Rule: 
Know more about your machine.

Third Rule: 
Once a problem occurs, DO NOT OPEN / DISMANTLE / or try to Fix it by yourself. There are some guidelines for operators on what is to be done like resetting and removing Jam papers/Stuck paper and thats all there is. (see your owners guide manual)

REPORT YOUR PROBLEM to your Distributor. (from where you purchase).

An Easy Way to Do First when a Problem occurs? 

Identify What is the Problem. By understanding what is the message in the Panel Display.

Top Common Problem that you will be seeing are the following: 

  • Paper Jam --   The beauty of digital copiers now these days is that, the information of the exact problem when a jam occurs will tell you exactly the location of the paper jam with figures and on some models, an animation guide step by step on what is to be done... so this is EASY. But remember to be very careful in doing so. After removing the Paper Jam.. Re-fix everything and your machine is ready to Go. 
  • Error Codes appears on the Screen of your machine -- Some can be reset by turning OFF/ON. If the problem persist, then that the time you will be reporting your problem to your dealer. And for the summary of the trouble codes, I will be updating this blog. So keep in touch.
