Common Issues With Old Copiers
- Repair Issue
- Performance Issue
- Technology Issue
Repairing an older copier can be difficult. Generally, finding parts for a machine can be difficult or you won’t be able to find them at all.
Copier dealers may also charge alot for repairing an older machine due to parts availability or part pricing, so always be sure to get a quote before starting repairs.
Olders machines may no longer fulfill requirements in your office such as print speed or scanning.
The only solution for inherent design features is to buy a machine with the features you need.
Lastly, older copiers will eventually no longer be supported by the manufacturer in terms of firmware. Meaning, you won’t be able to connect your up-to-date computer to your copier because the manufacturer hasn’t created firmware for your copier to interface with your computer.
Reasons To Get A New Copier
- Broken or it can’t be repaired.
- Not fast enough or can’t be upgraded.
- Technology has become incompatible with today’s task.
