Copier repair can seem like a huge, scary subject at first. After all, unless you're a technician or a copier expert, there's so much to learn--but the good news is that you don't have to know everything. You just need to brush up on a few important facts so that you're ready to handle copier repair whenever necessary--so let's get started!

Nobody's Perfect

Even when it comes to top-of-the-line, high-tech copiers and multifunction printers, you still need to be prepared to make repairs. Why? Well, the simple truth is that nobody's perfect--not machines, not software, and not employees. Sometimes, even with the best care, something will go wrong, someone will break something by accident, or the technology will develop an issue you just don't understand. The good news is that you can be prepared for any of these situations by knowing a few simple facts about copier repair.

  • #1: You always need to do the math.

Before getting involved in any copier repair, you need to make sure that it's financially savvy. For example, if this repair is going to be the first in a long line of issues, it might be smarter (and better for your budget) to simply replace the machine.

  • #2: Keep an eye on downtime.

Your first priority when a copier goes down is to get it back up again. This seems obvious, but remember, the haste is necessary in order to avoid downtime--which gets more expensive the longer it goes on. You'll take a hit to productivity and efficiency, and you might even have some frustrated customers on your hands.

  • #3: Contact the professionals.

Whatever you do, don't try to fix your copier on your own unless you know exactly what you're doing. You could end up with an even bigger and more expensive problem--so just call the professionals!
