Stupid Things People Do with Copiers and Printers

The year 2012 is quickly coming to a close. While you may be committing (or recommitting) to all kinds of New Year's resolutions – exercising more, eating less, kicking the smoking habit and more – we hope that you'll also give serious consideration to this one: eliminating abuse of copier and printer machines. Over the more than three decades we've been selling and servicing copiers and printers in Canton, Akron, Toledo and many other Ohio cities, we've seen a lot of crazy stuff. I've asked our service technicians to share the strangest (and, in some cases, funniest) things they've seen people [...]

25 Years of Amazing Changes in Copier and Printer Service

Around the time when people were singing Bad with Michael Jackson and the ladies were swooning over Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, I started as a copier repair technician with Copeco. My how fast 25 years – and its swiftly changing technology – can go! Office Equipment Maintenance 'Back in the Day' The way we handle the servicing of copiers and printers today looks almost nothing like it did a quarter century ago. When I started in 1987, I often was asked to repair typewriters. Copiers made copies and printers weren't even part of the equation. Some copiers could staple, enlarge and [...]

FAQ: What Is the Best Copier for My Business?

This is one of the questions that begins nearly every conversation I have with a new client. How do I choose the right copier for my organization's needs? It doesn't matter if you own a small business, manage a department in a mid- to large-sized company, or run a church or school office. You still need a copier, printer or all-in-one machine that will do everything you need it to do at a price you can afford. The first place I always start is by asking, "What needs do you have that aren't currently being fulfilled by your printers and copiers?" [...]

That can be a long time if you're not satisfied with the way the technicians do their job. I first started providing maintenance and repair for copiers and printers in 1992. Over the years, I've learned a lot about what makes the relationship between a customer and a service technician run smoothly. On my list, communication is #1. From scheduling on-site appointments to working through a major repair, a good technician will keep you updated at [...]

The Platinum Factor: What to Look for in Sharp Copier Service

In the world of equipment maintenance (pick any industry), it can be difficult to decide which technician to use. Your options include asking friends and colleagues for recommendations or googling provider reviews or even old-fashioned trial and error (which can get mighty expensive). However, there are some standards of service quality you can look for. In the automotive field, it is ASE certification. In HVAC/R, it is NATE. But, when it comes to copy machine and printer repairs, things are not as clear cut. So, if your copier is on the fritz and you are not using a certified technician (which I highly recommend), [...]
