Why does a photocopier need regular maintenance?
There are many reasons why a photocopier needs regular maintenance, including:
- To avoid machine breakdown and expensive repairs:
Copiers will go through the process of wear and tear no matter how well you care for yours, and certain factors can accelerate this process.
While copiers are built for daily use, copying large volumes each day can make it more prone to breakdowns. Employees may not follow correct copier practices which can lead to components deteriorating over time.
- To minimise downtime:
When your photocopier is down, your office productivity can be affected as employees may not be able to complete certain tasks. This could prevent them from being able to service your clients.
Preventative checks can help to identify problems before they become much worse and unforeseen breakdowns can be reduced.
- Improve photocopier performance:
By performing regular health checkups on your photocopier, not only will you prevent it from malfunctioning, you will also ensure that it is running up to standard.
Common photocopier issues
Photocopiers are bound to have some issues during their lifetime. We’ve listed some of the most common issues below:
- Paper jam: Jammed paper in your copier is one of the most common issues people face. This could be caused by the wrong paper size being loaded to improper loading of the paper.
To fix the issue, you will need to manually remove the jammed paper and reload the paper again, ensuring it is aligned properly and it is the correct size.
- Lines on the paper: When you copy a document and the copy contains streak, lines or marks, this is a clear indication something is wrong with your copier.
There are a few reasons this can occur including foreign substances on the scanner glass, drum unit malfunctions or even issues with the fusers.
- Cartridge and/or toner issues: Low or empty cartridges and toners can cause issues with your photocopier. If either of the two are malfunctioning, it's likely due to a manufacturer error or an incompatibility error.
- Copies are too light or dark: The majority of the time issues with lightness and darkness on copy pages is the result of an imbalance on the density controls.
The settings may have been changed by accident which will have caused the issue, so resetting the density levels is the best solution.
The best solution to fix these common problems is to regularly check your photocopier for any issues, and invest in a managed print service to monitor the efficiency of it.
