October 28th, 2015 | 2 min. read


How can you avoid the most common copier problems?

It's common to hear about trouble with a copy machine. However, a bit of expertise can go a long way towards making the machines easy to use.

The Most Common Copier Problems and How to Avoid Them

Anyone who has worked in an office knows how difficult copy machines can be to use. However, learning what the common difficulties are and how to work around them can go a long way towards making your day at the office easier.

Lines on Paper

Nothing is worse than when you need to make copies of an important document, but it prints out with lines and other deformities. This can be caused by foreign substances on the glass or the mirrors within, or can be due to a drum blade malfunction.


Paper Jams

This is perhaps the most common problem anyone encounters. There are as many potential reasons for a paper jam as you can think of possibilities, but it occurs most frequently because of improperly sized paper and improper loading. By checking these two issues first, you can get the copier working again quickly.

Wrinkled Pages

Lines on the paper are one thing. Wrinkled pages are another. The fastest way to losing a shot at a promotion is to hand your boss important documents that are wrinkled and crumpled; when this happens, it's likely due to worn out feed rollers or moisture within the fuser assemblies.

Copies Aren't Dark Enough

Problems with the color of the copies are often caused by density setting errors. If you notice a problem with the copies being either too light or too dark, check the settings on the copier. If they're correct, check the toner.

Spots On Page

Spots on the copied pages can be a result of smudges on the copy mirror. By cleaning it, you can prevent this problem from occurring.

However, despite these precautions and the necessary knowledge, copiers can sometimes break. When that happens and you need copier repair in Las Vegas, you have to know where to look.
