How do you maintain a copier

A copier can prevent you from copying a specific document manually. A copier is also known as a photocopier, photocopying machine, or copy machine. It makes use of light, heat, chemicals and electrostatic charges to give you a neat copy of a text or graphical material. Because it is handy, there are instances wherein it gets overused and results in dysfunction. 

Here are the tips on how you can maintain your copier.

Like any device that doesn’t have its maintenance or cleaning system, copiers tend to have some issues, primarily if not correctly maintained. 

Check the Manual

To take reasonable steps for your copier, you must know its manual. There are many ways to maintain a copier. However, it varies depending on the model. If you know what’s on the manual, you will know how to operate the copier. In this way, you can prevent minimal problems like paper jams. 

Always check the manual before using it, or if you haven’t checked it yet, it’s not yet too late. Please read it now. You might be using it in the wrong way. 

Clean your copier Glass

You have to clean the glass on your photocopier. Because this is often the part where dust sticks, you should at least clean this once per day so that the dirt won’t pile up. If not, you would see some dirt smudges in your succeeding copies. 

It’s essential to buy a copier glass cleaner to clean and protect the glass, not just your tissue or rug. On another note, I think it’s best that you also clean the inside of your copier. 

If the inside of your copier gets a lot of dirt, that might cause you another problem. Unlike the glass, you only need to clean the inside using a sog cloth. For the parts that are hard to reach, you can use compressed air instead.

Clean the Paper Tray or your Paper Area

Do not forget that you also have to clean the area where the paper is stored. Suppose you have a pile of paper in the open. Move it to an enclosed area to avoid getting dirty. The dust on the paper tray will get stored inside your copier whenever you’re using it. That’s why you should also make sure that it is clean. 

Continuously give your paper plate a standard investigation. They may be drawers, yet they are NOT for putting away something besides paper. If you see a paper cut on a paper plate, take it out!

A few trays even come out. Be cautious while eliminating, as most of it is made of a blend of plastic, metal, and even pinion wheels and can be harmed if not maneuvered carefully.

A decent guideline while eliminating a tray is to deal with it tenderly. If it doesn’t slide back ineffectively, the odds are good that something isn’t adjusted as expected and could break whenever constrained. Last, when a paper tray isn’t being used, like your copier’s detour plate, keep it shut.

Keeping your paper tray shut will also prevent the dirt from getting in. Thus, it will save you internal problems later on.
