How To Know If you need A Repair Or Replace your Copier

How to Set up a New Copier

Everyone wants their copiers and printers to work perfectly forever, but at some point, when you are calling out for printer repair more than before, it is time to think about whether it is best to just replace it. 

If you notice your printer producing low-quality printers, making weird noises or it simply stops working, it is time to upgrade. On the other hand, there are times when a simple printer repair is all it takes to get more life out of the copier. 

It can be confusing to assess whether it is worth keeping that old printer going. But do you really want to keep a printer alive if it costs you more money than it is worth? You probably do not want to. 

So when do you know when it is time to repair your copier or when it is time to buy a new one?

If you want to keep your printer a little while longer, it is best to check the repair costs of the printer first. If the repair cost more than half of what it would cost to get a new one, then perhaps you should purchase a new one. But that should not be the only factor that you need to consider. 

Also, check if there are parts that are readily available for your printer. If your printer is old and in printer age, that is not many years, then it may be a bit difficult to get the parts that are needed for the repair. This is a particular problem with inkjet printers, as they are cheaper and it is assumed that they will be replaced. 

One of the biggest reasons why people or businesses stick with their copiers is that they have a lot of supplies in stock for their copier or printer. Printer supplies are not a small expenditure and often there is no way to recoup the money spent on them because no one else has your exact model. 

How To Know If you need A Repair Or Replace your Copier

So when is the time to replace your printer? Printers and MFPs are now the most common piece of equipment in offices of all sizes. They play an important role in internal document management and external marketing strategies. Most businesses can’t afford to be without their printers for hours, let alone days. So if you find yourself making more calls for printer service and repairs than you used to, it may be time to replace the equipment. 

Check if your printer is secure. This lines up with the concern of how old your copier is. Old copier lacks the cybersecurity features that new models offer. And today’s digital workplaces demand proper security. 

Do you see the operating costs rising on the current printer? New printers use innovative technology that reduces their total energy consumption and the total operating cost compared to the older models. In almost all cases, modern MFPs outperform older devices while costing less to operate on a daily basis. 

Check if your printing needs have changed. The primary purpose of a printer is to print, but today’s machines do much more, like scan, copy and fax. If you need those capabilities but are using multiple machines to accomplish tasks, it is probably time to look at a more modern machine that does all of them. 

If you are still sceptical about whether you should get a new copier or just have it repaired, you can talk to an expert about it. They can advise you on what to do as they can check on what your office needs. You can also contact your local leasing company for options. For example, if you have a copier in Baltimore, you can contact Baltimore (410) 220-5299.

Remote Computer/Copier/Printer Support

Remote Support Information

*Copier and Printer

We typically connect to your computer, which should be on the same network as the copier. This allows us to access the copier's Web Interface for more effective troubleshooting and to adjust any settings that may require modification or configuration.


We will explore various troubleshooting steps, and if the issue is related to the network, we may discuss it over the phone without remote access until we resolve the problem.

Machine Capability

Please confirm if your copier can still copy or print standalone (e.g., without any computer or network connection) to ensure we address your issue effectively. Complete this questionnaire to the best of your ability, and we will get back to you promptly to schedule remote support. Thank you for choosing our services, and we look forward to assisting you.
