Question about Canon PC-980 Color Copier

Copier self servicing video cd

I am a commerce person with very little electronics knowledge. I am forced to handle a large copier leasing business of our family. Most of the machines like canon ir 4oo require simple servicing at the customer,s location like changint the rubber rollers, paper jams, small defects in the adf or the fax card general cleaning of the machine. We find that outside technicians we are engaging are cheating us for small parts which have been accumulating into large amounts. We wish to acquire some basic trouble shooting techniques by using a video cd, if available. We find similar cd's are available for automobiles, laptops etc. Infact, we came across one cd on the internet but lost track of it. Can someone help us with the details of the availability of such cd's. Angadi Rao

Lease a Copier Vs. Purchase A Copiers - Pros and Cons

Today I am addressing the pros and cons of purchasing a copier vs. leasing a copier for your workplace. I was recently asked this question for the 5,000,000th time and I decided to answer the question publicly. If you feel like you have unique circumstances feel free to contact me directly to ask a question.
There are advantages and disadvantages to either acquisition process. There are several variables that will help steer you in the right direction to see whether purchasing or leasing a printer is right for your office. Whichever option you decide on, you can rest assured that Skelton Business Equipment will take excellent care of your machine with a recommended maintenance and toner contract.
  • Pros
    • No acquisition cost
    • Cheap monthly cost
    • Rotated new equipment
  • Cons
    • No ownership
    • Extended obligation
  • Pros
    • Instant ownership
    • No extended obligation
  • Cons
    • High initial cost
    • Potential for old non-functioning equipment
    • technology quickly becomes obsolete

Ask yourself these three questions:

1.) How long has our company been in business?
The credit approval process can be very sensitive to new businesses. Without 3 or more years in business the lease application will probably require a personal guaranty from the owner of the company. With that being said, it may make more sense to purchase a refurbished printer at a low cost, then lease a more robust, new printer down the road once the company has more established credit and higher printing volume.
2.) How much do we print?
Printers these days are designed to last! If you don't have a high volume of printing you'll probably get more bang for your buck purchasing an MFP outright. Most lease terms are 3 or 4 years, and if you aren't simply pounding your printer all day every day, then you should get a lot more than 3 or 4 years out of it. On the other hand, if you hammer your office equipment, it makes more sense to lease a machine so you'll get a new one at the end of the lease term and not have to worry about what to do with a broken down machine 8 years down the road. A headache is the last thing you need with office equipment, you have a lot of other things to worry about. And so do I.
3.) How much are we willing to spend out of pocket for a printer?
Large MFPs can are expensive. Leasing them is a great option for an office without a large budget. Most workplaces would function seamlessly with an MFP for around $200 a month, which would cost you nearly $7,000 cash. You could lease a machine that's out of your budget that will handle a larger workload than a system that was purchased outright.

With these questions answered you'll be on the right path to either purchasing or leasing a copier. If you're looking for a copier in Houston I give rock-bottom pricing, especially if the lead comes from this blog.
