Printer Service


  • Printers should be routinely maintained-usually twice a year to ensure optimum performance and extend their operating life.

     

  • Proper maintenance involves a number of restorative and preventative measures such as cleaning, inspecting and/or replacing fuser and separation pads, feed rollers, transfer guides, registration assembly, gears and rollers, and thoroughly cleaning any build up of toner or paper dust throughout the printer interior and exterior.

     

  • These measures are incorporated in a checklist which is completed by the service technician and signed by the client. See the checklist below

     

  • Qualtec charges $39/monochrome printer for its cleaning and maintenance service which is performed on site.

     

  • Qualtec charges $59/colour printer due to the complexity of these printers and the additional cleaning required with four versus one print cartridge.

     

  • Despite regular maintenance printers occasionally fail, requiring expert diagnosis and repair or replacement of various drivers, controllers, motor assemblies etc.

     

  • Qualtec provides a free help line for remote diagnosis and troubleshooting of many common printer problems. When a visit is required, Qualtec charges $79/hr plus parts for its repair service, performed by our certified technicians.

     

  • Most repairs can be completed in an hour however if the printer must be removed to complete the diagnosis and repair-a free loaner will be provided.

     

  • Often the cost to repair a personal or small commercial printer or to replace a consumable component such as a drum or fuser exceeds the value of the printer. In these cases we will always advise the customer against proceeding and will recommend a suitable replacement printer-new or refurbished.
