    Since Copy process is in question I 'd say Scan (off glass)
    Erase to add to drum process ( doesn't always apply though)
    Transfer is debatable since there can be 1st and 2nd transfer.

    8. Scanning (From analog days)

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

Doesn't matter who makes it, all copiers have 8 basic steps. If an "experienced" tech can't tell you that - don't hire him or her. Also remember that it takes two years before you even know what's going on and five to get decent at it. We all didn't get to be super techs with out years of experience.
    if im not mistaken.. from days only 5... but oh well times evolved

    1. Scanning
    2. charging of the drum
    3. formation of the image (exposure)
    4. developing
    5. feeding
    6. transfer of image to the paper
    7. fusing of toner to the final copy
    8. cleaning


    btw this video helps me understand faster..

    One of the best was when they made a short piece of VCR tape using "sticky tape & rust"

    I may have to convert those shows to digital someday soon.

    Re: Pre-hiring testing

    I think what I would do is provide my prospective technician with a manual the day before. Tell this prospective employee that they will be replacing such and such part tomorrow. Read up for tomorrow. Then watch what happens.

    Answer any questions. But you'll know soon enough. Within 30 minutes, I have one of two reactions: Either I want to take away the tools, or I watch to learn. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    RE: Rust used as video tape media.
    This would be an interesting video to see.

    When compared to Black Iron Oxide(Fe204) , Rust, Red Iron Oxide(Fe2O3) has lost and electron making it almost non magnetic. Rust, being a non magnetic material, I believe would make it no good for use as a video tape recording physical media.

    Rust (Red Iron Oxide) has a very very week magnetic attraction or magnetic pole alignment, meaning it will not align well with the video recording head magnetic field. Unlike Steel or Black Iron Oxide which has a very strong magnetic attraction/ alignment.

    It would be interesting to see the video...

    Good point. I think if I have a company, you would be my number one Manager . Mechanically incline, that what you're looking for. Test, diploma is a JOKE.

    Re: Pre-hiring testing

    I started Danka in march 1995 as a parts guy. Within a month or so of asking the service manager, and the techs questions about the machines. The service manager had a Konica 1290 come in the shop, that needed the scanner clutch replaced and the fuser rebuilt. He handed me a book and the part and said, that if I could replace the part and the machine work, that he would send me to school...I look back now and wonder what I was thinking asking so many questions.
