    Re: How Long Servicing Office Equipment

    Fixed my first copier back in 82. Savin 220. Last seven years I was doing teir 1 tech support / customer service. The last copier I was trained on was the Panasonic DC262 color copier.

    I am am now out of work and nobody will hire me because I am not trained on anything new. I am a good tech but nobody sees it that way.

    Glade to hear so many old timers out there still plugging away. I feel like an old worn out shoe. What a waste of my time. Can not even get a job parking cars because they feel I am over qualified.

    Shoot me please!

    I was hired in Jan 1971 for the launch of the 4000 machine. So far, I have been trained on 72 copiers/printers both Xerox and other brands. I am 76 years old and still work at copiers/printers, and laptops to service machines.

    Wow this is very impressive!

    Keep up the good work.

    I started in this industry in 1991 & that feels like a long time ago!

    Damn...you beat me. I thought I was the oldest fart in the business. I am now 70 years old. I stated in September 1968 with Xerox. And yes, I remember the 4000. Still have my weird first service manual. I became a Product Tech specialist on the model for our branch. I had to replace a lot of "A" transport bearings in the early days of that model. Oil hose leaks were a mess! I was the first one trained in our branch, and the only one on our team.

    I forgot to mention. I'm at 47 years in the business now.
