    paper poll

    I am fritten anal about paper and more so how the customer stores and loads it. I always tell the customer, "I don't care what kind of paper you buy as long as the copier seems agreeable to it and you continue running the same paper through the life of the machine". I generally inform customers that there are different feed systems some like one paper better than others, the trick is finding the paper and sticking with it.

    Back to the poll. What percentage of your repairs do you feel are a direct or indirect result of the paper itself, customer incorrectly loading it, or customer not storing it properly? For example: things like a scratched drum because of bent corners making a paper jam, misfeeds, removing paper scraps from sensors, etc

    I would guess my calls are 75% or more because of this.


    A. Below 25%
    B. 25% to 40%
    C. 41% to 55%
    D. 56% to 70%
    E. 71% to 85%
    F. Over 85%

    Remember, it's a tough world out there, you've got to watch out for number 1, and make sure you don't step on number 2.

    Paper - Album on Imgur

    This is what I discovered yesterday. This is not even the worst I think I've seen.

    Re: paper poll

    I voted less than 25%. Can only speak for Konica Minolta 50 ppm or less models that I work on, I don't think paper is a big issue like the old days. Of course some paper generates more paper dust etc. but doesn't cause any additional service. Well not anything noticeable. Only customers I recommend better quality paper for is Biz 601's because they recycle the waste toner.

    In the old days we use to blame everything on the paper

    A machine covered in paper dust is always an indication of a happy machine ??

    Living in the tropics, no one ever believes its their cheap paper until i put a new ream of reflex in and works perfect for 500 copies. Soon as 501 jams, then they still don't believe it

    Re: paper poll

    I guess I voted high because a large amount of clicks I manage are between 4 school systems. One of them actually uses a rather good paper, but the teachers are always in a hurry and careless with it.

    Love how they put the stapler sheets in backwards. I used to put notes not to store paper in tray like your other picture. The notes always seem to disappear. So I have resorted to writing in thick red permanent marker, please do not store paper on this side of guide. That seems to work much better.

    This one wasn't just stupid, but advanced stupid. They not only were storing paper on the left side, which some of our other customers have been caught doing, but moved the paper end fence over. This machine has auto paper size detection so it figured that anything but 8.5x11LEF was in it, and subsequently jammed every time.
