SAVE MONEY GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR TONER:

Don’t get nervous when you see a 5% warning message to replace your toner. This is a simple reminder to make sure you have enough on hand to replace when it gets down to 0% .

Please use our genuine toner containers, which have passed rigorous quality control testing. We recommend the use of Copystar and Kyocera brand supplies.

What were old copy machines called?

The stencil duplicator or mimeograph machine (often abbreviated to mimeo) is a low-cost duplicating machine that works by forcing ink through a stencil onto paper.

Inventor Chester Carlson used static electricity created with a handkerchief, light and dry powder to make the first copy on Oct. 22, 1938. The copier didn’t get on to the market until 1959, more than 20 years later. When it did, the machine prompted a dramatic change in the workplace.FIRST COPIER

Don’t you hate it when you get an error ‘Maximum Weight Exceeded’!!? But if you have a Postbase it’s an easy fix.

  • A message stating ‘Maximum Weight Exceeded’ (the weight is too much for the selected class of service) If the mail exceeds 13 ounces, the system will display a message: ‘Maximum Weight Exceeded’.
  • Press OK, then use the Product button to select Priority Mail, then Retail, then type the first 3 digits of the destination zip code to properly rate the piece. (Note: Mail must be processed in the specific manner required by the US Postal Service –if an error message is displayed when selecting a certain service or class,you are likely not choosing the correct option available. Consult USPS regulations.)

Most errors can be cleared by following the prompts on the screen and/or powering down and then restarting the system.

Please remember when restarting your machine:

  • Once completely off plug in your internet cable in first before you turn your machine back on. Firmly press and release the silver power button (it will illuminate blue when power is on)

 

  • (Note: The Ethernet/CAT-5 cable must be connected to the PostBase BEFORE the system was turned on.)

 

Like most things we own a simple restart can fix most problems, like your cell phone, your cable TV, your husband..

1. Office Copiers Need (a little) Care:

If the copier hasn’t been used for several days, such as over a weekend, it’s important to run a few test prints before using the copier intensively.

Make sure to replace old paper with a new stack and check for any jams before the day gets started.

Most copiers, when left idle for a period of time, will go into sleep mode and initiate a calibration mode once started up again.

Be patient. The machine is doing this for a reason and pressing the copy button a million times won’t speed up this important process.
