In today’s world of technical advances, virtually every business makes use of some type of photocopier. Photocopiers, like everything in the technological world, are advancing to be able to offer a wide array of features to suit every kind of business need. From compact and simple black and white photocopiers to large and complex multifunctional color copiers, it can be a frustrating experience when something goes wrong and you need to find support to get your machine up and running again. Or perhaps you cannot figure out how to use some of the features on a complex machine. Fortunately, with the advancement in technology comes advancement in support on photocopiers of every kind. In today’s world, it is simple to find support on photocopiers of every type.
The obvious first step in getting support on photocopiers is to look through the user guide that came with your photocopier. For larger and more complex machines, these manuals can be incredibly large and difficult to navigate. If you cannot find a solution in your user guide, where should you turn next?
Most companies provide technical support on photocopiers they manufacture. Depending on your warranty or the company, you may be charged for using technical support, especially if a technician needs to be dispatched to work on your photocopier personally.
If you are a somewhat technically savvy person, but the user guide for your photocopier is of no help, try doing an online search about the issue before contacting the company directly. Many manufacturers have online support, and even if the manufacturing company for your photocopier does not, you may find a how-to article offering a simple solution to your problem.
Finding support on photocopiers can sometimes be difficult depending on the issue. Fortunately, virtually every manufacturing company offers on-site technical support if you are unable to resolve your issue personally.
When you contact the manufacturing company for your photocopier, you will be connected with a technical support specialist. They will ask the details of your machine and about the issue you are having with it. They will attempt to walk you through a solution, or send a technician out to check your photocopier and resolve the issue.
Finding Support on Older Photocopiers
Finding support on photocopiers can become most difficult if you have an older, out of date machine. There are many resellers of photocopiers or private technicians you will have to seek if something goes wrong with an out of date photocopier. Every machine reaches a point in its life where it will no longer function properly regardless of the technical support you are able to find.
Fortunately, in today’s world it is becoming much easier to find an affordable photocopier to suit your needs. You may even be able to find a company willing to buy your old machine or give you a discount on a new one if you trade your old one in, much like with used cars.

There have been numerous studies on the impact of color – there is no doubt that as human beings color can have an affect on our mood, our behavior and our perception.

Here’s a thought… we all have websites these days – and when was the last time you saw one in black and white?! This is because WE KNOW that colour will give a better impression; be easier to read; convey content better etc. Why wouldn’t you choose to continue the message from web to print?
This is all marketing speak and maybe your business isn’t marketing focused, but is it information focused? If you are trying to get detail effectively across to people (reports, training, presentation etc) then colour is important for you too. Color tabs or color sections help to get to the correct part of a document faster. Color photos in documents improve the understanding of the reader. Information is retained better when it has been delivered in color – lets face it, it is boring to read through those giant black and white reports and no-one retains well when they are bored!
Essentially everyone knows the power and impact of color these days and we would all love to make use of it…the good news is that the gap between a black and white MFD and color is now much smaller than it was even 2 years ago.

Company’s new e-STUDIO Products Include Array of Next-Generation Technologies to Meet Demands of Today’s Business Environment
To allow businesses to create dynamic color documents in a secure and ecological manner, Toshiba Tech SA today introduces its e-STUDIOTM5560C/6560C/6570C series of multifunction products (MFPs).
By producing vibrant images and text at up to 1,200 x 1,200 dots per inch resolution and delivering up to 65 pages-per-minute while in color mode, the company’s new product line is ideal for businesses large and small. For users seeking high-speed performance, the e-STUDIO6570C series produces as many as 75 monochrome pages-per-minute.
To adhere to and maintain brand integrity for marketing materials such as advertisements and brochures, users may take advantage of Toshiba’s e-BRIDGETM Color Profiler Version 2.0 software. This tool enables users to accurately match and support the widest array of recognized Pantone® color palettes possible. To further complement users within graphics-intensive environments, the new print fleet includes a fiery controller option.
For greater color accuracy during lengthy print tasks, Toshiba’s e-STUDIO6570C series also includes its Auto-Calibration feature, which runs periodic checks to ensure that hues remain consistent throughout the printing process.
By integrating a 10.4-inch tiltable touch screen panel – incorporating the company’s next generation e-BRIDGE controller – within the new e-STUDIO6570C series’ product design, users may more easily manage, capture and deliver documents.
Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE controller further allows all of the benefits associated with cloud and mobile printing for Apple® and AndroidTM smartphones and tablets while seamlessly allowing users to access and utilize third-party software for added printing efficiency.
To more securely store documents, the new MFPs include a robust 320 GB Self-Encrypting Drive (SED), which have attained validation to the stringent U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2. By incorporating Toshiba’s unique wipe technology, the data residing on the drive automatically erases when accessed by an unregistered system. As a result of achieving this validation, Toshiba’s e-STUDIO6570C series products are available for use in highly regulated environments such as government facilities. For added information security, Toshiba’s latest e-STUDIO models include a Hard Copy Security feature to prevent the copying of sensitive documents.
Conforming to Toshiba’s mandate to reduce environmental impact, the company’s new printing products meet the stringent Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive – or RoHS – compliance.
Coupling a low-temperature fusing toner and Super Sleep Mode feature – reducing power consumption to a mere 1.5 watts while in this mode – the MFPs limit electricity use. To further reduce its carbon footprint, Toshiba’s e-STUDIO6570C series integrate recycled plastics throughout its chassis.
As an eco-conscious company, Toshiba offers customers free toner recycling per its “Zero Waste to Landfill” program. Through its partnership with Close the Loop, Toshiba accepts all brands of spent toner cartridges. Once Toshiba’s MFPs are no longer operational, the company recycles these products. Toshiba has 14 recycling locations throughout the United States; working with all customers in support of its Zero Waste to Landfill initiative.
“With the unveiling of our e-STUDIO6570C series, we now outfit companies of any size with an affordable printing fleet featuring industry-leading image quality to fully address their employees’ diverse print needs” said Bill Melo, vice president of marketing, services and solutions at Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. “Aside from the premier color elements inherent throughout the products, our new e-STUDIO offerings combine an array of security and energy-saving elements.”
The e-STUDIO6570C series is available for purchase through authorized Toshiba dealers. For more information about Toshiba products visit Toshiba Tech website
