While it is true that every print device will eventually reach the end of its useful life, a proper Managed Print Service is designed around an effective and comprehensive preventative maintenance schedule. This will ensure the lowest cost of ownership for an organization. New print devices also experience paper jams and need new parts on a regular basis. This is all a function of the number of pages running through a printer, not just the age of the device. None of this is covered under a manufact urer’s warranty. Additionally, the most costly and continuous repairs are the replacement of fuser units and maintenance kits. Both of these items are considered to be “normal wear and tear” items and are therefore not covered by the warranty.
