I'm on this program at home. He was getting regular shipments of ink that he didn't order. You'd think that would be a clue. Technically, when someone cancels our maintenance contract, the toner in the unit becomes unfunded. We have every right to go and remove it. No one ever does but the unused toner has not been paid for.

Yep this one threw me for a loop! WTF! Did NOT see this coming. Here's another question: What's going to happen to all the Canon engines in HP printers? Will they switch to Samsung engines now? That could be a huge revenue loss for Canon. They make a lot of money on their patents.

Here's something I picked up on alerts tonight: HP Inc. CEO Dion Weisler started Monday with a bang. His company, a giant in personal computer and printing, said it would buy Samsung’s printer business for $1.05 billion. Weisler’s hope is that the deal would help HP hpq better compete in the copy machine market and help offset declining sales of printers. HP said Samsung’s printing business brought in $1.8 billion in sales for its fiscal 2015. This number is just a fraction of HP’s overall...

Re: Xerox & Fuji Film Coming down to the Wire

I’m sure the engines are probably ok but dropping their formatters and drivers on top have allot of teething issues. In HP world they have a 49.xx error which is generic formatter/driver issue. I know a few dealers have dropped them and gone back to their original brands because of the high labour costs. It’s all very new technology I’m sure they will get it right after a few more generations

I agree with Jason. It would be nice to have technology manufactured in the US in general. But at the end of the day our labor expenses and manufacturing process automation/quality assurance seem lacking in the globalized landscape. Manufacturing copiers and printers here would also involve moving the manufacturing from existing plants. In a market space where existing manufacturing is below capacity, it would make the case harder to move one. To provide a solution - why don't we reinvest in...
