Does anybody remember the problems with the noisy gearbox of this model ?
Yes, I serviced these machines, I was a Geo-combo outline service rep, for 33 years. I serviced 914,2400 7000 660f, dups,3100F,2300f,2830,1035,1025F,5046f,1065f,2510F wide format, 7085,5028f,416,785,3300,432F,5355f,memorywriters, fax 785f fax,TC100 fax And,,, some more, I forgot. At first they used a metal cylinder connecting the plastic gear box to the drive. It was very noise. They retrofitted it with a Rubber type of coupler; it helped a little but the gear box was still noisy. The paper feed clutches were a job to replace under the back of the developer housing. The Drum module got hot and caked the toner hard because the… Read more »
Yeah – the 3450, like the 3109, 8200, and 3300 – was a marketing release, developed and put into operation soley to fill a niche. I only had a few of these and didn’t mind them but I remember some techs hated them with passion. I forgot all about the toner tubes and bags. And adjusting the DF height for the belt.
Man 3450. Early 80s, Cleveland tech rep. They were horrible. I had a territory that was full of they. And they never ran. Two years later, Xerox had us retrofit ( rebuild ) them. The sent us custom tools to align the frame and optics. It took two guys several days to fix one. Since I had so much experience with them I got to fix them. The were good machines for the sales reps, sold like hot cakes.. but the factory just shoved them out the door with little or no quality control. Those machines could give a lesser… Read more »
Oh, yeah – and another thing: the white natural rubber document feeder belt rubbing up against the glass platen made for some interesting discussions in the parts drop during team meetings – we wondered if the guy who came up with this design had ever watched Don Herbert and the “Mr. Wizard” TV show where he used rubber moving against glass with paper acting as a capacitor to generate static electricity… Then about 2 months after this box was in the field, Xerox issued us bottles of “static eliminator” and told us to also use our zinc stearate pouches to… Read more »
They say time heals old wounds, but…
My only two memories of this and the 3400 taking service calls are clogged waste toner tubes that backed up and destroyed PR drums and broken lift cables in the paper supply module.
Sure looked nice in an office, though. When it wasn’t making copies.
