Started at Xerox Central Jersey branch in 1977, trained on the 7000, 3600 and 2400 in Leesburg. Worked the downtown Newrk NJ territory for 5 years. Left Xerox 1982 and rehired 2020 as a Technical Service Manager.
Was working for Vydec Inc around 1976 as a copier operator on their 7700. They sent me to a local Xerox sales office in Mountainside, NJ to learn some basic maintenance such as restringing corotrons, cleaning the drum, etc. The trainer’s name was June Frost, I kid you not. After a year or so of the 7700 it was upgraded to a 9200 and I ran that until I quit and went to work for a Xerox Reproduction Center also in Mountainside.
Joined RX in 1971 as a service engineer in South London. Trained initially on flatplate, 813, 914 and progressed up to 3600 and 7000 before spending 6 months at Newport Pagnell as a tech trainer.. Transferred to EEO (Eastern European Operations) as a field trainer and tech specialist. Travelling to all the former communist block countries for the next seven years. Started to specialise in engineering products, 2080 etc. This eventually led to me being recruited into SABO (South Asia Business Operations) travelling to countries in the Indian sub continent. Other countries visited varied from Iceland, various Mediterranean countries and… Read more »
ok, who remembers the “orange county shuffle” for 7000’s?
I got trained on the 7000 in Leesburg Virginia in 1979. Awesome instructors. I had Austin Salis for my 660 course and for my 7000 course. He took apart the paper feeder (cam angle adjustments,, Multiple adjustments) looked at us, our group, and mentioned to us, “Are you afraid of this machine?” Nervous as I was, I said no. LoL. The course was great. When I got back a year later, we had “Total Call” and Initialization process. We were given a booklet that had every symptom and fixes on the duplicator, and it worked. The machine was totally taken… Read more »
I love the 7000 had 28 years with Xerox .
Xerox EOS in Pasadena California designed and made the electronic components for the 7000. During development, EOS chose to use 24vdc logic (The same logic voltages as the first iteration of the Xerox 4000, Duplex Copier) digital controls for the enlargement and reduction control that was completely variable. This was utilizing brush analogue to digital devices and used coincidence logic as feedback for the optics. The Gnomes in Rochester turned their noses up at the design, saying that the field Tech Raps didn’t have the knowledge to service that technology, forcing the engineers at EOS to redesign the system to… Read more »
Joined Xerox right out of the Air Force in 1961 New York City. Worked on all of their copiers and duplicators until 1983. I had a walking territory in N.Y.C for over 5 years and then moved to Southern California in 1968. What a difference with a company car. Working on the
Duplicator family ( 2400, 3600, 7000 ) my territory was from Costa Mesa to San Clemente. Spent more time driving than working on the machines.
Those were the days. Miss all those developer dumps.
I used to work on the 2400, 3600, 7000 in London and then home counties during the 70s. I remember the training at Newport Pagnell well, my snooker got quite good. Driving from Oxford to Denham to pick up drums, fuser oil and wipers, microswitches and PM kits. Snubbers on the paper feeder were always getting bent. Very inefficient with the brush removal of waste toner. Had one with a 50 bin sorter on it and the auto doc feeder… Must have spent 20% of my time keeping that one working. Trying to get one up 2 flights of stairs… Read more »
I worked out of Wilson St, London EC as a walking engineer from ’73 to ’76. Fantastic job and fantastic company. I remember the Newport Pagnall training site and being trained on 3600s and later on 7000s using FIMS. Very enjoyable days.
The max sorter length was 5 units (50 bins). Trust me one of these on an unstble floor was a right pain.
Actually almot all of the (Rank) Xerox range could do double sided – just with the 7000 they gave you a nice hand slide to work out in what order to copy the pages to get it right when doing booklets – great fun when you got a sorter jam on a 50 page run. Happy days.
Gostaria muito de obter uma cópia dos relatórios de atendimento técnico xerox. No caso, não seria aquele que preenchíamos para o cliente, e sim, o relatórios que demonstrava o atendimento para empresa. Tirávamos cópias a partir dos manuais(1030AM, 1035, 7000, etc…
Se alguém puder ajudar, seria ótimo. Eu tinha vários manuais, mais quando mudei de cidade acabei por perde-los.
tenho ainda muita coisa da década de 90. Manuais de 1035, 3100.
Vou procurar o da 7000.
Vou tentar achar algum relatório aqui.
Sou de MG.
Hired post USAF in Sept ’67 – Tech School was for 813/660 at Hicksville, NY. Duplicator training came next. I was assigned to Princeton, NJ branch and I quit in 1972…….Moved to Honolulu and the new Serv Mgr. there said, “You’re hired! And you have 3 calls up…here’s your tool bag and your Co. Car is out back!” Left for Minnesota a few years later. DocuTech training was next. Glad I wasn’t around when Byran Uyesugi went on a shooting spree in Honolulu in 1999. It was obvious the big “X” was on a downhill slide, so I took my… Read more »
I REMEMBER THE DAY THE EVENT YOU MENTIONED CAME OVER OUR PAGERS. I WORKED IN PGH. BRANCH FROM 1972 TO 2003.
I got a taste of “Minnesota Nice” that day. As the news came in, I would wander into “work support” to be nosey about what was happening in Honolulu. One of the “dispatchers” there then said this to me: “You’re not part of that group anymore. What do you care what’s going on there?”
One thing I miss —- Anyone recall those “yellow towels” that were used to clean up “dust, toner,” and other stuff You would take them out of their package, then stretch them and they were the world’s best tack cloth. Where are they today?
My first job at Howard Kennedy and Rossi in Cavendish Sq London 1972 to 1974 had a 720 in 1972. then upgraded to a Blue 7000 in 1973 ish. I don’t recall a sorter on it but it was much faster than the previous 720. I went to Euston Rd Xerox for Key Operator Training. I recall when I asked about colour copiers the instructor said the FBI in the USA were concerned over this.
No idea if that’s true but they did say it. I may have a photo of it.
I worked in the Centralized Refurbishing Center (CRC) in Springfield Virginia from 1977 to 1979. I was an ATR (assembly test repairman) and I worked on the 2400, 3600 and 7000 duplicators. Saw a few 2400s that came in with 2 million plus copies on the counters! Bill Alkire (sp) was my boss in assembly test. Bill Reid was my boss in PrePack when I first started. Bob Mason was the shop steward I think. Anybody remember the ladder schematics? Or the Nixie tubes for the count display? Remember when someone would mis-wire a machine and when it got to… Read more »
I would be interested to see if you have any pictures or other information on our building. Please contact the Fairfax County Archives and Records Management Branch at 703-658-3875 when you have some time. Please ask for Rex. Thanks
Did you want pictures of the Springfield CRC?
Any pictures would be greatly appreciated! We have little information about the history of the building during the Xerox era. I know it was built in 1968 and was added onto several times before Fairfax County purchased it from Xerox in 1985. Please email any pictures or further information to email@example.com
Any pictures or further information on the building during the Xerox era would be greatly appreciated! We know the building was originally completed as a part of the Shirley Industrial park development in 1968 by Xerox and was added onto several times before it was sold to Fairfax County in 1985. The “Xerox” sign placement pegs are still attached to the front of the building. Please email any pictures or further information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ha, try being the last tech to work on one of those high mileage 7000s, glad to see the back of them,well at least when they got that old.36s and 7000s were what I started on in Canberra back in 1984. Then onto 95’s, 1075s (Yuk) and 1090s and then 5090s and Docutechs plus other products, colour etc. I hated the 1075s, always seemed to get one on a Friday afternoon with a million HFSI’s up and it’s normal reluctance to run Xerographics. The 1090 was one of my favourites, they took a banger like the 1075 and made a… Read more »
I loved the 1090 machines too. One of my first jobs in my youth was using a 1090. The techs and I sorta became friends we’d see them during our “special project runs” where we’d put about the monthly duty cycle in the short span of three days. Lol. I understood how you shouldn’t push the machines that hard but we did. After the tech removed a bunch of things like filters and panels to get the thing some air it ran with virtually no stops or jams. I was quite impressed how hard you could push them. The machine… Read more »
I work at the Springfield refurbishing center from 77 to early 1983 I would like to know what happened to the CRC And some of the employees from back then. I remember some of the names you mentioned.
Does anyone remember the product code for the initial 10 bin collator for the 2400? Thanks. I worked in San Francisco from 1968 – 1988. Thanks – Joel Spindler
I sold the Xerox 7000 in Detroit in 1969.
How much did a base Xerox 7000 sell for in its day?h
While there was a GSA price on all models most all including 3600 , 7000 and autofeed were leased.
I had over 80 3600/7000s plus 30 720 & 914s on lease
5- 1860 & 2 -1824 at McDonnell-Douglas / Boeing , St.Louis , Missouri
I was Account Manager at McDonnell-Douglas , St.Louis with over 125 pieces of equipment and we could never have retained our dominate installation without our fantastic
Service Engineering Team of Gordon Frailey, Ken Golf, Lou & many others.
I still have a couple of 7000 toner in my garage….I service those babies since 1974….2400’s 3600’s etc.
I once sold a 720 copier to a man in a trailer. As he looked at the sales brochure on the 720 with a young woman next to it, he said, “Do you really think we can get this machine in this trailer?” I said back, “Oh, we’ll get it in here!” And we did!
I still have my field service manuals for the 660, 720, 3600 and 7000.
With the FIMS process for the 7000…
Preciso de cópias dos relatorios tecnicos que ficam nos manuais, Pode me ajudar com isso?
Bomb dia..Voce necesita estes livros..Voce tem esta maquina? Obrigado R.
Snubbers, fluffers, puffers and Nixie tubes. They were made of great things!
Don’t forget the sniffers.
I was a service engineer in the 70s working on 3600, 7000 and 840 duplicators both in the field and also at the refurbishment workshop in Uxbridge. I would love to get my hands on one these again!
I was a service engineer on, 660, 914,720,3600 7000, 3100 in the 1960s and 1970s. Then after sales manager.
What do you want to know.
