10 Series1065

Xerox 1065

January 1987: Xerox announces the Xerox 1065.


The 10 series represented a new generation of copiers. This became the most successful line of copiers in Xerox history and served to restore the company's finances and morale. The flagship Xerox 1075 became the first American-made product to win Japan's Grand Prize for Good Design. Altogether, 14 models were introduced between 1982 and 1986, six of which were still sold in 1990.

Oh what joy this machine was to work on. This was thoroughly tested before hitting the field. When we say the 1065 was quality it truly was. David Kerns was the CEO at the time this machine was launch and he made it a point that it was going to be a quality machine. It ran and it ran some more. This machine was hard to stop. The parts were good and the design was was good. I really need not say more. I loved it.

I was a technical specialist/troubleshooter for these in the UK.When properly serviced and set up they would run far in excess of the listed photoreceptor life.The optics needed to be kept clean or lamps could blow-664 say no more- but a joy to work on.You could tell if a machine was ok just by ear.I often wondered if the display message “reaching convergance”was a humourus touch.

This was our “high quality 10 cent copies” machine when we had it next to an 8200, which only cost the customer 5 cents. The difference was noticeable, that’s for sure. I bought one used many years later and successfully ran it up until about 1999. Miss that machine!

One of the best made with the concern of service to repair them!

I was part of the first group of technician trained on the then called “Columbia”.
Great quality, a little noisy RDH, tendency to catch on fire before a mandatory fuser retrofit. No set separator in the duplex tray, which cause major headache when double sheet feeding occurred from the main tray. If the lower auger failed the waste toner would backup to the point of becoming a solid. Quite the challenge to repair the optics of a cable failed.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
