Repairs and Service
Laserjet printers, copiers, and fax machines can be repaired in-store, and sometimes on-site. We can take a quick look at your printer to determine if the problem is something simple, or if we will need to take a longer look. If you have to drop it off, we will charge $35 for the initial diagnosis. If it's not worth fixing, we will let you know.
