I purchased a broken Xerox 8570 to repair my one. After collecting it after a 4 hour round trip, I had a lovely surprise when I started to strip it down.
As my own printer had a broken Power supply (PSU), I had followed several routes to getting it repaired.
A new PSU was quoted at £185 + VAT and delivery but luckily I won a broken printer on eBay for £63. Even with the journey time and 150 miles of fuel, it was still a worthwhile project to cannibalise it for parts to repair my printer.
Two hours is all it took to transplant the PSU into my printer and I was up and running again.
By far the best nugget in this eBay transaction was that this printer had a fully loaded set of Xerox ink sticks. The retail value of these sticks is over £360 +VAT so although I started with the disappointment of a broken printer, I eventually acquired a bargain and that doesn’t include the additional spare parts I now have.
