Example of the RK Dixon Asset Number sticker

Toner and Waste Toner

For printers that are not large copiers, users should come down to the basement in the Physical Plant Service Building (PPSB) to where IT is. Someone in Room 20, 30, 31 or 40a can get them a replacement.

Address: 1501 S Oak St, Champaign, IL 61820

Xerox 6505 Printers

There are two items on the Xerox 6505 Printers that the F&S Support Desk can replace.

These items are:

  • Fuser
  • Imaging Unit

If the call comes in for these two items, transfer the ticket to the F&S-ITS Support Desk group in CA. All other Xerox 6505 repairs need to have a ticket with RK Dixon.

Please note: The F&S Support desk does not replace the fuser or imaging unit on any other printers. All Dell, HP or others need to have a ticket made with RK Dixon.

Large Copiers

Any ticket for replacing a Toner or a Waste Toner in a copier (large shared printers), the ticket should be transferred to the F&S-ITS Service Desk group.

Users are not to replace these items.

All repairs on large copiers must have an RK Dixon ticket. Making a ticket for a copier is the same as other printers with one minor difference. You will use the Serial Number of the Copier instead of an RK Dixon Asset Number.

The Serial Number is printed on a label just below the U of I Asset sticker (“P Tag”). It should be located on the front or side.

This Serial Number will be put in the Serial#/Asset#/EQ# field.
