Abstract

The monthly telephone company charges and installation costs for a dedicated telephone line tied directly to each copier are disadvantageous for a remote diagnostics system. This alternative system would use an audio tape cassette unit associated with each copier. The taped data would be removed from the copier and played back to the remote diagnostics center location over an existing customer telephone line.
