Is fixing your old fax machine worth it?

Other than the regular maintenance costs of fax machines, such as changing toner and ink, sometimes your fax device just stops working and you need to have an expert take a look at it. If you already know the problem with your old fax machine, you don't need to pay for the service charge, but if you have no idea what's wrong with your machine you are going to need to pay for the service charge in order to find the problem. The next step is buying the required parts to be replaced with the broken ones. And don't forget about the cost of replacing or fixing these parts (The cost is different than the first service charge).

Is the cost worth it, or are you better off with buying a brand new fax machine?Have you already made up your mind and decided to go for replacing your fax machine with a new model? We may have a better solution that is much more interesting than fixing or replacing.
