Is Xerox a verb?

Xerox is not a verb and the Xerox Corporation actively discourages its use in that way.

Xerox is a trade mark and a shortened form of the company name, Xerox Corporation. Its use as a generic term for all copying machines is part of a general process whereby proper names are transformed into common nouns, sometimes losing their capital letters in the process. This has been going on for a long time (e.g. "shylock"), and is often applied to modern era trademarks. Similar cases are "coke" and "kleenex," both of which are beginning to be found in formal prose.

Some people also use 'xerox' informally in place of the verb "to copy" or "to photocopy." This is an example of a linguistic process sometimes called "zero derivation," whereby one part of speech is converted into another without some kind of ending. English has done this sort of thing frequently in the past few centuries--e.g. "watch" or "kill" in some meanings. A more recent example of this applied to a trademark is "google." When such usages fill a gap, they are likely to become acceptable in formal prose at some point.

Who owns the registered trademark for Ethernet?

Ethernet was a trademark of Xerox Corporation, which relinquished the trademark when it was standardized by IEEE as IEEE 802.3. As it is no longer a trademark, Ethernet no longer needs to be capitalized, though it is still common to do so. The term has also come into wider use as new standards have emerged, as in "wireless Ethernet."

What is a better printer OKI or Xerox?

The answer to this question is purely a matter of opinion since Xerox and OKI are direct competitors. Some will say one is better and some will say the other is better.

Both companies offer a variety of products and some are more suitable for one application than another. That suitability must be assessed along with cost to decide which is better for a particular customer at a particular time.

What is a Xerox machine?

In the strictest sense, a Xerox machine is a machine that is manufactured or sold by the Xerox Corporation or one of its affiliates, such as Fuji Xerox. The word "Xerox" is a registered trade mark and in that sense can only be used in connection with products of the Xerox Corporation.

In common usage, the term "Xerox machine" is used by many to mean any machine that makes a photocopy using the xerographic process that involves dry ink, electrostatic charges, a light-sensitive photoreceptor surface, and heat or pressure fusing of the dry ink to the paper.

The photocopy manufacturing industry tries to minimize this use, however, for two reasons. Xerox Corporation wants to maintain control of its trade mark and prevent it going the way of the term "hoover" in the UK or "aspirin" in the US. Most of its competitors would prefer that their products not be associated in the public language with the name of a competing manufacturer.

What is a toner reset chip?

It's a micro-chip built into a toner cartridge. When the toner level drops below a pre-set minimum level - the chip signals the printer to inform the user that the toner is needing to be refilled. Once this action has been performed, the chip sends a 're-set message' to the printer, and it shows a full cartridge.

What is the working principal of the xerographic photocopier?

The dry paper copier, or photocopier, uses the photoelectric effect as its basic working principle.

The process is to spray electric charge upon the smooth surface of a semiconductor and then flash an image to be copied onto this surface. The light causes the plate to discharge in that local area. When pigment powder is sprinkled over the plate it sticks to the charged spots and falls off the discharged spots. The plate is then placed in contact with a blank sheet of paper to which the powder is transferred. Then the paper is heated under pressure to stick the permanently pigment to the paper.
