I would like to see a robot troubleshooting a copier where a paper jam is the only indication of electronic failure and are not sensors...

Until robots can: Take apart computers, order the correct components to be replaced and install the new parts, or simply perform whatever repairs need to be done, all completely automated; I don't see it happening anytime soon. There are so many different computer systems out there and so many different types of repairs that need to be done, that I don't see robots performing any better than humans in the foreseeable future.

I think that robots will actually help people repair computers (soldering robots are already a thing for example) in the next 20 years, but not completely replace them. After that, who knows what will happen.
