Troubleshooting Your Printer

Troubleshooting Your Printer

When I was growing up, the only way to print something was to take it to school and hope that the technology lab could read your floppy disk. However, these days, most people have a printer at home that they can use whenever they need to. I don't know about your, but at my house, we have our fair share of trouble with our printer. Sometimes it jams, while other times we end up dealing with clogged print heads and streaky lines on our documents. Fortunately, I have learned how to troubleshoot these problems, and I want to share the solutions with you.

Purchase a Multi-Functional Copier and Printing Supplies

A multi-functional copier will provide copying, scanning, faxing, and printing capabilities within your workplace. If you are aware of a printing service that sells copiers and printing supplies, speak to a sales representative about your needs and request a demonstration and information about acquiring additional supplies.

Many Salespeople Make In-Person Visits

A printing service may have a salesforce who reaches out to both brick and mortar business owners and home-based entrepreneurs, to aid in matching them up with the printing supplies that they need. A salesperson will need to know about your projected usage of new copying equipment, the various functions that you would like a copier to possess, and the printing quality that you prefer.

Some machines utilize inkjets and laser cartridges. Inkjets are small plastic cartridges that spray electrically-charged droplets across paper. Laser cartridges are larger than inkjets and contain a powder-based toner material. A laser cartridge can handle a larger volume of printing responsibilities and is suitable for use with copies or printed documents that are going to contain black ink.

For smaller projects that require black or multi-colored ink, a copier that utilizes an inkjet will be sufficient. During an appointment with a salesperson, you will be provided with information about various printing units and supplies that will work for your business needs. If you have a particular copier onsite that you would like to upgrade or if you are uncertain about one or more of its functions, the salesperson may provide you with a demonstration. 

Refilling, Setup, and Repair Services Will Save Time

The individual who sells you a new multi-functional copier may offer refilling, setup, and repair services. With a refilling option, you can have inkjets or toner cartridges refilled and they will likely cost less than new products. If you are not aware of how to set up your new copier, make an appointment to have it professionally installed. During the setup process, request an overview of how each of the machine's functions works.

If your copier comes with a warranty, you may be instructed to contact the salesperson if you have difficulty using the equipment at a later date. A technician may be sent out to your location or the salesperson may assist with basic repairs. All of the services that are included with the purchase of a new copier will save time and ensure that your copying or printing needs are not postponed.
