Here are a few advices on how to decrease the price of your printing operations. Your printer manuals will come handy when you encounter any glitches so, keep them safe and in a shelf that is accessible. It would be quite useful to refer to your manual when one of the maintenance lights pop up and you have no clue why the light is on. In case, you have misplaced your manuals, you can check the online support offered by your manufacturers. Most manufacturers have an exhaustive list of commonly encountered issues along with probable solutions.
Like most products, your printer will last longer if you take good care of it; even an incorrectly resolved paper jam can lead to printing issues in the future. Instead of getting frustrated when a jam does occur and yanking the paper out, refer to the instructions that come with the printer to find the best way to fix a jam on your specific model. Usually, the best practice is to use both hands to slowly pull the jammed paper out of the printer to avoid leaving ripped paper behind or damaging the internal parts of the printer. You can also prevent jams by making sure the paper you load into the printer is not torn, dog-eared or stuck together and that the tray is not overfilled.
Getting a warning that your printer is out of ink? Go ahead and ignore it. In a lab test, PC World found that ink cartridges still contained anywhere from 8 to 45 percent of their ink when this message started to pop up. Thick fonts and bolded text require extra ink to print, so skinny up your text and save. Some ink-sipping fonts to try: Arial and new courier. Want to save even more? Download Ecofont, a free font that uses 20 percent less ink by placing small white circles within each character.
Like any other machine, printheads have a life span for use before they need replacement. The first sign your printhead may be nearing replacement is a loss of print quality. If the issue is a simple printhead clog, running a cleaning cycle or two should clear out all the dried ink. If you replace the ink cartridges after the cleaning cycles and the print quality hasn’t improved, your printhead may be the culprit. Most printers today offer up some type of warning that there’s a structural problem with your printhead, indicating on the LCD screen with a warning like “printhead problem” or “printhead appears to be missing or damaged” to take a lot of the mystery out of your problems. Most printheads are easily replaceable, but they can get expensive. In many cases, replacing the printhead will cost as much as purchasing a replacement printer. And in other cases, installing a new printhead can be complicated and require some technical skill. Before you purchase a new replacement part, consult with the instruction manual to see whether or not it’s worth it. Often, a failed printhead is the perfect opportunity to pick up a unit that is better suited for your business, helping you save money in the long term.
