How to Care For Your Printer



A good printer is frequently a big investment, whether it's for private home use or industrial purposes. It's essential to put the time into maintaining your printer so you can get many years of use out of it. These tips will help you get the most out of your printer.

1. Keep it Clean

One of the most important aspects of printer maintenance is in regular cleaning. Whether you use a simple damp cloth or industrial Anilox cleaners, getting any loose debris or dirt out of the inner mechanisms will make sure your printer doesn't perform poorly. You can also use a small handheld vacuum to get any hard-to-reach spots, but make sure not to damage any of the finer parts inside. 

2. Use the Right Ink

A lot of printer issues come up when people try to use knockoff cartridges, or simply don't know which kind they should get. You can go with the cartridges provided by the manufacturer, or do some research and find a compatible option, which will likely be cheaper. Make sure your ink is the right one for the job, too, as photo-quality ink is completely different from what you'd get for simple document printing jobs.

3. Fix Internal Issues

Sometimes it's tempting to ignore the error flashing on your printer screen and try to print anyway, or avoid it until the last minute, but fixing issues as soon as they come up is the best way to make sure your printer lasts a long time. Simple issues, such as jammed paper, can be easily fixed. You can easily find solutions to such issues in your user manual. If the issue is more complicated, refer it to a specialist. The cost of repair will likely be less than an entire new printer.

Use these tips to care for your printer and avoid replacing it over and over again.
