Common Printer Problems

There are many printer problems and one of them is that the paper isn’t loaded properly by the feeder tray. It could be somewhat surprising that many printer problems can be fixed by only using screws. We should make sure that the paper won’t stick with one another and we could fan the paper like poker dealers. In this case, we should make sure that the paper loosens up properly. In this case, the paper won’t jam up the roller. We should also make sure that the printer cartridge is fitted correctly. Figuring out whether the cartridge is installed properly shouldn’t require a degree in rocket science and it should be easy to fix. Depending on the model of our printer, we should read the manual to know how to remove and install the cartridge. In general, we should make sure that the cartridge is properly locked in the grooves. The small contact points on the cartridge should fully contact corresponding contact points in the printer. In this case, we could be sure that the cartridge is loaded properly into position. When all are properly installed, paper could be fed properly and the roller will be heated.

Common Printer Problems

Other thing to consider is to know whether the printer has some kinds of blockage inside. Some of the build-ups may appear harmless enough, but clean internals are essentials, especially because there are many moving parts. Small bits of the paper could get caught up inside and it could cause problems in many random spots. Six months of build-ups can start to make problems even on relatively new printers. We could go to the nearest art supply stores and we could choose some of the fine bristle brushes. In some cases, the printer is simply too old and worn out. Overused printers need to be replaced, especially if they are used frequently. One good way to make sure whether the printer could still work well is by counting how many times it jams up each day, even if it is internally clean. Common ways to clean the inside of our printer is by using fine bristle paint brush and use cotton bud to remove dirty accumulations on the rollers. We should make sure that the roller is completely dry before we use it. In general, clean printers could perform well and jams up less frequently.

If we have problematic rollers, we should use Gum Turps, which are available in many hardware stores. Depending on the quality of the rollers, we may need to replace them after printing 500,000 pages. After we have cleaned the rollers, we should put it back into the printer and we need to make sure that we have closed all the doors and flaps. Users who don’t check whether everything is properly attached could be in for some surprise. It is a common sense to check whether cartridge and rollers have been installed properly, because jammed up printers could be particularly troublesome during busy situations in the office. Even after we have done these steps, it is possible that the printer still jams up.
