Whether it is the main office printer or your printer at home, you need to understand how to maintain it properly to keep your printer running correctly. Discover some helpful printer maintenance tips below.
Paper Jams- Everyone understands the frustration when you are printing something in a hurry and the paper jams inside of the printer. To reduce your chances of this, you should never overfill the paper tray and make sure the paper is placed in the proper position. Otherwise, you could experience paper jams often. You should also reference your printer manual to discover the best way to handle a printer jam for your specific printer.
Regular Cleanings- Keeping your printer clean will help reduce the chance of dust or other debris from getting inside. Many offices keep printers covered when they are not being used. You can get annual, complimentary cleaning of your printers and copiers when you purchase and use compatible cartridges from ALT.
Don’t Risk Running Out of Toner – Keep a backup cartridge on hand. Better yet, become a part of one of ALT’s monitoring programs and let us take the worry out of keeping supplies in stock. Contact an ALT representative to find out more.
