Many times, a printer is thrown out due to the ink drying up or ink streaking. Avoiding these issues and extending the life of your printer is easy. Here are 3 easy steps to perform printer maintenance:
1. Make sure you replace dormant paper in the tray. If paper remains too long in the paper tray with no activity, the paper could curve and cause print misalignment.
2. Find how to clean your printer’s print heads. These are the nozzles through which the ink passes from the cartridge to the paper. Cleaning the nozzles usually prevents ink drying and faint or misaligned printing. Sometimes, you have to clean the heads several times to fully optimize the print quality.
3. Update your printer software to ensure the best resolution quality for your printouts.
If these 3 steps don’t work, try inserting another print cartridge. If all of the above fails, a new printer might be on the horizon.
