DIY Printer Repair Hacks

Are you frustrated with your printer?

Tired of not being able to rely on your printer?

Tired of not being able to get clear documents when you need them?

We understand your frustration. We can help make your life a little easier. Repairing your printer on your own can save you money, but having the pros fix it will save you many potential headaches.

Before you call in the experts, try these tips first:

1. Lagging printer speed –
Make sure your firmware and drivers are up to date.
If you have a wireless printer, try moving closer to the router to improve your signal.

2. Reduced print quality –
Your print head could be blocked. This usually happens when you don’t use your inkjet printer frequently, which causes ink to dry. Try cleaning the print head and testing it again.

3. Printer doesn’t work at all – 
Check to see if you have an error message and try fixing that first. Next, try rebooting your printer and computer. If that doesn’t work, ensure that all your cords are inserted correctly. If your printer is wireless, try restarting your router; there could be a problem with the signal. Some printers have a built-in troubleshooting system you can try if nothing else works.

4. Frequent paper jams - 
Too much paper in the tray can also cause papers to jam. Try stacking fewer papers at a time! 

5. Computer sending print job to wrong printer - 
If your computer is connected to multiple printers, you might end up confusing your printer with another that has a similar sounding name. Go to your Devices and Printers tab and change your preference to your default printer.

We have been working with Michigan Computer Supplies for three years and purchase OEM and compatible cartridges and maintenance kits for about twenty printers. We not only have three lumber yards but also supply our off site sales staff with ink for their personal printers. Our main HP printer uses about 40 toner cartridges per year. We prefer to use MCS's compatible or refurbished cartridges for cost savings. For example, out of those 40 cartridges we may have had issues with 2 of them and MCS replaces them right away without any questions! A lot of other companies ask a lot of questions and try to troubleshoot to avoid having to replace the cartridge or come on site. They are amazing! In addition, when we have been in a pinch they have come right out that day which is pretty rare. They are a very friendly company and always have us covered!
