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.

I have worked with Michigan Computer Supplies for about two and a half years. They supply us with 5-10 toner cartridges each month for about 17 printers, of which some are large volume printers. We use both their refurbished and original manufactured toner depending on the device. I believe the refurbished cartridges work just as good as the originals. We also order Zebra printers and labels, Ethernet cables, bar code scanning devices and more. You name it. They have it. Occasionally we have also purchased printer devices and have had items repaired by them as well. I typically call once a week because we go through so much toner. When I call to let them know that we are getting low on supplies they are very efficient with their response time. Kyle delivers new toner by the next day and removes the old cartridges and recycles them. In addition, Jessica often mentions other cost saving measures such as quantity price breaks or recommends a compatible refurbished cartridge to save money. They try to give their customers the most bang for their buck! They are a great group of people to work with. They are very customer oriented and go above and beyond expectations. We recently had a specialized fax machine stop working that would cost $2,000 to replace. I spoke with Chris and he did some research and within 30 minutes called back with a suggestion of another device that would fit our needs for only $ 400.00! They really care about their customers.
