14 TLC maintenance tips to keep your printer in tip top shape
Follow our 14 easy printer maintenance tips to keep your printer performing at its best for years to come.
Ensure an adequate source of power by plugging your printer into a properly-grounded electrical outlet (not a power strip).
Reboot the printer after a power outage, firmware update or maintenance issue.
Store paper in a dry location.
Only use clean, undamaged paper: no curled, wrinkled, torn, moist, creased, or folded sheets.
Flex, fan, and straighten the paper before loading into your printer.
Don’t load more than one type, size, or weight of paper in the same tray at the same time.
Use the right kind of paper stock for your printer – every printer has its own specifications for paper types, sizes and weights.
Do not place anything on top of your printer.
Don’t open covers or doors during printing. Light exposure can damage the drum cartridges so don’t leave the covers and doors open for any length of time, especially in well-lighted environments.
