Every office will have at least one photocopier and printer and with constant use every day, they are bound to run into some issues even with regular servicing and maintenance. Luckily, most of the issues encountered can be easily and quickly solved.
The most common issue of all is paper jams. These can occur in both printers and photocopiers and sometimes happen for no reason at all.
Paper jams can be solved very easily by simply removing the paper gently, cleaning out any torn pieces of paper and checking there is nothing stuck inside the printer.
If you are experiencing paper jams often, it may be because the paper has been loaded incorrectly or there is too much paper in the machine, in which case removing some may solve the issues.
Another common issue is poor or inconsistent print quality. This can happen when the ink cartridges are low or damaged and may result in blank spots of streaking.
Removing the ink cartridges and checking there is sufficient ink, replacing them if necessary and gently wiping off or cleaning the underside of the cartridge to remove any build-up or dried ink may help this issue.
If you are noticing issues with photocopies, there may be marks or streaks on the glass screen of the photocopier. This can sometimes result in a smudged or unclean copy. Cleaning the glass and ensuring it is free from dirt and debris can help to solve this.
Slow printing speed can be an issue for a variety of reasons. If there is a high volume of print jobs being sent to the printer, it may be overloaded and take some time to print it all.
This can be solved by staggering the times you send documents to be printed or by increasing the memory of the printer or upgrading to a faster internet connection.
