1. Do Regular Cleaning on the Printer

Clean Regularly

Printer cleaning is the very basic maintenance but often forgotten by users. To keep the printer’s function as new, it should be cleaned at least once a week. This quick fix is to remove the small particles to prevent it to go to the inner part of the printer. When the printer looks dusty, just swap it with the clean and soft anti-static towel. For the security reason, do not spray the cleaning fluid directly to the machine.

Besides the outer part of the machine, the place where dust can build-up is in the paper tray. Check the paper tray regularly to remove any paper flakes in the paper tray.

2. Use the Recommended Type of Paper

Recommended Paper

Every machine has its own specialization. Some are used for daily use, some are for production needs. To receive the best result, it is better to use the recommended paper by the manufacturer. The wrong type of paper can cause paper jam and use more toner than necessary.

3. Have a Backup Toner

Backup Toner

It is better to have at least a set of replacement toner cartridges in hand so users can replace them immediately when the toner runs out. If a toner cartridge is approaching its end, the toner may harden and become unusable. Always store new replacement toner cartridges on their side. Do not remove the cartridges from the printer until you are ready to replace it with the other one.
