In many offices, the printer is one of the most important pieces of equipment you use every day. Most people can handle basic printer troubleshooting. For example, you know what to do if the paper isn’t in the tray correctly or you need to replace the toner or drum. But what do you do when you run into a problem you can’t fix with the usual solutions? You call Hallmark Copier for professional office printer repair! Our technicians know how to solve your printer problems, even the extra tricky ones.
We’ve covered some common printer problems in a previous post, and in this blog, we’re going to look at some more office printer repair problems.
Poor Print Quality
If you’re printing off documentation that your clients need or contracts to sign, it’s important that your prints are clear. Streaks, faded prints, or uneven colors look unprofessional and are also hard to read. If replacing the toner or drum doesn’t fix the problem, you should have a professional take a look at it. Ghosting and double-printing are also common print quality problems. This is when you see faint or repeated images on your printed pages. The cause is often a problem with the internal components. To avoid further problems, it’s best to have it fixed by a professional technician.
As printers become more advanced, they also become more complex. They are essentially computers with some hardware on the outside, and when something goes wrong with the software, the printer just won’t work. If your printer keeps sending your error messages despite your best troubleshooting efforts, you are likely dealing with a software problem. It could be that the software is not up-to-date or that it is not compatible with the devices you are trying to print from. A professional office printer repair technician can help you resolve this issue.
Slow Printing Speeds
Offices that require high print volumes don’t have time to wait around for documents to print. Slow printing speeds could be a hardware or a software problem. On the hardware side, you could have worn internal parts, or the sensors could be malfunctioning. If it’s a software issue, you could have insufficient memory or outdated drivers.
