Technological advancements have made our lives easier and our tasks convenient. Modern commercial printers can print plenty of pages in a matter of minutes. However, there are times when these printers fail to work or malfunction. Malfunctioning commercial printers can be a source of frustration, disrupting productivity and business operations.

Some problems are common among commercial printers. Let’s take a look at them here.

Paper Jams

Paper jams are one of the most common printer issues that almost every printer user faces at some point. It can be frustrating, especially when a user takes the paper out, replaces it with a new one, and the problem recurs.

You need to be patient. Forcefully taking out a jammed paper or inserting a new one can damage your printer even further. Make sure you refer to your printer’s instruction manual and proceed as instructed there.

Paper jams occur because of misaligned paper. Make sure you don’t insert a paper in a hurry. Moreover, make sure you’re inserting the right-sized paper into your printer.

Poor Print Quality

You might’ve noticed your printer isn’t delivering the same quality of output it used to when it was new. This can be due to a couple of reasons. Firstly, your printer may be running out of ink or toner. There could also be damage to the ink cartridges that can be causing the problem. Wear and tear on the printer can eventually damage cartridges over time.

Secondly, you might not be using the right paper. Choose good quality papers for a better quality print.

Printing Takes Longer

Sometimes, a printer may take a lot of time to print or simply not print at all. Check if your printer is still connected to the Wi-Fi network or the USB. If the printer is disconnected, it won’t print, and if the internet connection is not stable, it might cause printing delays.

Secondly, try shutting down and opening the printer again. If the problem still exists, check the printer’s drivers. Printers don’t print if they have corrupt drivers.

If your printer is malfunctioning or has broken down, get a new one from Axis Business Technologies.
