Importance of Troubleshooting The Printing Problems

Troubleshooting Printing Problems

When you are need of a quick print from a printer and its troubling you, isn’t it frustrating?

Here are some common problems that can be fixed irrespective of the printer model.

Jam in the printer – Sometimes printer will notify on the display screen as paper jam resulting in no print. If there are no paper jams look for any ghost jams which is not letting your printer work. Ghost jams I mean in this is are there any small amounts of paper stuck in your mechanical parts surrounding. If you found any, clean it up that should fix the issue.

Driver Issues –  In order to communicate your machine with printer, you need a driver installed on your PC or laptop. If in case of driver version is incompatible with the printer version there most likely an issue and the printer will stop working. Look for any software issues and update accordingly.

Queuing – In some cases, printing job finishes, and the queue remains. In such cases, vendor specific free software is available for troubleshooting and fixing. This software need to be downloaded from the official vendor site. If you still have problem, another solution could be uninstalling your driver. Sometimes, old driver version will have incompatible issues that will result in job queueing on printer.

Internet connection – There are chances that printer lost connection to the internet/wi-fi. If the printer wi-fi is down, unplug and reconnect it to modem. This ideally solve the problem but if not try restarting your wi-fi device modem. Poor connectivity between your PC and printer can also result this problem, suggest restarting your PC and the printer to it solves the connectivity issue. Some vendors offer free software for troubleshooting as highlighted above. Running those software’s will result in a report and provides a solution to fix the problem or automatically fixes the issue on troubleshooting.

Ink block on Printhead – If the frequency of printer usage is not very often that can lead to clogging. This can be cleared by a wet paper towel. Remove the cartridge and face print head down on to the warm towel. You could see ink appearing on the paper towel, then wipe it with the dry towel to clean it up and insert back into the printer and run a test print. This will mostly fix the issue. Caution, if you are not seeing the ink on the paper towel you may be bloating the wrong input, check thoroughly before cleaning with paper towel.
