If you’ve recently purchased a multifunction printer, make sure you make your investment last. Keeping your multifunction printer in good condition is hardly rocket science. With a little bit of effort, you can keep your multifunction printer device working perfectly for a long time in the future.

Clean your multifunction printer device externally

Printer care doesn’t have to be complicated or overly technical. The best way to start is actually pretty simple.

You can do your multifunction printer device a great good by simply wiping it down once in a while. By keeping your printer clean on the outside, you can avoid some serious damage. When dust and debris collect on your printer it can easily migrate inside. This dirt can affect the mechanical workings of your device and affect it in the long run. So, even if you don’t know how to perform other maintenance tasks, make sure you keep up with the dusting.

Clean your printer heads

If your multifunction printer’s printing quality seems off, it might be time for printer head maintenance. Many distortions in printed documents, such as lines, are attributed to a fault in your printer heads. In most cases, this can be resolved by getting your printer heads cleaned. Most new printers have an option for self-cleaning that can easily be done on your own. However, if you so prefer, printer heads can also be cleaned manually with the aid of a multifunction printer technician.

Resolve your printer’s paper jams

Whenever your printer experiences a paper jam, make sure you are dealing with the situation properly. A lot of people react to jams by roughly yanking paper out. This can cause more harm than good, damaging small mechanical parts in your multifunction printer. The best approach in this situation is to pull out a handy manual and follow instructions faithfully. 

Repair damaged parts immediately

 If your multifunction printer has become damaged in any way, continuing to operate it is not a good idea. In fact, it can lead to more damage, making repairs more costly and complicated. Instead, what you should do in this situation is to call an experienced technician. They can best evaluate your multifunction printer device, identify damage and make necessary replacements.
