IBM® printer Maintenance Basics
If you have an IBM InfoPrint Color 1824 printer, you need to give thought to your IBM printer maintenance needs. Any printer needs to be maintained and one of the best ways to go about with the process is to ensure smooth operation. Seek a professional that can help you out with a specialized kit for saving on the costs and extending the life of the printer.
There are various ways through which you can maintain optimum performance for your IBM InfoPrint Color 1824. These include:
- Head cleaning
- Preventing the ink from drying up
- Preventing printer jams
Having too much ink on your printer leads to ink smudges on your printouts and congested ink nozzles. Some of the printers may have automatic head cleaning, but those are not up to the mark. Once the cartridge has been removed, clean the head with a soft damp cloth. Before the cartridge has been replaced or the printer has been switched on, you should ensure that the heads are dry. Don’t operate the printer with a moist head, risking an electrical hazard.
Prevent the ink from drying up
The ink can be prevented from drying up by taking a single print in a week. Dried up ink leads to semi blocked nozzles and this means the right amount of print ink does not show on the page. As far as colored printers are concerned, you can print a monochrome and a colored print for ensuring the performance of the toners and cartridges.
Prevent paper jams
One of the most important things to consider in ensuring the smooth functioning of the IBM printer is to make sure that the paper that is properly fed into the system. See to it that the paper is not tugged forcefully as it can damage the components of the printer. For safe paper removal, remove the hatch of the printer for smooth operation.
