There are various errors that can be associated with your printer. Some of them include:
- Carriage jam
- Replaced printer’s cartridges but printer still not working
- How can I install a driver
It is also important to optimize your printer’s settings to get the best-quality printing.
The carriage is a compartment where the ink cartridges are held together. This carriage slides back and forth in order to transfer ink onto the paper. Carriage jams might occur because of several reasons like obstructions in the path of the carriage, a paper jam or even issues with the product software. When the carriage is stuck, there is a grinding noise on printing because the actuator arm gets stuck, which prevents the carriage from moving. To resolve this error, clean the carriage of any dust or piece of paper. Do not force out the paper as it may leave bits of paper inside the printer that can cause harm later on.
Replaced printer’s cartridges but printer still not working
Always use the ink that has been authorized by the manufacturer. Also check whether the ink cartridges have been inserted properly or not. Perform a head cleaning on the printer. If the problem still persists, call a technician.
How can I install the printer driver
A printer driver is a program that allows the operating system to communicate with your printer. Drivers can be installed in a number of ways. You can either download a driver, use pre-packaged drivers (executable files or set-up files) or use a driver CD/DVD provided by the manufacturer. Using the wrong device driver can result in your hardware not working properly. You need to upgrade your driver in order to make it work with a new program with the same piece of hardware.
