Digital Photo Printer Problems
Traditionally we usually depend on offset printing methods. But digital printing technique is a modern technology adopted by most of the users in big corporates, ad-agencies, media houses and other business firms. Digital photo printers gives you the capability of printing not just text but high quality photos so that you can print the photos and preserve it for the future. Without connecting to the computers, these newly designed painters can be connected directly to digital cameras or even mobile phones to take the prints. There are many different brands of digital photo printers available in the market such as HP, Canon, Dell etc.
Talking about the digital printers we are referring to high quality laser printers. Laser printing uses a single source of concentrated light to expose the image on to photosensitive material located on a drum or belt. Electrically charged toner is attracted to the image on the drum or belt that has an opposite charge. Finally, the toner particles are transferred to the paper and fused to it with heat and/or pressure. This technique produces normal photos with superior image quality.
There are so many features of a digital photo printer such as ultra fast printing capability, large volume paper output, energy saving functionality, printing wirelessly, uploading the photos on the server directly and even jam free printing facility which leads to less wastage of papers.
- Usage of third party ink makers
- Selection of wrong paper in the document feeder
- Software not updated with the latest updates
Problems due to third party ink makers
It may seem that using a third party ink cartridge will save your money but using it for your digital printer will definitely harm the printer. It is always recommended to only use the original ink cartridges so as to avoid the delivery of washed out print outs and even blockage of the cradle.
Selection of wrong paper in the document feeder
First and foremost it is important to select the right paper for your photo printer and not to select an inkjet paper or even a third party maker paper which is also called as a low quality paper. In fact using a wrong paper for the feeder may not give you the right picture quality and even get stuck in the printer. Therefore, it is necessary to use only branded quality paper or the one which is suggested by the printer company.
Initially when you are installing and attaching the digital photo printer on to your computer the first step is to install the right software required for that particular printer. If by any chance the drivers are not properly installed then the computer may not detect the printer and would not move further with the installation. Drivers and the printer software can be downloaded from the printer’s parental website and can even be updated from the same. We must look for frequent software updates from the Internet.
Keeping in mind these points and taking precautions would give us no problems while using our digital photo printer.
