Fixing Color Printer Problems
Printer is a computer device that produces a text and graphics of the documents stored in electronic form, usually on a physical print media, such as a paper or other transparencies. The color printer is capable of printing more than one color. Most of the color printers are based on the CMYK color model, which prints in the four basic colors: the cyan, magenta, yellow and black. By the printing combinations of different colors close to each other, the CMYK model helps to simulate most other colors. Presently, five printer technologies are in use by manufacturers and all of them provide color printing capabilities. These printer technologies are Dye-Sublimation (Dye-Sub), Laser, Solid-Ink and Thermal-Wax.
