Get your printer repaired
How can I repair my printer?
Obviously none of us wants to face a printer problem. It is too annoying when you try to get printouts of very important documents stored in your PC and all of a sudden your printer stops working. Generally printers of all sizes and models face the same issues. Here we present a few simple tips to repair your printer if it is not working properly.
Printer problems may occur because of a number of things. The four most common causes are:
- Strange Errors
- Driver Conflict
- Paper Jam
- Printer Smears Ink
Sometimes it may happen that you may be able to print a test page and print from other programs, such as Microsoft Word, but are not able to print from Internet Explorer. This problem might occur if you are using a third-party driver provided by your printer manufacturer instead of a driver included with Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition. In that case you need to follow the instructions provided by your printer manufacturer to remove and then reinstall your printer driver.
If you have plugged in your printer, but it is not able to recognize the PC, then you have to check the software that came with the printer and then install the drivers that came with it. If by any means you do not have the CD, then all you have to do is to download print drivers from printer manufacturer’s website.
Sometimes you may face a situation when there is no indication that the paper has jammed up the printer, in that case, open it up and visually inspect it to take the jammed paper out.
Printer Smears Ink
In case of this problem, you need to take out the printer cartridges out, and using a Q-tip, clean off the grime by gently rubbing the alcohol on the print head.
