Resolving Various Printer Issues
Printers are devices essential for taking physical copies of work done on computers. Printers are of many different types such as LED printers, LCD printers, All-in-one printers, laser printers, etc. Majority of all operating systems come with printer setup wizards that can be used to set-up and configure printers for the system. Although printers are fairly easy to setup and use some users might face some problems with the working of printers. These issues include printer not working issue, very poor quality prints produced, printer hanging, error messages when using printers, paper getting jammed, etc. Paper getting jammed and smudgy prints might be because of hardware related issues such as dirt settlement within the printer and such problems would have to be resolved by removing the access panel of the printer and cleaning the components.
- Check Drivers
- Resolve System Errors
- Check Printer Connection
Drivers are the link between the printers connected to your system and the operating system installed on the system. Problems with the printer drivers would directly affect the functioning of the printer and cause problems. All printer users having issues with the working of printers are recommended to check the status of the printer drivers installed on the system using the device manager. If the printer drivers are found incorrect/ illegitimate or outdated, replacing the drivers with suitable ones would solve the issue and get the printer working.
Resolve System Errors
Errors within the operating system might also cause issues with the use of printers. Errors within the system include errors with some of the system files associated with the printer drivers, registry related errors, errors with the printer services, etc. Users facing issues with the working of printers are advised to clean the registry of the system with a registry cleaning software, check integrity of system files with default system file checker (and repair OS if required) and also restart the printer service to clear off errors and get the printer working.
The printer connected to your computer makes use of connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware such as connecting cords or connecting pins are damaged in some way, then printer would not function or the printer connections might get terminated. Users having printer related issues are recommended to check the printer connections and ensure that they are secure. If the connecting hardware is found damaged, they would have to be replaced to solve the issue.
