Printer problems can be frustrating. It’s not just the fact that you have to deal with a paper jam or a low toner light on your own — it’s also that you might lose whatever you’re printing if something goes wrong. Here are some ways to troubleshoot a printer that’s not working properly.
If you’ve recently printed a document and it comes out blank, there’s a good chance that your printer is experiencing a paper jam. Unjamming your printer is usually a simple process, but if you’re not sure where the jam is located or how to fix it, you may want to refer to your printer’s user guide or contact the manufacturer directly.
If your printer isn’t printing properly or at all, it could be because of low ink or toner levels. This can be especially frustrating if you just bought new cartridges or refilled them recently. If this is the case, try cleaning the nozzles on the cartridge with rubbing alcohol (or something similar) and see if that helps. It might also be helpful to print an alignment page from the maintenance menu on your printer so you can make sure everything lines up correctly after replacing any parts of it.
Printed pages are blurry or faded. The ink cartridge may need replacing. Printed pages are smudged or dirty. The paper may be damaged, or it is not loaded correctly in the tray. The print quality is poor, even after cleaning the printer head and cartridge. The ink cartridge may be empty or defective; replace it with a new one and clean the head again. If this doesn’t work, contact your manufacturer for advice on using refilled ink cartridges (if allowed). If you’re using an HP OfficeJet Pro and your ink levels look normal but printing is still faint, press and hold “Cancel” while pressing “Resume” until all lights blink twice, then release both buttons. Afterward, turn off the power and unplug the printer for 10 seconds before rebooting it normally (don’t forget to insert paper into the tray).
If your printer is out of ink or toner, it may not be printing correctly. To troubleshoot this problem, turn off your computer and unplug any cables from your printer (including USB drives). Then press down on the cover release lever and hold it while pressing down on the cover release latch and sliding open the top cover until it clicks into place. Next, use a screwdriver or coin to remove all of the screws on top of your printer where you would normally connect your monitor cable. For further solution you can contact king print.
