Printer Care

Although multifunction printers probably aren’t the most high-maintenance machine in your office, they do benefit from a little regular care. However, the good news is that you don’t have to do back-breaking work to keep them operational. All it takes is a bit of routine maintenance, and your multifunction printer will be ready to go and keep going for a long time

Here are a few simple printer care tips to extend the life of your multifunction device:

  • Update the software.

Software updates are an important part of printer care. Sure, they can interrupt efficiency for a few minutes, but they’re necessary for performance and longevity–and, remember, they’re a critical element when it comes to print security, too.

  • Clean the machine.

Keeping your multifunction printer clean and cared-for is an excellent way to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Just take care of all the moving parts, and don’t be afraid to consult your manual to make sure you’re doing everything right.

  • Know the optimal monthly volume.

The optimal monthly volume describes the highest number of pages you should be printing per month. This number helps you understand what your multifunction printer is capable of, but it should also limit how much work you expect your printer to do. Be good to the machine, and it will be good to you
