Having that expensive printer go down during an important job can be very frustrating. Taking your printer to a repair service can also be time consuming. Before you take your printer in to be repaired, there are a few things to check for. Make sure your printer actually needs repair. Check to see if all the plugs are fully seated. Look at your power cord and make sure you are getting power from that outlet.
If your printer is network-capable, look at your Ethernet cord, is it plugged into both the printer and router? Is the router operational? If your printer is hooked up to your computer by USB or serial port, make sure the connections are fully seated, and your computer can see your printer. Your printer may be simply out of paper or there might be a paper jam, a very common problem.
Replace your toner cartridge, it may be out of ink or is not seated correctly. It may not even be your printer, check to see if your drivers are up to date. Update your operating system. After that and you still have problems with your printer, try un-installing and then re-install your drivers.
After all that, if your printer is still not working, you might try on-site printer repair. They may be a bit more expensive, but it saves you time and troubles getting your printer into a repair shop. Houston printer repair services are plenty, and you will have no trouble finding one that will go to your business or home.
When searching for a repair service, make sure they have A+ certified technicians. Find out what warranties they offer and their terms of service. See if they offer an on-line or phone technical support.
Another thing to do when looking for a printer repair service is to search for any complaints or reviews of that business; check with the Better Business Bureau. Getting your printer fixed should not have to be frustrating and expensive. Just look for reputable repair shops in your area, and you will sure to be working in no time.
