Laser Printer Resource is pleased to devote today’s blog entry to printer repair. Last week we talked about the time and cost benefits of keeping your printer functioning through regular maintenance. This week we will talk about common problems and basic printer repairs.
Imagine. You’re all ready to print out a much needed action memo or the last minute report for the big meeting that afternoon. You hit print without a thought, confident that your printer will seamlessly go to work, and then it happens: squeaking, groaning, and a flashing light. You swear under your breath, knowing that that meeting might not go as smoothly as you thought.
While it may seem like a tragic event to you, at Laser Printer Resource printer repair is a major part of a typical day.
You might think that by purchasing a high quality printer such as a Lexmark, Cannon, Epson, Samsung, Toshiba, or Hewlett-Packard that you can avoid the dreaded printer repairs. Sadly, you are mistaken. Printer repair and service go hand and hand with printer ownership. Let me explain why.
Printers, especially laser printers, have a hard life. Their existence is defined by the same repetitive motions over and over the same parts: their rollers. The rollers grip the paper and move it smoothly through your printer. That is, until the rollers are worn so smooth and hard that they begin to squeak and groan – a precursor to paper pick-up errors and paper jams. The good news is that most rollers are inexpensive and readily available in the kits of our certified technicians.
With repairs being inevitable, you might think it is a good idea to save money by purchasing cheap or low quality remanufactured (recycled) toner. After all, if the toner turns out to be defective, it did not cost that much anyway. But there are hidden costs to using low quality toner. Cheaply made compatible toner cartridges often leak, slowly but insidiously, into the rollers.
When your documents print out with a gray afterimage, “ghosting,” or are streaked with black lines, the toner cartridge is often at fault, and it’s time to call for a printer repair technician; the money you thought saved on cheap toner has just disappeared into an expensive service call.
However, at Laser Printer Resource, we guarantee our toner. We are so confident of its quality that we will not only replace and ship any problematic compatible cartridges free of charge, we will provide a FREE service call and cleaning if our recycled toner has caused any printer malfunctions. We are committed to high quality products and excellent customer service at Laser Printer Resource.
Last week we addressed all the benefits of consistently scheduling routine printer maintenance to avoid costly printer repairs. At Laser Printer Resource we understand that for some that ship had already sailed, and that is why we are pleased to be able to offer cost effective, high quality printer repair by certified technicians in addition to printer maintenance and a wide selection of high quality, guaranteed ink and toner cartridges.
