Basic printer usage guidelines
The printer and printers are basic computer peripherals. Models available today are easy to install and use. If you have a printing unit at home or in the office, just follow these simple printer usage guidelines and optimize your printer performance.
Always remember to print in black and white using a black print cartridge. Color cartridges allow excellent printing, but result in faster cartridge ink depletion.
If you are not printing a complete document, always select the part you want to print. You can do this by copying the content you want to print to a separate document that you can then print. If you need to print a few consecutive pages from a large document, mention the page range in the Print dialog box before entering the print command.
The printing paper used for printing should always be a good condition. Using folded or wet paper may cause jams. Also check that the printer is set to the correct type for the type of paper you are using. This results in a big difference in print quality
If for some reason the print job assigned to the unit is not completed, it remains in the queue. This document starts printing when the machine is turned on again. However, if the print unit has a large number of print commands, the machine may jam. To resolve this issue, click Start – Printer and Faxes – now double-click the printer icon to open the print queue. This displays all the documents waiting to be printed. Simply right-click the document you want to delete and delete the print command.
There are times when the printer turns off. To reset the printer, go to the Start menu, and then click Printers and Faxes. The printer will now be visible. For example, if you are using an Epson printer and printers, the printer icon on the page will mention the printer name. Right-click on this Epson printer and printers icon and select "Set as Default" from the menu that appears. Close all windows and continue printing.
