Cartridge and toner issues

Most of the time, cartridge and toner issues occur because the photocopier has not been correctly set up. Problems may arise if you do not use the right toner cartridge for your specific printer model, as most copy machines require a specific type of toner. If you do not know how to use an incompatible cartridge, your print quality will suffer.

Low, empty or malfunctioning toner issues can also cause your photocopier to crash. If your toner is low or empty, a simple replacement may solve any problems. If it doesn’t, this means that there is a malfunctioning issue due to either a manufacturer’s error or compatibility complications. In this instance, talk to a trusted copy specialist about what type of toner or cartridge you need-they will be able to help you determine which type of toner is most compatible with your machine.

Wrinkled pages

Wrinkled or wrinkled pages out of the copier machine are usually due to worn out feed and out rollers that cause sticking or jamming. You can either purchase replacement trays or hire a copy specialist to repair the fuser assembly to fix this problem. While it may look like it’s just a case of some paper being stuck or overloaded in your machine, wrinkled pages are often a sign that your copier has endured too much wear and tear to function properly.

If wrinkled pages are not the only issue you’re experiencing with your photocopier, consider whether it may be time to rent or buy a new machine. Technology changes quickly, and ongoing repairs and maintenance of an outdated machine can be costly. Upgrading your office equipment can sometimes be a better investment to meet your evolving printing and copying needs.

Random spots across your copies

Nobody wants their professional work documents to look like a dot-to-dot. If your printing works out copies with random spotting across them, it could be due to the debris on the copy mirror. You can fix this by cleaning a copy of the glass and a mirror. Most of the copying manuals will provide some advice on how to proceed with the cleaning process and suggest which products to use.

Random spotting across your copies is, however, a clear indication that your office copier needs a little more TLC than it does. Since photocopiers are such an essential tool for completing daily office tasks, it is vital to invest in regular service and maintenance to extend their lifespan.
