Do you know how to take care of your printer? As you may know, this is a basic piece of the printing equipment, but a poor maintenance can make it suffer or even damage it. However, we don’t want to miss the opportunity to say that it is important to take care of our printer and to follow some guidelines of maintenance. In other articles of our blog you will find them.
That said, we want to focus on the toner. What is the toner? Even though we tend to call toner to any piece that contains ink, in fact it is the fine powder that adheres to the paper through electrostatic attraction. It is, moreover, one of the most important parts of the laser printers. Learning to take care of it is not difficult, we just need to apply some basic steps to not risk the printer, because it is a fragile and essential piece for the good functioning of the printer.
The first thing you need to know is that you need to pay attention when manipulating the toner. You need to remove the toner slowly from the printer, place it on a black and white sheet of paper and try to hoover the remaining powder. After placing it, be careful and if you want to remove it, avoid the exposure to the light.
Sometimes, when we print, you’ll see that some characters appear with a lighter colour. Do not remove it or shake it quickly. Bear in mind that it is necessary to know where the problem comes from to provide the best solution possible.
Another way to keep the toner in perfect conditions is to store it in a fresh place, avoiding hot spaces. This piece of advice is also applicable to printers. So, if we have our printer near a radiator, we should move it to another place.
And please, remember that original and compatible toner cartridges can be purchased on the wide catalogue of WebCartridge. We will be delighted to receive all your doubts and advise you.
