People hold on to printers that are not working for many reasons. It can be intimidating to start the search for a new one, and it takes time. While these are common roadblocks, a faulty printer causes too many issues. Here are four reasons it’s time for a new printer.
1. Outdated Equipment
Dealing with your printer shouldn’t be a daily battle. If you are having trouble getting your machine to perform its basic duty, then it’s time to look for a new one. Other reasons your printer might be outdated is if cannot provide you with the page yield you need or hold your needed paper capacity.
The printers yield itself doesn’t change but what you needed when you first bought the machine is probably different from what you need now. If you can’t fix the problem with a higher yield cartridge, it’s time for a new device.
2. Poor Performance
Maybe your printer is working, but it’s unsatisfactory. You don’t need to keep a printer that delivers documents with streaky printing. Poor performance can also be about speed. If you have to wait forever for a print job, then it’s time for a new machine.
3. Software is Obsolete
People are constantly updating their computers and cell phones so it makes sense that at some point your printer technology will need to be updated. Repairs are not always an option if the printer is old enough to make the parts difficult to find.
4. Constant Maintenance
There are signs that your printer is on the verge of a breakdown. If you are always calling to have it serviced, you know the machine needs to be replaced. Other less obvious signs are a clicking/grinding sound, unsightly print jobs, and frequent paper jams.
These four reasons all point to the need for a new printer. If you have more questions about printer malfunctions and purchasing a new device, call us today!
