Don't set your printer on fire!

Newsletter Archive: Issue 7

Are you having printer issues? Don't set your printer on fire yet. Here are a few tips to help you fix some common issues with your printer.

Printer on fire

Printing takes too long

The higher the resolution, the slower your printer prints.

When you want speed over print resolution, select a print mode like Standard or Draft in your printer driver. Large files with complex images take longer for your printer to process and print than smaller, text-only files.

If your printer has minimal memory (base models often do) adding RAM can help speed up image processing.

If your printer is in its power saving mode, it will take extra time for it to "wake" before it's ready to print at its normal speed. For lengthy documents, printing the pages two-up will cut the page count in half.

If these suggestions do not help, then it's time to call the Carefree Service Team at (703) 385-1700.
