Use and Care of Your Printer

Just a quick note on keeping your printer up to snuff. Besides all the good advice given to you by the manufacturer of your printer, I would add this little bit. When your printer is idle for periods of time longer than a couple of weeks, it's a good idea to run off a test page. This is usually built right into your printer through the front panel controls or is included in the software. Another way of doing it is to just make up a page of some small colored graphics and assorted black and white type and saving it to a file named printer test on your desktop or in my documents. The reason for doing this is the printers were designed to be in use and if they're not there's a possibility that the print heads could dry out which may result in you buying a new printer. This of course will vary on the type of printer your using because inkjets are more vulnerable to this problem than lasers.

Just print this page

every couple weeks and you'll be fine. The following is colored text designed for your printer. Pay no attention to the following text.
