Not printing? Then you're not getting your work done


Once there was a time when printers were expensive pieces of equipment, and the ink cartridges were the most affordable part of the equation. As technology has improved, however, the cost of the actual printer has dropped, and the ink cartridge has become the largest expense.


A printer definition is any machine intended for printing text or images onto paper. As the printers themselves have become increasingly affordable, they are also becoming more complex, which means that they are intricate devices that must be produced cheaply to be competitive.


The most common printer troubleshooting questions and answers are related to problems with connectivity, print quality, paper feed, and trouble with the drivers for communication with computers.


If you need to get your printer back up and running quickly, the Experts on JustAnswer are always available to you, with no need to bring a bulky piece of equipment to a shop for simple fixes. And you approve payment for your solution only when you’re completely satisfied.
