How to solve Printer and Scanner problems

Printers and scanners are our great allies and silent work partners, always willing to make our work easier and more productive, until at the most unexpected moment they stop responding.

In these cases the normal thing is to lose nerves, but to avoid panic one needs to contact at printer and scanner tech support number. Below are the most common errors in most brands of printers.

The printer does not turn on.

The first thing you should do is check the condition of the cable that connects to the power supply. You can disconnect it from both parts and reconnect it in case it has loosened. If it is not the first time this problem occurs with the cable it is a good time to call Canon’s technical service and have it replaced by a better one.

If it is not a cable problem, check that the power button is not stuck and that it is working normally.

The device does not recognize the printer.

Check if the problem is caused by the USB cable, and if the cable or connector is damaged, replace them. If the printer is wireless, you should check that the network does not experience problems. On the other hand, the problem could arise from the printer driver, which is outdated or absent. To fix it, search the Internet for the latest Windows or Mac driver for your printer model and download it.

Error message or alarms.

If the printer has a screen, read the message shown on it and follow the instructions. If instead of the screen, the printer warns of error by bells or LED warnings, consult the printing manual to know what type of problem refers to each frequency of alarms.

The print appears blurred or smeared.

This problem may be due to the fact that the choice of paper was not appropriate, you can adjust this before printing, setting a low quality for text documents or uploading it for photos and graphic impressions.

When replacing the consumable the printer still does not print.

In this case, remove the cartridge that has just been replaced, turn off the printer, turn it on again and install the cartridges again, first removing the protective strip they contain.

If this does not work, you may have to reset the printer. Search the Internet for your printer model and how you should reset it.

The printer software does not work properly.

If the software is causing problems, you should reinstall it on your computer. First, uninstall the software package in the control panel, restart the computer, visit the printer manufacturer’s website, and install the latest version of the software.

It is possible that if you uninstall the printer software, you can continue printing with the basic default value that incorporates your device.
