How To Take Care of HP Printers
If you own a HP printer then you will know how important it is to maintain it effectively so that you get the best use out of it for many years to come. To help you achieve this, we have come up with some clear advice that is simple to follow and will help you to get the best results time after time.
Keep Your Printer Maintained
The first step that you should take when taking care of your printer is to run the maintenance programme that you will find in the printer settings. This programme should run every 3 – 6 months and will clean all the internal components of your printer and ensure that the printer head is clear of any blockages. Printers clean themselves using ink and so making sure that you have the best ink for HP printers will mean that it is kept in optimum condition (check out our printer ink section below).
Clean Your Printer Regularly
You’d be forgiven for believing that because you run the internal cleaning cycle regularly that you don’t need to worry about cleaning your printer in any other way. This is not correct! To keep your printer in perfect condition, take a dry microfibre cloth and wipe it down once a week to remove any dust, dirt, or grime. Only ever wipe the external parts and never reach into the printer to move or wipe things that are hard to reach.
Keep It Clear
If you live in a busy, messy household then it can be easy to stack your printer up with things that need to be put away and then forget that you put them there. The problem with stacking things on top or next to printers is that it can stop them from working effectively and can cause irreparable damage. Make sure to keep your printer clear so that you can be confident that will keep working no matter how much you send to print.
Top Up Your Ink Regularly
Our final piece of advice is about ink replacement. For example, if you were heading out to buy a HP 63 Ink in Canada from the local store, then you will pay a significant amount of money to get genuine ink for your printer. The con in this is that genuine ink is not as good as ink from a specialist ink provider. Opting for replacement ink will not only save you a lot of money but will result in better quality prints and longer lasting cartridges, just make sure that you shop around to find the best ink specialist before you spend your cash.

Get the cleaning cloth out, run the maintenance programme and place your HP ink replacement order with a company like Smart Ink. Not only will your printer reward you with clearer, long-lasting prints but it will keep working long beyond the time you expected. What are you waiting for? Get started now!
