Don't you just hate it when your computer is having problems? It could be running super slow or you might see an error message that won't go away.

That can be frustrating, especially if you're working on a deadline. Fortunately, many times you can restart your computer, and the problem disappears. Or you may just know how to fix it because you've been using computers for so many years.

But what happens when your printer isn't working? We're not talking about paper jams, or when you're running low on ink. We're talking about a hard-to-fix problem.

When this occurs, you might see its lights flash or turn from green to amber. Or, you could see a message on its screen, such as "ink system failure."

The better solution is to prevent these problems from happening to begin with. All you need is to know a few preventive maintenance procedures. Here are some techniques that will help extend the life of your printer.
