How to care for your inkjet printer

As whit any other piece of electronic equipment, some things need to be done to get the most of your inkjet printer.
Regulary maintenance and cleaning is something that is given but sadly enough many people dosent do it and instead have to spend money on a new printer since the old dosent work that well.

One of the worst enemies to any piece of electronic hardware is dust, and it tend to get in everywhere. If dust starts to get in your printer it would cause poor printing and paper jams. One way to stop the dust to get to the printer, is to use a cover over the printer.

When you turn the printer off it seats the printer head into a very special position before it completley shut down to protect the printer. When using a power strip it turns the power on and off, and dosent allow the printer to reseting the head in the correct position, But in the long way
it might hurt the printer more then its usefull.
