What To Buy and Not Buy For Your Printer

Posted on February 25, 2010. Filed under: Fix Your Printer Problems |

Are you having printing problems?  Buying the right stuff for your printer may fix the problem.

Never buy used ink cartridge refill kits. These kits don’t use the right kind of ink, the ink is often thinner and may leak through the hole made by the syringe. They also won’t replace the printhead which comes with a new ink cartridge so quality will suffer

Only buy new ink cartridges from the printer manufacturer. If you have an HP printer, buy HP ink cartridges.

Do not refill toner cartridges for laser printers. The printout quality will be poor, the drum will not be replaced as needed. Replacing the toner cartridges with proper, name-brand toner cartridges solves most laser printer quality problems.

Always recycle your inkjet and toner cartridges, but don’t buy recycled cartridges.

Paper- for best results use the kind of paper designated by the printer, the print quality will be the best and paper jams less frequent or non-existent

Labels- be careful using labels- make sure you use the kind made for printers. Manufacturers that make printers have templates you can download from their website ( that can be used in Microsoft Word and make it easy to print labels.

Transparencies- only use the kind of transparencies that work with your kind of printer- you risk ruining your printer if you use the wrong kind (it could melt to the inside of your printer permanently).
