large format printer in useWhether it’s an entry level CAD plotter or a top of the range photographic model, we recommend 3 simple things to follow

  • Surge protection – always protect your power supply against dips, spike and cuts in power.  Printers really don’t like these and it can be catastrophic, affecting your printer’s main board (it’s brain) which is very costly to replace.
  • Use it! Make sure you use your machine regularly – we recommend at least once a week.  Printers thrive on regular use and this alone can help to avoid blockages and problems. If you only use black, make sure you run a small colour print every so often.  Remember that the ink is water based liquid sitting in small tubes and fired through tiny printhead nozzles, so keeping it flowing is essential.
  • Follow the instructions – your machine will want to go through small cleans every so often to keep itself clean so let it go through these processes.  Follow the on screen prompt and check the user manual for essential maintenance.
