When Printer Repair Isn’t Worth It
Like most items, brand new printers only come with a one year warranty. If your printer is out of warranty, and something happens, the best thing to do is call a professional. Simply google “printer repair near me” and a list of potential companies will appear. Begin by calling them and asking if they repair your type of printer. More than likely, if the company will work on your printer, they will need more information so have the error code (if any) and/or details ready for them to determine what the issue is and how it can be resolved. It seems that most printers need a maintenance kit, drum replacement, new rollers, or a transfer belt when issues arise.
After the printer technician has evaluated the issue and gives you an estimate on the cost to fix it, you have a decision to make. Is it worth fixing? Sometimes the cost of repairing a printer outweighs the cost of the actual printer. In this case, you should not waste your money fixing it. If you decide to purchase a new printer, you may want to ask your local printer repair company what type of printer you should buy. They are very knowledgeable of what printers break constantly, which are more efficient, etc. They will steer you in the right direction and you will end up with a product that suits your needs!
