FAQs

We have the answers to all your printer questions

Can my out-of-warranty printer be repaired?

Instead of throwing away broken equipment, simply have it repaired at a lower cost. For example, a company like MeiMag Electronics provides onsite or carry-in printer repair services. Apart from repairing damaged printers and supplying replacement parts, we also service your equipment to ensure that print quality does not degrade over time.

How long does a printhead last?

Printheads are tiny nozzles found in printers that fire tiny ink droplets that form the overall image of the print. They do tend to wear off and become dirty over time. However, it is reasonable to expect your printhead to last between one and two years, although some printheads may last slightly longer.

What causes a print head to fail?

One of the most common causes of printhead failure is that they have been idle for an extended period, allowing ink to clog the line and nozzles.

How do I fix my printer ink not flowing?

There are several reasons why ink is not flowing through the cartridge, even though there is plenty of ink. Infrequent usage is the most common cause of this. If you do not use your printer at least once a week, the cartridge can dry out and become clogged. Printing more frequently or performing regular cleans and ink tests to ensure the nozzles remain clean can help to reduce this. A second common problem occurs when the cartridge is not stored correctly in the warehouse or at home. Maintain the cartridge in an upright position. When installed, this keeps the sponge moist near the print head and allows for proper capillary ink movement. Always keep your printer in a temperature-controlled environment, as the temperature can affect the performance of your ink cartridges. Simply keep them in a cool, dark location.

What is the average life of a printer?

In general, the lifespan of a printer is only three to five years. Of course, it can last longer if properly maintained and checked regularly. But nothing lasts forever. Your printer needs to be replaced for various reasons, including a need for an upgrade in printing performance or simply because it has been damaged.

Do you need a computer for a 3D printer?

Your 3D printer does not require a connection to your computer to function. However, a computer is required to load the 3D print designs onto it.

Are 3D printers worth it for home use?

Getting a 3D printer for home use is definitely worthwhile. There is a learning curve, but once mastered, you can produce high-quality prints that can be used for prototyping, repairing household items, etc. However, 3D printers and filaments may be costly, and you will need to learn how to design models and even troubleshoot the printer, which may cause you to abandon it.
