How to Quickly Fix Poor Print Quality from Your Printer

We’ve all been there – you press the print button, go make coffee while the printer is working its magic, and return a few minutes later only to find that your document doesn’t look very impressive. Poor print quality is a very common problem that frustrates us even under the best of circumstances. Thankfully, here at Ink Cartridge World, our experts have some quick and easy tips to help you get off to a flawless print.

1. Clean the printer

If white lines appear on the page, this could indicate that the printer head, nozzles, or other components are dirty or clogged. Laser printers require regular cleaning to prevent the buildup of dust and toner particles. It is best to refer to your printer user guide for steps on how to clean your printer. Alternatively, turn off the printer, remove components such as toner and drum, and grab a clean paintbrush, or use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, and gently remove dirt and dust. Inkjet printers are self-cleaning, so be sure to check your user guide to learn how to set this up for quick and easy maintenance.

2. Choose the right paper

Cheap paper is often the key factor in poor print quality. Rougher textures create higher dust levels, which can affect print performance over time. Choosing high-quality paper will help reduce these printing defects. For inkjet printers, make sure you have the correct paper selected in the printer software, especially for photo printing – this will make a huge difference.

3. Adjust print settings

If you notice that images or text on your document are blurry and the ink is bleeding, this could be a sign of oversaturation, which can be resolved by increasing the print speed. Instead, the page may appear faded—an indication that the print speed needs to be reduced to increase ink saturation. Make sure your printer is set to print at high resolution to improve print quality. Keep in mind that it is nearly impossible to print out the exact same colors as they appear on the screen. You can adjust print speed, color resolution, and quality settings in the Advanced Properties dialog box on your computer. Be sure to print a test page to check the quality before printing the final document.

4. Keep calm

Poor print quality might occur when the printer is placed in a hot, humid area. If possible, keep the printer in a cool environment, away from other equipment that may generate excessive heat, and away from windows with high heat and humidity. For best performance, refer to the user guide for recommended operating temperature conditions.

5. Talk to an expert

Following these quick tips will hopefully help keep you and your prints looking their best.
