Getting the Ink Cartridges You Need

Most people groan when they even think about ink cartridges. They are expensive, you need to be careful that you get the right ones and you have to go out of your way to get them so that you have them on hand so you never run out completely. Yet, getting ink cartridges doesn’t have to be this painful. Instead, you can work with a provider who will ensure that you always have the printer products and supplies that you need to ensure that you can always print when you need to.

 You can order your ink cartridges online so that they are delivered right to your doorstep. No need to go out and hunt down the specific cartridges that you need, instead you can simply place an order and the supplies can be delivered to you. Ordering online will not only make it all easier, but you might find that it is much more affordable than the prices that you have been paying at nearby office stores. This method of purchasing simply makes sense because it is faster, more convenient and perhaps even cheaper.

Update Your Firmware

I'm not sure how many times I've been asked to help problem solve some printer, MFP or similar technology.  I'm often the 2nd or 3rd person at the site.  Others have tried to resolve, and failed.  When I arrive I go back to the basics:

 1.Is it plugged in

2.Is it turned on

3.Does it have the latest firmware

4.Is it using the latest drivers / patches

Countless times the answer to #3 & #4 is "nope".  I fully appreciate that firmware is not the answer to everything.  I will say that it fixes lots of problems and most importantly, if you have to do it in order to escalate anything with any manufacturer so you should do it anyways.  BUT only do it if you are having issues, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".  

 I'm still shocked that those in IT don't check this on a regular basis.  I know your different, but I'm sure you know someone who this resembles ;-).

 So my tip: When you run into a problem.  Before you call anyone, check and do steps 1-4.  I, and many others, thank you.

A printer or copier machine is an indispensable part of an office environment, and one of the most frequently used pieces of equipment. It can also be somewhat costly in its requirements though, especially if you tend to go through ink or toner cartridges quickly.
