By automating tasks, scheduling updates, and helping you implement best practices in your print environment, managed print can help your workflows stay sleek and efficient.

Managed print is a great solution, but it doesn't address those print pains you have right now--or can it? Here are a few simple tips to help you out!

Problem: Paper jams

Paper jams are generally a result of paper being loaded incorrectly or debris interrupting the print process. First, find out where the jam is, then open the machine and gently remove the jammed paper. It's best to do a "test print" before jumping back into your task, just to make sure you've solved the problem.

Problem: Low-quality prints

Blotches, lines, smudges--oh my! Check your printer's cartridges for jams or buildup--and remember that a little printer maintenance goes a long way.

Problem: Failed prints

If you're hitting print and getting no results, make sure to check these things:

  • that you're connected to the right printer;

  • that the paper, ink, and toner levels aren't the issue;

  • and that the printer is plugged in.
