- do not wait
The first thing to keep in mind is really to clean and maintain your printer as much as you can. Like servicing a car, you shouldn’t wait until there’s something wrong with your machine before you decide to service it. Preventive maintenance will help you make sure it runs smoothly all the time.
- Use your printer often
Did you know that a printer that works often is more likely to work well? This means printing as much as you can, whenever you can instead of letting it gather dust.
- Handle with Care
When handling your printer, i.e. loading it with paper, ink, or simply cleaning it, be sure to handle it with care. Do not force anything and clean it with a soft cloth. You don’t want to accidentally break any part of it, especially its interior.
- Go to an authorized service center
If your printer breaks down and you can’t fix it yourself, it’s best to let the experts do the repair. Go to an authorized service center so that professionals can repair your machine and you can ensure that the best possible hands solve its problems.
If you have a Brother printer, there are over 170 Brother Authorized Service Centers nationwide.
