Very few things are more frustrating than having your prints come out blurry, crooked or fuzzy. Whether they’re photos that you’re printing or a formal piece of documentation, the last thing you want is to have to print out dozens of copies until it works by some fate. At PCOK, we provide speedy printer support so that you don’t have to wait to get your printer up and working again. Our computer service technicians have narrowed down a few of the reasons that this could be happening. A few of these are great to check prior to calling us, but others will require the help of a professional.

Type Of Paper

The type of paper that you’re trying to print on could be what’s causing your distorted pages. Each printer is made to print on a certain type of material or a particular size. You should recognize the difference in paper size when you put the paper in the queue, but checking to see what type of paper works with your printer, or trying a different type of paper, will help you determine if this is what’s causing the problem.

Dirty Printheads

Your printer heads are the pieces of your printer that hold the characters that are then transferred to your piece of paper. When these are dirty, your images won’t be transferred as clearly as you’re hoping for. Most modern printers will have a means of cleaning the entire printer so that it is nice and fresh and ready for printing, however this could require replacement printheads in your printer. Determining what the instance is for your printer is where the help of our printer support will come in.

Low On Ink

For those of you with newer printers, this likely isn’t the case. However, for any printer that does use ink, this is one of the first places to look. When ink runs out or even runs low, images can become distorted, faded or fuzzy. This quick fix requires a mere stop at the store and quick replacement.

This issue calls for easy solutions, but that won’t be how every problem with your printer goes. When things feel hopeless and you start to get frustrated, contact PCOK. Our computer service technicians can handle any problem, no matter how big or small.
