This can be caused by age as all technology has a limited life span. However, it can also be caused by common mistakes made by people who handle the printer. There are common causes for printers to break but also mistakes that people make that mean more repairs. It is best that you know what they are and how to prevent the mistakes.
Most common reasons for canon printers breaking
There are many reasons for why canon printers stop working. Some of these reasons are pretty straight forward while others are a bit more complicated.
- Paper misfeed is one of the most common reasons for a printer to stop working. This problem is when the paper becomes caught in the mechanisms of the printer. This causes a jam and the printer will not work.
- Malfunctioning printer connections can be a major problem. The cable that connects your printer to your computer needs to be working correctly. To check this you may need to change the cable. The problem may be from the cable or the connection ports.
- Printer driver errors will cause your printer to print strange characters. Drivers can be reinstalled to fix this problem.
- If you have an inkjet printer and prints come out smudged then you should check the utility on the printer which cleans and aligns the printer heads.
