  • Use authentic/genuine ink – The quality of your ink will depend on how long your printer can live. It’s like the gas to a car. Whenever you use a second rate ink, it will definitely take its toll in the coming days, weeks, or months. 
  • Use good quality paper in printing – Do not be harsh on your device. It cannot feed thick paper. Careful or it may damage the paper puller wheel. Also avoid using bent or torn paper
  • Keep it clean – Wipe the accumulated dust in the printer engine. Also, if there are still torn papers left inside, make sure to take them all off
