Troubleshooting is done when your printer stops working suddenly. Troubleshooting requires critical thinking and it is useful to consider the common experiences. The basic step is to start from the simplest and most probable possible problems. Each component in the printer should be checked and substituted with a good component to rule out the suspect. This process is called serial substitution. Try to execute every possible solution to troubleshoot a printer problem. If the problem gets fixed, the other steps need not be executed. We can also use a systematic checklist, troubleshooting procedure or a flowchart to fix the issue. Some steps that can be used to troubleshoot most print issues. The first one in that list is to check if the driver software is up-to-date. If the driver is not updated, then try to download the updated software. You can set your system to automatically download the updates for your driver. If not, uninstall the driver and reinstall the updated one. The last resort is to reset the printer to factory settings. You can execute this using the default printer’s control panel settings or you can perform a hard reset. Before you want to hard reset, save all print job and make sure that is is the only option left to fix the issue.
