Inkpot

Do not leave the toner cartridge in the air for a long time as the ink will dry out. With the laser printer ink tank, do not leave it out in the light, but put it in a black plastic bag and tie it up. If the printer will not be used for a long time, remove the toner cartridge and store it in a sealed container.

Cleaning the machine

The printer should be cleaned at least once every three months, so the ink dust accumulated inside the machine should be cleaned. Specific cleaning methods for each model are usually specified with illustrations in the user manual that comes with the machine (or ask a company specializing in printer maintenance, refilling cleaning ink).

Do not turn off suddenly

With color inkjet printers, do not turn off the machine as soon as the print is finished, but wait for the machine to have enough time to cover the printhead to prevent the ink from drying out.
