Printers-A Marvel


, ,

It seems like no matter what you do, you’ll always have printer problems. The more cutting edge the technology, the more easily it seems to break. It always happens right when you really need something printed, and the only thing you know about fixing them is turning them on and off and maybe resetting the cartridge. Maybe sometimes this works, but the printer keeps breaking with increasing frequency. At this point, there’s nothing you can do. You need to call in the experts.

It should be no big surprise that printers are fickle. Think about what they do— taking digital files and turning them into physical, readable images on a page. There are so many moving parts involved to make this happen, it’s almost a marvel when they do work.

As you may imagine, the earliest printers derived from printing press technology. Metal rods shaped like typing characters dipped in ink and pressed against paper to create high-quality prFeatured imageints. The first “computer printer” used number rods attached to Charles Babbage’s difference machine, a 19th century precursor to the calculator.

Into the 20th century, typewriters were the most common tool for putting text on paper, and most computer printers into the 1980s used similar “dolly-wheel” technology. For faster printing, people used line printers, which printed entire lines at a time. These systems still used character shaped rods. Dot matrix systems emerged for mixing text with graphics, but the results were very low quality.

In 1984, HP released the first LaserJet, and the following year, Apple improved their LaserWriter system. These advancements made it possible for consumers to do high quality, mixed media printing from home. In 1988, the DeskJet made this technology even more affordable. By 2000, high quality printers cost less than one hundred dollars, and they became commonplace at home and in the office.

Laptop on the Fritz? Our Certified Technicians Fix Printers and Laptops and Everything in Between

Early this year – according to WRAL in Raleigh, NC – a judge there ordered a computer repair business to pay dozens of customers $10,425 in restitution and $455,000 in civil penalties. In this particular case, customers’ computers were returned with parts missing from them or not returned at all. This is an extreme example of what can go wrong when people who are unqualified and untrustworthy are hired to fix your computer. It does show the importance of finding computer repair techs that are qualified and can service many different components of your computer system. Laserjet Repair Co, Computer & Printer Repair has a team of technicians who are more than simple copier or printer techs; they are certified specialists who have attended classes led by HP instructors. They specialize in laser printer repair and can get your system up and going whether you are receiving those indecipherable printer errors or printing corrupted images or having any other problems.

Although printers are considered a ‘peripheral’ to a computer system – just like speakers or routers – anyone who has ever had a printer malfunction when an important document needed to be produced would probably disagree. Whether they are used in the home or the office, printers are an integral part of our any computer system. This is why it is important when something goes wrong with them, that someone who is qualified can intervene and get your busy life back on track.

Of course, other things can and do go wrong with a computer system apart from the printer. This is why finding someone who can service your entire computer system – not just the printer – is so critical. Here at Laserjet Repair Co we specialize in repairing everything from laptops to desktops to printers to fax machines.

By not choosing the right people—ones who can repair your entire system—you can lose personal information, such as family photos and passwords as well as time. Choose wisely and save that time, save that all important data and protect your investment by selecting people who specialize in printer repair in Ann Arbor, give Laserjet Repair Co a call today.
