Scary Printer Problems Be Gone!

Scary Printer Problem #1

Bubble, bubble, someone’s in trouble – who forgot to order new toner!?

You might feel like you need to cast a spell over your coworkers to succeed in someone else ordering toner when they replace the last one… Luckily we have an alternative: with DocSol, you can opt-in to automated toner and never have to worry about remembering to place an order again. We’ll add our toner management software to your copier to keep track behind the scenes and automatically send you fresh toner when your machine is running low – no magic needed! ✨

Scary Printer Problem #2

What’s scarier than things that go bump in the night? When something goes bump in the copier…

Uh, oh! Paper misfeeds certainly are one to give you a fright! No need to fear, you can attempt to clear the jam in three steps:

  1. Take a deep breath: as you are working with delicate components, remaining calm is key
  2. Look at the touch panel to show you where the paper is stuck and how to get there
  3. Slowly and carefully remove the paper: make sure to have nothing in your hands and use the green guides to access between parts


Sometimes it takes a little more than faith, trust, and pixie dust to clear a paper misfeed. If you can’t reach some pieces or you think you’ve got it all but the printer says otherwise, request our friendly Service Team online at our Service Hub. One of our brilliant technicians will appear in no time to fix your troubles.

Smudges and splotches and lines – oh my!

Now, these are truly the stuff of nightmares – smudges, splotches, and lines running across your prints.

No need to panic, your machine likely needs a good clean on the part causing the problem. Our technicians are so experienced it’s scary, so you know you are in good hands.
