More About Photo Processing Printers
Businesses and retailers have been taking advantage of commercial imaging and photo printing equipment for years, and self-service photo printing kiosks are made available to consumers in many convenient locations around the world. These integrated systems are very effective for turning digital images into professional-quality prints, and often offer other multifunctional capabilities like printing graphic reports, tickets, receipts, and other important documents. These devices are both convenient, practical, and easy to use for both businesses and individual consumers alike. They’re also much faster (not to mention more cost-effective) than choosing to outsource photo printing and document printing services to an external vendor.
Of course, a photo processing printing system involves more than just the printer itself. It also entails other integrated devices which can include a touchscreen, various inputs and ports, scanning equipment, and internal computer processing hardware and memory. In order for your photo processing printer to serve your needs well, each of these connected components must also be maintained in good working order.
Common Problems & Issues with Photo Processing Printers
A photo printing kiosk is a great service to provide to your customers, and there are other practical ways that owning photo processing printers can benefit your business or enterprise. But whenever there’s a problem with your photo processing system, that can frustrate your customers or put your business on hold in a hurry. What are some common issues that can arise with a commercial photo processing printer? Here’s what our experts have noted from their experience working on these units at AES:
If your photo printing jobs aren’t coming out right, then one of the most common culprits could be your print heads. Sometimes a good cleaning may be all that your print heads require. In other cases, the print heads might have become overly worn or have developed a more significant malfunction that requires attention. In cases like these, rebuilding – or possibly replacing – the print heads themselves could be your best solution.
Printer Jams and Clogs
If your photo print stock or other documents are starting to get stuck on a more regular basis, the issue might lie within your rollers, belts, and gears, which actually move the copy through the printer system. These are moving parts which will show wear over time, and if they aren’t properly maintained, you can end up with slow printing, jams, or more significant failures.
An issue that’s common to all electronics is the threat of infiltration by moisture, dirt, dust, oils, and chemicals. Over time, contaminants like these can find their way inside your printer unit and eventually cause damage to internal components, circuit boards, and electrical connections.
Printer Driver Errors
Sometimes your hardware seems to be working fine as far as you can tell, but the printer is still throwing up some seemingly inexplicable error messages. Whenever this happens, your first move should be to make sure all of your printer software drivers are up-to-date. If this still doesn’t fix the issue, then you should reach out to a service professional like AES.
You Simply Don’t Have the Parts or Tools
You may actually know what the problem with your photo processing printer is, but you simply don’t have the parts or tools – or the expertise – to fix it. This is when it’s really best to partner with an imaging repair professional who’s best-suited to address your issue effectively. Not only does AES have extensive experience in working with all sorts of photo printers, but we also maintain a stock of essential parts for repair.
