My sister is having an issue on the printer she bought two years ago. It does not print well. She brought it to the store where she bought it and the attendant told her that it needs new ink (black and colored) and needs some cleaning. The sister paid the amount of the inks and the cleaning. The sample print is nice so we thought that cleaning and new inks are the problem. However, after few months of using the problem is back again. Of course the sister is angry. To her the money she paid for the inks and cleaning is wasted.
The sister does not want to buy new printer because her printer still looks good. The only issue is that it does not print well. She decided to bring it to the other shop that is expert in printing issues. After checking the attendant told her that the printer needs new cartridge. It is a bit old and not in good condition. It requires replacement. At first the sister is hesitant of the suggestion but buying new one is more costly. She take the risk on the suggestion. The sister’s decision is worth it because the printer now prints really well. It looks like she is buying new printer. She can now print test papers and lesson plans continuously. No more jamming of bond papers.
A friend of mine came to me few days ago. She thought of buying printer for her nieces. She already picked the brand of the printer and asked my opinion about it. I told her that I am not an expert when it comes to this matter, but still I will give my opinion about the printer basing on the experienced my friend is having after buying the same printer. My younger brother bought the same printer for his printing business and said that the printer is not good. Well, the printer is less expensive, so it is expected that it won’t give good result in the long run.
After sharing those stories to my friend, she told me that she will look for another brand of printer. She will search for a good one that will last longer, longer enough till college days of her nieces. I also told her that brands is just a brands, the most important thing is how are you going to take good care of it. As long as you know how to take good care of it, I am pretty sure that it will last longer. Proper maintenance and checking it from time to time if the condition is still good is the most important things. If you know how to handle and take care of your belongs/stuffs, it will surely last longer than you expected. I hope that I am able to help my friend deciding on the brand of printing she wants to buy.
Years back, I have typing and printing business. But I stopped when I open small grocery store (sari-sari store) at home. It would be difficult for me to handle two businesses at once because I am also doing blogging stuffs. I first gave up my printing business since it is very slow compared to my small grocery store (sari-sari store). Unfortunately, after two years of handling my small store, I decided to close it up. I am sad about it because I have invested much to that business; however, it is not earning much because of competitors so no reasons to invest more when I earned less. I decided to focus on doing my blogging stuffs.
Just recently, the sister and I talked about opening the printing business again. This is because they have lots of printing job at school. And said, it would be best if we have our own printer and will do printing job at home and got paid by her as well as her co-teachers. Hearing the proposal makes me smile. And said, why not try it again. It would be best to have extra earning aside from earning online. I am checking the old printer that we have, but sad to say it does not work well, the ink cartridge gone dry. I tried to put ink and print one but did not run well. I guess I need to buy new printer to start the printing business. I hope that we will be able to buy new printer before classes’ starts.
If the sister did not asked me about the printer, I wouldn’t remember the old printer that we have. After I have my laptop, I put in the storage room the old desktop and the printer. I put the printer inside the box to make sure the rat won’t bite it. It was two years ago as far as I remember. After the sister done typing her school records, she asked me if I could get the printer because she needs to print the records to give it to the head teacher of the school where she is working.
I took the printer out of the box and start to connect it to the laptop. Before I start to print, I check first the ink cartridge and the printer’s condition. I try to print one copy first before doing it all. But sad to say, the printer eats the paper that I inserted. The paper stuck and it took us minutes to get the paper. The printing is not successful after several trying because the printer is no longer working well. I guess we need to buy new one or bring the printer to the repairman to have it fixed. If the payment is a bit high, I might as well buy a new printer because sometimes the kids also has assignments that needs print out from the internet.
