  • Looking to save paper and ink? Make sure to only print the pages you need of your document.

  • Most printers will beep once or twice during or after initialization. If it beeps more than that or beeps constantly, it is telling you that something is wrong. Most printers beep when out of paper or out of ink.

  • Are your printer nozzles getting clogged? Try adding a humidifier to the room where you keep your printer.
