Preparing your printer for the holiday power-down

SYDNEY, Australia -

Preparing your printer for the holiday power-down

Ensuring that your printer is powered down properly before any period of inactivity is crucial. Getting this fairly simple task correct may also ensure that your printer fires up again when it's time to start work in 2016!

Here is GJS' three-step guide to preparing your printer for the holiday power-down:

  1. Follow any and all of your printer's shut-down/storage maintenance procedures (refer to the printer operating manual);
  2. Store your inks and printer within the recommended conditions; 15 - 25°C, 35-80% relative humidity with no condensation; and
  3. If your printer remained powered on during storage mode, it is recommended to use a UPS or surge protector – after all summer is storm season here in Australia!
