Why is a proper printer and scanner setup necessary?
A printer serves as a primary output device for taking printouts of your important and essential documents and photos.
On the other hand, a scanner serves as a primary input device to scan your important documents and photos and save them on your computer for future needs. You may also scan a document and take a printout of the document at a later stage.
If you install a printer or a scanner, it will begin to function properly and handle the aforesaid purposes well enough. A bad installation may result in junk prints and scan, or no prints or scans at all. Sometimes, when the printing or scanning driver fails, it destroys the essential connection between the computer and the printer or scanner
Therefore, you need to perform a clean installation of the printer or the scanner. Here at Geek Squire, we handle all these necessary tasks with full professionalism and provide you with a solid foundation for taking prints or making scans of your important documents and photos.
How to choose a perfect printer for yourself?
In the modern world of technology, there are various types of printers available at your disposal. Starting from single-function printers to sophisticated multifunctional printers, they help you in getting your job done at various levels.
Single-function printer: A single-function printer is simply a printer that can only handle printing jobs that are issued from your computer. They do not have a separate scanning bed or a scanner to scan your documents and photos and upload them on your computer.
Multi-function printer: These printers can do it all scan, print, and even make copies of your documents and photos. Although they can do all input and output services, it is important to note that they come in a much bulkier size as compared to a single-function printer. Therefore, it requires additional space to fit in.
Printers also come in various ink-installation types. The simplest of them is called an inkjet printer where the printer functions by spraying ink on the paper by using printheads. Then comes the ink tank printers. They are similar to inkjet printers, but their refill system is different. They have big tanks where you can fill the ink and it will use printhead to spray the ink on the paper during the printing process. The last type of printer is called laser printer, where the printout is done based on laser technology. These printers are the most efficient in terms of ink conservation. However, they are mostly black-and-white printers and color laser printers are highly expensive.
