Printers are slowly making themselves essential in our everyday lives. In a world where time is of the essence, we cannot afford to be burdened with printer errors. These errors can cost us long hours of hours of time and money.
However, these are unavoidable and because of this, we have done the research for you. We have compiled a list of the most common LaserJet printers in order to guide you through your Epson LaserJet Printer.
1. The printer is not responding ...If your Epson LaserJet is just not responding, follow these few steps.
- a. First, check that you sent your print job to the correct printer. If this is not the issue, you need to look at your connection.
- b. If you are using a wireless model, make sure the printer and computer or device are both connecting to the same Wi-Fi signal. If they are not, switch them to the correct one, and you should be ok. If they are connected to the same, then restart the router, printer and computer or device. Check that they connect to the same network. Once all this is taken care of, you should be able to print.
- c. If you are using a wired model of Epson, make sure that all the wires connect properly. If all wires are connected, check for any wear or tear damage on the wires, as this may cause connection problems. If the wires all check out, then restart both the computer and the printer. You should now be able to print.
- d. If you are still having problems, with wired or wireless, you might need to update the printer driver. Over time, these become corrupt, or are outdated. To update your printer driver, find your printer model driver online. Download and install it, and restart both the computer and printer. You should now be able to start printing.
- e. If your printer is still not responding, you might have a long print queue. If the printer has too many print jobs coming into the print queue, it will slow down the printing process. In order to do this, access your printer from the computer control panel. Right click on the printer icon and click on “print queue.” Right click in the dialog box, and choose “cancel all documents.” Restart the printer and computer, and try printing one last time.
2. The notorious “paper jam” ...
All printers have the reoccurring “paper jam” issue. If the “paper jam” message is keeping you from sticking to your schedule, get ready to wipe it out!
First, check the printer from the inside to see where the jam is. If you can see the sheet, remove it carefully by pulling it slowly.
If there is no visible source for your paper jam, check the paper tray for any papers that might be causing the paper jam. If there is one. Pull it out slowly. If there is no paper there, then follow this by cleaning the printer. Open and check the printer for any bits of paper, lint or dust. Clean them out with a clean, moist cloth. Restart the Epson LaserJet Printer. Your printer should now be paper jam free.

Although LaserJet printers are known for printing at a very fast speed, do not be surprised when one of your print jobs takes too long to print. If your Epson LaserJet Printer is taking too much time for your schedule, you will have to make some adjustments. If you are printing simple text documents, change your printer settings from a high resolution to a lower one. In order to do this, access your printer through your computer’s Control Panel. Go to the Printer Properties option and then to the color management tab. Change it to grayscale and set the print speed to “fast” or “speedy” to get your Epson LaserJet Printerworking faster.
If you need a quality print and are out of time, you can set the time to a medium quality. This is a halfway point between time and quality.
