How to Prevent a Paper Jam

iStock_000013833347SmallDuring periods of high humidity, the humidity not only dampens your opened paper supplies, it can affect the components in the equipment. You know you have a paper jam when you notice light or blurry prints. To prevent the problem, keep unwrapped paper in a Tupperware container to keep the moisture, dirt and dust out. In addition, use the drum dry/cleaning mode for your cycle at the beginning of each day if you have it. This will help to clean up problems within the machine.

Another aspect that business owners often neglect is paper quality. Avoid buying cheap paper. As it has been stated, you will often get what you pay for. We had one client who thought he bought a lemon for a copier because it kept jamming. However, when we inspected the paper he used, we discovered that the paper he bought had tiny holes in it that was causing paper jams.

While not all paper jams can be prevented, you can take precautionary steps to reduce it. For further information, contact our New York City company. We would love the opportunity to work with you.
