Some common problems are either your printout will get stuck; your printer will slow down, continuously shows error etc. At this time, you thought of replacing your printer, but is it worth replacing a printer, or should you repair it? What do you say? Well, the information below will help you to come out of this situation. Let’s understand some points that you can keep in your mind before taking a final decision.
Factors to keep in mind before deciding to replace or repair your print device;
- While you are thinking of replacing or repair your printer. It is best to check the printer’s age, which means when the printer was released. E.g., if your printer is released seven-year back, then it may be challenging to find the parts, and if you find the part somehow, then it may be costlier than you expected.
- Most of the time, your old printer doesn’t support the latest firmware, whereas your works require it; it’s always best to purchase a new printer. Like our phones and laptops, printers also get upgraded from time to time.
- Most of the time, your current model had a low ppm, whereas a newer model available has high PPM and high quality, making your work more efficient. So, in that case, it’s better to spend more than the cost of repair.
- There are times when the repair can be done on-site after arranging the parts, whereas you may need a managed print service technician. You can compare your repairing cost, adding printer part cost plus labor charge with the cost of a new printer.
So, going through the points above, you can decide if it is worth repairing a printer? So, depending on your decision, if you want to buy a new printer, always compare the price of different printers to get the best price.
