How Printer Ink Is Equally Distributed For All In One Printers

2011-09-02

It is important that everything that you print from your all in one printers look good. Printer ink distribution will ensure that the ink is properly distributed across the page in the desired viscosity that you require. A draft print for a copy may be okay, but if you are printing signage or photos, then you want to make sure that it is a higher quality.

Printer ink distribution is based upon pressure within the cartridge. A good seal on each cartridge is crucial so that they flow from the printer head as they were designed. If there is not enough pressure or the cartridge has an air bubble, it can greatly affect how your printing looks when it comes out of your printer.

Many people choose to save money by having their existing cartridges refilled. Regardless of whether you have a color cartridge that encompasses all of the colors or separate color cartridges for magenta, cyan and yellow, this can save you some money. The problem with this, however, is that if it is not done correctly, you won't get the equal distribution in your prints because the pressure is inconsistent.

There are a few ways to get the equal distribution on all in one printers corrected. Many of the printers have a very advanced troubleshooting program installed on them. You can run these in order to re-align the heads and help to clean the heads to remove any build up that may be inside of them. Once everything is re-aligned and the heads have been cleaned, it is usually enough to get the distribution of the ink equalized.

When you make a copy of something as opposed to printing it directly from the computer, there are going to be some discrepancies in the print quality. When you copy something, though, it should be evenly distributed across the page. If only one side is coming out, there could be two reasons.

One, there is a problem with the track that the printer heads are sitting on. If it is slightly warped, the pressure of the heads won't be the same across the entire sheet of paper. The second is that you have not placed the sheet of paper on the scanner properly. If you are trying to make a copy from a book, it can look like it is the printer's fault but in reality, it is because the entire sheet is not set on the glass at the same level. A weight of some sort placed on top of the book can correct the problem.

Ultimately, high level ink cartridges and regular maintenance of all-in-one printers will ensure proper delivery of ink.
