Printer Repair or Replace?

printer repair ann arbor
Are you trying to decide if your home or office printer is worth repairing?  

Does your printer still fit your needs, or do you think you need to buy a new one?

The right printer for your business can be a big expense. How do you know if it’s time to replace your printer? How long do inkjet printers last?

Here are our recommendations:

  • Generally, the average lifespan of an inkjet printer is around 3-5 years under normal usage. If you use the printer more frequently than average or if you’re using it for a business, you might find the life of your printer is shorter.
  • Inkjet printers have a lifespan on the lower end, while laser printers last a little longer. 
  • If you’re spending a lot of money on replacement parts for your printer, it might be a better investment to buy a new printer – low supply of replacement parts could be an ongoing issue.

Like cars, plumbing, or heating, it is difficult to find a printer repair center that can be counted on. If a machine is older or has a repair that would exceed the cost of replacement, we aren’t against telling you it's not worth the cost of fixing.
