My ink cartridge is new, but it won't print, why is that? Verified
New ink cartridges always come with a sticker on the print head, preventing that they dry out inside the packaging. Remove this sticker to make sure ink can come out the cartridge.

I want to print something full-page, but whatever I do, there will always remain a white edge. Why is that? Verified
Most printers are not able to print borderless, because the printer needs a place to hold the paper. Because of this there will always be a white edge.

What is the difference between an inkjet and a laser printer? Verified
The biggest difference between these two types of printer is the technology. An inkjet printer places extremely small droplets of ink on the paper. Because the ink is liquid, the printhead can dry out over time. Regular printing is needed to prevent this. A laser printer applies toner (black or coloured powder) to the paper. The powder can't dry out, making regular printing unneccesary. Also, on average laser printers work faster than inkjet printers.

The printed documents are crooked, what can I do? Verified
There are several things that can cause this. The paper could be loaded incorrectly. It is possible that the paper does not have the correct specifications to match this printer. It could be that the selected paper size does not match the actual paper. If none of this solves the problem, contact the manufacturer.
