AIRHEAD TECH NOTES--
How To Fix a Broken Printer

by Pelham Grenville, AIR staff

The computer printer is a basic piece of equipment, well known to every modern researcher. Most printers undergo heavy use, and from time to time fall in need of repair. Here is an outline of how you can get a broken or balky printer working, at mininal cost in time or frustration. The procedure is simple:

1. Remove the printer's ink cartridge.

2. Obtain 1 (one) liter of tepid water.

3. Pour the water into the empty ink cartridge slot.

4. Buy a new printer.

I have found this method to be reliable, and satisfying.
