How to Printer Setup and Installation in Windows

The most important task after buying a printer is to set it upright in the first place. Here are a few steps to set up the printer right:

Step 1: Unbox the printer and the accessories:

  • To begin with, the printer setup process, unbox your printer and the accessories carefully.
  • Fit your printer at the right spot and connect the original power cord to a direct power supply.
  • Then, connect the LAN cable from your printer to the router.

Step 2: Ink Cartridge installation:

  • After connecting the printer to the power supply, turn it on. Wait for your printer to settle and open the ink cartridge access door.
  • You can see the ink cartridge carrier moving to the corner or the center.
  • Now, unwrap the new original ink cartridge from the packing and peel off the packing tape.

Be careful not to touch the copper contact heads on the ink cartridges. This will cause ink leakage and ink clots.

  • Next, place the ink cartridges carefully in the slots and close the cartridge access door.
  • Wait for the cartridge to become idle and next load paper into the input tray.

Step 3: Printer Driver installation:

  • The final step is to install the drivers for your printer setup. Usually, you get a CD/DVD with the basic set of drivers in the box.
  • You can use this CD/DVD for installing the basic set of drivers to your device.
  • Yet, it is always better to get the complete set of drivers and software from the direct site.
