So, you’ve purchased a HP Envy 5560 and it has been working brilliantly for the past few months. However, you’ve started to notice some small issues with print quality and find yourself wondering what’s gone wrong? The likely answer is that your printer needs some maintenance completed in order to get back to its former glory.
However, if you don’t know how to do this then do not panic as we have the information you need so that you can enjoy quality prints for many years – read on to find out more!
Clean the Exterior On a Weekly Basis
It may sound simple but cleaning the external casing of your printer on a weekly basis will stop dirt and dust from building up and clogging the machine. Use a lint-free cloth and only ever clean the parts you can easily reach (as the internal workings are cleaned in a different way).
When you have cleaned the printer down, make sure that there are no obstructions to the printer and that you are not housing it in a place that will encourage people to pile things up on it. Printers need to be kept clear and clean at all times.
Run the Cleaning Programme Every Three Months
HP work hard to make owning a printer as easy as possible. One of the best things they install on all of their printers is a printer head cleaning function that works to remove any ink clogging and create an environment where ink can run freely and print cleanly.
This programme does not need to be run every week, in fact you only need to do it once every three months if you are a daily user and every six months for more sporadic usage. The programme runs quickly and quietly so that you can get on with your day without interruption.
Buy Replacement Ink
HP Envy 5660 ink cartridges are not cheap to get hold of when you choose to buy genuine ink you can expect to pay a significant amount for not very much ink. A better way to top up your printer is to choose replacement ink from a specialist service like Smart Ink.
These cartridges house excellent ink but cost far less as the companies that sell them do not have the same overheads that need to be covered. Be sensible when you choose an ink company to purchase from and only opt for one that has a good returns period and ongoing customer support services in case there are any issues with the product you purchase.

When you look after your HP Envy then you can be confident that it will last longer and produce excellent results every time. From a simple dust to keeping the printer clear and running the internal cleaning programme to buying replacement ink, there really are some simple wins when it comes to looking after your machine. Include all our tips in your computer maintenance regime and you can expect it last longer than you ever imagined.
