With a new academic year rapidly approaching, students have been advised to take good care of their printers and pack spare ink cartridges with them.

According to the website If It Prints, I'll Let You Know, a printer could be one of the student's most important technological assets and they should treat them with care.

As well as storing back-up ink cartridges and paper supplies, it also suggested that young academics should keep the printer covered when it is not in use and ensure that it remains clean.

"In order to protect your printer from dust and other unwanted elements, keep it covered with a protector, and give it a quick external wipe down once a week or so," the website suggested.

"Along the same thought, keep papers and media as well as replacement ink stored properly instead of leaving them lying around."

Recently, Canon unveiled a new selection of inkjet and laser printers including the Pixma MP560, which takes ink cartridges and is ideal for photo printing.
