Good to know

  • Deep Cleaning consumes a larger amount of ink than regular Cleaning.

  • Cleaning the print head frequently will rapidly deplete your printer's ink supply. Perform the process only when necessary.

  • If there is no sign of improvement after a deep cleaning, turn off the printer, wait 24 hours, and then perform a deep cleaning again.

  • If there is still no sign of improvement, the ink may have run out or the print head may be worn.
