Deep Print Head Cleaning

If print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the print head, clean the print head deeply. Cleaning the print head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the print head, so clean the print head deeply only when necessary.

  1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

  2. Press the Setup button.

    The (Setup) icon and "1" appear on the LCD.

  3. Press the + button until "3" appears on the LCD.

  4. Press the Black button or the Color button.

    The printer starts cleaning the print head deeply.

    The cleaning will be complete when the ON lamp lights after flashing.

    Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the deep cleaning of the print head. This takes about 3 minutes.

  5. Check the print head condition.

    To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.
