Maintenance: How to ensure a long cartridge life
To ensure a long cartridge life it is very important to purge the cartridge regularly. The cleaning cycle and purging cycle is NOT the same. Please refer to your printer manual for full instructions about purging your cartridge.
What is a purge cycle?
The purge cycle is an automatic process that heats all the tiny parts and ink in the cartridge and then cleans them from the inside out. All purge cycles produce a grid which consists of vertical and horizontal lines which represent printing quality of the cartridge.
