How can printhead cleaning be run manually, and how much ink is required?
A printhead cleaning can be performed:
From the Printer Control Panel:
Menu button -> Head Cleaning (Head Cleaning A or Head Cleaning B)
OR Hold Information button for 3 seconds for Head Cleaning A
From the GARO Status Monitor:
Maintenance tab -> Printhead Cleaning (Printhead Cleaning A or Printhead Cleaning B)
Differences in Head Cleaning Routines:
Printhead Cleaning A - 4 minutes; reportedly the printer goes through a cleaning cycle, then tests the heads (
uses approximately 10 ml of ink
per data from Tom Huxley)
Printhead Cleaning B - 6 minutes; reportedly the printer goes through 3 cleaning cycles, then tests the heads. John Hollenberg measured
72.6 ml ink used for the "strong" cleaning
ervice Mode), presumed to be the same as Head Cleaning B.
