Why use Head Cleaning in Printer

by Inkraz Store on January 28, 2021
If you find that the printed image is unexpectedly faint or dots in the printed image are missing, you may be able to solve these problems by cleaning the print head, which ensures that the nozzles are delivering ink properly.

You can clean the print head from your computer using the Head Cleaning utility in the printer software, or from the printer itself by using the printer's control panel buttons.


Print head cleaning consumes some ink. To avoid wasting ink, clean the print head only if print quality declines; for example, if the printout is blurry or the color is incorrect or missing.

Use the Nozzle Check utility first to confirm that the print head needs to be cleaned. This saves ink.

When the ink out light is flashing or on, you cannot clean the print head. You must replace the appropriate ink cartridge first.

Do not start the Head Cleaning or Nozzle Check utility while printing is in progress; otherwise, your printout may be marred
