Weekly TIp No 10 - Never Run Back-to-Back Cleaning Cycles

It just makes things worse! Give the cartridge a chance to let some ink flow in between cleaning cycles. After running a cleaning cycle, always print a "nozzle check" or "test print" between cleaning cycles. Then, wait a few minutes. Print two or three pages of a color pattern or a color-balanced image (this will purge air bubbles or foamy ink that a cleaning cycle may not get). If the printing is still not looking good, repeat the above.
