Printhead Cleaning P57750dw Pagewide Pro Machines

Inkjet printers that go through a period of time of not being used, the ink will try on the printhead and will require a cleaning to have the printer calibrate to its original settings.

During the printing process, paper, ink, and dust particles can accumulate inside the product. Over time, this buildup can cause print-quality problems such as specks or smearing. This product automatically services itself, running cleaning routines that can correct most of these problems. For problems that the product cannot automatically solve, use the following routine to clean the printhead.

NOTE: This routine uses ink to clean the printhead. Use the routine only to correct print quality errors. Do not use it for periodic maintenance.

TIP: Turning the product on properly by pressing the power button on the front of the product helps keep the printhead from clogging and creating print-quality problems.
