Routine Maintenance
Print Head Cleaning
Clean the Print Head if lines are missing or if white streaks appear in the printed nozzle check 
pattern. Cleaning unclogs the nozzles and restores the print head condition. Note that cleaning the 
Print Head causes used ink to be absorbed in the ink absorber. Cleaning the Print Head consumes 
ink, so perform Print Head Cleaning only when necessary.
