I recently did a bit of maintenance on a few of my printers. Two R1900 one R2400 and one R2880

The reason is because about a month ago I experienced Purge Unit cloggs on both R1900 which required repeated back flushing through the drain tubes and aspiration while also adding fluif to the top of the pad. It was a P I the A!!!

So as a preventitive I basically pippetted about 2ml of Windex on top of each purge pad and turned the printers Off On and back Off.

This was two days ago. Tonight I went down to the print room to print a few things for a friend only to find all four printers had all their inks wicked from their refillable carts.

How did I know? The waste ink bottles told the story.

So for the rest of this evening I emptied waste ink and refilled and primed four sets of carts. I then ran cleaning cycles to get everthing firing and ran nozzle checks and test prints.

I then left the printers on for the rest of the night. No more wicking of ink has taken place.

So it appears this was a no no. Apparently there was enough fluid Windex of the pad surface to create a fierce wicking action once the head assumed the parked position while powering off.
