Just to make it clear when I said "One tip was to remove the waste ink recepticle and put a damp sponge in its place. The evaporating water will reduce the speed of the ink drying on the (static) head."

No Worry Tony, that's what I understood, and it is my case as I don't print very often and therefor do power off the printer in between.  Just 2 days ago I powered it on and once again it automatically started its deep power cleaning, the one that goes on with percentage from 1 to 100% displayed, and by the way emptied two carts that were borderline and filled the M one, so now I am stuck while I have to get 2 new carts and a M cart plus unable to print what I was trying to start with x-)

Surely a good time to switch to refillables as I probably lost a lot more ink in cleaning than printing
