Hi, I am new to this forum.

I have been trying to find out when the canon pixma pro 10s initiates a purge cycle. I have searched the internet and found varying
answers to this question. I have read the following variations:

a) the printer initiates a purge cycle every 60 hours regardless of other activities (starting from the first time it printed anything);
b) the printer initiates a purge cycle before every print (as well as or instead of the 60 hour cycle ?);
c) the 60 hour cycle is re-initiated after each print;
d) prints should be made at least every two days to beat the 60 hour cycle.

If the 60 hour cycle takes place regardless, then there is no point as far as I can see in printing every 2 days, the printer will purge after the 60 hours. Presumably this period is set from the day the printer is first used.

I rang the canon technical advice line and they said they knew nothing of a 60 hour cycle, and the printer only purges when it is switched on. They also said that the printer should be switched off after every session ??

Does anybody know what actually happens, and why is this a sort of hidden secret ? It is not explained in the user manual.

I would like to know before I try a compatible ink refillable system.

I hope this is understandable, it may have been discussed here before

many thanks, Robert
