Has any one any ideas as to how often to run the unclog routine to try and make sure you don't get any clogs?

This is for Epson printer.

Thanks

Roy Wraight


After posting this I have just read another question and 3 days is mentioned does this sound right?

I am now on my 4th Epson printer.  I run unclog basically 3 times a week and it has greatly reduced the number of clogs.  But I don't think that you can absolutely prevent them.  I have had clogs occur at the end of a full day of printing when all colors have been running and printing for hours on end.  In addition, I run an unclog and then a nozzle check at the start of every print session and after each cartridge change.  You may still get clogs, but much less frequently.

Thanks for your reply.

I also have had 3 or 4 Epson printers and the nozzle clogging started when I changed from dye inks always used epsons.

I just perhaps thought that their was a good solution.

Yes.  Me too.  I have never used anything other than the Epson cartridges.  I have not studied this very scientifically - I have no metrics.  So I still get clogs - unpredictably as I mentioned.  But I am positive that they are much fewer and farther between now that I regularly run the unclog cycle.
