question

Does this printer have a problem with clogged print heads if it is only used occasionally?
Asked by: emt103 ..
As with all inkjets, you can encounter clogging issues if you let the printer sit idle for a period of time. HP recommends leaving the printer powered up all the time. This gives it the opportunity to automatically test its heads at regular intervals and perform automatic maintenance and analysis. Ink usage in this process is minimal, and power consumption is low.
