Above this post I said that Waste Ink is collected by waste ink pads during the initial setup of the product, during print head cleaning cycles and when printing borderless photographs.
=> The Epson R360 printer Waste Ink Counters overflow time depends on these 3 items:
– How much borderless photographs have been printed.
– How many times the initial ink charge has been used.
– How many times the Epson R360 print head cleaning cycles were performed.
During Epson R360 print head cleaning cycle – about 2-5% of waste ink counter is been used (the waste ink counter increases).
So if You make about 25-30 print head cleanings cycles => You can overflow the Epson R360 printer waste ink counter.
=> Tips how to avoid Epson R360 printer Waste Ink Counters overflow:
– Use print head cleaning when it is strongly needed.
– Use quality inks to avoid print head cleanings.
– Epson offer optional, cost-effective, one or two-year service contracts for our ink jet printers in addition to the standard one-year warranty.
While under warranty or service contract, all hardware failures and maintenance messages are covered repairs. With one of these options, you can ensure the continued operation even with heavy use for up to 3 years.
– Different solution for high volume users will be to think about a higher level printer with a more robust duty cycle like the Epson Stylus Pro line of printers with larger ink cartridges and lower costs of usage.
