My wife indeed powers it off with the switch. It has not been used
enough for the heads to be "burned out."

That is a major part of your problem. If you power it down from the
control panel the printer parks the print head and then caps it. If
you just shut it down the ink in the nozzles will dry and clog them.


I have no doubt that you are 100% correct, Eric ..........


he is

How do you KNOW that?


because he's not as stupid as you are.

Tell us, why do you display *YOUR* stupidity for all and sundry to see?

This is *NOT* a rhetorical question. Some folk simply do not understand
your masochistic need to be a Troll.

I've got a P800 which as far as I know is a larger version of Philo's
P600. The information you are querying is in the manual.

Not only that but what you said is true for all ink printers of all
manufacture. They all have caps that protect the printhead when the printer
powers down using the printer power button, if power is removed from the wall
this cannot happen and there is a risk of the heads drying out. In some cases
the power down cycle can take several seconds while the printer performs a
short head clean to further reduce the chance of dried out heads.

nonsense.


Canon gave a substantial grant to an educational organization. A lot of
the grant money was used to purchase thirty Epson printers. It's not
hard to figure out why.


most canon printers have the heads in the ink cartridge, which gets
replaced every time the ink is replaced.

even if the heads did burn out, it's easy to fix. replace the ink.

epson heads *will* burn out if the clean cycle is run too many times in
a row.

Epson use piezoelectric technology in their ink printer heads, they do not get
hot. Epson printheads are far more likely to clog because of the very tiny
nozzles. Long cleaning cycles can be necessary to recover clogged heads.The
upside is generally superior print quality resulting from their technology.

I was referring to the switch on the printer. It is shut down properly.

Anyway it's working now so will not be needing a new one.

It is never powered down from the wall.
