Ink cartridges are the most basic consumables for inkjet printers. In general, inkjet printers are colored. Conventional ink cartridges are divided into black and white and color two-color ink cartridges. High-end printers use more than 4 colors, but general household printers are still two-color. The maintenance methods are basically the same.
Regardless of whether it is a two-color or four-color ink cartridge, as long as the unopened ink cartridge is stored in a cool place, it has a 2-year shelf life; and the opened ink cartridge should never be removed from the printer because the ink cartridge can be protected in the printer for a long time.
The normal maintenance time of the printer’s print head is to print at least once or twice a week to keep the print head wet and prevent the ink in the print head from drying out and blocking the ink. Therefore, the nozzle of the ink cartridge cannot be exposed to the air and the outdoor environment for a long time, because this will accelerate the volatilization of the ink cartridge and directly affect the storage time of the ink cartridge. At the same time, pay attention to the intrusion of dust to avoid affecting the operation of the components.
In fact, not only ink will block the print head, paper scraps are more likely to form a blockage, especially some paper with poor quality and insufficient grams. Therefore, to develop a good habit of using the printer, with some high-quality consumables accessories can not only improve print quality, but also extend the service life of the printer.
