Misunderstanding 2: The waste ink of the printer is too large, just use the program to clear it
There is a saying in the market that after the waste ink exceeds the capacity, you only need to run the printer maintenance program and clear the printer waste ink counter.
In fact, the waste ink resetting of the maintenance program only clears the waste ink counter in the printer, and the waste ink generated by the printer due to nozzle cleaning, power-on self-test and other reasons still exists. If we just clear the waste ink counter without cleaning the waste ink pad of the printer, the waste ink in the waste ink pad will continue to increase while the printer continues to work. Once the waste ink pad of the printer is full of waste ink, waste ink may flow out.
If the waste ink flows to the power board or control board of the printer, it will cause a short circuit on the circuit board, which will damage the printer. Even if the waste ink does not overflow, when the waste ink of the printer is excessive, the vapor emitted from the waste ink pad will cause damage to the printer circuit board, operating mechanism and even the nozzle.
Of course, some friends think that when the printer’s waste ink is over-capacity warning, the waste ink pad is not full and there is no need to clean the waste ink pad. Indeed, in many places when printer waste ink alarms, there is not much ink on the waste ink pad, and there is a certain margin left in the printer alarm, which gives many friends the impression of "no danger". But we can’t take this as a reason not to clean up the waste ink pad, because the amount of waste ink on the waste ink pad has many variables, such as temperature, air humidity, whether the printer has ink leakage, etc., and even once The waste ink did not overflow when the waste ink alarmed. What about the second and third alarms?
