LEF 20 - often cleaning

Post by a_deep » Thu Jun 30, 2016 5:12 pm

Hello.
After 1 year usage my printer becomes cleaning after each printed sheet. What's wrong with him?
P.S. Can it be because of "Replace wiper" warning that comes at turning the printer on? Wiper is replaced.
Thank you.

You need to reset the wiper counter (maintenance menu).

Are you using original ink?

Yes, of course - EKO-UV4 type
Where should I reset the wiper counter? In Maintenance is only "Replace wiper". Or I need to enter Engineer menu?
UPD: Ok, I found the problem - my printing manager didn't replace wiper through menu - she made it manually, so we had the counter problem. Now everything is OK

Yes, reset is made by replacing the wiper through menu command.

Also empty your drain bottle the same way. Then you'll have a reminder at the right time.

Well, the problem is back. I've reseted all counters (wiper and drain bottle), replaced chips on cartridges - nothing changed.
What can it be?

I guess you would remember if you turned on periodic cleaning yourself?

Of course, periodical cleaning is turned off ("none")

Did you ever resolve this issue? I am having the same problem, cleans between every print no matter how much time has passed!
