Cleaning DNP RX1 Printer

dmphotobooth
I have been advised by a fellow vendor to make sure I clean the printer head between each paper roll change to keep from getting streaks. I run two printers and so far prints have been great with no problems, even after several boxes of media. (1 box 700 4x6 prints). So still very new lightly used printers.



This is the print head kit I purchased, however it's not very clear how to use. FotoClub has been of no help in replies on how to use the product. Super fast to sell it however. :)



Mainly just has a pen & some alcohol swabs

Any ideas on best practices of preventative maintenance for DNP-RX1 printers?



Thanks in advance!

    Check out page 22. That's about it.

    Thanks Mike! Can't believe I didn't think to look up the manual. Not much to those prints. Thanks again! ;-)

    Sometimes it is the last place we want to look. I think that Google and the internet in general has done this to us. Too much information out there, why go to the traditional sources!

    Some printer manufacturers recommended cleaning every roll change (the Hiti P510 series will even display a message on the screen every few prints if you run more that 2 rolls without running the cleaning function). However I was told DNP only recommends cleaning the RX1 if you have a problem.



    I have 3 RX1s and have never had to clean any of them, they run great.
