To maintain optimum print quality, the HP 2500C series printer automatically performs the operations of spitting, wiping, and capping the printheads.
Although the printheads require no routine maintenance, proper use and handling of them will help insure optimum print quality and printhead life.
Whenever print quality noticeably decreases, it is a good idea to run the Clean Printheads utility either through the HP 2500C Toolbox on your computer or from the control panel on the printer. Please refer to the Maintenance Tab of the Toolbox if you wish to clean the printheads from the Toolbox.
The Clean Printheads utility consists of 3 levels of cleaning. Each level of cleaning uses some ink to clear the printheads. It is recommended that you start with Level 1 before proceeding to subsequent levels. Note that Level 3 takes the longest and uses the most ink.
