Any info would be greatly appreciated.

What I do daily is I first do a couple of head cleans with the button, I also wipe around the capping station and wipe the wiper blade. I go over my printhead with a soft cloth with slightly damp to remove any excess ink from the head. on the left side of the machine there is a smaller waste ink tank that I also clean out every couple of days. I make sure I swirl my white ink container also even though I have the white agitator. It only takes like 5 to 10 min. but so far I have had no problems what so ever by keeping up this schedule of doing things. I think it is really important to keep this up to make sure my machine runs great on a daily basis. I just do it before I start printing every day and it works for me.
hope this helps
