Daily / After every use:
  • Wipe around capping station seal
  • Wipe around edges of printhead
  • Head clean and Print Nozzle check
Weekly:
  • Clean encoder strip
  • Clean encoder wheel
Make sure you don't let a system with white ink sit unused for more than a day or 2. 

Keep the room temperature between 70 - 78 degree F and the humidity 40 - 65%

I use a mix of 80% distilled water and 10% ethylenglycol plus 10% of propilenglycol at the end of the day , just unmount the printhead and make a waterfall flush ( be carefull with the cables) , also using the same solution in capping station.

You flush the printhead everyday? what printer are you using?

Be careful pushing fluid through the head with a syringe. It's easy to damage.

Also ribbon cables are somewhat fragile so plugging and unplugging daily will wear them out.

If you want to flush daily the safest way would be cleaning cartridges and run head cleans

R3000  , do what Andy says , I just broken the air pressure system applying to much pressure from the syringe.
I'm still waiting the ink bags to bypass it . It's so delicate .

What is the procedure when I will use the printer, put back the ink cartridges and do some head cleans?
