Im noticing that my Canon ip4700 does more and more unnecessary cleaning cycles while it is on, almost the whole time infact, and nearly to the stage of doing one after every page or document is printed, even if I've just printed text. I use the German Method (http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4315) of cartridge refill. I have found threads similar to my problem: http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=5331&p=1 and http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=5322 But they don't answer the query in any finite way. So.. Is it possible to stop all these uncessecary cleaning cycles? Is the only method to do so by turning off monitoring (disabling), if so, how does one do this, because im struggling to find the right setting to do this. Unless already this is the case because I have forced cartridge replacement off so that it wont assume the inks are out the whole time, so it shows all cartridges as empty on the printer status window. Or is this seperate to ink monitoring? Because what was implied in the other threads is that disabling ink monitoring should also entirely disable these incessant cleaning cycles that make a lot of gurgling and sucking and seem to drain a large percentage of the ink In my cartridges. If my ink monitoring is already off, then what other option is there? This is ofcourse assuming that just running manual cleaning cycles when necessary should be enough. Any advice/help is appreciated. Thanks.
