Canon i865 head cleaning

  Newuser3975 12:12 01 Feb 2004

Have any Canon i865 printer users experience of leaving these printers on standby if they are not to be used for several weeks - eg when away on holiday. Canon say that they will do an autuo head clean every 72 hours. Does the computer need to left on? Do you need paper in the printer and does it use much ink?
Thanks for any info.

I would suggest if you are going away for say two weeks you switch it off, and do a head clean on your return. I sometimes do not use my Canon s630 for two weeks or so and do not have problems. Regards David

Thanks David4637. Have you ever left it longer - say up to 8 weeks? Wonder what would happen then.
Regards Tom
