I'm new to the printing game and recently acquired a Canon Pro-10. During my comparison research, there was a lot of discussion around not letting the printer sit for any length of time, as pigments tend to clog up the print head.
Now, the printer has been great, but I'm about to go on a two week vacation. I'd love to not have to deal with clogged print heads when I return.
So, the question is, is two weeks enough time to warrant clogging concerns and if so, how can I prevent clogging?
This question details how to get a printer ready for long-term disuse, but this isn't really my case. I'm more interested in intermittent, shorter periods of disuse over long term storage.
Some tech specifics as asked by comment:
- Printer: Canon Pro-10
- Computer: Dell XPS 13 running Win 10
- My own tech capability: I do front-end dev, so setting something up requiring a bit of coding isn't completely foreign, though the exact process will be.
