It's fairly common knowledge that you need to use an inkjet printer every so often to ensure the heads do not block.
My question is, what is every so often; Similarly, what should be printed, clearly it must involve colours. Would something such as the windows test print suffice, although it only contains a tiny amount of colour in the corner.
I've yet to see any guidance from the manufacturers on this matter, for both of these points.
I can't believe this has to be spelt out on what is meant to be a technical site, however let me be clear as possible... I am NOT interested in your opinion, I place no value in it unless you happen to work for a printer manufacturer in which case I'll take that as good as official guidance. If I was only interested in opinions I'd have made no mention of guidance from manufacturers. I want a specific answer to the question 'What is every so often' and 'what should be printed'.
