As with all our sublimation printers, we recommend that you leave the printer powered on at all times and in an operational state (no errors). This is in order for your printer to perform its automatic maintenance to ensure that the print head is always coated in ink. This will greatly reduce the risk of the ink drying and subsequently blocking the print head. Furthermore, constantly powering the printer on and off can be costly in ink as the printer performs a small maintenance at power on as well as at power off.
Please also be advised, that should the printer be left powered off for a certain amount of time, it may perform an ink purge at power on.
