If the printhead is not used for more than three months, we recommend that the printhead be disassembled for preservation. Firstly, extract the ink inside the printhead, and clean the inside of the printhead with cleaning fluid (small blue bottle). And then introduce moisturising fluid from the ink column to moisturise the inside of the printhead. And then the entire printhead is wrapped around a moisturising film (this step can reduce the loss of moisturising liquid inside the printhead). So finally put the printhead into a special printhead box can be.
