Does the title of the new menu option refer to the number of times the printer will attempt a clean?
I updated my firmware today and the number of cleaning times was already set to 1.
So at the moment, will my printer make just one attempt to clean?
And if I change the setting to 2, will my printer makes two attempts to clean etc?
Any clarification would be great!
Agreed. Is this even a new feature? I wasn't aware of this menu ... could this have been there all of the time? Odd this is in a menu designed for service techs, not end users - I can't find any mention of it in the documentation. So is the change the default use to be 3 and now the default is 1 but you can change it back to 3?
So if I start a cleaning cycle and this is set to one, does that mean it won't clean again even if it detects a clog .. meaning if I have the printer set to not do auto nozzle checks between prints, the only time it will do an ANC on it's own is when changing black inks? I guess that's useful, but I think I still prefer to control how aggressive the cleaning cycle is with service mode. I almost always can clear a "clog" with a CL1 ... very little ink. Wish they would just put the service mode functionality in a normal menu with an option to have ANC only report when it fails.
I still am unsure that these are "clogs". Yesterday after sitting idle for about 5 days I started up my 7900, and 100% of the Cyan nozzles were "clogged". Not a single spec of cyan ink anywhere. All the other colors were perfect. After a CL1 of that channel, 100% of the cyan channel was functioning. Hard to see how this could be caused by ink clogs in the nozzles. I'm seeing this a few times a month now, where all or nearly all of a color does this, and a simple channel clean clears it up completely.
