I will be away on vacation for one month. What is the preferred method of maintaining the printer while I am away? Do I turn it off? Should I leave it on as I think it cycles periodically? Do I try to seal it (with moisture - a sponge)? If sealed, leave on or off?

Hi alandb~

As per our R2880 refill cartridge instructions: “Long term storage of printer: We do not recommend letting a printer sit unused with pigment inks installed. If you do not plan to use a printer for an extended period of time, it is best to remove ink cartridges, install a set of flush cartridges and flush ink from the print head by doing 3-4 cleaning cycles, before turning it off for safe storage. Store unused cartridges upright in a sealed plastic bag to avoid drying.”

I hope this helps, please let me know if you have further questions or there’s anything else I can help you with.
