I have that as my school printer, not bad, does the job well and fast. (Got it when i also got my pb)powermac666 said:When I got my PowerBook last year, it came with a free HP 5150. I hooked that up to the Airport Express for convenient wireless printing.
On the Epson C86, you need to turn it off if you're not using it for a couple of days. If you're using it every day, you can leave it on.rocko918 said:I have a epson stylus c86 and was wondering if you guys leave your printers on. I only turn it on when i need to print some thing. Does that hurt the life of the printer?
IT is not used everyday so i guess leaving it off it the best suggestion.Bear said:On the Epson C86, you need to turn it off if you're not using it for a couple of days. If you're using it every day, you can leave it on.
Every time you turn the C86 on, it uses up a little ink.
Due to the ink wastage, I recommend not power cycling the printer more than once a day in most cases.
I treat both my Epson printers this way (C86, 2200) and haven't had any head clogging problems, so I haven't had to run the head cleaning routines on either. The 2200 is about 17 months old. The C86 is a few months old.
If it's warm when it's off, it's burning $'s.Pismo said:I would like to get a laser printer, HP of course. I like the power save feature on most of them so I think that's the way to go. I'm sure that feature prolongs the life of the printer. I've noticed that my parents Epson was always warm from leaving it on all of the time.
