Should I leave my Ricoh printer powered on when not in use?
Yes, when not in use, it is highly recommended to leave the printer powered on to allow the Ricoh automatic maintenance utilities to keep the print head nozzles clear. The Ricoh platforms have been engineered to perform automatic maintenance at various times in an effort to keep the print nozzles in perfect condition. If this maintenance cannot be automatically performed, it is possible that the nozzles may suffer permanent effects. As a result, cleanings may be unable to restores the print head to optimal operation.
