    I have read here a few times about how the Mutoh Falcon Outdoor Junior does not have an automatic cleaning feature. Page number 58 of the users guide/manual says that it does.

    Which is correct?

    The MUTOH, according to its manual will"occasionally carry out an automatic cleaning cycle" and leaves one with the option of doing a cleaning cycle as one wishes.
    On a servicing vein---any ideas where I could obtain a service/maintainence manual for a Mutoh 38.
    I have followed many "links" without success.

    Any ideas as to why I have to regularly syringe the waste ink lines in order to draw inks to the heads?
    Regards

    You can buy the service Manual from Mutoh:

    As per your issue, either your capping station or your pump is failing.

    Finbar.. Thats what I read. So, if left on, how often would it clean itself? Does yours?

    Compilla... Thats what I suspected. I have never heard this printer do anything periodically when left on for days at a time.

    Thanks

    John,
    Not sure where you found that but my user manual says nothing about a auto cleaning and when I had that printer I know it didn't have an auto clean cycle. If you have it connected by a network cable there is a way to set up an a test print such as a just a 1/2" wide row of cmyk blocks. You can have windows automatically send the file via TCP\IP every 12 or 24 hrs or something like that. There was a thread about it recently.
