    quick question, i'm cleaning my vp before heading on vacation,(leaving monday) i'm done cleaning it and did a test print when the out of ink message came out, looks like i'm out of magneta!! and don't have any around.
    i checked the display panel and it shows 1 line.

    my question is will it hurt the machine not having a full ink cartridge when doing the periodic self-cleanings?
    i've some cleaning liquid cartridges, will it do more damage than good if i insert one into the magneta slot?

    thanks

    Based on other brand experiences, I would recommend inserting the Cleaning cart so the line has no air in it to possibly dry up at all.

    Cleaning fluid will not damage anything.

    Just a suggestion.

    so i would just insert the cleaning fluid and then replace it with a new one once i get it?
    any flushing has to be performed afterwards?
    thanks

    I would recommend inserting cleaning cart and letting it go.

    Once you get back, replace the cleaning cart with new ink cart and run a few cleans to pull the cleaning fluid out.

    Will waste a bit of ink but may be the safer approach

    thanks cibersupply,
    i think this is what i'm gonna do.
    i guess after getting new ink i can buy a serenge and bleed just the magneta line, is this possible?

    Sure it is... and a good idea to save you the ink.
