This refers to the process of running an automatic cleaning cycle, from the printer interface itself (or from the Adjustment Program or associated printer software). On most Epson based systems, this forces the printer to go through a series of capping station pump cycles and wiper blade passes to push a small amount of ink through all the channels and attempt to clear the nozzle plate of any obstructions. Some systems allow for varying levels of Cleaning Cycle intensity. NOTE: Cleaning Cycles, while often effective, are not a substitute for manual maintenance! You still need to physically scrub your capping station top and wiper blade, regularly. Do not rely solely on auto cleaning cycles, or you will and yourself in a tough situation, down the road.
