Select Options on the left.
Select Advanced Features.

Select Printer Maintenance.
Select Test Print.
Good Test Print The test pattern should look like this sample (no missing lines). If it does, press Yes. You do not need to perform a print head cleaning procedure.
Poor Test Print If the test pattern looks like this sample (missing lines), press No. The machine will then execute a print head cleaning. When complete, it will return to the PM maintenance menu.
