This is because removing and reinserting the cartridge can introduce air bubbles into the ink system, which can negatively impact the printing process. Air bubbles can enter the ink cartridge when it is removed from the printer, causing gaps or pockets of air within the cartridge or the ink delivery system. These air bubbles can interfere with the smooth flow of ink and disrupt the printing process. When the printer detects the presence of air bubbles, it may initiate additional cleaning cycles to try and remove them. Cleaning…

Regular printing helps to prevent ink from drying out in the printhead nozzles. When you print, the ink is circulated and ejected through the nozzles, which helps to keep them clear and functional.
