There seems to be quite a bit of variation on the on/off and clogging issue from printer model to printer model and even printer to printer. My 785EPX used to clog frequently. Turning it off when I wasn't using it, and also making sure that the thickness setting was set at the thinnest setting, has virtually eliminated clogs. - David -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Paul D.
