Storing TR150 for extended time

BEBaker8

I spend two weeks a year out of the country, so I purchased a new TR150 for doing my printing while traveling. I wonder what the best way is to store it while not being used. With my previous printer (same model, but an older version), I could never get it to print at all, even after replacing ink cartridges and a new print head. So I bought a new one and need to know how best to store it for a year in order for it to be up and ready to go. I am sure that it would be good to not store the ink cartridges in the printer, but wondering about any other steps to keep it from clogging up.

Thank you for your help.

Greetings,

No inkjet is going to do well being stored for a year without use, Plastic bag might help, but chances are, its going to clog sitting for that amount of time.

Best option, print from it once a month.

Thank you. Obviously, I can get new ink cartridges each year, but is there a way to clean the print head before storing it?

Does the construction of the TR150 print head look similar to this?

It’s very similar to that one and I bet the process would be the same. Thank you!
