HP Toolbox Command-line Print Head Cleaning

I'm trying to run a print head cleaning via the command line for an HP Deskjet 6940 printer. I can lauch the HP Toolbox with hpqtbx01.exe, but I can't find the appropriate parameters to specify in order to just run a cleaning without lauching the UI. I really prefer to run this in 'silent' mode since this is going on an embedded system and I don't want our customers to have access to all the functions available in the HP Toolbox.

 

The commandline syntax for HP Toolbox is:

 

hpqtbx01[.exe] printerfriendlyname [/silent] [/run pluginname [/cmd argument]]

 

For the print head cleaining, I think I need to specify "ServicesPlugin" for pluginname, but the argument to use with /cmd is a mystery. Will someone please reply with the available parameters for the print head cleaning functions, including both the light and deep cleaning? Even better, a fully documented list of plugin names and cmd arguments would be really great, in case I need to expose additional Toolbox functions to our customers.

Re: HP Toolbox Command-line Print Head Cleaning

did you ever get a set of paramters/command line snips from HP? Saw a post where you were trying to do the very same thing I need to do.

Unfortunately, no answers to my request were ever provided. Quite disappointed in the support received here.
