The method determining at least one resonance frequency of the pressure chamber; determining a disturbance detection pulse for generating a pressure wave in the liquid in the pressure chamber taking into account the resonance frequencies previously determined, wherein the disturbance detection pulse has a frequency spectrum different from a frequency spectrum of the droplet ejection pulse; detecting a residual pressure wave in the liquid in the pressure chamber; and analyzing the residual pressure wave previously detected for determining whether a disturbance for droplet ejection is present in the ejection unit. With this method, disturbances in the ejection unit may be derived from the residual pressure wave more reliably and easier.
