Ink Safety Precautions

Ink Consumption
  • This printer uses ink cartridges equipped with a green chip that monitors information such as the amount of remaining ink for each cartridge. This means that even if the cartridge is removed from the printer before it is expended, you can still use the cartridge after reinserting it back into the printer. However, when reinserting a cartridge, some ink may be consumed to guarantee printer performance.
  • To ensure you receive premium print quality and to help protect your print head, a variable ink safety reserve remains in the cartridge when your printer indicates that it is time to replace the cartridge. Quoted ink yields do not include this reserve.
  • Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.
  • Do not use the cartridges that came with the printer as replacement cartridges.
  • To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from all ink cartridges during maintenance operations. Ink may also be consumed when you replace an ink cartridge or turn the printer on.
  • When printing in monochrome or grayscale, color inks may be used instead of black ink depending on the paper type or print quality settings you are using.
