Replace Ink Cartridges

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your WorkForce 500 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If an ink cartridge is expended, you see a message on the WorkForce 500 Series display screen. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.
If you have installed a 68 (High Capacity) color cartridge, the screen may show it as 69. This is not a problem, however, because the WorkForce 500 Series recognizes that it is actually a 68 cartridge.
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
