Ink Level Detection
The printer ink tank detects the amount of ink remaining to prevent running out of ink while printing
and to avoid printer failure.
When using an ink tank refilled with ink, the function for detecting the remaining ink level may not operate
properly and printing may stop. If you want to use an ink tank refilled with ink, you need to disable the
function for detecting the remaining ink level.
Printing with the ink level detection canceled may lead to printer damage and printing problems. Canon Inc.
is not liable for any damage that may occur as a result of refilling ink.
• Once the function for detecting the remaining ink level is disabled, it cannot be restored for that ink
tank. To restore the function for detecting the remaining ink level, replace the ink tank with a new ink
tank for that printer.
• Repeatedly removing and inserting the same ink tank can cause the contacts between the ink tank and
printer to malfunction, ink may leak from the ink tank, and the printer may become damaged.
