Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps on the Operation Panel

• The ink level detector is mounted on the printer to detect the remaining ink level. The printer considers
as ink is full when a new FINE cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a remaining ink level. If
you install a used FINE cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be correct. In such case, refer to
the ink level information only as a guide.
• When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the ink lamps and the Alarm lamp will flash to inform you
of the error. Count the number of flashes and take appropriate action.
