This printer is equipped with a remaining ink
warning system. Information about the available
amount of ink in one pack is recorded in the chip
unit supplied with a new ink pack. By installing a
new chip unit on the printer, this information is
written to the printer.
The warning system for remaining ink estimates
the remaining ink based on the information
written to the printer for one pack of ink and the
ink usage conditions, and then displays a
message. To maintain the accuracy of this system,
you must replace the chip unit and refill the ink as
soon as possible once the remaining ink is 50 mm
or less from the bottom of the ink tank.
