Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit
(Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing,
press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the
ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the
ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be
disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the
printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if
printing is continued under the ink out condition.
Possible causes are as follows:
The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this
machine.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned
or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print
Head Alignment.
Confirm that the FINE Cartridges are installed in the
appropriate positions. See "Replacing a FINE Cartridge" on
page 24.
The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used
during Print Head Cleaning, for example. The error code "E,
8" indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full. Press the
Black or Color button to cancel the error so that you can
continue printing.
Before the ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a
Canon service representative. (You will need to replace a
particular part of the machine.)
Important
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this
error occurs. Once the ink absorber becomes completely full,
printing cannot be performed until the ink absorber is
replaced.

machine. Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are
