Knowing When to Replace Ink Tanks
The ALARM lamp on the printer flashes orange four, seventeen, or eighteen times once
any one of the ink tanks is out of ink. If ink is out during printing or after printing is
complete, a message will be displayed on your PC. Check to see which ink tank is out of
ink, and replace it with a new one.
Replacing the ink tanks while printing is in progress may reduce the print
quality. To maintain optimal print quality, we recommend that you cancel
the print job in progress, replace the ink tanks, and then print again.
