Replacing a FINE Cartridge
This section explains the way to confirm the ink status and the procedure to replace FINE
When ink runs out or other errors occur, an error code is displayed on the LED to inform you of the
error. See "An Error Code Is Displayed on the LED" on page 44 and confirm how to handle it.
When printing from your computer, error messages appear on your computer screen as well.
If there is no improvement with the quality of printing following such maintenance as Print Head
Cleaning, a FINE Cartridge is probably empty. When ink runs out, replace the FINE Cartridge.
The machine cannot print if the wrong type of FINE Cartridge is used.
For information on compatible FINE Cartridges, see the back cover of this guide.
Getting the Ink Status Information
You can confirm the status of FINE Cartridges in the following ways:
"With the Ink Lamps" on page 33
"With the Computer Screen" on page 34
The ink level detector is mounted on the machine to detect the remaining ink level. The machine
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.
With the Ink Lamps
Make sure that the LED is on the standby mode. You can confirm the status of each cartridge by
the ink lamps.
(A) Alarm lamp
(B) Black Ink lamp
(C) Color Ink lamp
