    1.5.1 Ink Out When the printer runs out the most part of the ink of any one color, it warns ink-low and keeps printing. When the printer runs out the whole ink of any one color, it stops printing and indicates ink-out error. User is requested to install a new ink-cartridge in this state.

  • Page 36: No Ink-cartridge

    Following reasons can be the causes when printer goes this error mode. 1. When the printer is turned on for the first time. (This is a normal error state and it returns to the normal state after installing an ink cartridge according to the ink cartridge exchange operation.)
