• Selector 3: Black ink print mode
If any color ink runs out, printing is no longer possible by default. Setting this selector to
"1" allows the machine to function as a monochrome printer, making it possible to print
with black ink only even in an ink empty state as listed below.

TIP: Difference between selector 3 on AMS04 and selector 8 on WSW49 (See
4-52.)
Both selector 3 on AMS04 and selector 8 on WSW49 specify the similar black ink print
mode that applies if any color ink runs out. The difference is that the former allows the
machine to print all data received as a monochrome printer with black ink only; the latter to
ignore the ink empty state, receive both color and black data, and print it, resulting in a
printout missing color components.
• Selectors 4 and 8: Automatic purging for color ink and for black ink
The machine periodically performs an automatic purge by default. The automatic purge,
however, wastes ink when no printing has occurred. To avoid it, disable the automatic
purge with these selectors. In the first printing after a long no-print period, disabling it may
lower the print quality.
Setting selector 4 or 8 to "1" disables the setting made by selectors 6 and 7.
• Selectors 6 and 7: Automatic purging interval
These selectors allow you to select the automatic purge interval to reduce ink consumption.
Setting these selectors to "1, 1" (No purge) disables the setting made by selectors 4 and 8.
