The machine uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan and Magenta ink
cartridges that are separate from the print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Replacement Ink Cartridges
The first time you install the ink cartridges the machine will use extra
ink to fill the ink delivery tubes. This is a one-time process that
enables high quality printing. Afterward, replacement ink cartridges
will print the specified number of pages.
Black - Approximately 350 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 300 pages at 5%
The above figures assume continuous printing at a resolution of
600 x 600 dpi in normal mode after installing a new ink cartridge.
The number of pages a cartridge will print may change
depending on how often you use the machine and how many
pages you print with each use.
The machine will automatically and periodically clean the print
head assembly, a process that uses a small amount of ink.
When the machine identifies a cartridge as empty there may be
a small amount of ink left in it. This is necessary to prevent air
from drying out and damaging the print head assembly.
