Example image of printing data is below.
   
** The printer's ink pad is estimated to become saturated and need replacing after about 30,000 discs. Based on printing 2000 discs per month, bi-directional. Actual results will vary based on such factors as images printed, print settings, media type, frequency of use and temperature.
*** Cartridge yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, media type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" indicator comes on. PP-100 ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer.
When an ink cartridge needs replacing, you cannot continue copying or printing without replacing the relevant cartridge, even if other cartridges don’t need replacing.
You should leave a cartridge needing replacement installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement. Doing otherwise may cause ink remaining in the print head nozzles to dry out and affect printer operation.
To ensure ongoing print quality and trouble-free operation, a variable amount of ink will be present in a cartridge that is low on ink after the “Replace Cartridge” indicator comes on.
This printer will use a quantity of ink from each cartridge for print-head cleaning and maintenance and will use ink from all cartridges for both black and colour printing.
