Replacing an Ink Tank
When replacing an ink tank, check the model number very carefully.
The printer will not print properly if the wrong ink tank is used, or installed in
the incorrect position.
With this printer, ink tanks must be installed from the right in the order indicated below.
• Black: BCI-24 Black
• Color: BCI-24 Color
„ Replacing Ink Tanks
When ink tanks run out of ink, replace them using the following steps.
1
Ensure that the printer is on, and then open the front cover.
The print head holder moves to the center.
2
Remove the empty ink tank.
(1) Pull the tab on the ink tank towards you to release.
(2) black

z Handle ink tanks carefully to avoid staining clothing or
the surrounding area.
z Discard empty ink tanks according to the local laws and
regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
Printing Maintenance
3
Prepare a replacement tank
(1) Unpack a new ink tank and remove the orange protective cap.
Important
4
z Do not re-attach the protective cap once you have
removed it.
z Once the protective cap is removed, do not touch the
open ink port.
Insert the ink tank
(1) Insert the ink tank into a slot.
(2) Press on the tab until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
5
Close the front cover.
The print head holder moves to the right.
Note
z Once an ink tank has been used, do not remove it from the
printer and leave it out in the open. This will cause the ink
tank to dry out and the printer may not function properly if
it is reinstalled.
z Color ink consumption may occur even when black-andwhite or grayscale printing is specified.
Color ink is consumed in the head cleaning and deep
cleaning, which are necessary to maintain the printer’s
capabilities.

„ Resetting the Ink Counter
When an ink tank is replaced, the ink counter must be reset. The low ink warning is
only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.
Message Prompting Confirmation of Ink Tank Replacement
When the front cover remains open for a certain period of time, the printer will output a
message prompting you to confirm replacement of the ink tank at the start of the next
print job.
Note
1
If a new user logs on using the Switch User feature in
Windows XP, the printer will not output the message asking
for confirmation of ink tank replacement. This is why it is
important to open the printer driver’s Properties dialog box
and manually reset the ink tank counter in the Maintenance
tab whenever an ink tank is replaced.
Check the message, and click Yes or OK

„ How Low Ink Warning Setting Works
The low ink warning notifies you of low ink levels during printing. The Low Ink Warning
has been preset to be automatically displayed.
When you reset the ink counter, it will assume the ink tank is full regardless of how
much ink actually remains. The reset is the only way to match the counter value with an
actual ink volume. Reset the ink counter when installing a new ink tank.
Low Ink Warning Display
The '!' shows a low ink level in the ink tank.
BJ Status Monitor (Windows)
BJ Status Dialog (Macintosh)
The color ink becomes low.
How to Display Low Ink Warning Correctly
• Reset the ink counter every time you install a new ink tank
The ink counter cannot work correctly unless you synchronize it with the actual ink
level. The ink counter can only be adjusted when it is reset at the time a new ink tank
is installed.
• Do not reset the ink counter of an ink tank in use.
Synchronization of the counter and the actual ink level will not work properly.
Important
36
If you did not reset the counter when you installed the
current ink tanks, the low ink warning may not function
correctly, until the next time you replace the ink tanks. Also,
ensure you treat both counters separately.
