print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and all-in-one maintenance, and all
colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace
cartridge” signal. For details, see | 11 For convenient and reasonable recycling options, visit | 12 SmartWay is an innovative partnership of the
