Replacing Ink Tanks
A message in the printer driver screen or in the printer operation panel

that it is time to replace the ink tank. The printer is provided with 6
replaceable ink tanks; Yellow (Y), Magenta (M), Photo Magenta (PM), Cyan
(C), Photo Cyan (PC), and Black (Bk).
Note
z The following ink tanks are available for replacement:
• Yellow Ink tank BCI-1302Y

• Photo Magenta Ink tank BCI-1302PM
• Cyan Ink tank BCI-1302C
• Photo Cyan Ink tank BCI-1302PC
• Black Ink tank BCI-1302Bk
When to Replace an Ink Tank
When either of the 2 messages below appears, you should have extra ink
tanks on hand ready for replacement.
TWhen the “Ink Check” Message is Displayed
When the ink level in a tank is very low, the ink check message is displayed
but printing continues. When this message is displayed, this means that the
ink tank will run out of ink very soon. The capital letter(s) in the message
indicate the ink tank color: Y (Yellow), M (Magenta), PM (Photo Magenta),
C (Cyan), PC (Photo Cyan), Bk (Black). After this message is displayed,
have the correct color ink tank on hand for replacement.
Note

z When the ink level in a tank is very low, you may not be able to perform Head
Cleaning C, Head Cleaning B, or other head cleaning tasks that consume ink. In
such a case, perform printhead cleaning (“Head Cleaning”) after replacing the ink
tank.
z When the ink runs out in more than one tank, the mark of each empty tank is
displayed one by one.
TWhen the “Replace Tank” Message Is Displayed
When ink in an ink tank runs out, the replace tank message is displayed and
printing halts. Replace the ink tank when this message is displayed. The
capital letters in the message indicate the ink tank color: Y (Yellow), M
(Magenta), PM (Photo Magenta), C (Cyan), PC (Photo Cyan), Bk (Black).
Replace the ink tank with a new one of the same color.
Note
z When the ink runs out in more than one tank, the mark of each empty tank is
displayed one by one. After you replace all the ink tanks of the displayed colors,
you can resume printing.
Handling Ink Tank Precautions
Follow the precautions below when handling ink tanks.
Caution
z Store the ink tanks out of the reach of small children. If a child accidentally
ingests ink from an ink tank, contact a physician immediately.
Important
z To avoid spilling and damage from stains, never drop or shake an ink tank.
z There may be some ink on or around the ink port of an ink removed from the
printer, so always handle a removed ink tank carefully to avoid staining your
clothing or the work area.
z Do not break the seal of the protective packing on an ink tank until you are ready to
install it in the printer. After breaking the seal, install the ink tank immediately. Not
installing and ink tank immediately after breaking its seal could cause poor
printing.
z An ink tank should be used up within six months after its seal is broken. Not using
the ink tank within this time period could cause poor printing.
z Never leave an ink tank removed from the printer for longer than one month. This
could lead to ink clogging in the tank and poor printing.

Caution About Using Refilled Ink Tanks for This
Printer
The ink tanks specified for use with this printer are provided with an ink
level detection function to prevent the tanks from running out of ink during
printing and to prevent damage to the printhead.
When using refilled ink tanks, the printer cannot detect the ink level and stop
printing due to ink shortage. If you use such ink tanks, then the ink level
detection function must be switched off.
Printing with the ink level detection function switched off could damage the
printer, especially the printhead, or could cause the printer to operate
abnormally in other ways. Canon is not responsible for damages or injuries
caused by such actions.
Caution
z Once the ink level detection feature is switched off, the ink level detection
information cannot be recovered. If you want to display the ink level
detection information, you must switch the ink level detection function on

Cleaning the Printhead
When the ink nozzles of the printhead become clogged, you can restore
normal operation by cleaning the printhead.
Cleaning the printhead consumes ink, so clean the printhead only when it is
necessary.
Types of Printhead Cleaning
There are 3 methods for printhead cleaning.
THead Cleaning A
Perform when the printing is faint or when dust has collected on the
printhead. This cleaning method consumes the least amount of ink. Head
Cleaning A requires about 1 minute to complete.
THead Cleaning B
Perform when the printing is blank or when Head Cleaning A does not
correct the problem. Head Cleaning B requires about 2 minutes to
complete.
THead Cleaning C
Perform when the printer has not been used for a long period, or when
Head Cleaning B does not correct the problem. This cleaning method
consumes the most ink. Head Cleaning C requires about 3 minutes.
Note
When there is little ink remaining, printhead cleaning B or C would not be
performed properly. Check the ink tanks to make sure that more than 40% of all
inks remain, before you clean the printhead. If there is little ink remaining,
replace the ink tank with new tank before you perform printhead cleaning.
Head Cleaning Procedure
Follow the procedure below to clean the printhead. The procedure is
basically the same for all 3 methods for cleaning the printhead.
• If 1 execution of Head Cleaning A does not correct the problem,
perform Head Cleaning B.
• If Head Cleaning B does not correct the problem, repeat Head
Cleaning B 2 or 3 times.
7-28
Troubleshooting
28
• If 3 consecutive cleanings with Head Cleaning B does not solve the
problem, then perform Head Cleaning C.
• If Head Cleaning C does not restore normal operation of the printhead,
then the printhead is damaged and should be replaced. (ÆP.6-11)
