Replace the Ink Tanks

Instructions to replace the ink tanks for printers only using the BCI-15 ink tanks.

Important Notes: 

  • When an ink tank is replaced, the ink counter must be reset.
  • To maintain optimal print quality, use an ink tank within six months of its first use. 
  • 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. 
  • Color ink consumption may occur even when black-and-white 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. 
  • When an ink tank runs out of ink, replace the ink tank with a new one immediately. If printing is continued with no ink in the ink tank, a problem may occur. And, the Low Ink Warning dialog which tells the exchange time of an ink tank cannot be indicated properly.
  • Handle ink tanks carefully to avoid staining clothing or the surrounding area. 
  • Discard empty ink tanks according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.

Suitable Ink Tanks::

  • Black Ink Tank BCI-15 Black
  • Color Ink Tank BCI-15 Color

  4. Remove the new ink tank from its package.

  5. Remove the orange protective cap.

    Caution:  Do not reset the protective cap after it is removed. Discard them in accordance with the local recycling rules. Do not touch the ink port which is accessible when the protective cap is removed, to prevent ink feeding problems
