Am really pleased with the i960. I made a great buy.

I got the message several days ago that the black cartridge was getting low. I am still making fine prints.

Will I get another message when it is really time to replace the cartridge? Will the level in the illustration continue to go down? :?

Is there any danger in continuing until the absence of black is apparent in the quality of the picture or text?:?

Merci vielmals!

Yes, you will get another message saying you are OUT OF INK, which means it's really time to change cartridge.The warning will also tell you that if you continue to print when the ink is out can possibly cause damage to your print head...

I usually just pop out the cartridge and have a look. if the well is dry, i replace it. there should be enough ink the sponge to finish a print job or two even if the well is dry, but don't push it as your print quality may suffer.

I wait until I receive the final warning from the printer.

Thanks for all the replies.

Final Warning:idea:

Is that the one that says you are out of ink?

When the printer issues the out of ink warning is what I called the final warning.

There is one littlething that I learned with my old S800 and use on my i9100 when I am not going to be able to get out and buy a replacement soon.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"When you get the out of ink notification, I continue the page it is printing and cancel the rest of the print job (if I'm printing at the time). I turn the printer off and let it sit a couple of days and not print anything. This allows ink still caught in the foam to settle down. I have gotten away with up to 10-15 more 4x6 prints out of a tank.
