Can I Still Print When ‘Ink Levels are Low’?

There is no rush to replace ink cartridges when you get low ink warnings. Most modern printers have a warning for ink levels, alerting you when ink is low. However, the accuracy of these warnings varies between manufacturers and models. Some warn of low ink levels a long time before ink levels are critically low.

The only way to truly find out how much ink you have left is to print until the quality goes down or the printer stops. Once you know the ink has definitely run out, you can remove the ink cartridge and replace it.

By doing it this way, you will have a rough idea of how legitimate you ink warnings are. You’ll be able to print in the future and know how much you can roughly print once the warnings come on.
