How to check ink levels in the Canon ImagePrograf TC20

You can check the remaining amount of ink on the touch screen.

1. Select the INFORMATION ICON on the HOME screen. It looks like a letter I in a grey circle.

2. Select the ESTIMATED INK LEVELS icon. This icon looks like coloured droplets. Simply press and the the current estimated ink levels screen is displayed.

When the ink level is low, the CAUTION icon is displayed above the ink level on the touch screen, which looks like a yellow circle with an exclamation inside and the NO ink icon is displayed when ink runs out., which is a red circle with a cross inside.

When a message appears instructing you to check the remaining ink level, or when performing banner printing or head cleaning that consumes a large amount of ink, check the remaining ink level and refill ink as necessary.

• If ink does not pour into the ink tank, slowly remove and insert the ink bottle.
• Pouring stops automatically when the ink tank is full.
