Ink Level Question: Pixma MX700
Previously the ink level low monitor showed cyan, magenta, and then black cartridges needed to be changed. Since it would not allow copies to be made in the copy mode, I dutifully went out and emptied my wallet for more. I also read somewhere (owners manual??) that proceeding w/o replacement of the ink could result in damage to the printer if the ink got too low.
That seemed to be academic as long as some interlock preventing copying.
Recently, the yellow cartridge showed up as low and again I was unable to override in the copy mode. Before I could replace it, DW printed an internet page in the print mode. Just for kicks, I tried to make a copy in the copy mode. It worked.
Now what........is it ok to just ignore the warning light? or is that damage threat real? or maybe it's somewhere in between......I can copy/print N pages before it becomes a problem? Did I replace the others way too early as designed for Canon's profit? Confused now............advice appreciated.
