Replacement Intervals and Control Panel Messages

When a print cartridge approaches the end of its useful life, the control panel displays a message recommending that you order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing you to replace the cartridge. The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), magenta (M), cyan (C), and yellow (Y). Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays a REPLACE <COLOR> CARTRIDGE message. The control panel display will also indicate the color that should be replaced (unless a genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed).
