Ink-backup mode
Use the ink-backup mode to operate the printer with only one print cartridge. The ink-
backup mode is initiated when a print cartridge is removed from the print cartridge cradle.
Note
When the printer operates in ink-backup mode, a message is displayed on
screen. If the message is displayed and two print cartridges are installed in the
printer, verify that the protective piece of plastic tape has been removed from each
print cartridge. When plastic tape covers the print cartridge contacts, the printer
cannot detect that the print cartridge is installed.
