Notes on Printhead life
The estimated printhead life is approximately 26 black or 32 (of any) color cartridge changes whichever comes first. This is not a guarantee of printhead life. The printhead could last longer or shorter than this depending on many environmental and use factors. Print head life is displayed in PTPublisher. Double click on the Ink icon in the lower right corner of PTPublisher to view the print head life as a percentage.
