"Expiration" is displayed

  • Ink has an expiration date to prevent deterioration of image quality.

Ink has an expiration date to maintain its quality, and once the expiration date is exceeded, an expiration warning will appear.
Expired ink can cause issues such as firing and changes in color quality.  Please replace the ink with fresh ink within the recommended period to avoid these problems.
After the expiration date, the ink can still be used for up to two months, but after three months, the ink becomes unusable (printing will no longer be possible).

Example) If an ink bottle has an expiration date of March 2023

Please see the following for the location where the expiration date of ink is indicated.

* When "Expiration" waring occurs, please make sure to check the expiration dates of all ink bottles of every color, just to be safe.


Make sure to replace inks as soon as possible for expired ink can cause image quality deterioration such as color change.
