    Howdy. I've enjoyed this printer, but after about 200-250 4X6 prints, it now
    says that the "ink is running low" on the yellow (6) cartridge. Two
    questions:

    1) How long do I have before I the cartridge is totally out and printing
    stops? I ask this because with my old Epson Color 400 Stylus printer, the
    cartridge light starts blinking but I still often get an additional 40 pages
    of print out of it. I'm assuming that's not the case here. So, about how
    many 4X6 photos should I be able to print?

    2) Just curious -- is this the usual cartridge to go first (yellow)? Should
    I expect the other cartridges to run out quickly?

    Hmm. I will have to take a look at the Canon printers!!! I wish I could
    get 200-250 prints before running low on my printer.

    Hi,

    I have the IP3000, never counted how many more you get but it is quite a few
    from when the low ink warning is displayed, if its urgent I would have a
    another cartridge standing by. When it says the cartridge is empty, it
    pretty much is, where as with Epson (providing its not a chipped
    cartridge) you could take it out and put it back in again and it would
    normally be good for another cycle.

    As for your other question I am not sure, with me it is normally the cyan
    cartridge but I think depends on what you print.

    Yes, we are very pleased with the printer.

    BTW, now the magenta is low too. I do have an extra set. I'm going to go
    until one cartridge is completely out and then replace both.
