Canon Pixma TR8520 Disappearing Ink

[ Edited ]

Hi, I just recently put 4 brand new ink cartriges into my TR8520, and I literally printed 1 page in black and white, and I've already lost 20% of my color ink somehow? The black cartridge was brand new in same box as the color ones, but somehow the colors managed to magically lose ink.

Hi coloradodusk,


The ink levels are only estimates.  The amount that the ink level indicator decreases is incremental, not gradual.  You will not see the ink level drop again until the next threshold is met.
