Abstract

PURPOSE: To enable time for replenishment of each color ink or the like to be easily recognized only by a glance at a status indication device of a printer by a method wherein a residual amount of a plurality of colors ink is detected in each color, the obtained each color ink residual amount information is stored in each color, and the obtained ink residual amount information is indicated in each color.
CONSTITUTION: For generation of ink residual amount information, an ink residual amount detection part 2 obtains residual amount information of Y ink. As a detection means at that time, a method which uses a plurality of sensors for an ink cartridge, a method which calculates from a weight of ink in the cartridge obtained with a unit for detecting a weight of the ink cartridge, a method which calculates from voltage and a resistance value by making a current flow to the ink, etc., are considered. Those inspection means are provided to each Y, M, C, K ink, residual amount information of said ink is converted to an integral value, and is respectively stored in each ink information part 3 of Y, M, C, K. Then, for indication of an ink residual amount, each ink residual amount information is read from the ink information part 3. Thereafter, the residual amount of each ink is indicated on an indication part 4.
