Abstract

PURPOSE: To prevent recording quality from decreasing by a method wherein elements in relation to a use degree of a head are counted and when, at least, any one thereof reaches a specific value, a warning is issued.
CONSTITUTION: For instance, whether an ink tank 122 is vacant or not is judged. When vacant, the number of replacements of the ink tank of NV-RAM is decremented, and whether the number of replacements of ink becomes zero or not is judged. When zero, warning for replacement of a recording head is issued. The limit number of drivings concerning element density of and the number of elements of a recording head and/or the limit number of replacements of the ink tank are thus stored in a memory means. Every time the recording head is driven and/or every time the ink tank is replaced, said number is summed up to be compared with the limit number of times. When the limit number of times is exceeded, replacement of the recording head is urged by warning. Therefore, deterioration of the recording head can be always monitored, and high quality recording can be obtained.
