Canon Pro 1000 - most used colors

Well, our printer got no usage during 2020, and its forgotten all it’s ink levels. Now I know they were low, but I’m not about to replace all of them at once. Now i know PBK, CO, and GY are brand new, but what colors would you replace in order at this point? Replacing 9 in one week isn’t an option.

I would talk to Canon about this, before you spend as I can't see why it has amnesia !  Try interrogating it  via your PC control panel  aka Quick Utility Toolbox.

As for my usage, all the blacks MBP, PBK, GY, PGY, Co, then  Yellow and  Red.

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .

In a few places I've read that the weight of a fully empty cart is 37 g. Here's an example: https://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Professional-Photo-Printers/Pro-1000-Print-with-quot-Low-Ink-quot-warning/td-p/296487

Yep, weighing them is the way to go.

Would the printer reset it's counter and show them as full when I put them back in?
