Adding supplies

The printers normally display "Out of Supplies" messages when an internal usage counter reaches a fixed threshold. You can defer taking action on most "Out of Supplies" messages for some amount of additional usage. During that additional usage time, the "Out of Supplies" message reappears each time an error condition is detected or an end-of-forms is detected. When you use a roll-feed preprocessing device, the printer checks the level of the supplies every 4000 feet after an initial deferred "Out of Supplies" message was presented and displays an "Out of Supplies" message at that time, if no end-of-forms or error condition is detected.
