Title: DECREMENTING A PRINTING FLUID-BASED ESTIMATE OF A NUMBER OF PAGES THAT CAN BE PRINTED ACCORDING TO DIFFERENT INTERVALS
Abstract:
In one example, method includes displaying an estimate of the number of pages that can be printed from a total amount of printing fluid including a printing fluid supply and a printing fluid reserve. The estimate is decremented in amounts of a first interval, in response to a first sensor signal indicating that the printing fluid supply is not empty. The estimate is decremented in amounts of a second interval that is smaller than the first interval, in response to a second sensor signal indicating that the printing fluid supply is empty.
