Sounds like it's time to replace your ink cartridge. Printing a
crossword puzzle probably places a heavy flow demand on an inkjet
printer. If you Google 'marker-supply-low', the first hit shows a 2007
code fragment showing this error text. The term "marker" in this context
appears to be akin to "magic marker".
