How can i tell the ink levels in the cartridges


You are either low on ink or the yellow cartridge is blocked. If you have a plug in the cartridge, doing a print head cleaning may help. On my inkjet printer, there are two levels of print head cleaning available.

Which brand/model printer do you have? Accessing the print cartridge level depends on the model and usually the software that you have installed. However, the software-provided level is an estimated level and may not accurately reflect the actual ink level in each cartridge. This is only available if you install the full-featured software from the manufacturer.

Generally, to see the estimated levels, if you have the full software installed, open the printer Toolbox. Then find a tab related to Maintenance and then get the estimated ink levels. For my HP printer, there is a specific tab just for the ink levels. (If you use Windows, there may be a icon for the printer in the notification area (on the right with the date/time information) that will let you open the software. Right click on the icon to access specific parts of the program.)

My printer has an option to print a quality test page in the Maintenance section which gives a better look at the ink levels. (For my HP inkjet, this is under the Device Services tab. Print head cleaning is also accessed here.)

Some printers with an LCD panel will let you access these maintenance items directly from the printer.

Please add a comment with your printer for additional information.

I hope this helps.

Wont print. solid red ink light. wont display ink levels


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My Hp deskjet F4235 is not printing very good. I can barely read what it prints out. My printer is telling me that the ink is full.


You may need to run the maintenance processes such as head cleaning and alignment. It should be one of the tabs under the printer properties. Right click on the printer, choose printer properties, Maintenance. It depends from printer to printer. The alignment most likely is the culprit.

I REFILLED THE BLACK (C8727) , AND THE COLOR (C8728) ,


Go to:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=75035&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Select Vista (or Vista 64-bit if you are using the 64-bit version) and download the appropriate drivers from there. These drivers should give you access to all of the necessary maintenance options including resetting ink levels (tell the driver you are installing new cartridges, remove and reinstall the existing cartridges to make it do the reset).

Test page coming out green indicates a problem with the ink cartridges since it should be using the black cart for most of the page.

Red will only print on test page.


So what you need to do is clean the cartridge from the printer toolbox..do all the three steps cleaning..(clean cartridge,prime cleaning,intermediate cleaning)..
once the cleaning is done..try to make a copy..if its still the same..change both the ink cartridge and then try to make a copy..if it resolves the issue then cartridge is defective..if it does not resolve the issue then printer is defective..

How to change black ink cartridge of HP Deskjet 6980


Lift the cover up.

The ink jet carriage should park in the center of the carriage.

Gently lift on the front of the ink jet until it removes. Some you have to lift up and some you have to lift down on. Just be careful.

HP inkjet cartridges tell you on the front of the stick by a dot weather it is tri color or black.

Re: Smudging


Try Cleaning the printheads. you usually have a utilitie to do this in :- Printer preferences. Also try several Print test Pages. It appears that your getting a surge of ink, at the initial printing stage. use standard paper to do all tests with. 1:- it,s cheaper. 2:- it,ll help soak-up any surplus ink. whereas the glossy paper does,nt soak it up too well. If these solutions don,t help. check HPs site for fault diagnosing and repairing.
Hope this helps you in the right direction.

Printer color problem


The ink cartridge cleaning process can be performed even with the alignment message showing in the display. Follow the steps below to perform an ink cartridge cleaning process from the front panel:
  1. On the front panel, press Menu or Setup (depending on the model).
  2. Press the Right Arrow (>) until Maintenance or Tools appears, and then press the Enter or OK .
  3. Clean ink Cartridges should appear in the display. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process. A page will be printed during the cleaning process with all of the colors on it. If any of the colors or the black are missing, faded, or streaked on the alignment page, there is a ink cartridge problem.
