Question about Computers & Internet
The HP Solution Center is a program on your computer that provides a single place where you can control your printer and also receive help on common problems. As part of your HP printer's installation, the Solution Center should have an icon on your desktop which looks like a blue ball with "HP" in white letters inside.
If you do not have one, then you can create one. Using Windows Explorer (Windows Key > E), find the following file on your computer.
C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqdirec.exe"
Then right-click on it and select "Send To: Desktop". You should now have an icon on your desktop for the HP Solution Center.
For why your ink is not lasting very long, this could be many things. But one way you can reduce your ink consumption is by making sure that your are printing in DRAFT mode and BLACK&WHITE for your normal every day printing. You should only use COLOR and NORMAL/BEST selections when printing photos or professional documents.
In addition to these printer settings, please realize that the ink cartridges that were shipped with your printer usually have a low volume of ink so that you have to purchase new ones. When buying new ones, try to find cartridges that advertise "large capacity" because they have more ink and are a better value.
Good luck with your problem. If you found my solution helpful, I would appreciate the feedback.
