If you have it connected to a computer then the HP utilities should be able to show the ink levels. You can also check the printer properties in the driver for a maintenance tab that should show ink levels as well.
Follow these steps to check the ink levels:
>Click Start .
>Click Printers and Faxes .
>Right-click the icon for your printer , and then click Printing Preferences .
>Click the Features tab.
>Click the Printer Services button. The Toolbox window opens.
>Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab. A window opens that indicates the estimated ink level of each cartridge.
NOTE:Depending on the printer, the estimated ink level indicators can vary in appearance.
>If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
well i dont have a hp but this works for me > go to control panel, then click on "printers and faxes", then click on the printer icon, then somewhere you should find "printing prefrences," and it should show the ink levels. again, i don't have your type of printer so it might not be exactly like this, but you should be able to find the ink levels under "printers and faxes" in control panel. good luck
The simple solution is to buy the HP cartridges. Often times,.. MOST times, aftermarket ink cartridges and refill kits are an inferior product. The difference is not always noticeable right away, but almost always rears it's head in the end. This is usually due to the ink being of a different viscosity than the original ink. Which leads to sloppy prints, sensor errors, leaky or dead jets.
Personally I recommend everyone buy Laser printers. With prices where they are these days, there is no reason for anyone to buy an inkjet printer. Lasers will cost more up front, but are much cheaper per page and generally longer lasting.
1. First go to your HP Solutions Center (for a PC it's START --> PROGRAMS --> HP --> HP Solutions Center
2. Once that comes up click on SETTINGS --> STATUS --> VIEW INK LEVELS
3. To set your computer up to automatically tell you the ink levels everytime you print, then click CONFIGURATION and check the box that says "Display Ink Status Window", click the APPLY button.
Inkjet printers do not detect ink levels period.
An estimate of level is made by the software. It calculates the volume of ink that was dispensed during printing pixel by pixel.
If you re-install the software the tally is lost.
If you want to convince the software that the cartridges are full then go though the procedure of renewing the cartriges but put the old ones back in.
If I were you, I'd completely ignore the displayed levels of ink, its worthless technocrap.
Your eyes are the best judge of whether the cartridges need replacing or not when you look at your prints.
