How do I check ink levels on HP 7760 printer

Dear Jeannine,


Check estimated ink or toner levels for your printer to determine if you need to replace any cartridges.
NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, consider having a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace ink cartridges until you are prompted to.
Many HP printers display ink and toner cartridge levels on the control panel. Look for an ink drop or cartridge icon or an Ink Levels menu to check the status of each cartridge.
Figure : Examples of ink and toner level icons and menu selections on various HP printer control panels

If your printer does not have an ink level icon or menu, continue with these steps to check ink or toner levels from your computer or mobile device.HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your printer model, and then clickDownload next to the full feature driver or HP Easy Start to download and install the driver.

Hp photosmart touchscreen not working how can I check ink levels

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.

Find out much ink left

If you have installed the full feature drivers for this printer, one can open the printer software and then select Printer actions>>click maintenance tasks and then select Printer toolbox and then select the Estimated ink level tab to view the ink levels for the printer. I hope that this helps. If not, here's a link to a downloadable user's manual with lots of info on your printer.

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.

For this case first is try to check level of Ink. 

-Click start or Windows logo.
-Go to All Programs or Programs, then select the printer program folder from the list.
-Select Printer or printer home.

-Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

If the printer level is ok, try to run the test page to check if it will print colored, if it is the issue is only in the settings of the printer.

Refilled ink

Try checking under maintenance or ink settings, sometimes if the cartridges have been refilled they are not reset correctly and the ink level checking fails to work. There is sometimes and option to ignore these for refilled or compatible cartridges.

Control Panel
--> Printers and Faxes
--> Right Click on the Printer ICON and select Properties
--> Look for a "Maintenance" or "Tools" Tab across the top click one
--> Look for an option for "In" or "Ink Settings"
and click on one of these options to run

If you cannot find that then Try going into Control Panel
--> Printers and Faxes
--> Right Clicking on your printer
--> Look for a "Maintenance" or "Tools" Tab across the top click one
--> Look for an option for "Cleaning" or "Deep Cleaning"
