How do I check the ink level from my computer


  • Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.

  • Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.

  • Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.

  • Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.

  • Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.

  • Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.

  • Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.

    SPEEDLITE 580EX TTL Flash: flash is making a constant beating/clicking noise ...


    Loosen the two small screws under the flash on the swivel head. Turn flash on. You may need to twist the head just slightly. Flash bulb moves back and forth in the swivel head when zooming. If you dropped the flash, this may have jarred it from the track. I had the same problem with mine, and the above solution fixed it. Zoom works again and no clicking noise. Let me know.

    Loud clicking noise when turn on printer


    I would check wherever possible for foreign objects in the printer. Failing that, a partial reset is available for your PSC 2410:

    A partial reset can be done by:

    1) Unplugging the power cord (you are already there!)
    2) Press and hold the (#) key and (3) key while plugging the unit back in
