Question about HP Photosmart 4180 All-in-One Printer

Unable to read icons on display monitor

Hi I have a HP photosmart desktop 4180 series. I recently put in a new color cartridge and the small display at the top is telling me something, however the icons are so small I cannot read them. I do get ink fillups at Walgreen cheap. My new refill on my cartridge is not acurate with the color. the greens are yellow when I did a test page. Walgreen said they would fill it again and if that did not work refund my money, however the issue with me dicihering the display is frustrating. It has two really small icons on the bottom left. How do you read the display

Thank You

I am unable to print on my HP Officejet Pro 8500. i have recently replaced the 940 black cartridge and since then have been unable to print. i notice there are print cartridges in the main body as well...


you can check the ink level from following steps Method one: Check the ink levels from the idle screen on the color graphics display Look for four icons at the bottom of the color graphics display. The icons represent the ink level remaining in each of the four color ink cartridges: black, yellow, light cyan (blue), and light magenta (pink). A larger and more accurate view of the ink levels can be displayed from the Setup menu. If an ink cartridge containing non-HP ink is being used, a question mark displays instead of the ink drop in the icon for that cartridge. The HP All-in-One cannot detect the amount of ink remaining in ink cartridges that contain non-HP ink. Figure 1: Non-HP ink iconc00841629.jpg NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. If a hollow ink drop icon displays, the ink cartridge represented by that color icon has very little ink remaining and will need to be changed soon. You might be able to continue printing for a short period of time with ink remaining in the print head assembly. Replace the ink cartridge when the Replace Soon warning message displays on the color graphics display. Figure 2: Low ink level iconc00841630.jpg When the Empty Ink message appears on the color graphics display, the indicated ink cartridge is out of ink. Replace the indicated ink cartridge. Method two: Check ink levels from the Windows computer The estimated amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges can be checked from the computer. See the on-screen HP Director Help for information on checking the ink levels from the Printer
  1. Open the printer Toolbox. To do so, do one of the following:
    • Open HP Solution Center, click the Settings menu, then point to Print Settings , then click Printer Toolbox .
    • Right-click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the tray, then point to your printer model name, and click Display Printer Toolbox .
    The Toolbox opens.
  2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink level gauges display.
Method three: Check ink levels from the Setup menu
  1. Press Setup on the printer control panel.
  2. Scroll down and select Display Ink Gauge . The Ink Gauge status from the Tools menu will only display on the color graphics display.

If the ink level is low and the cartridge is new please contact the dealer from whom you got the cartridge and if it shows that the ink level is good enough please comment so that i can give you another step to perform

I keep getting the message "remove and check cartridge on right. I do this, but it doesn't solve the problem. The printer worked fine until I installed a new black ink cartridge. After so many times of...


The cartridge on the right is the black ink cartridge. The one on the left is the color.
Make sure you have pushed the cartridge in all of the way and that you have removed the tape cover from the cartridge before you insert it.
If you bought aftermarker or third party cartridges, you have a cartridge that is not filled properly. If you purchased it from a local retailer, return it and try another cartridge.
The Hp reads the levels from the gold connectors on the cartridge. If they are blocked, or damaged or the cartridge is not full, you will get this message.

Reddish tint on all pictires printed on my 4180. Same pictures prin perfectly on hp 7260.


You are experiencing a printer cartridge problem. Sounds like some of the colors in the print cartidge have run out, either that or the nozzles are clogged. Run a nozzle check from the printer software, if it does not fix, try a new color cartridge.

Let me know how it works out for you.
