The installation disk for your printer has a setup wizard that monitors your ink levels in your printer. Go through the installation again as it will not hurt anything and you should find it on one of your pop up screens that it leads you to.

Go to print - then to properties - then services- click service this device - click ink levels.

But it will only show you the ink levels if you are using genuine HP catridges - otherwise it
shows empty.

Hope this helps

How do I check ink levels on my HP deskjet D4160 printer?

Here is what I found on the Web. You can click on the link below, to see Full Instructions. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

View estimated ink levels
Follow these instructions to view the estimated ink levels of the print cartridges that are installed in the printer:

1. Open the printer Toolbox.
2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.

Note If the print cartridges were used before being installed in the printer, the
estimated ink levels will not appear on the Estimated Ink Level tab.
The Estimated Ink Level tab also contains print cartridge ordering information. To view
this information, click the Print Cartridge Information button.

Thanks and good luck.......

Printer says out of ink, won't print

Try this In service mode.
Put Stop/reset 4 times orange => reset waste ink.
Put stop/reset 8 times orange => set level ink.
This isn't set level but it disable ink check. The LED warning still blink but no error code appear anymore.

HP Deskjet 5940 reversed ink cartridges

It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.
