There are two ways. Take out the cartridge and look, or move it a little to estimate. Use software that comes with the printer. Not all ink jet printers come with software to check the ink.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    Left ink cartridge incorrect. It is the right ink


    A trick which may work is cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer.

    Make sure you've switched it off first, I'd try gently buffing with a soft dry cloth first.

    HP reccommend using distilled water and cotton buds, but not alcohol based cleaning fluids.

    Allow the water to evaporate before replacing cartridge and switching on.

    Why does some black test come out blurry when the rest is good?


    Chances are there's a build up of ink at the ink cartridge. It’s also possible that the ink cartridge is defective. Remove the black cartridge, grab a few cotton swabs. Drip a few drops of water onto the cotton swab and wipe the copper cartridge contacts.
    Dampen a lint free cloth and wipe the bottom of the ink cartridge. (This will free up and remove any ink build-up). Re-assemble and print a test page. If this does not help use the printer’s software and run, "Clean the print heads". If using Win XP left click once on the Start button. Slide up to and left click on Printers and Faxes. Within the Printers and Faxes window right click once on the printer with a little black check mark next to it. From the pop-up list, left click once on "Properties".
    Than left click once on Printing Preferences. Than, Left click once on Services. Clean the print heads here.

    Hope you find this helpful!

    Re Canon 2600 printer.I recently purchased a black Ink cartridge and replaced the old one. A week later the color cartridge also shows empty even though I hardly use color. Can I not print in greyscale...


    Hi,
    Please follow the instructions below from Cannon support page...

    Setting the Ink Cartridge When printing, you can specify which ink cartridge to use. This is convenient if one of the ink cartridges becomes empty, you can continue printing by specifying the ink cartridge that still has ink. Note:
    • When the following settings are configured, Black Only is disabled. The color ink cartridge is used to print.
    • A type of paper other than Plain Paper is selected for Media Type on the Main tab.
    • Borderless Printing is checked on the Page Setup tab.
    • Canon recommends that you use the ink cartridges installed in the printer and not remove them until the ink runs out.

    You can set the Ink Cartridge Settings from the Maintenance tab in the printer driver.
    To access the printer driver from the application software, click here.
    To access the printer driver from the Printers folder, click here.

    2. Select your printer model name and click 'Preferences' (or 'Properties'). The printer driver setup window appears.

    How do i check ink supply left in cartridges


    Hi there

    Thanks for posting your problem on fixya

    the cartridge will be seen moving left and right whenever you take any print out... just open the flap you will see the cartridge.. try to pull out slowly some printers doesnt have flaps..in such cases just put your hand inside the printer and try to pull it out. Take out your cartridge and see the ink level if your has ink it means your ink supply is correct otherwise refill it

    Is this solution helps you then please vote for me

    Thanks
