HP 6310 printer ink Level doesen't indicate any ink in printer
I purchased subject printer to replace a HP Photosmart that had used the same HP ink cartridges as the HP 6310 requires. Since the old cartridges were still over half full, I decided to use up the ink in those cartridges before replacing them with the new ones.
My ink levels have shown empty since day one although my print quality is good.

Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.
if you are using a refilled catridge you would not get ink levels right.
if you want right ink level use genuine ink catridges.
you can try taking out the catridges turning off the printer and turning it back on and then reinstalling the catridges.it might not help so if possible buy hp ink catridges.
, click All Programs
, and then click
View ink levels
If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.

doesnt matter most printers have a feature of their own to check ink levels. press the setup button on the printer and scroll down(with the arrow buttons) till you get tools press ok and now scroll through until you get ink level and select it by pressing the ok button,walla you should have your ink levels in front of you.
Now about the hp solution centre/hp director icon on your desktop (if you have installed the software). Click on settings and click on printer toolbox and now check your estimated ink levels it will show the ink levels of the printer cartridges.
Remove the black cartridge from the all-in-one and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with a soft cotton cloth and then try to align the cartridges once and then try to print the self-test page. Also check the ink level and expiry date present on the cartridge.
