Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a HP C3180 All-in One printer, I have just replaced the black ink. It is working fine except for when the screen comes up to show the ink levels the black ink shows nothing and has a question mark beside it. Does anyone know why? Like I say the ink and printer work fine. Thanks
The ink cartridges have a ink memory chip inside. it operates on the number of pages printed not the actual amount of ink inside the cartridge. if you go to some sites that refill cartridges, they'll tell you how to reset the "ink left" memory. the ink is in a sponge inside the cartridge. it flows by gravity to the printhead. the sponge is an open celled poly sponge. there are tiny air flow passages just under the tape on top of the cartridge. I have an all-in-one 5610 and when I get a low ink indication I just keep printing. when the copy gets blotchy I just replace the cartridge. If my color is off, I can usually refill the color and keep printing. I can refill the cartridge twice before the bubble jet printhead needs a new cartridge.

A yellow exclamation mark in any application means the attatched item to it is usually in error state, but you say the printer works fine. Most people would tell you to not touch what is working!!! But leaving anything showing error risks further confusion and problems. I think that you problem is probably very simple. Do you know hao to reset your ink levels. Read your manual that came with disk or go to the onscreen help. You may find this will remove the issue. If it does not, then you may have a corrupted driver etc, and may need to uninstall the printer, and reinstall it again. Good luck.
