HP 6110xi - How to check ink level?

I used to be able to check the estimated ink level, but not anymore.
I'm running Windows XP Professional, service pack 2.
This feature must have been disabled by some upgrade, but which one?
Maybe I need a new driver???

SOURCE: Cannot see ink levels

Inkjet printers do not detect ink levels period. An estimate of level is made by the software. It calculates the volume of ink that was dispensed during printing pixel by pixel. If you re-install the software the tally is lost. If you want to convince the software that the cartridges are full then go though the procedure of renewing the cartriges but put the old ones back in. If I were you, I'd completely ignore the displayed levels of ink, its worthless technocrap. Your eyes are the best judge of whether the cartridges need replacing or not when you look at your prints.

SOURCE: estimated ink levels are incorrect

The simple solution is to buy the HP cartridges. Often times,.. MOST times, aftermarket ink cartridges and refill kits are an inferior product. The difference is not always noticeable right away, but almost always rears it's head in the end. This is usually due to the ink being of a different viscosity than the original ink. Which leads to sloppy prints, sensor errors, leaky or dead jets.
Personally I recommend everyone buy Laser printers. With prices where they are these days, there is no reason for anyone to buy an inkjet printer. Lasers will cost more up front, but are much cheaper per page and generally longer lasting.

SOURCE: can't find tool box to check ink level - HP 6310 using Vista 2007

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.

Check ink levels Use one of the following methods to check the ink levels. NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator will be inaccurate or unavailable. Method one: Use HP Solution Center to check ink levels HP Solution Center is software that acts as a centralized point of access for tasks such as scanning, printing, and copying. The software is part of the software package that comes with your product. When you perform a standard installation of the HP software, HP Solution Center is automatically installed. You must have the full-feature print driver, which includes HP Solution Center, installed to use this method. If you do not have the full-feature print driver installed on your computer, you can install it now. Alternatively, you can use 'Method two: Check ink levels from the software program' to check the ink levels. Click this link (c02463264) (in English) to see instructions for installing the full-feature print driver and HP Solution Center.
  1. Open HP Solution Center.
    • Windows XP : On the Windows taskbar, click Start , click All Programs , point to HP , and then click HP Solution Center .
    • Windows Vista : On the Windows taskbar, click the Windows icon (c01364735.gif), click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center .
    • Windows 7 : Click the Windows icon (c01364735.gif ), click Programs , click HP, and then click HP Solution Center .
  2. Click Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox .
  3. Click the Device Services tab, and then click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.

    How do you check ink levels


    Introduction This describes how to check the estimated ink level in the cartridge. NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, keep a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. Ink cartridges do not need to be replaced until print quality becomes unacceptable. Checking ink levels Perform the following steps to check the estimated ink levels: NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator will be inaccurate or unavailable.
    1. Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
      • Click Start and select HP Solution Center . Select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
      • In your printing application, click File , click Print , and click Properties . Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.
    2. The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Figure 1: Estimated ink levels

    Normally when you install the print software you install HP Director or solution centre software that has a estimated ink staus monitor..from user manual

    Check the estimated ink levels You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace a print cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the print cartridges. Tip You can also print a self-test report to see if your print cartridges might need to be replaced. For more information, see Print a self-test report. To check the ink levels from the HP Director (Windows) 1. In the HP Director (or HP Solution Center), click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox. Note You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click Service this device. 2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear. To check the ink levels from the HP Image Zone software (Mac) 1. In the HP Director (OS 9) or HP Image Zone (OS X), choose Settings, and then choose Maintain Printer. 2. If the Select Printer dialog box appears, select your HP All-in-One, and then click Utilities. 3. From the pop-up menu, choose Ink Level. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

    Print a self-test report If you are experiencing problems with printing, print a self-test report before you replace the print cartridges. This report provides useful information on several aspects of your device, including your print cartridges.
    Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the paper tray.

    Press and hold the Cancel / Resume button and then press the Start Copy Color button
    The HP All-in-One prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
