Sorry about the format, I could only do screen captures of the PDF, in order to show you the pictures as well as the text. I don't think it would have been understandable without the picture guide..

First plug the printer to the computer .
Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen.
Click on the control panel icon.

Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.
Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.

Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.

I have a f4480 hp printer. Used it about 3 times in last 6 mos. It was not printing with the black ink so I just bought #74 & #75 ink from Staples. Now the yellow light on the front of the printer...


If the ink cartridge in the printer is 6 months old, it maybe dried out and would need to be replaced with a new cartridge. When buying new cartridges from places like Walmart, Target etc. check the dates on the packages before buying. Sometimes the cartridges will set in the store too long and dry out.

Welcome. I bought a new Cartridge (color and black) to my printer HP Photosmart C4480, and all the time a view question mark (?) on the window with ink levels. Maybe I can reset the printer in some way?...


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software , then connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels. This must reset the fault on the system.

Your ink cartridges have to be the correct ones.
You need a #99 and #74 and a #75 anything else is incorrect

Incompatible print cartridge


Take out the print cartridge. Clean the points on the cartridge with cotton swab and try using it again.

Hp c4480 prints blue instead of black


Check the print properties and verify the black ink cartridge still has ink in it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad ink cartridge. If the cartridge has not been used for a while, the ink gums up the nozzle. You can try cleaning the ink cartridge and slot with alcohol. However, new color and black cartridges may be the best solution.

HP photosmart C4480 printer cartridge incompatible error


Well....I solved the problem......bought a new Canon printer!!

I tried everything...unplugging, cleaning everything that was mentioned above. I was onto HP online support several time, but they were absolutely no help at all...they basically told me that the cartridge must be damaged or ink dried up and to buy a new cartridge to see if the error persisted.....I don't think so!!!
I will never by HP again after having issues with the last two I have had. I love my new Canon printer it is EVERYTHING that HP wasnt.
