  • Step 1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.
  • Step 2 Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.
  • Step 3 Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.
  • Step 4 Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.
  • Step 5 Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.
  • Step 6 Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.
  • Step 7 Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.

SOURCE: HP 6940 Deskjet Low Ink

It is not uncommon for a refilled HP ink cartridge to register as empty. If it was otherwise filled properly, it should yield the correct number of pages, but you may not be able to get the warning light to go out.

You can try tapping the cartridge on a hard surface. This only works sometimes. Be careful not to splash any ink.

I hope this helps.

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge


My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected

Printer Toolbox Not Recognizing New Black Ink


The Deskjet 6940 will only show ink level for original HP cartrdgies. Refilled or reman cartridges will show as empty or unknown in the toolbox. This is not an issue with the driver, the cartrdige itself has information that it has been previously used and this is not resettable. You can continue to print with a cartrdige that has unknown ink levels, you will just not get low ink warnings.
