I used to be able to check the print cartridges ink levels through the "maintenance" tab and now there is no way to access that information. Can I get that feature back? I'm running Windows 7. Thanks

How can i tell the ink levels in the cartridges


You are either low on ink or the yellow cartridge is blocked. If you have a plug in the cartridge, doing a print head cleaning may help. On my inkjet printer, there are two levels of print head cleaning available.

Which brand/model printer do you have? Accessing the print cartridge level depends on the model and usually the software that you have installed. However, the software-provided level is an estimated level and may not accurately reflect the actual ink level in each cartridge. This is only available if you install the full-featured software from the manufacturer.

Generally, to see the estimated levels, if you have the full software installed, open the printer Toolbox. Then find a tab related to Maintenance and then get the estimated ink levels. For my HP printer, there is a specific tab just for the ink levels. (If you use Windows, there may be a icon for the printer in the notification area (on the right with the date/time information) that will let you open the software. Right click on the icon to access specific parts of the program.)

My printer has an option to print a quality test page in the Maintenance section which gives a better look at the ink levels. (For my HP inkjet, this is under the Device Services tab. Print head cleaning is also accessed here.)

Some printers with an LCD panel will let you access these maintenance items directly from the printer.

Please add a comment with your printer for additional information.

I hope this helps.

Printer has stopped printing blue


Make sure that you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Removing then re-inserting the color cartridge into the printer is a quick to minor cartridge communication issues.
Make sure that your color cartridge still has substantial ink level for printing using the Lexmark Solution Center software on your computer.
Click Start > Programs > Lexmark X74-X75 > Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center. Check the ink levels.
If color ink level is still good, then it probably just needs some cleaning. Print quality issues can be due to dirty or clogged print cartridge nozzles. From the Maintenance tab in the Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center, click Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page. Try to print a color page again to verify that the problem with the blue color is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

Hi. I cannot find where to check the ink level in my deskjet 3500. Can you help me? - thanks.


When you installed the printer from the HP-supplied CD-ROM, you installed the HP Printing Assistant. Use its "maintenance" tab to check ink-cartridge levels.

Or, open Control Panel, and open Printers, and right-mouse-click the printer, and choose Properties, and you should be able to use a utility program to check the levels.

My printer won't print in color


Check your color ink levels, the cartridge may need changing.

If they are fine check in the printer settings that you have both color and black cartridges are selected to print from.

Enter control panel, click on Printers (may differ for you), right click your HP D4360 and select properties, you will see a maintenance tab, select the tab and search for Ink Cartridge Settings. In there you can choose what cartridges to print from.

The names of the tabs may differ slightly as its not the exact model I have previously worked with.

When we do a fax test, we get clear print; when we try to print documents nothing appears, altho it goes thru all the right sound motions


Sounds like your colour cartridge is empty. Fax test will pull from black only but documents sometimes use a combination of colours in order to print out black. I suggest checking your ink levels - instructions for windows;

Check 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:
    • Open HP Director , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
    • Open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click Printing Preferences . 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 Check ink levels

Ink


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.
