    Thanks!!
    I noticed last night that there are two "spots" for a cartridge.
    Should I have two cartriges in there?? I only have one.

Hi,
Ink-backup mode lets you continue printing with one print
cartridge when the other print cartridge has run out of ink.
Ink-backup mode allows the printer to operate using only one print cartridge. It is initiated
when a print cartridge is removed from the cradle.
Exiting Ink Backup mode
Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode.


Cheers !!!!

How do I check ink levels on my HP deskjet D4160 Printer


When your printer was installed, it came with a CD with a complete software package for your printer to report (ink levels/diagnostics/etc) to the computer. If it was installed in Windows 7 (and below) it would be found at "Start" (button) > "HP" > Deskjet D4160 > Deskjet D4160. In Windows 8 look for HP. Once you've opened the application it will query the printer for its status. One of the icons will show the "Estimated Ink Levels".

If you can't find the software installed or the CD you can find it at HP's (US-English) support page for your D4160 is at the link below. Persons from other countries you can find their language at HP.com/support. There you can find everything you need.

Ink Jet Notes:
·Printers can be set to "economy" (default or individual job) to save ink if high quality is not an issue.
·Follow the user's manual or print using all cartridges at least monthly to insure the cartridge jets do not get fouled with dried up ink. Once fouled its toast. I've never been able to clean one.
·New printers come with minimal ink in the cartridges.
·"XL" (high volume) versions of your printers ink cartridge is cost effective if you print frequently.

The black printer cartridge leaked a fair amount of ink in to the printer. I am getting all lights flashing and the printer won't even turn off when I hit the power button. I did some cleaning and it...


Sorry to hear that.. here are some instructions that should help you out:

Instructions

things you'll need: Microfiber cloth

1. Ink Cartridge Errors
2. Turn the printer on and open the ink cartridge cover. Wait for the cartridge carriage to stop completely before reaching into the printer.
3. Press on the top of each print cartridge, then pull the cartridges free from the carriage. Make sure you are only using HP cartridges labeled as "HP 60" or "HP 60XL."
4. Reinstall the ink cartridges and close the cover. If the ink cartridge error message displays again, remove the ink cartridges as before.
5. Clean the copper metal contacts on the cartridges using a dry microfiber cloth. If you still see the error message after you reinstall the ink cartridges, replace hem with new cartridges.

Print using the device's ink backup mode if you do not have a replacement for one of the cartridges. Remove the cartridge you cannot replace and close the cover and continue printing. The printer will automatically use the backup mode until you install a new cartridge.

Printing works but, paper comes out with faded picture. Ink cart. is new. I have a HP Deskjet D4100series disk???


Sometimes it takes more than a couple tries to get the right settings the first time you put in a new ink cart. Try using the calibration setting for the printer under it's properties?

How much ink is left?


Tip: If you're printing invitations, you're going to use a lot of ink..get a spare set of ink.
No. There is no way to know how many more pages, because, if you think about it, printing a photo (or invitation), obviously uses far more ink than, say, a letter.

Unable to print with new ink carts


Usually, that message means that your cartridge is dead. Try removing it, clean the electric contacts on it and the ones on the cartridge carrier. Put it back in. If that doesn't help, you will need to buy a new color cartridge.
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, you can still print in, what HP calls "ink backup mode". Simply remove the problem cartridge, and print with the remaining one, in this case, the black one.
  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.
