There is usually additional HP software provided on the CD the printer came with which which is capable of indicating the ammount of toner left int he cartridge. If no such software is provided, then you can only tell when your toner level is low by a flashing light on the printer itself.

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.
did you install the cd driver of your Hp psc 1410? if not insert the cd driver of your HP printer, after auto play goes click install driver, just follow the instruction on screen, then finish, remove the ink cartridge, check if ther a cover in the contact point of your cartridge, remove the seal,
HP cartrdges are 'BubbleJet'
that is the jets arer part of the cartridge.
These can Block, especially in warm climates.
Take cartrisge out.
Moisten a tissue with water-with some alcahol in its if available
stand the cartridge in it with the jets in the damp tissue for 24 hours
Then re try
Come back if still in trouble
It sounds like the color ink cartridge is clogged. You can try taking the color cartridge out, and take a paper towel and some windex with amonia. Spray the paper towel with the windex and then take the color cartridge, and wipe the bottom of the ink cartridge. After wiping the bottom of the cartridge, try pressing on the bottom of the cartridge (Print head) with the paper towel...You should start seeing some ink soaking into the paper towel. If you do not see any ink on the paper towel, then try wiping it again with the windex/paper towel. If after a couple tries, you can not get the ink to flow from the print head, then I would suggest getting a new cartridge.
The HP ink cartridges can get a bit tricky and the print heads will clog when the printer is left sitting for a long period of time.
Hope this helps.
Good luck. If you have any other questions, feel free to post them.
IF I have helped answer your question, please remember to leave a feedback and or rating for my suggestion.
Just to confirm pls: 1. the new print cartridges are original HP inks; 2. you have remove the bright pink tape from the ink cartridges; 3. the black is on the right side and the color is on the left side.
You can try removing both cartridges and clean the gold colored contacts where the pink tape was. Pls do the same to the mate pins in the cartridge holder in the printer.
Try again. If this does not be corrective, you may need to change inks again.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
