Try checking to see if your HP Digital Imaging Monitor is loaded & running. If you don't want to reinstall all the software (depending on wether you have broadband DSL) it's about 300Mb for XP or 43Mb for the bare drivers, then your only alternative would be the EWS program (if your going over ethernet), or the printers display screen. In your case I would check the whole software suite, a reinstall might help, but check first to see if all applicable HP program services are loaded & running (using the Task Manager).

HPD4260 unable to check ink levels via printer services


Hi there,

There are 2 ways to fix this.

First one is simple, While the printer is powered on, Disconnect the power cord from the back of printer and wait for 30 seconds and reconnect. You should find the ink level shown when you print.

Second step is is Uninstall the software from software disk re-install again.

Apart from these 2, there is no alternate way to check ink level on Deskjet printers

Regards,
Suhail

I installed an allegedly compatible cartridge and it didn't work. So I fiited Epson cartridge and the printer works but does not monitor the ink levels. In control panel - printers - printing...


Do the process once again but this time remove the printer and unistall the sofftware. Now reinstall the software, then connect the printer as it will be detected as the new hardware and will be installed.
Now the printer ink level must show properly in the display and it must print correctly.
Comment if this tip worked.

I have a message showing bk tank - code


Its detecting an incorrect ink tank.

The printer is not happy with one of your tanks. Make sure you have PB inks if it is a PG printer.

More probably the job you are printing requires the other black ink tank. Very important to make sure your status monitor is installed correctly, make sure when you send a job that it displays the ink tank levels and not question marks. You should be able to find out roughly how much ink is left through the driver (status monitor) and also what type of black is installed. If you cant, you have not got the 'Status Monitor' installed.

Cannot see ink levels


Inkjet printers do not detect ink levels period. An estimate of level is made by the software. It calculates the volume of ink that was dispensed during printing pixel by pixel. If you re-install the software the tally is lost. If you want to convince the software that the cartridges are full then go though the procedure of renewing the cartriges but put the old ones back in. If I were you, I'd completely ignore the displayed levels of ink, its worthless technocrap. Your eyes are the best judge of whether the cartridges need replacing or not when you look at your prints.

Refilled black ink before it ran out-now can use at all


After hours of reading about this I finally found the solution. This will NOT reset your levels but you will be able to print without being told you have empty levels.

Start, Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes.
On the next screen, Right click on your printer then on Printing Preferences. Now select the Advanced tab.

Near the bottom left, you will see more options. Click that and then Appearance. Check NEVER display printing status and make sure under Complete-A-Print, all is unchecked. Click OK at the bottom.

You can print without the stupid messages coming up. Dells printer ink cartridges have a computer chip in them and the refurbished ink does not which causes these error messages telling you your ink cartridges are empty.
