How can i check which ink are out


Your printer should have come with a disk. This disk would have installed the necessary program that runs printing jobs, as well as keeps track of the ink level. Locate this program on your computer (may be under All Programs, Accessories under the Start Menu).
If not, Go into the Control Panel: (see below)
carsandcomps_3.jpg



Above, you see "Hardware and Sound"; and below that shows "View Devices and Printers. Click on this. It will then bring you into the below dialogue box, of which shows any and all printers currently installed and which are being used. (see below)


carsandcomps_4.jpg

Once you have located your printer here - (name etc). Go into your Start Menu: In the Search Box at the bottom type "programs"; look for the words "show which programs are installed on your computer", should be the fourth in the list. Below is what the list will look like. Find your printer here to ensure it's installed.

carsandcomps_5.jpg

Once you have determined it's installed, you need to locate the printer program in your file system. Once you retrieve this, click it to open it. The program should allow you to view the ink levels. With most printers, when ink is low it will automatically open a dialogue box showing the ink levels for each cartridge. If you're printer is not equipped with this feature, then the only way to know if any need changed is when printing a document, and any color is not present.
I apologize for such a long response, as I wanted you to know how to access these files. If you are printing, and all colors appear to be present, without fading, or "blotchy" spots, then your cartridges are still good. You should be able to do a print test (calibration or alignment test) to determine this as well.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My documents will not print the colored part. just Black and white


I would first check to see how low the color cartridge is. If it is out of ink, you will need to replace it.
Your Lexmark has two cartridges, one for colors and one for black.
To check the level of the ink cartridges, go to the Lexmark Solution Center. This is the software that was installed to run you Lexmark printer.
Check the cartridge ink level images that appear on each tab. If a cartridge is low, or if you have received an Ink Low message on the computer screen, install a new cartridge. An empty or low cartridge is marked with an exclamation point ( ! ).

To order print cartridges:

1 }}--> }}-->Open the }}--> }}-->Lexmark Solution Center .

2 }}--> }}-->Click the Contact Information tab.

3 }}--> }}-->Click Ordering Ink and Supplies.
For help installing a cartridge, go to How to install the print cartridge.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


    Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

    MY ALARM ON MY MP210 IS ON AN MY COLOR INK FLASHES WHAT DO I DO


    Hi there,
    Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
    You have 3 lamps
    (A) Alarm lamp
    (B) Black ink lamp
    (C) Color ink lamp
    Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
    a) If the ink lamp lights.
    Cause : Ink is low.
    Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

    b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
    * If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
    Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
    Action : Ink may have run out.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
    If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
    Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

    * If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
    Cause : Ink has run out.
    Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
    If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
    The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
    Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

    c) Only the ink lamp flashes
    Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

    Hope this helps.
    Please rate my response.
    Thanks
    Have a good day.

    Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
    Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
    When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.

    Printer


    Follow these instructions when the ink level is low.

    Note When the ink level for the print cartridge is low, a message appears on

    your computer screen. You can also check the ink levels by using the software

    installed with the HP All-in-One.

    When you receive a low-ink warning message, make sure you have a replacement

    print cartridge available. You should also replace the print cartridges when you see

    faded text or if you experience print quality issues related to the print cartridges.

    To order print cartridges for the HP All-in-One, go to www.hp.com/learn/suresupply. If

    prompted, choose your country/region, follow the prompts to select your product, and

    then click one of the shopping links on the page.

    For a list of print cartridge numbers, see the back cover of this guide.

    To replace the print cartridges

    1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.

    Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door

    to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the

    cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print

    cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove

    them.

    2. Open the print cartridge door.

    The print carriage moves to the center of the HP All-in-One.

    3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a

    print cartridge to release it.

    If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the

    slot on the left.

    If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge

    from the slot on the right.

    Chapter 8

    28 HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One series

    Maintain the HP All-in-One

    1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge

    2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges

    4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.

    5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print

    cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an

    airtight plastic container.

    If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the

    print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many

    countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge. For

    more information, go to the following website:

    www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/recycle/inkjet.html

    6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch

    only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

    1 Copper-colored contacts

    2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)

    3 Ink nozzles under tape

    Caution Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.

    Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical

    connections.

    User Guide 29

    Maintain the HP All-in-One

    7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the

    upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.

    If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.

    If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.

    8. Close the print cartridge door.

    9. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the

    glass with the top of the page to the left.

    10. Press the Scan button.

    The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print
    cartridge alignment sheet.
