Contact support at HP.com and find out why the toolkit doesn't have the controls in them.

Those instructions I gave you are standard issue for all inkjet printers made by hp.

    I have a feeling that when HP release the Vista version of drivers for your printer they forgot to put those controls in there. By contacting them you should be able to find out if there is a version they are going to release that will have them or if there is another utility being created to support it.



    The toolkit has been created for all HP ink jet printer drivers from Windows XP and earlier.

When I try to print the page comes out blank. My ink levels are at more than half


Hi, 1st check whether your ink cartridge includes ink or not.( this can b checked within the software came out with your printer; the ink level) and some times not all softwares have these feature. Another way to check is print a test paper and check the the visibility of the font or pic if exist. 2nd try to update printer''s drivers to the latest. Or re-install software+drivers again. 3rd May be you bought the cartridge along time ago or recently but you didnt print frequently or use it ; to avoid letting the ink dries , after all these trials you get new one, and I have another solution which I do not recommend and you can try on your own responsibility, ( uninstall the ink cartridge and put half of the cartridge(don't put it all) 10 minutes in hot water ,of course not boiling one, this may let the dried ink to melt again and you would be lucky if it worked. Again you should try to buy a new ones if the 3 ways I mentioned didn't work with you. And if they are expensive, I recommend buying a new printer because their price seems close to a new ink cartridge(black+color) in some countries. good Luck.

How do I know how much ink is left in my c3135 printer


Welcome to Fixya.

Here's how to determine the ink levels for your inkjet printer :

HPC3135 Ink Level check

Please see my additional reminders :
  • If the printing quality diminishes, it's a good time to check your ink levels.
  • Change your cartridge often for good printing quality.
  • If you refill the cartridge, the ink level indicator may not be accurate.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to change your cartridge.
Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I empty an ink absorber that is almost full?


The answer is that you don't empty it. Ink absorber or over flow tanks are not usually emptied. They are replaced. The removal process is different for each manufacturer and/or model printer. You didn't say anything about the model and make or I could be more specific.

Contact the maker of the printer, check the price for a replacement ink absorber or over flow tank and they will give you instructions on removal and disposal of the full tank. Depending on what printer you have, it may be more practical and less expensive to purchase a new one instead.

Good luck!

How to check ink levels for HP6500A Plus Printer


Hi,

Normally there are 2 different ways to check ink level on any HP printer

First one is :

IF your printer is HP Officejet 6500 Wireless AIO,

Press Setup button ( ranch like symbol ) on printer front panel
Use Arrow key ( left or right arrow ) till you find Tools option - Press OK
User Arrow key to find Ink Level or Ink Gauge - Press OK.
It should display the ink level.

If it does not display ink level through this method, it could be for many reasons like printer is not aligned or one of the cartridge is not recognized etc.

2nd method is from PC
Open HP Solution Center
Click on Settings
Click on Printer tool box
Click on Ink level

Ron

We have a Dell 944 showing Error 1102 consult user guide...cannot find the user guide. We just replaced color ink cartridge with a re-processed one ordered online. Please advise...many thanks!.


Hi there
Dell Printer 944 error message 1102
Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message

Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them?
Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not
be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always
report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message.

Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems.
This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges.

Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges?
Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level. The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before
running out of ink.

Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset. If you are using refill or
remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep
getting “low ink” messages.

To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers:
1. Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc)
2. Go to Settings
3. Advanced
4. More Options
5. In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low
ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hp office jet 4215xi how to check ink level


HI

you may get the ink levels in several ways,

1) printing a test page.
2)if you got HP solution Center with the software cd of the printer ans it is installed in the computer,you can easily check the ink levels there.
3)sometimes ink levels option is available in the priner drivers in the printers and faxes in the control panel.
4)right clik the printer icon and then goto properties and then you will find tabs to check the ink levels,it might be in the service this device under the maintenance tab.

Feel free to contact me if there's any query.

   the thickness of the ink in the genuine hp cartridge is different from the refill ink. it will never match. so thats it. try with a genuine hp cartridge and  check whether the printer works fine. else it might be the problem with the printer.
