It's possible that with your new computer, when you plugged in your printer, Windows could have installed a driver for it automatically.
If that's the case, it would have only installed the driver, and not the utilities that HP puts on the disk. Find your HP Printer CD and install the software on it. Or download it from HP's site to install the utility.

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.

Hp deskjet 5150 just replaced both inks...black



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Not printing black anymore


The link level display doesn't always show the correct information. To begin, try to wet the part where the ink flows, with a damp paper towel or just a towel. Sometimes the ink just dry up. If that does not work, you probably need another black ink. If there was a problem with the printer itself you would had been notify by the computer, you know, like a pop up window.

Can't find ink levels for my HP Deskjet 5940


The installation disk for your printer has a setup wizard that monitors your ink levels in your printer. Go through the installation again as it will not hurt anything and you should find it on one of your pop up screens that it leads you to.
