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.

Installed HP Deskjet D4160 on my Windows XP system. Worked well a year ago. Lost drivers when computer was cleaned. Reinstalled the drivers and it will print colors and graphics but will not print black...


Doe's it have a color and a black ink cartridge? Got unplug the cartridges and plug them back in. Go to the folder where the printer is installed in program files. Find printer toolbox program and run it. It should tell you ink levels.

How much ink is left?


Tip: If you're printing invitations, you're going to use a lot of ink..get a spare set of ink.
No. There is no way to know how many more pages, because, if you think about it, printing a photo (or invitation), obviously uses far more ink than, say, a letter.

hi,
Ink-backup mode lets you continue printing with one print
cartridge when the other print cartridge has run out of ink.
Ink-backup mode allows the printer to operate using only one print cartridge. It is initiated
when a print cartridge is removed from the cradle.
Exiting Ink Backup mode
Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode.


Cheers !!!!
