You can print a diagnostic test page as shown at HP's website here. The graphic between items 45 and 51 indicate the relative ink levels for the left and right cartridges.

I have an epsonstylus office TX600FW printer. After replacing new catridges, my black ink is not all working, but ink levels showing full.


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down.Also if the printer ink cartidges were replaced in the middle without the use of maintenance shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or
poor ink cartridge contacts.

If the cartidge was installed without the right sequence then it is possible that the software has errors. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.Hope the installed cartidge was the same type and model.

Epson D88 will not print, both red lights flash, message remove obstruction switch off and on. No change still 2 redlights flashing


The Lights can flash on an error and also iff the INK levels are down. You must check the ink levels and try to do a reset with printer software reinstalled.
Remvoe pinter from the PC, unistall and then reinstall to see if the printer shows the INK level exactly. If not replace INK cartridges to confirm.

Ink monitor is lost


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).

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.
