Hi there, You will need to install HP Solution Centre from your CD that you got with the Printer. That is the only way you can see ink levels. Below is a guide on how to install it from the CD. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02463264&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=445441#N741
Or you could try this option. Just download and install. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=oj-90246-5&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=4062&product=445441&sw_lang=

My HP DESKJET 842C prints test page in Black and white only not in color, how do I test my Color cartridge is working or not?


try to do the : You can check the ink levels here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02693389&tmp_task=useCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang...

The driver for this printer, when used within Windows 7, is built-in or 'in-OS' so you do not have access to the HP solution center or HP Toolbox.

Printing the self-test report will show how the ink is dispensed and what levels of ink are available. If on this report there is nothing shown, the issue is likely related directly to the cartridges rather than a software issue.

If this is the case, visit this article and browser towards the bottom:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud02948&tmp_task=useCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=...

There are steps on how to clean the cartridges as well as the underside of the carriage in case there is and debris or interferrance causing this issue.

Is it possible to check ink levels on an HP C4345 All-In-One Printer/Fax. I use Windows 7. Have gone into Properties, etc w/no luck. Thank you.


First, I would try printing a document, and a window should pop up in the lower right corner. If not, make sure that you have all the necessary drivers for the printer installed, as that is the only way to check your ink levels with the HP C4345 All-in-One Printer. In my experience, you must use new HP printer cartridges (rather than ink refills) to have an accurate reading of the remaining ink.

Try printing a test page, if the problem appears there too, it could be a print head problem. But try a new ink cartridge first, to make sure that's not whats defective.

Since it's new, you should consider exchanging it while you can.

My 8x10 photos have half a blue tint and half a yellow tint. I cleaned the heads and aligned the print cartridges and that didn't make a difference. Working with a HP2610. Thanks! Leslie

Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Step 2 - Check the printer settings

      2. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality.

Consider changing the following option:Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left.

Ink


Normally when you install the print software you install HP Director or solution centre software that has a estimated ink staus monitor..from user manual

Check the estimated ink levels You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace a print cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the print cartridges. Tip You can also print a self-test report to see if your print cartridges might need to be replaced. For more information, see Print a self-test report. To check the ink levels from the HP Director (Windows) 1. In the HP Director (or HP Solution Center), click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox. Note You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click Service this device. 2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear. To check the ink levels from the HP Image Zone software (Mac) 1. In the HP Director (OS 9) or HP Image Zone (OS X), choose Settings, and then choose Maintain Printer. 2. If the Select Printer dialog box appears, select your HP All-in-One, and then click Utilities. 3. From the pop-up menu, choose Ink Level. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

Print a self-test report If you are experiencing problems with printing, print a self-test report before you replace the print cartridges. This report provides useful information on several aspects of your device, including your print cartridges.
Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the paper tray.

Press and hold the Cancel / Resume button and then press the Start Copy Color button
The HP All-in-One prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
