Paper going through printer without printing,


Without more details it's hard to say, have you checked the ink levels? Double-click the maint.4.1.29.jpg printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). You will see the Epson status window. You will see the six ink cartridge icons and their ink levels. Click the "Information button" for more details about the cartridges. Hope this is of some help.

Check ink levels Use one of the following methods to check the ink levels. NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator will be inaccurate or unavailable. Method one: Use HP Solution Center to check ink levels HP Solution Center is software that acts as a centralized point of access for tasks such as scanning, printing, and copying. The software is part of the software package that comes with your product. When you perform a standard installation of the HP software, HP Solution Center is automatically installed. You must have the full-feature print driver, which includes HP Solution Center, installed to use this method. If you do not have the full-feature print driver installed on your computer, you can install it now. Alternatively, you can use 'Method two: Check ink levels from the software program' to check the ink levels. Click this link (c02463264) (in English) to see instructions for installing the full-feature print driver and HP Solution Center.
  1. Open HP Solution Center.
    • Windows XP : On the Windows taskbar, click Start , click All Programs , point to HP , and then click HP Solution Center .
    • Windows Vista : On the Windows taskbar, click the Windows icon (c01364735.gif), click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center .
    • Windows 7 : Click the Windows icon (c01364735.gif ), click Programs , click HP, and then click HP Solution Center .
  2. Click Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox .
  3. Click the Device Services tab, and then click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.

How do I check my ink levels


Method one: Check the ink levels from the idle screen on the color graphics display Look for four icons at the bottom of the color graphics display. The icons represent the ink level remaining in each of the four color ink cartridges: black, yellow, light cyan (blue), and light magenta (pink). A larger and more accurate view of the ink levels can be displayed from the Setup menu. If an ink cartridge containing non-HP ink is being used, a question mark displays instead of the ink drop in the icon for that cartridge. The HP All-in-One cannot detect the amount of ink remaining in ink cartridges that contain non-HP ink. Figure 1: Non-HP ink iconc00841629.jpg NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. If a hollow ink drop icon displays, the ink cartridge represented by that color icon has very little ink remaining and will need to be changed soon. You might be able to continue printing for a short period of time with ink remaining in the print head assembly. Replace the ink cartridge when the Replace Soon warning message displays on the color graphics display. Figure 2: Low ink level iconc00841630.jpg When the Empty Ink message appears on the color graphics display, the indicated ink cartridge is out of ink. Replace the indicated ink cartridge. Method two: Check ink levels from the Windows computer The estimated amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges can be checked from the computer. See the on-screen HP Director Help for information on checking the ink levels from the Printer
  1. Open the printer Toolbox. To do so, do one of the following:
    • Open HP Solution Center, click the Settings menu, then point to Print Settings , then click Printer Toolbox .
    • Right-click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the tray, then point to your printer model name, and click Display Printer Toolbox .
    The Toolbox opens.
  2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink level gauges display.
Method three: Check ink levels from the Setup menu
  1. Press Setup on the printer control panel.
  2. Scroll down and select Display Ink Gauge . The Ink Gauge status from the Tools menu will only display on the color graphics display.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate this solution. Thanks.

HOW DO I CHECK THE INK LEVEL ON MY HP OFFICEJET 6500 PRINTER?


I would imagine there is a program running on the taskbar (bottom right hand corner) by hovering over the icons you will see notes as to what program the icon represents. if one corresponds to the printer then click it , have a look around in that program and you will see the ink levels.
if not click the windows start button then programs to look for the HP software.
