Check the estimated ink levels

You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer software or from the printer control panel. For

information about using these tools, see Printer management tools on page 115 and Use the printer

control panel on page 9. You can also print the Printer Status page to view this information (see

Printer status report on page 125).

To check the estimated ink levels from the printer control panel


From the printer control panel display, touch and slide your finger across the screen and then

touch Setup.


Touch Tools, and then touch Display Estimated Ink Levels.

NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you

receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing

delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until prompted to do so.

NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used

in another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or unavailable.

NOTE: Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways,

including in the initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges for printing, and in

printhead servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some

residual ink is left in the cartridge after it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/
