I have a C6180 which tells me to replace the ink cartridges.  Is there any way to display which ones are low?

I do not want to randomly change colors.

Thanks,

The printer software should have a ""Estimate Ink Levels" page that will tell you witch cartridge needs to be replaced.

You normaly have a option in the printer properties for ink levels.
Or you could use the HP Solutionjs Center or printer specific software (if installed).

I do not have the HP Solutions Center.  I have a slew of other HP programs, but none relate to Solutions. So I died on the first step.


Click on the "Start" menu if you have Windows XP or click on the WIndows icon for Windows Vista or 7. Click on the "All Programs" command and select "HP." Click on the "HP Solutions Center."

If you can't find the correct software or screens listed above by the other members then you could do a manual check.

Depending on your OS you need to locate the "Printers" or "Devices and Printers" in the Control panel.
Right Click properties on the printer you want to check the levels of ink on and request a test page. (print 2 or 3) Once they have printed, you can then just look at the Windows logo to determine which one is running low.

Please take note that this is not the correct way to check but it does give a decent indication if you can not get hold of the correct programs to check for you. (Programs are usually available on the driver disk supplied with the printer)
