checking ink levels

How do I go about checking the ink levels in my cartridges?

I have an "HP Deskjet 3940".

 

Thank you so much, I look forward to your reply.

Re: checking ink levels

You can check the ink levels of the cartridges by following the instructions mentioned below:

 

NOTE:  If a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, is installed the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable.

  • Make sure that the product is turned on and connected to the computer.
  • Click Start and click Control Panel .
  • Double-click the Printer and Faxes folder.
  • Right-click the icon for the product and click Preferences .
  • Click the Services tab, and then click Service this Device .
  • The printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
  • A graphic showing the estimated ink levels appears. The graphic shows both the color and black ink cartridge with the ink level indicated by the fill inside the cartridge diagram.

    Hi PAPAJOE181

     

    To check ink levels, see link below

    To perform a clean on the cartridges...

     

    On the front panel, press the Menu or Setup button (depending on the model).

  • Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).
  • The Clean Print Cartridges message should display on the front panel. Press Enter or OK to begin the cartridge cleaning process.
  • Hope this helps
