Hi,

 

Could be missing something. Please go to the following link to download Full Feature Software and Drivers for your computer and install on your machine:

You may also need the utility too.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: how do I check ink levels on the deskjet 3050-3610

Hi,

 

This is extracted from paye #29 of its manual (j610, not 3610):

 

To check the ink levels from the Printer Software
1. Click the HP All-in-One desktop icon to open the Printer Software.
NOTE: You can also access the Printer Software by clicking Start > Programs > HP > HP Deskjet 3050 J610 series > HP Deskjet 3050 J610 series
2. In the Printer Software, click Estimated Ink Levels.

 

Hope this helps.

There is no where to click "estimate ink levels". It doesn't show this!

Re: how do I check ink levels on the deskjet 3050-3610

BH: I doownloaded and installed a driver update yesterday. Several months ago My printer stopped letting me check my ink levels. When I updated the drivers HP had two drivers to choose, FULL and BASUC. I chose the FULL, but the Basic installed, and still no way to check the levels. I don't even have access to a TOOLBOX! I did last year when I first installed my DJ 3050. I am on OS 7 64bit, and hooked through a USB. Any other ways to get back ink level checks? Thanks!
