How do I check to see how much ink is left in a cartridge

Customer Question

How do I check to see how much ink is left in a cartridge? I have hp deskjet 3845 printer. I am new to this and completely lost. Can you please tell me? I can print out things that aren't in black but anything in black comes out a blank sheet of paper. I am out blank ink, yes? Thank you.

Hello, and welcome to Just Answer!

Yes, it sounds as if you are out of black ink.

To find out how much ink is left in your cartridge, you need to open your printer toolbox:
  • Click Printer Properties/Services/Service this device.
  • Click the "Estimated Ink Level" tab.
You can then click "Print cartridge ordering information" if you need to purchase new cartridges.

I hope this information is helpful. If it is, please kindly click the "Accept" button, as it is the only way I am compensated for answering your question.

Bonus and positive feedback are always greatly appreciated.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX wishes!
