Q:
Since I upgraded to Windows Vista, the Status Monitor showing printer ink levels no longer works. What's wrong?
A:
Because your printer driver is included as part of Windows Vista, Status Monitor is not available for your printer. However, you can check the printer's ink levels in the Printing Preferences window of the printer driver. Follow either set of instructions below to view the ink levels.

To view the ink levels from an application:
  1. Select Print from your application’s File menu.


  2. Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window.


  3. Click the Preferences or Properties button.


  4. The Printing Preferences window appears showing your printer's ink levels. (Your printer's Printing Preferences window may look different from the example shown below).


Note: If the ink levels are greyed out, click Get Ink Levels to refresh the driver. The printer must be directly connected to the computer in order to show ink levels.

To view the ink levels through the Control Panel:
  1. Click  Start and open the Control Panel.


  2. In the Control Panel window, click Printer under Hardware and Sound.


  3. Make sure your printer is highlighted and click Select printing preferences. (If you do not see Select printing preferences, right-click on your printer and select Printing Preferences from the menu.)


  4. The Printing Preferences window appears showing your printer's ink levels. (Your printer's Printing Preferences window may look different from the example shown below).


Note: If the ink levels are greyed out, click Get Ink Levels to refresh the driver. The printer must be directly connected to the computer in order to show ink levels.
