    Would I be a pain in the butt to ask why do you care or why it even matters? When it runs out, it stops and asks for another catridge. You kindly give it another cartridge, and it goes back to printing...



    :help:

    because you can check it before and after you do a print and see how much a print is laying down in terms of %s and then determine how much ink its going to take to do them 10,000 stickers in case you need to order more ink,LOL

    #17 should have the star or asterisk on. If not on, it will not show on your setup menu.

    If it is a PrisJet Extra it is not the same as a Valuejet and won't have the menu your talking about. There is no way to check the ink levels on that printer other pulling out the cartridge and checking how much is in it by it's weight.

    Flame Master is right just wait til the printer stops and change it quickly. If you are doing a long unattended run and your not sure if there is enough left to finish it just put in a new cartridge and then use th rest of the old one when you are right there to change it if it runs out.
