HP Photosmart C6380 Ink levels incorrect

By pamlassiter01 ·
I was wondering if there was a way to disable the " Ink Level Guage Settings".
My printer keeps telling me to replace the ink cartridges because they are empty, so I replaced them with new ones and I still get the same reading "Low".
And the black ink does not show at all, and the magenta does not show up in printing. The yellow and cyan show a little, but very light. Please help...
P.L.

Consequently, if your use of printer ink is not sufficient to use up all of your stored cartridges - you are far better to BUY new cartridges as and when you need them, as opposed to holding them in stock (where they can still 'go off').
