Check estimated ink levels

You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace a cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the cartridges.

NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or unavailable.HP DeskJet 3700 All-in-One Series User Manual User Manual 157HP DeskJet 3700 All-in-One Series User Manual User Manual 34

NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable.

NOTE: Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways, including in the initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges for printing, and in printhead servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some residual ink is left in the cartridge after it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage.

To check the ink levels from the printer control panel

  • The Ink Level icons on the printer display show an estimate of ink remaining in the cartridges.

To check the ink levels from the HP printer software (Windows)

  1. Open the HP printer software. For more information, see Open the HP printer software (Windows) on page 18.
  2. In the printer software, click the Estimated Levels tab.

Use single cartridge mode

Use the single cartridge mode to operate the printer with only one cartridge. The single cartridge mode is initiated when one of the following occurs.

  • There is only one cartridge installed in the carriage.
  • A cartridge is removed from the carriage if there are two cartridges installed previously.

NOTE: If the printer enters the single cartridge mode when two cartridges are installed in the printer, verify that the protective piece of plastic tape has been removed from each cartridge. When the plastic tape covers the cartridge contacts, the printer cannot detect that the cartridge is installed. If there is no plastic tape on the cartridges, try cleaning the cartridge contacts. For information about cleaning cartridge contacts, see Cartridge issues on page 74. HP DeskJet 3700 All-in-One Series User Manual User Manual 184HP DeskJet 3700 All-in-One Series User Manual User Manual 36

To exit the single cartridge mode

  • Install both the black and tri-color cartridges in the printer.

Cartridge warranty information

The HP cartridge warranty is applicable when the cartridge is used in its designated HP printing device. This warranty does not cover HP cartridges that have been refilled, remanufactured, refurbished, misused, or tampered with.

During the warranty period, the cartridge is covered as long as the HP ink is not depleted and the end of warranty date has not been reached. The end of warranty date, in YYYY/MM/DD format, may be found on the cartridge as indicated:
Graphic: Location of cartridge end of warranty date

For a copy of the HP Limited Warranty Statement, see the printed documentation that came with the printer.

Tips for working with cartridges

Use the following tips to work with cartridges:

  • To protect the cartridges from drying out, always turn the printer off using the Power button, and wait until the Power button light goes out.
  • Do not open or untape cartridges until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the cartridges reduces ink evaporation.
  • Insert the cartridges into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each cartridge to the color and icon for each slot. Make sure the cartridges snap into place.
  • Align the printer for best print quality. See Printing issues on page 76 for more information.
  • When the Estimated Cartridge Levels screen shows one or both cartridges in a low state, consider getting replacement cartridges to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace the cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable. See Replace cartridges on page 50 for more information.
  • If you remove a cartridge from the printer for any reason, try to replace it again as soon as possible. Outside of the printer, if unprotected, cartridges begin to dry out.

Learn how to avoid paper jams

To help avoid paper jams, follow these guidelines.

  • Do not overfill the input tray.
  • Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.
  • Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat, and the edges are not bent or torn.
  • Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack of paper in the input tray must be the same size and type.
  • Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the paper-width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
  • Do not force paper too far down in the input tray.
  • Do not add paper while the printer is printing. If the printer is about to run out of paper, wait until the out of paper message appears before adding paper.

Solve paper-feed problems

What kind of problem are you having?

  • Paper is not picked up from the input tray
    • Make sure paper is loaded in the input tray. For more information, see Load media on page 10.
    • Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the paper- width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
    • Make sure paper in the input tray is not curled. Uncurl paper by bending it in the opposite direction of the curl.
  • Pages are skewing
    • Make sure the paper is loaded in the far-right side of the input tray and the paper-width guide is fit against the left side of the paper.
    • Load paper into the printer only when it is not printing.
  • Multiple pages are being picked up
    • Adjust the paper-width guide in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the paper- width guide does not bend the paper in the input tray.
    • Make sure the input tray is not overloaded with paper.
    • Make sure the pieces of the loaded paper are not sticking together.
    • Use HP paper for optimum performance and efficiency.

Cartridge issues

Identify whether a cartridge has a problem

To identify whether a cartridge has a problem, check the status of the Ink Alert light and the corresponding

Ink Level icon. For more information, see Control panel error codes and status on page 89.

If you get a cartridge problem message from the printer software that states at least one of the cartridges has a problem, do the following to identify whether a cartridge has a problem.

  1. Remove the black cartridge and then close the cartridge access door.
    • If the Ink Level icon for the tri-color cartridge blinks, the tri-color cartridge has a problem.
    • If the Ink Level icon for the tri-color cartridge does not blink, the tri-color cartridge does not have a problem.
  2. Install the black cartridge back in the printer, remove tri-color cartridge, and then close the cartridge access door.
    • If the Ink Level icon for the black cartridge blinks, the black cartridge has a problem.
    • If the Ink Level icon for the black cartridge does not blink, the black cartridge does not have a problem.

Fix cartridge problems

If an error occurs after a cartridge is installed, or if a message indicates a cartridge problem, try removing the cartridges, verifying the protective piece of plastic tape has been removed from each cartridge, and then reinserting the cartridges. If this does not work, clean the cartridge contacts. If the problem is still not resolved, replace the cartridges. For information about replacing cartridges, see Replace cartridges

on page 50.

To clean cartridge contacts

CAUTION: The cleaning procedure should take only a few minutes. Make sure that the cartridges are reinstalled in the printer as soon as possible. It is not recommended to leave the cartridges outside of the printer longer than 30 minutes. This could result in damage to the printhead or the cartridges.
