Checking Ink Levels for HP Deskjet D5560 Printer Series

This document is for the HP Deskjet D5560 and D5568 Printers.
You can check ink levels to determine how soon you might need to replace a cartridge. The ink level indicators show an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the cartridges.
 note:
Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low-ink levels, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable.
