How to Check Ink Levels on HP Officejet 4620

The HP Officejet 4620 is a good all-in-one printer choice for both a home or small office. The ink is easily found in most retail stores, and is relatively inexpensive. But occasionally you might find yourself about to start a big print job, and you don’t want to run into an issue where you do not have enough ink. This might prevent you from completing the job without needing to run out and purchase ink at an inconvenient time, or it could result in some parts of your job being printed with some faded colors. Fortunately you can find some estimates of your ink levels either through the software on your Windows 7 computer or directly from the HP Officejet 4620 itself.

If you need ink for this printer, you can order it from Amazon.
