The printer display gives you complete, timely information about the printer and print jobs. Graphics illustrate levels of supplies. Menus provide access to printer functions and detailed information.

The top-level screen on the display has two areas: message/prompt and supplies gauge.

1 Message/prompt area
2 Supplies gauge
3 Print cartridge colors from left to right: black, yellow, cyan, and magenta

The message and prompt areas of the display alert you to the state of the printer and tell you how to respond.

The supplies gauge shows the consumption levels of print cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, and yellow). When a non-HP print cartridge is installed, a ? might appear instead of the consumption level. The supplies gauge appears whenever the printer shows the Ready state, and whenever the printer shows a warning or error message concerning a cartridge.
