Checking the ink levels on an HP D1560 Deskjet Printer is a fairly straightforward process. After using a printer for an extended period of time, the ink eventually begins to get low. If the cartridge is not replaced in a short period of time, the ink runs out and the printer is unable to print. Luckily, HP built in a feature with its printers that allows users to check ink levels right from their computers.
