Monitoring each color

Question

color ink level monitoring is poor with stock driver.Graphic shows 1 level for all 3 colors- not helpful when you need to know which ink well to fill. Clearly sensors are there for each inkwell, but mfg wants us to just buy new carts all the time. I'd like to modify driver so each ink level shows. Take advantage of the capability that is there.

This is a problem for every printer user who would like to do the same as you Unfortunatly the color with the least amount of ink determines the level that is displayed for all colors in the cartridge We do not know how to accomplish what you want to do and can find no reference to it on any of the tech web sites When you figure it out patent it and let us know! Good Luck
