How to print a supplies status page from an HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP

Unlike the configuration page, which displays setup information and current settings, the supplies status page from a Color LaserJet Cm1312 MFP displays how much toner is left in each of the color cartridges.  You can see the amount of toner remaining as a bar, as a percent, and also as an estimate of how many more pages you can print before it runs out.  The supplies status page also lists the part number for each toner, if you need to reorder any of the cartridges.

To print the supplies status page:

1. Press the Setup button on the operation panel (the one with the wrench icon on it, located below the arrow buttons) to go into the printer's main menu screen.

2. Scroll down using the down arrow button until you come to Reports.

3. Press the OK button to select it.

4. Scroll down to Supplies Status Page (the next option below Configuration Report).

5. Press the OK button.  The supplies status page will print out.
