I am finally running a little low on photo magenta after uncounted photos after purchase, and when my ink management window showed the status of my ink, all were getting down there except red and green haven't been used at all.
Did I miss something during set up?
Am I using my i9900 to it's fullest potential?
Please Help!

The software won't even start showing any usage until about half the cart has been used and the prism at the bottom of the 1st chamber is exposed. Lift the lid to bring the head into the middle and you can see how much ink is gone from the cart.

Opened her up and both red and green are full. All of the others are half way and below. What now?

Don't worry about the low (to seemingly none) usage of red and green. Those colors are used but in very small quantities. I am just now, after 6 months of use with lots of 13x19 and 11x17 prints having been generated, getting to the point where both my red and green cartridges will need replacement.

OTOH, the printer practically drinks photomagenta and photocyan...
