I have an Epson Stylus COLOR 880 and suddenly the amount of ink is not
shown. The outline is there only.
How do I get this back? Do I have to download the software again?

There are several possible causes.

Luckily, with the 880 you aren't dealing with any problems with the
"intellege" cartridges (bad contacts, bad firmware, bad chips, mis-reset
chips, etc.)

The only causes of this problem I am aware of are a corruption of the
ink status monitor drivers, (they might have been broken by another
piece of software you have more recently loaded), or a failure of the
printer to "speak" to the computer. That could be a port failure, but
more likely due to a bad cable or contact, try unplugging and replugging
in both sides of the cable with the printer and computer off.

If that doesn't fix it, try removing the ink status monitor software and
reinstall it.
