* use the replace cartridge maintenance of your printer. try to remove again and re-insert the cartridge, make sure you properly follow the procedures and the cartridge is place on right. * look for jam paper also inside the printer. push the feed button. * if your using Windows XP, go to your Control Panel, then Printer and Faxes, and look for your printer device name. right-click on it and check Set as Default Printer if is not. and right-lick again look and click for Use Printer Online if you see one. uncheck also if you see Paused Printing checked. You can also tweak the Printing Preferences... menu. I'll gladly help in any way I can

Hp deskjet 2514 reset ink level

You are not giving any error codes or messages from the printer, so I can't pin point the error. But you could try to check all contacts from the cartridges and in the printer, because jus a small piece of paper, sticky tape or dust can destroy the communication, needed to let the printer do its work. Al contacts should be clean and shiny. Make sure the cartridges gave a little click when you pressed them in place.

Reset ink

This model printer may only let you use genuine printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.
This means you need to purchase and install genuine printer cartridges.

Hi there,
  1. Click Start , click All Programs , click Hewlett-Packard , and then click Printer Assistant .
  2. Click Utilities .
  3. Click View ink levels .
    • If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
    • If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.
  4. Click Printer Maintenance .
  5. Click Clean Cartridges .
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
PLease note the if you do not take prints regularly there are chances that the ink has dried up in that case refill or replace the cartridge.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
