    I have the same problem. I put in all 6 new cartridges in our hp 8250. Have only used the printer about 4 times, but replaced the ink 'cause haven't used it in months. Called hp and they would not or could not tell me what the error meant. She said I have to buy a new printer because like a computer, the thing has to be turned on every month or it won't start. Stupid answer.

    Is it new, did it work before on the same network, did you refill the ink cartrages yourself, this will help figure it out, thanks, Gym

    I tried floowed the above directions three different tiems on my HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-all. I have not been happy with the printer. I do very little printing and realize I over bought when I purchased a color printer for around $250. It has lasted about three years but It seemed like the ink cartridges (6 cartridges) had to be replace often even though I rarely printed
    color. So today I plan to buy a laser printer and plan to stay away from HP or any other printer
    that requires multiple color cartridges. I think the ink cartridges are probably a real money
    maker for HP and others who manufacture them.
    Thanks for trying to help me.

I had this same problem but with a different error code. Try doing:
1. Unplug the power cord from printer.
2. Hold both o.k and Cancel simultaneously.
3. Plug the power cable while holding the buttons.

After I did this my printer reconfigured like it used to do and it was like it was new again.... well new plus a headache a managed to get while reading all these little posts. I hope this helps!

I, too, used the same solution of holding down "OK" "CXL" and "BLACK COLOR" at the same time. Printer will restart itself and everything is a-ok!
