SOURCE: ink cartridge error
Check the date on your ink cartridge. I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job. It was printing fine and suddenly would not print. So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go! Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it. No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets. I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine. But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.
Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing. I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge. I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today's date but year 2004. After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine. And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
