Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

First of all, this printer is not inkjet, is a laser printer. It has toner cartridges, not ink. Was the cartridges you changed, originaly? Every cartridge has a chip and the printer recognize them being originaly. If the cartridges are not originaly or compatible, the printer doesn't recognize them and can't read the chip to reset the message " replace cartridges" and doesn't print anything.
Firstly buy a black toner refill and a "CHIP". The chip is a small printed circuit carrying a chip, mounted on the top right hand corner of the toner cartridge held in by a small cross point screw.
Remove the cartridge and looking at the right end you will see a round (About 3/4 inch dia) plastic bung. Lift this bung out and carefully refill the cartridge (The refill supplier will probably clarify this I am saying). Replace the bung, clean up all the messy dust and remove the old chip replacing it with the new one. Make sure you dont lose the little screw and insert it fully without over turning it. Thereafter all should be OK.
If one of the cartridges needs to be changed, the printer will recognize this and it will automatically rotate that cartridge to the front of the printer.
Open the panel and follow the instructions that are shown on a sticker on the inside of the access panel. Removing the cartridges is not difficult. They do have a slight groove near the top that acts as a handle. You may have to rotate the cartridge up as you lift it in order to get it to come out. DO NOT FORCE IT. Once again, please consult the sticker on the inside of the access panel for details on cartridge replacement.
If you need to replace more than one cartridge, press the rotate button to rotate the cartridges to the one that needs replacing and repeat the process.
DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE SEALING STRIP OUT OF THE NEW TONER CARTRIDGE BEFORE PUTTING IT IN AS THIS TAB CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL DAMAGE THE PRINTER. (I've seen it happen.)
After you have replaced the toner cartridges properly, the printer should rotate the drum a few times to prime the cartridges. This is normal. You should see a readout on the LCD screen of the toner levels. (You may have to press a few buttons to see the status on them.)
================================================== If you need toner cartridges, head to your nearest office supply store such as Staples or Office Depot for replacements. (Staples will price match other stores if you give them proof of the other store's price.) When I last worked with this machine, the cartridges were still kind of expensive...but worth it for the quality that this machine gives you. ==================================================
