I cannot solve that, but when my printer does that, i turn off the computor and printer then redo the cording, unplug and plug it back and usualy it is enough. Sometime the cartridge in not well inserted, or there is a paper jam.
I have a similar problem except that now my printer do not even have the question mark. It is like it is totaly out of power

open the back door then clean the rollers with a lint free cloth or cotton ball that is moist with water. if it wont work and If you are using the officejet printer reset the printer by unplugging the powercord at the back of the printer and before you plug the power cord back in press and hold # and 6 key and do not release them until you plug the power cord and just keep holding them until printer would say semi-full nvram reset or if it turns on then turns off. once it says semi-full reset or it turns back off release # and 6 and turn the printer on. if it wont work then better throw your printer and buy a new one
