Re-insert the print cartridges. It is also possible that the heads are burnt. Get a new set of print heads (black/yellow) and install to the printer. If problem persists, clean the contacts on the printers. Use acetone + cotton swabs.
Place the bottom of the print head on a towel soaked in ammonia for an hour or more if needed. This will unclog it and it will work again. You may need to do this a few times depending on how bad it is.
Also clean all the metal contacts where the printhead attaches in the carrier.
Any chance the ink cartridges, which are separate from the printheads, are empty or dried out? If the printheads were exposed to air for more than a few hours without an ink cartridge on top of them, they may have dried out. HPs are especially bad for this, and BTW, never use a non-HP cartridge in a D145 - the inks aren't compatible and clog up everything (at least it happened to me..) You could also replace all the printheads and cartridges, but that'll cost you more than a new printer.
Does it happen when you try to print from an application - like Microsoft Word or even Notepad? How about printing a test page from the properties page of the printer?
Sounds like either the printheads are clogged or there is no ink at all. Try running a few cleaning cycles. If you're sure you have ink, then try cleaning or replacing the printheads.
