SOURCE: I have a hp 7580
Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

try this link : I followed the directions and fixed the problem. the instructions that came with the new printhead weren't really complete.
Here's essentially all I did for my fix - Opened the printer top, turned the printer off. Removed the "bad" printhead, cleaned the metal contacts on the printhead and printer with windex. Closed the printer. Turned it on. waited for it to reset. Opened the printer. Turned the printer off again. Installed the printhead. Closed the lid. Plugged the printer in again. When it was ready I accessed the HP toolbox and alligned the printheads and cleaned the printheads. It worked. Here's a link with photos.

I had this same problem. HP worked with me to solve this problem for over a week. I jumped through a hundred hoops....all to no avail.
The bottom line ended up being....Buy a knew printer because it would cost more to ship and repair the printer than it is worth. A fifty dollar turn-in fee was made for up-grading. I did this because there is no solution when the printer refuses to align itself so it can print
from the black cartridge.....sorry johnfleff

Try to clean the contacts on Magenta cartridge and the printhead where the cartridge is connected.
Clean this with printer off and use lint free cloth which is slightly moistened.
