Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below
Take out the cartridges from the unit .
Make sure the unit is connected to the wall jack directly without any surge protector.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
Do not release the keys after a few seconds u will find the hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
after one minute turn on the prnter . it will go into alligment phase > let it finish .
after its done > try to make a copy .
8 Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
9 If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.
Let me know if this helps.
If it doesn't, I will research it further. If it does please rate it.

I had the same problem. It was solved once I bought an original color cartridge. Refilled cartridge seems not to work on this printer. Glad if it might help.

Make sure that your buying a new Tricolor as the same and Geniune too.
Only solution to this is put it properly inside your printer.
At first sometimes New Cartridge are being initial & calibrate by your printer before it works.
Power Off first your printer and put the cartridge inside. If the problem still exist then put back again your old cartridge and identify what is the problem occur before you put a new cartridge on it.

Sounds like your cyan print head is clogged. You can try to get it flowing yourself by rubbing the print head with a wet paper towel. If you press the print head on a dry paper towel you should see three distinct lines of color. If you still don't see the cyan, try letting the print head rest on the wet paper towel on a surface that ink can be cleaned up from or one you don't care about staining. If the cyan still won't flow, you should go back to where you purchased it and return it for a new one.
