Same problem with me.
I openede the whole box ( 4 screws ) in the corners. Then I presed the tiny belt on the left side to its socket, cleaned the contacts of the cartridges (56,57) with water and made them dry.
Then I reched the position of the small door which is ment to be opened once you wnat to replace the cartridge.
After this the printer works again.

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.

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

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.
