Hello and Welcome to FixYa! Sir/Ma'am If the Check Print Cartridge message is shown and Red Light Flashing then it means that Either ink Cartridge is not installed properly or the function for detecting the ink level is disabled. For it Make sure that you install ink cartridges at correct position as indicated by the label on the print head holder. Press push mark until ink cartridge click into the place. If you are sure then you have installed ink cartridge properly then try following to stop the flashing of red Light.
Lift the lid to the printer (cartridges are on the right side.)
Turn the printer off, then power it on again.
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts.
Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct.)
Take out the cartridges and close the top cover.
Reconnect the power cord. The power and the resume lights (green and red) should be on.
Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and close the top cover.
Now Turn On the printer, Mostly this issue is resolved by this, But if still you get the message and red light still flash then surely its an issue of Ink Cartridge, your ink Cartridge is defective, You need to change the ink cartridge, Your problem will be solved. I hope this solution helps you.Don't hesitate to let me know if you still have some confusion in your mind.

The printhead not installed error means that the printhead and the printer itself are not communicating properly. This could be a temporary system error, the printhead (cartridge) having failed or the printer needing service.
Make sure that both cartridges (color and black) are installed correctly and are the Canon cartridges for this printer. Replace if they are low or have clogged with ink from going unused. (Note: the color cartridge goes on the left and the cover for each cartridge should close with a click and be flush against the cartridge.)
To check if this is a temporary error, with the printer on, unplug your data cable (USB), then remove the ink cartridges. When the printer indicates "Insert ink cartridges", unplug the power cable from the back of the printer. (I tend to unplug the data cable from both the computer and the printer and the power cord from the wall after removing it from the printer as well.) Wait a minute then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet (if unplugged) and then into the printer. Turn on the printer if needed. Then reinsert the ink cartridges when prompted to do so. (Make sure to fully seat the cartridges.) Close the scanner unit and print a calibration page if you see a prompt for one. Then reconnect your USB cable and try printing a job.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then decide if the printer is worth servicing if it is out of warranty or conact Canon if it is in warranty.
Hi, please perform these methods, 1. Check whether the installed cartridge is cmpactible to your printer model. 2. If the cartridge is a refilled one, then replace it with a new one. 3. Try connecting the cartridge to any other supported printer and test. If prints well without any problem, then the problem may be with your printer and not with the cartridge. 4. Clean the dot like contact terminals present in the printer and try again.
If still your problem not solved, then you have to make a service call to HP. All the best I hope this helps in solving your problem.
Hello! Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that
should reset them. If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.
