Question about HP DeskJet 1220c InkJet Printer
Hi I take it that you have removed the blue tape that is over the cartridge when you install it? If you have are they original or refills if refills change for an original.
If you have done the above then remove the ink cartridge and with soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the cartridge and also on the carriage.
When you have done the above try printing again if still not printing then check the following.

SOURCE: Color printer won't print color
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

Have you tried to replace the current cartridge with a new one? It is not uncommon for even a new cartridge to be faulty, It happens sometimes.
Also, look in your printer manual for the procedure on how to run a nozzle/cartridge cleaning and alignment.
If that does not resolve it, take the cartridge out, grab some rubbing alcohol and some q-tips. Put some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and GENTLY wipe the contacts on the cartridge AND on the contacts in the printer where the cartridge installs. BE CAREFUL! Make sure no cotton from the q-tip gets left behind on either.
Good luck and thanks for using the fixya forums!

If you take the empty cartridge out and put a small piece of electrical tape over the little window on the front, the printer will think the ink is full.

Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.
