It sounds like the printer is malufunctioning...it might be a problem with the printer head..see where the printer opens for the ink.. look at the yellow space for the ink.. remove the ink and take a cotton swab full of alcohol and clean it then let it dry and place the new ink cartridge there and restart the machine..see if it gives the same eror..if it does consider replacing the device

Won't recognize new yellow cartdrige


Try taking the color cartridge back out and very carefully clean the contacts on the printer with a Q-tip and some rubbing alchohol. Replace the cartridge and see if that doesn't fix it.
