i had the same problem! I replaced two cartidges at once and one of the lights continued to stay red,The red light stayed on and therefore the printer would not print !!!!!! I decided to fool the printer-----I took the cartridge out and inserted into my chip resetter and then back into the printer--bingo worked like a charm.....I noticed the same type of problem when I changed ink cartidges befor when I was using different types of ink.
I think that the printer doesnot always know that there is still ink in the cartridge that has been removed and then reinserted into the printer again even if its a new one. Using the chip resetter reprograms the cartridge. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. The chip resetter cost about nine dallars--buy one on line. good luck-----Glenn

go to dell AIO center
click maintain/troubleshoot on the top
under trouble aio problems - click ink levels
click maintenace tabs
and then clean print cartridges and align print cartridges. then try printing a test page.
if this does not work, remove the cartridges and install them again.
let me know how it goes

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.
