Printer does not print at all

Did u remove the cellotape that covers the printhead of the new cartridge?
Other solution:
if using XP: use the HP toolbox to prepare the new catridges for firsttime printing.

This is the title and below is the body

Hi there the noise you are getting might be the ink carriage stuck or the paper pickup lever stuck in position. Check these move freely. Also most printers are compatible with Mac now all you have to do is either check on the website for that printer or you can download new drivers for them at the manufacturers website.

Thanks J
