Sounds like the printer thinks the cartridge is empty.
Old PSC units had a 3 cartridge memory - you kept 3 cartridges and cycled them to trick the printer into thinking it had just received a brand new cartridge, rather than a refilled one.
I know this might sound silly but there is pieces of plastic on the bottom of the cartridges that cover the holes to keep them from drying out, make sure they are removed and then reinstall the cartridges and see if that helps.
What is not working? The printer or the cartridge? If it's the cartridge, try this. fold a paper towel in 4ths, dampen it and place on a flat surface. Blot the cartridge several times on the towel. You should get blots of black with the black cart. and three colors with the color or photo cart. If not... replace. If the printer carriage just won't move and you're shure you have power.. time for a new printer.
