Step 1: Stop Windows Installer From Popping Up b> The older a computer gets, the more junk it accumulates. A great number of computers out there don't start up without a thousand things popping up demanding your attention. Windows Installer is one of the more notorious pop-up offenders for Microsoft users. Stopping these pop-ups can prove challenging, however, there is a way.
On your computer's desktop, click on the "Start" tab, typically located on the bottom left of the screen (in Vista it may be the Windows symbol rather than the word "Start"). Now locate and click the program titled "Run." Vista users can locate this program by typing "run" in the search box at the bottom of the "Start" menu. Once "Run" is open, type "MSCONFIG" into the empty box and click "OK." This will open the System Configuration Utility. With the System Configuration Utility open, select the tab labeled "Services." Scroll down the list of services (it may be beneficial to click the "service" column to sort the services alphabetically) until you find the "Windows Installer" program. Now click the check box beside the Windows Installer name and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the System Configuration. Congratulations, you have stopped "Windows Installer" from popping up!

Basically your waste ink container is full. You can reset it but risk the chance of overflowing the waste ink, which would be very messy on your desk, if you don't actually clean it out. As far as that goes, you have to dis assemble the machine and manually clean out the ink as far as I know, good luck.
Here are some generic reset instruction I found for similar models.
- pull out the AC plug - put back the AC plug while holding down the
“menu” button and keep holding it (15 sec) - now you are entering
the MAINTENANCE mode and “error 46” pops up in the display - select 8
by using the arrow buttons ,push OK and select 0 and push OK - 00:00
00:01 OK (the display is showing this message) - now push the MONO
button 25 times until you see PURGE: xxxxx - Select 2, push ok,
select 7,push ok,select 8,push ok, select 3,push ok - the purge
counter indicates now: purge: 00000 - switch off the printer ,switch
it on - ready to print - CHEERS!
The only remark is that
your waste ink box is too full with ink. Ink flooding might be
·Machine off ·Switch on the machine while
holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off.

several times until you see “purge: xxxx” ·Press “2783” in order to reset
the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000” ·Press the "stop" button. ·Press “99” to exit the
Reinstall the printer drivers. (completely remove the old ones first) Try new drivers from HPs website if need be.
Check the print queue in control panel>printers to make sure nothing is lying in the print queue and blocking your printing.
Make sure that you are printing to the correct printer in the "print" dialogue box that pops up when you go file>print. Sometimes this can revert to "microsoft document printing" or somesuchand just save a file on your hard drive instead of printing (in techie
speak, printing does not necessarily mean print out on a bit of paper). Or may the "Print" dialogue box wrongly is pointed at another/old printer that still has drivers installed on your pc when it pops up, check before clicking the "ok" button..
I am trying to solve the same problem. I can get the document to print if I go to Administration tools then Services Locate Printer Spooler and right click, then select Proporties. The spooler dialog box will come up. Near the bottom "click" the Stop button to stop the spooler. Then click the Start button to restart and my documents will print. Just can't figure out why it needs a restart of the services every time a new print document is sent.
The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.
Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.
I.E. It will seize eventually....
Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...
Here is a chip reset procedure....
With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
When you tried to print, did you press the button for black or color? Either one of these will be the start button. If you hit color and it still prints in B&W, the other solution is to the pop-up box should come up then you click on advance options. file-print --then click on preferences just below your icon list of printers. Two pop-up boxes will appear. close the smaller one (I want to...), and the other box should stay open. You will see on the lower right corner the box to check off for "print color images in black & white. Make sure the box is unchecked. then click ok, and print.
