Remove the cartridges as you normally would. Then instead of replacing an empty cartridge, lift the latch on the top of the printhead. Now pull the printhead up and out of the printer. For pictures see the User Guide section on replacing the printhead: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/P703w/en/UG/maintena.htm#wp1187645 .
For some printers, you can clean the print head with bottled (or distilled water) and lint free clothes (Q-tips). Just dampen a bit, squeeze out the excess water. Then wipe away from the nozzles. Wipe the contacts on the inside of the printer as well. Then dry with additional clothes before reassembling. Make sure that the printhead latch is fully down before replacing the ink cartridges.
See if this solves your problem. You may need to power cycle the printer to clear the error. Unplug the data cable (if USB) and unplug the power cord from the printer and then from the wall. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting the power cord. Some printers may need a printhead replaced or additional service. (Usually the printhead is a non-refundable item if it doesn't solve your problem.)
I hope this helps.
