Question about Printers & Copiers
First, try resetting it by just unplugging it for a couple of minutes, this should let it start working again
Next, you should Clean the print cartridge contacts
Caution! Do not remove both print cartridges at the same
time. Remove and clean them one at a time.
Make sure you have the following materials available:
• Cotton swabs or any soft material that will not come apart or leave fibers (for example, a scrap piece of clean cotton cloth).
• Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water may contain
contaminants that can damage the print cartridges).
1 Turn the unit on and open the print-carriage access door.
The print carriage moves to the center.
2 After the print carriage has moved to the center, unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
3 Lift the latch to release the print cartridge, then pull it out of its slot.
4 Inspect the print cartridge contacts for ink and debris buildup.
5 Dip a clean cotton swab into distilled water, and squeeze any excess water from the swab.
6 Hold the print cartridge by its sides.
7 Clean the contacts.
8 Place the print cartridge back into the holder and close the latch.
9 Repeat if necessary for the other print cartridge.
10 Close the door and plug in the unit.
Because you removed a print cartridge from its holder, the HP PSC needs to align the cartridges.
11 After the message appears in the front-panel display, press Enter to align the cartridges.
Next reset the factory defaults
You can restore the original factory settings to what they were when you purchased your HP PSC. Choosing to restore your factory defaults restores all settings, except date information.
You can perform this process from the front panel only.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 5, then press 3.
This selects Maintenance, and then selects Restore Factory Defaults.
The factory default settings are restored.
Let me know if you have problems with any of the above and I will help you get this working again.

Tips for a great answer:

the handle until the door locks into place.

superior print quality when printing photos. With the
color and photo print cartridges installed, you have
a six-ink system. See how to print the best quality
