First make sure there is not any leakage on ink cartridges.

Also perform the ink cartridge cleaning operation.

Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press the OK or Enter button (depending on the model).

Could you please let me know how long have you been using those cartridges? I hope you know the lifetime of an ink cartridge. No matter what, whether you use them or not, whether you refill them or not, once it's unpacked from the printer and has been installed on the printer, most cartridges will definitely die after 5 months. In rare cases, some works longer or more than a year if you used to print few copies every month.

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels. If not the possibility of the printer head being defective is high. make sure the cartridges are of the original make.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts.

First step is to check if the cartridges are empty if you haventt replaced them lately.
There is an expiration date on both the cartridges.
Check if the expiration date is ending any day from today ( i.e the year should be atleast 2011 and if 2010 it should be more than Nov 2010 )
If any of the cartridges has expiry date less than Nov' 2010 then you will have to replace the cartridge.
HP Printer will not accept any cartridge with expiry date less than current date as they are designed the same way. ( though the printer must have been using the same cartridge for long time )
There is a reset for this printer : you can try this before replacing the cartridges
Press and hold Cancel and the Right Arrow while plugging in the power cord
Hope this would resolve your issue
