Try the following tricks:
Press and hold the “left arrow” key.
Press the “Setup” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release the “Ok” button Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
Press and release the “Ok” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “Ok” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear.
Press Ok to clear”.
Press and release the “Ok” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
Press and release the “Cancel” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to
Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears.Please do not try to Print at this stage.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit Off and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer.
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “Use only the power button to shut down the printer” followed
by “Press Ok to continue”. Press Ok. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the
“One time ink initialization process”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
To verify printer functionality print a Self Test Page. If Self Test prints, then printer is ready for use.
Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

I had the same problem and took Guru NinaE advice....1. Unplug power cord from back of printer while it is on. 2. Wait for 60 seconds after it is in sleep mode. 3. Press and hold "Print Photos" and "Red Eye Removal" at the same time and while holding the two buttons down, plug in the power cord into the back of the printer. 4. The printer display should go blank or Reset might show up on the display. When this happens, touch the ON button and the printer will reset itself.

I know this sounds crazy but I did this and others have too, it worked. Hold down four buttons at the same time ( OK, Cancel, Black , Color ) and turn the power off. Note: I figured out how to hold the 4 keys down with one hand and push the on/off switch at the same time. Once you power the printer back up is will take a few minutes to go through maintenance. Then it will “hopefully” go back to normal. I did this 2x’s. HP gives you a procedure that doesn't work! They just want to make money off fixing it every 6 months. They are in the service, repair and “ink business” not printer manufacturing.
