How long was the printer stored before you took it out to use it? You can't store a printer with or without ink cartridges in it. When a printer sits, the ink that is in the print heads settles and dries. Once that happens, the print heads are pretty much ruined. You can buy new print heads, but its usually cheaper to buy another printer instead. The reason it is not printing is probably because the print heads are plugged.
Open the cover. Press the Ink/maint button (triangle shape on button) this moves the carriage to indicate empty cartridge. keep pressing until carriage moves to the ink replacement position. Open ink cartridge cover and remove the cart. Ensure you remove the yellow tape on new cart' before installing and be careful not to touch the chip on the cart'. Push new cart' in until it clicks. Close lid (ensure clicks down), close printer cover and press ink button again.

Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.
