Check the date on your ink cartridge. I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job. It was printing fine and suddenly would not print. So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go! Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge (office depot) I had bought some time ago and inserted it. No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets. I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine. But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.
Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing. I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge. I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004. After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine. And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge. You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you. And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful. But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

clean the cartridge rails and move the cartridge by hand if possible the full length of the rail, turn off, then on to reset. Hope that fixes it for ya

Check the expiration date on the cartridge, you may just need a new one. The date is printed on the side of the cartridge. They also just go bad sometimes.

Look carefully to make sure there is no paper jammed inside. Sometimes there can be a small piece of paper that tore-off in the gears causing a paper jam.
