There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

What worked for me was to pre-set the Epson Stylus Photo (in my case SP R1800) as the DEFAULT PRINTER before (very important BEFORE) launching Photoshop.
Following is a quick summary of key steps. It is assumed that you are familiar with a CS3 workflow. It is not a step-by-step guide for users new to this. All this is really adding is the tip I read in another forum (thanks to whomever it was) to set your photo printer as the default before launching Photoshop.
Before I did this, I had all sorts of problems that I had to fix with letting the Printer Manage, and making Levels or Brightness compensations in Adjustment Layers.
MacBook Pro (early 08, 2.6GHz, 4GB; Leopard; Cinema Display (calibrated and as dark as possible); CS3. Epson Ultra Premium Luster, and Epson Double-sided Matte.
Workflow: Calibrate the display; Install and update all the Epson Drivers; Select SP as Default Printer in Print and Fax System Prefs; Convert or assign Adobe RGB as Working Space and Image Profile; Choose SP in Page setup and the right paper size. In Color Settings Dialog under CS3 File Menu, choose North American PrePress; in the Print Dialog in CS3, Allow Photoshop to manage color (popup), and choose the Printer+Paper profile combo under the popup.
Then when you do Print, make sure all your paper settings are correct and Color management is set to off.
Now I can also nail prints out of Pages and Preview (but need to set color management to ColorSync in the Print Dialog).
No guarantee this will work for you. But it did for me, providing I was doing EVERYTHING ELSE by the book. You may want to cut up larger sheets of expensive paper to use as test prints first. Just make sure they will pass through the printer (don't cut too small, and make sure they are rectilinear). Choose a standard paper size that is slightly smaller than what you have cut. The check "scale to fit media. Should work

Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Try going to the Dell site and searching for that printer model. Then see if you need to have both ink cartridges populated and filled with ink, to make it work.
You might also clean the contacts on the ink cartridges, to make sure the printer knows you have both cartridges in the printer, even though they're not both filled with ink.
It just might require both to be filled, before it will print for you.
See what Dell says.
