Try to reset color ink level ,see how in the following link http://atta-metro.blogspot.com/2010/03/reset-ink-level-printer-hp.html after you complete , reset make sure your file free form colors , other wise print will ask you for change color , hope this help you
you can check the ink level from following steps Method one: Check the ink levels from the idle screen on the color graphics display
Look for four icons at the bottom of the color graphics display. The icons represent the ink level remaining in each of the four color ink cartridges: black, yellow, light cyan (blue), and light magenta (pink). A larger and more accurate view of the ink levels can be displayed from the Setup menu.
If an ink cartridge containing non-HP ink is being used, a question mark displays instead of the ink drop in the icon for that cartridge. The HP All-in-One cannot detect the amount of ink remaining in ink cartridges that contain non-HP ink.
Figure 1: Non-HP ink iconNOTE:
HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.
If a hollow ink drop icon displays, the ink cartridge represented by that color icon has very little ink remaining and will need to be changed soon. You might be able to continue printing for a short period of time with ink remaining in the print head assembly. Replace the ink cartridge when the Replace Soon warning message displays on the color graphics display.
Figure 2: Low ink level icon
When the Empty Ink message appears on the color graphics display, the indicated ink cartridge is out of ink. Replace the indicated ink cartridge.
Method two: Check ink levels from the Windows computer

There are 2 distinct method 1) Black has a bladder 2) Color contains sponges - we need 3 sirenges with needle to fill the Color cartridge with sponges - simply punch

2.Using the picture(on the cartridge which shows you the 3 differedcolored spots), fill syringe with the corresponding color ink.
3. Insert the syringe into the correct hole of the color being filled and push all the way down. Notes : You will feel resistance as there is a sponge inside.
So Slowly inject approximately 8ml of ink until you can just see the ink surface on the top of the sponge, any more and it is over-filled. If this happens simply draw back on the syringe a little.
