I updated the HP 9130 firmware and encountered the same problem. I turned off the printer, removed all the printheads and the cartridges, closed the printer cover and then turned on the printer again. After seeing an error message on the printer screen concerning the missing printheads, I opened the printer cover, replaced all of the missing printheads and the missing cartridges and then closed the cover. The printer then aligned printheads once as is expected after replacing the printhead and cartridges. Thereafter, it worked normally. I do not know why this procedure worked and if it will work in every case, but for now, it seems to have worked for me.

Try Cleaning the Cartridges manually and automatically.
For the cartridge clean it with a damp lint free cloth and also for the printheads wher eyour gonna be inserting the cartridges.
Follow these steps do do the automatic aligning and cleaning:

1. Right Click on your printer Icon
2. Go to Printing Preferences
3. Click the Features Tab
4. At the bottom of the window you will see Printer Services or Device Services. Click on it.
5. Choose Align Printheads on the list.
For Cleaning the Printheads, Instead of choosing Align Printer choose Clean Printheads.
I hope this helped.
Try Printing Again. I hope I was able to solve your problem. :)
Remove all the cartridges from the printer and check for expiration date on the cartridges, if the cartridges are expired, you need to replace them with HP genuine, use of refilled one's cause many issues.The cartridge that is compatible with this printer is HP 14 black and HP 14 tricolor.
To align the printheads at any other time:
Press Menu .
Press 7 , then 3 . (For the HP Officejet D 125xi press 3 , then 3 again)A page prints to confirm printhead alignment.
Same problem with my printer, called tech guy charged 100 bucks for nothing. Actually changed the cartridges. All cartridges have to be new and check the date on the cartridges, if installing 2006 cartridges, just use all of the same date , if using 2007 just use that date. It should work fine after that.
