Re: DOES NOT PRINT
Hi, sometimes the ribbon can get bunched up when you install them, try this, manually turn the knob on the cartridge to take up the slack and watch very closely when you install the cartridge so that the ribbon stays flat all the way down into the machine, use a flashlight and a magnifying glass if necessary.

I have the same problem with a Kodak printer I have. I sometimes have to put more paper in or take some paper out to get it to print. It looked to me like the feeder roller was messed up.
I am going to get a new printer as soon as the ink in this one is used up.
Does the printer go through the motion of paper coming out when you press print. If it does and still no paper then the print heads may be the issue. Sometimes they do not come on the ink catridges. given how old the printer is proll better to replace it. If it doesnt go through the motion then its a software issue and need that fixed maybe by uninstalling and reinstalling.
I guess you are using tractor fed paper, the type of paper with holes down the side.
The problem you have is that the paper path has been changed on the printer to the single sheet feeder rather than the tractor feed, you will need to change this back again via the control panel, this is done something like this;
Put the printer Offline
Press the button under PaperWay
Change this to Tractor 1
If the above steps do not work disconnect the printer from the computer then try again.
Replace the old ink cartridge.
Verify that the unit is on. The On button is lit when the unit is on. If the device is not on, press the button to turn on the unit.
Open the print cartridge door. The print carriage moves to the far right side of the unit.
Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it.
When replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
When replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.
Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot.
If the print cartridge is being removed because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge.
Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging.
Remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
Removing the Tape from the catridge.
Will have Copper-colored contacts.
Plastic tape with pink pull tab ( must be removed before installing ).

The HP All-in-One prompts for an alignment of the cartridges every time a print cartridge is installed or replaced. Follow these steps to align the print cartridges from the control panel.
Top & Bottom not printing properly.
Load unused, plain, white letter, A4, or legal paper into the input tray
If coloured paper is loaded in the Input tray when the print catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load unused, plain white paper into the input tray when the Printer catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load and unused plain white paper into the Input Tray and then try the alignment again.
Press 6 to select Tools .
Press 2 to select Align Print Cartridge
The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
Load the alignment sheet print-side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK. Now the printer will print properly.
1. Prepare your doc/file for printing. 2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated. 3. Change printer setup to feed from rear. 4. Print.
Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."
In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer.. Good Luck
This has occured to a 2.hand printer I just bought. First head was clogged very much. I disassembled the head, used a paper towel soaked in luke warm water to clear off the over-gooed printing head surface. It is quite easy to get the head out and back in. Unfortunately my cyan ran out during clean-cycle, so I can't say if it also cured the passing paper problem.
Did any of the ribbon come away, or tear when it broke, i have heard of small pieces lodging in the carriage or feeder. Check this very thoroughly as blockages can be very tiny. Check you correctly inserted the ribbon too, and it is the correct type of ribbon for your unit. (sounds silly but sometimes it ccan be that simple) try reinstalling printer, is the ribbon cartridge faulty? check it.
Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself.
Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear.
Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
