I installed the BRAND NEW HP BRAND ink a few days ago.
Next day printed a black and white document.
A few days later tried to print a color document, paper jammed.
I unjammed paper.
Then it said error "INK CARTLIGE FAILURE" for pink and yellow.
I removed both pink and yellow and put back.
Pink now fine but yellow still saying DAMAGED OR FAILED.
I tried reseting by putting it off... no avail, still yellow ink failure.
I tested it by swapping the blues, pinks and yellows and despite mixing all the colors around a few times and the yellow one being in another color it continues to say yellow ink cartrige failure.
This model appears not to have a removable printhead.
I am unable to access the menu on the printer touchscreen as it wont go out of the error message.

Alright, Kitten Gazelle, sounds like you are having an issue with your inks. The first thing that we are going to do is we are going to perform an ink system reset tos ee if that will clear the error messages. To do that I want you to remove all the ink cartridges from the machine (while you do this inspect the interior of the machine to be sure that there is no paper or other debris left in the machine). Then when the cartridges are removed, unplug the machine for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Replace the cartridges as they are requested.
Do this and let me know if the same error message is left on the machine.
Also, are you connecting this machine to a battery backup, power strip, surge protector or wall outlet? Let me know!
PS I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that the weather there is as amazing as it is here!
